Let's Hop!

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends! Today is all about hopping.....a blog hop that is. As a Design Team member over at Scrapbook Blessings Club I thought that I would join in on a hop that they are part of.  The hop is "Create A Card Blog Hop".  I recently found a "new" favorite card to make. It is called a pop-up diorama.  I got my directions from Julie Davison on SplitCoast Stampers.  Head on over here to read all about how to create a pop-up diorama card.  It is much easier than it looks!

 This is the card that you saw over at Scrapbook Blessings Club and it was my first attempt.

 This is my second card that I made using this technique. 

 Inside.....I left the message area blank.  I am not sure what I will put in this one.....maybe an image instead of a greeting.

This is my favorite!  It is the size of a gift enclosure card.  I just thought at a smaller size this card was extra fun!!  Plus out of an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of card stock you can make the above card and this one out of the one piece of card stock!



  • Easter Wishes stamp set by Close To My Heart
  • Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge by Close To My Heart
  • Paper, stickers and ribbon from my stash
  • Stickles
  • Liquid Glass by Close To My Heart
  • Embossing Folders
  • Kaleidacolor Birthstone ink pad
  • Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink pad
  • Impress Pansy ink pad
  • Punches (circle and flower)
  • Chalk Ink
For these cards I really felt like I was "shopping" in my craft room!  I used a stamp set (Easter Wishes) and an embossing folder that I had never used before. SO fun!!  Also, I just love that the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge coordinates with the Easter Wishes stamp set.  I cut the eggs out on the Cricut and then stamped them.  I also used some ink pads that haven't been out in years! I used them on the eggs.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hopping along.  Should you get lost during the hop just head on over to the Scrapbook Blessings Club and the line up of blogs is listed.  Have a magical day!

Wordless Wednesday

My favorite time of the week has arrived. It is Wordless Wednesday hosted by Deb over at Focused On The Magic.  Be sure to head on over there and check out all of the great blogs that have linked up.

 The theme this week is:

Disney Royalty 

I recently returned from a wonderful trip to Disneyland!  It was magical! One of the highlights for me actually was in California Adventure.  I was walking by myself to the lockers and I felt someone come up behind me.  Well that someone was Pluto!  He put his arm on my shoulder and together we walked.  SO fun!!  Over at Disneyland I had much fun riding Big Thunder as many times as I possibly could.  I love that ride....The wildest ride in the wilderness!!  It was a great vacation and of course I can't wait to go back!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope that you have a magical day!!

Challenge Time!

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends!  It is time for a new challenge over at Scrapbook Blessings Club.  Our wonderful sponsor is A Day For Daisies and our challenge for March is Pop-Up cards!  Who doesn't love a pop-up card!  Such a fun card and easy technique.

Here is the front of my card.  A BIG thanks to A Day For Daisies for this awesome image! As soon as I saw it I knew it was the image for me! 

Miss Cinderella is my "Pop-Up" on the inside of my card.

My tip:  Stickers make a great "Pop-Up" element!


  • A Day For Daisies Image "Fit For A Princess"
  • Card stock, ribbon, stickers from my stash
  • Glossy Accents
  • Stickles
  • Prismacolor Colored Pencils
I really enjoyed making this card.  The image was awesome to work with, I used tons of stuff from my stash and it is DISNEY!  What more could this Crafty, Disney gal ask for?

I hope that you will join us for this challenge over at Scrapbook Blessings Club.  Head on over here to learn all about the challenge and to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a magical day!!

Winnie The Pooh

Hello Disney and Crafty friends!  What is everyone up to?  I have been busy making cuts for a Disney swap that I am in.  My character to cut is Winnie The Pooh.  After I finished him I felt he needed a "Hunny Pot" to go along with him.  Here is my assembly line. I made 20 of each.

There are 20 participants in this swap. It is a Valentine Disney themed swap. I am very excited to see what 20 cuts I receive in return.  Do any of you participate is swaps?  If so, tell me about your favorite one.  Thanks so much for stopping by! Make it a magical day!

It Is Challenge Time!

It is Challenge time over at Scrapbook Blessings Club!  This month we are spotlighting the "OMBRE" technique. Our awesome sponsor for this challenge is Meljens Designs.  I would like to thank Meljens Designs for the super cute image, Sweet Chocolate Bar, that I used to make my card.

  • Sweet Chocolate Bar by Meljens Designs (go here to purchase it)
  • Card stock from my stash
  • Two white paper doilies that I added color to using my brayer 
  • Journey Glaze
  • Stickles
  • Ultra Fine Glitter
  • Sentiment by Hampton Art
  • Inks:  Pansy by Impress, Soft Lilac by Memories and Cocoa Powder by Fun Stampers Journey
  • Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol
  • Hear embossing folder by Cuttlebug
I used the Journey Glaze on my chocolate bar to give it a more realistic look (though you cannot see it in the photo).  I love these little doilies!  I recently purchased them and they are the perfect size for a card!!  This technique was so much fun and has endless possibilities.  For the first time in years I used my brayer! LOL  I hope that you will join the February challenge and give this technique a try. Head on over to Scrapbook Blessings Club and check out all of the details for this challenge. I cannot wait to see what you create!!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I do appreciate it!  Have a magical day!
