Belle LO

First off let me start by telling you that my middle daughter Isabella Is OBSESSED with Snow White. Half the time if you ask her her name she usually says Snow White or Pink (yes another obsession). 

Well a couple weeks ago we went to Disneyland and SNow White was nowhere to be found, but guess who we did see. Yup...Belle. 
Bella do you want to go meet Belle (head nodding yes) You can see the excitement spilling across her face. This is my very shy little one when it comes to people she doesn't see very  often. But no she goes right up to Belle and starts talking. Isn't this just one of the greatest pictures EVER! Well I love it. 

Anyways my daughter still calls herself Snow White but...She talks NON STOP about Belle's Hair and how pretty it is and "No mom you have to wear it like Belle. On the side like this. There mom that's pretty just like Belle." 
Here is the 2 page LO I did for the pictures. Everything was cut from the Disney Dreams Come True cartridge. And yes Belle was a pain to piece together. Even cut at 8 inches. The background paper is from Hobby Lobby The Pink Studio paper. It says princess saying all over it.

I added yellow rhinestones with my I-rock o her ears and her dress. For the whites of her eyes I just used my white gel pen. And I used stickles for her lips.

 I also cut the mirror and used this as my journaling piece. And I i-rocked that too with yellow jewels.
 This Belle was cut at 5 in.

All You Need is Love Card

I was soo excited yesterday when I went to the mailbox
and found my stamps came from Lauren at 40:31 Creations. I could not wait to play with them but of course I had to work :( But it's okay because I played today. 

I absolutely LOVE Christina over at Card Creations & More by C's 
card she made with the tree cut from Serenade cartridge. Click on her name 
and it will bring you to her card I fell in love with. So I had to go buy the 
cartridge. So I finally used it. I only cut the tree part but not the branches. I cut 
two layers in separate colors and just placed them side by side to kind of act 
like a shadow. I then used theGeorge & Basic 
Shapes cartridge to cut hearts and placed them on the
tree instead leaves. The paper is from DCWV Madly in Love stack. The
 heart border punch is a Stampin Up punch.

I made 3 versions of this card but ended up liking the 1st version the best. 
Don't you just LOVE the stamp. I DO!!! All you need is love. And they stamp
so great. I am soo excited

 At the top of the tree I stamped another sentiment from 40:31 Creations Love stamp set.

And for the last card I stamped the sentiment onto the tree.

Card Creations & More by C Challenge #1

Today is challenge #1 over Card Creations & More by C. The challenge is Anything
but a card. I decided to make piggy banks for my kids. The kicker here is
they do NOT get the money. I know sad for them , but yay for me
and the hubby. Everyday we are putting a $1 in each of their
banks. Then that is the money that we will use to buy their Christmas
presents this coming year. I hate the feeling of trying to come up with
the money around Christmas time. This will be better since it will
already be there. Its not all coming out of our bank at once. :)
So I made these from empty drink mix containers I had around the
house. Here they are before the transformation.
OK for my big boy Daniel, he dreams of baseball 24/7. So I used Sports Mania
cartridge to cut the saying Baseball is life. I finally used my I rock to put the 3 orange
rhinestones down plus the blue rhinestones for the dots of my
i's. I used the present border punch from Martha Stewart for my
bottom border. I added orange stickles to the ribbon on the presents.
The baseball was hand made. I used my Stampin up circle punch
and added some stitching.
For Isabella I had to put something princess on
hers. I think I gave birth to a real princess. She wakes up every
morning and goes and grabs her tiara and wears it all day long.
It does not come off till she is getting into bed. hehe this
girl cracks me up. I put used Martha stewart border punches
again for the top and bottom decorations. The tiara is cut from
Twinkle Toes. The little girl is cut from the same
cartridge. I then made a banner sign and stamped a Pink
By Design stamp saying Sweet n Sassy on it.
And the last one is for my baby girl Alexie. She is
such a sweet and mellow baby girl. The two border
punches are also from Martha Stewart. The toy cut is from the
B is for Boy lite cartridge. The sentiment baby is from Papertrey Ink. Enjoy.
Supplies Used:
Sports Mania cricut cartridge
Twinkle Toes cricut cartridge
B is for Boy cricut lite cartridge
