Get Well Minion Style

MDs friend is going in for surgery this week and MD wanted to make a get well card for her.  Her friend loves the Minions so I thought a Minion box card would be perfect!

Each minion was made using the owl punch!  Here’s the link to the YouTube we used to create the minions. http://youtu.be/G0xGl73nmLk.

I think she’s going to love it!!  Those adorable Minions to keep her happy!  Think outside the box!

Have a Magical day!

Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Fathers Day!  I hope you got a chance to celebrate with your father or at least think about your dad today.

Today we are going over my parents house for breakfast. Hubby is of course making his yummy bacon!  Then we are going to visit his fathers grave and remember all the greatness there was to know his Dad.

Ive made two cards this year that I wanted to share.

The first is from the Feeling Sentimental set.  I used an oval framelits with Early Expresso ink.  J went to sign the card and kept telling me it was upside down.

The second card is from the Open Sea set.  I wanted to do a little water coloring so I used Pool Party and stamped with Chocolate Chip.

Two great cards for two great Dads!

Have a Magical Day!

Here I am!!

OMG!  It’s been months since I last posted.  I am SO sorry!!  Trust me I have not been neglecting you.  Sadly we had a bit of family chaos.  J was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in March.  Really throws a curveball at you, but thankfully she is doing fantastic!  She’s inspirational really.

She is lucky enough to have some great friends who support her.

Everyday is a new challenge but we have a positive outlook and J is very strong.  It’s thrown some loops into our Girl Scout Disney trip, but she seems ready for the challenge.

I promise to update you on all the fun things we’ve been doing for Disney as well as prep for MDS Sweet 16 Disney party. So many crafty things to share with you.  I can’t wait!

Have a Magical Day!

Don’t say the “S” word

I can’t believe all the snow that’s been falling the last few weeks.  It’s been relentless.  You’d think with all this snow it’s kept me inside doing crafts, sadly no.  However I have had a chance to sneak down and duplicate a card Dawn Griffith did with Shelly Gardner on her YouTube channel using the Butterfly Basic stamp set. Here’s their card:

Heres mine!

Now im not saying mine is better, but I do love the look of the white embossed on top of the shadowed layers.  Something I’m going to explore.

I hope it inspires you to try embossing, my favorite technique!

I’m off to a Girl Scout Senior conference with MD and scouts for the weekend down at Salve Regina University!  Should be exciting.  Some time out to work on our Harry Potter themed Girl Scout Camporee this summer.  Never a dull moment!

Have a Magical Day!

Tim Holtz February Tag

imageHappy Tim Holtz Tag Day!

Tims tag this month was about inspiration and they things you love.

 

MB and I got together last week and using the new Thift Store Epherma packet we pulled together some things and came up with these two tags.

image

 

MBs tag is to the right and mine is to the left.  I love how the both came out.  Her use of the wood pieces is so great.

I hope Tim likes the, too!

 

Have a Magical Day!

Skyscraper Solo

This year is an extra special year for us; well for MD actually because this year after 13 years,  she will perform her first dance solo!  So proud of her, she’s really worked hard and earned this performance.

So our dance studio had a fundraiser where MD and J performed two separate but amazing dances.  With the power of Project Life I scrapped it already!

Such a a cute picture of the girls, oh and J’s friend!  Actually the hairpiece in the middle right picture, MD and I whipped that together the night before her recital!  Oh and J’s friend?  Yup her boyfriend!

I can’t wait to print this out so I can add the program, tickets, ribbon from the headpiece and add it to our book!

Hope it inspires you!  Have a Magical day!

It’s a Blizzard out there!

No seriously it really is a blizzard, Blizzard Juno actually.  When did we start naming blizzards?  IDK.  Well the Lalas were homebound this week watching the snow totals reach almost 3 feet!

Recently I’ve learned about Project Life, specifically their digital app that has made my life super simple for scrapbooking our life!  I take pictures on my iPad, download them to the app, pull in cards, create my journaling and I’m done!  So easy!

So easy in fact that I’ve already whipped up a page for the storm!  You can see in the middle page a frame by frame of how quickly the snow came down.  Each picture was taken 2 hours apart!  You can see how much snow by the front of my car!

image

Don’t get me wrong, I still need to get my hands on creating.  I plan on obtaining Project Life cards and Design layouts so I can add my special touches to each card.  If you enjoy scrapbooking, take a look at this Project Life app and let me know!

UPDATE – ok I went to Michaels and purchased a Project Life Photo Pocket Pages; Design A and redid my Blizzard page.  Click on it so you can see it closer. What do you think?  Let me know in the comments!
