Getting our Mickey Ears on

With a Disney trip less than 60 days away that means the Lalas get their DIY going!  Since our trip will be during the Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween party we knew we had to come up with some fun Mickey ears.

We found an ears template on Pinterest that uses think foam sheets and poly fiber to make the ears.  Then you cover it with character created with fabric.

Thats right – SEWING!  Hand and machine sewing.  Here’s a few that we’ve finished so far.  Here’s Mad Hatter, Jack Skellington, Pluto and Beauty & the Beast.

MD is working on Jasmine and I think Pluto is getting a touch up.  Love the details.  We made the teapot button by printing off a template, coloring them and then covering them in Crystal Effects.  The spider web on Jack was highlighted with white glitter glue.  MD had sewed each of the outfits on B&B!

the excitement is brewing!

Have a Magical Day!

Special Happy Birthday

J has a birthday party tomorrow and asked me to make a card for her friend who’s also one of my scouts in my Girl Scouts going to Disney in October.

I went to Pinterest to find a card that was a fun sketch.  Here it is:

I know it’s got some Mickey in it, but I love this card.  It’s a little busy, but this scout loves to make cakes (I see a bakery or natural skin care business in her future!) so I know she’s going to love all the cakes.

Have a Magical Day!

It’s a Girl!

My boss just had his first baby girl Addy Kate is her name.  She is the last of five children, the first girl in his crew and she is adorable.

Of course I had to make a card for him, proud Daddy!

This is card is adorable.  It uses the Tree Builder punch in such a cute way; as the cloud carrying the baby.  Makes me think of the ‘Beware of Mr Stork’ song from Dumbo!

I Cased this card off of Pinterest here – she made it for a boy, but switching it to pink from my stash and ta-da its a girl. http://www.stampstodiefor.com/patstamps/2015/06/tree-builder-punch-new-by-stampin-up.html.

Love it!  Hope it gives you ideas!  Have a Magical day!

Dancing Queens

May is all about Dance!!  Both girls are in tons of dance classes and Im the Stage Manager (no surprise)  so the recital is a big to do for us.  This year MD had her first Solo!  Her song was Kelly Clarkson’s Breakaway. Great song for her to show her independence.

So the pictures I have aren’t the best, but here she is.

20150509_18332720150509_183339Not the best pictures, but she really was great.

What was really amazing for us was that MD won a scholarship for the dance studio!  Now all the ballet classes the girls take this year are free!  HMMM Maybe I’ll take on a tap class…..

Have a Magical Day!

Happy Birthday!

It always seems in the summer time there are more and more birthday.

This July I was determined to send out birthday cards to all of my friends celebrating, so I needed a quick and easy card, but something fun too!

I was lucky enough to find Lawn Fawn Starry Backdrops at a huge discount and I knew right away what I would do with this beautiful stars!

So I grabbed a bunch of ink pads and embossing powder and came up with this!

image image

 

OK to be honest, I saw it on Pinterest, but I loved the Happy colors.  So I heat embossed the stars in clear embossing and then using a sponge dauber I inked up the colors in a rainbow pattern.  I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Wild Washibi, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder.

The biggest challenge for me on this card was between the white space on the far right side (cuz I wanted that rainbow to go all the way across) and getting the sentiment to line up perfectly!  Such a great quick card, I actually made about 10 of them!

Hope it brightens your day!  Have a Magical day!

Happy Anniversary!

During the summer months there always seems to be a need for anniversary cards.  I wanted to make a card that I could mass produce with multiple colors.  I found this format on Pinterest and using Crumb Cake here it is.

image

I cut the hearts out using Plantain Schoolhouse Cricut cartridge at size 1 1/2″ and then dry embossed one using the Sizzix Polka Dot folder.  I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake and then using the White Craft ink sponged the polka dot heart to make it stand out.  The sentiment is from the Petit Pairs set. Such a cute card.  I can see it made in so many different colors.

Have a Magical Day!

Home sweet home

Theres nothing like purchasing a summer home especially one right on the beach!  My friend just bought a new summer home and of course she needed a New Home card.  Here’s what I came up with.

image

Using the Holiday Home stamp set I stamped in StazOn and water colored the background to make it look like the beach using Crumb Cake, Island Indigo and Pool Party.  I dry embossed a piece of velum using a Sizzix wave folder.  I watercolored the house to make it look exactly like her new house and then added a Baker’s twine bow. The sentiment is from the retired Perfectly Penned set.  I made my dragon tail ends by using my What’s Up arrow punch to make the perfect ends!

I love how it came out.  We actually went to her house one day and the girls had so much fun at the beack.

Spread happiness!  Have a Magical Day!
