Time for some scrapbooking!

Hello and welcome. Today I am sharing a Disney layout with you. I am still working on my trip from last year and hope to get it finished soon since I have like 3 trips after this one to do!!! At least I won't run out of things to do.  Been working on shirts and other items for customers, but do have this one to share with you.  For this project, I used my Cricut Explore and files from Miss Kate Cuttables and PPBN Designs (new name change coming).  For the 2015 Mickey and Minnie, these are from Miss Kate Cuttables and also the Mickey hands.  The Mickey and Minnie borders are from PPBN Designs.  I did change the Minnie border because there were so many little odd pieces that I just cut the bow red and used a white pen for the dots.  I wasn't going to try to put all those tiny pieces together.  The dots were just made with paper punches.  These pictures are hard to tell in this picture are of Main Street of the snow falling before the parade and the start of the Very Merry Christmas Parade.  Hopefully, next time my pictures will be better because I ordered the Shotbox and it should be here on Friday.  Will give a review on that too.    Enjoy your weekend and will try to see you again next week.  We might take a weekend away which is much needed for the hubby! Happy Crafting.

Time for a Halloween Celebration!

Welcome. Today I have lots of goodies to share with you. It's that time a year for those little ghosts and goblins to visit and I will share some great ideas with you for a fun party.  I would like thank my friends over at Apexembdesigns for some wonderful svg files.  Be sure to visit their site by clicking their name.  They offer the latest and greatest in embroidery and cuttable designs.  They also make custom designs too!  Be sure to sign up and receive free svgs.  Right now, you will find all Halloween designs on sale for 25% off with code Halloween.  Now I would love to share some of my creations with you. 
Time to set up for a party and you know it is so much fun to decorate your table and make your guest marvel with how creative you are!  I have created cute drink jars that have the cutest little witches.
           I used printable vinyl and put these on the cute jars, added some ribbon and cute straws. 
                  This is the cute witches that are available in this set called Witch Pack Cuttables.
Now every party needs games and I made a pumpkin toss game with images from Pumpkin Faces cuttable.  I cut the pumpkin and features out of cardstock and made a hole in the mouth to toss plastic ping pong balls through.  I mounted it on foam core that I made into table board.  Lots of fun playing this game.
This is called the Pumpkin Faces Cuttable and has so many fun faces you can make for cards, scrapbooking and lots of other fun crafts!
No party is complete without a photo booth and some props.  I just took a piece of foam core to create a frame, painted and decorated it.  I used Ghost Cute Cuttables to help decorate the frame and for the props I used the Halloween Masks Cuttables.  I loved these mask and in Cricut Design Space, I used the slice feature to cut eyes in the mask to be used for the props. 
                     Look how fun these masks are and with 8 different masks to have fun with!

                                   These cute little ghosts are from the Ghost Cute Cuttables.

Well no party is complete without a cool shirt to wear and this is a cute one, of course, my model is my sweet granddaughter Peyton.  I used  Glitter Heat Transfer Vinyl and cut with my Silhouette Cameo and used one of the designs from the Boo-tiful Cuttable

Love all these adorable designs on the Boo-tiful Cuttable.  I hope you enjoyed and please go visit my friends at Apexembdesigns at

Vacations over and time to get back to crafting!!!

Hello and welcome. Glad to be home, but we had a fabulous trip. This time we went to Pennsylvania and visited Hershey, Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Gettysburg. I loved them all, but hubby loved Hershey the best!!! Wonderful and delicious place to visit. We got home and did laundry and stuff and I headed out of town again. I went back to my hometown in Ohio for my 45th class reunion. Hubby couldn't make this trip due to work and some changes they were doing, but I had so much fun catching up with old friends.  Well I didn't have much time for crafting so today I worked on a sign I have been wanting to make so I am sharing this with you.  I like working with pine wood because it sands nicely and holds the paint so well and you get no blemishes.  This is a piece I had left over from another project.  I was a 1 x 4 and was 22 inches long. 
I quickly ran sandpaper over the top and the edges to smooth it out and gave it a base coat of Waverly Chalk Paint in Ivory.  I cut out my design that was purchased from the Silhouette Store and applied it after the paint dried.  I used 651 vinyl.  I used the Silhouette Cameo for this cut.
             I then gave it a coat of Waverly chalk paint in Ocean and completely covered it.
When it dried, I gave a second coat.  As you will see in the picture, my e had a wrinkle in it and before I started painting I tried to make sure nothing would leak under it.
When the paint was completely dry, I pulled off the vinyl and tomorrow I will add some wax on it.  Using the pine wood helps because the vinyl will grab it good after a little sanding and the paint doesn't seep.  Well I will see you next week with another project.  I better be getting some scrapping done since I am 3 trips behind!!!!!

Hello and welcome. Today I am sharing just a couple projects because I am preparing for a trip which we will leave on tomorrow. Looking forward to getting away. Today my projects are ones created with my Silhouette Cameo and my best tool, my heat press.  I totally love this machine and use it many times a week just for myself.  I actually did a couple more things, but forgot to take pictures and it is late when I am doing this so will share later.  I had a friend want shirts for a local school so I found a panther on the internet and made a svg file of it.  I also used a font from for the lettering.  This turned out really good.  I think I made 3 of these shirts.
I am kind of daring sometimes and decided to see if I could heat press HTV on a fabric album and it was a breeze.  Now I have a album ready for the scrap pages I am working on.  I used the Walter font also from and used a white glitter HTV which does not show sparkle in the picture.  Nothing will be save now, love using vinyl.  That is it for this week and hopefully I can pull something together for next week, but if not is because of this vacation.  Have a wonderful and save holiday.
