Okay so I would love your thoughts on this!!!

Yes, this is coming a bit late in the day but I unfortunately am suffering from a very yucky sinus cold :-( and it took me a long time to get it done and then finally up on the blog.

I have shared with ya’ll that I am trying to get my Disney pictures scrapped from our vacation 2 years ago!!! ( I know that is pretty sad isn’t it) But hey praise the Lord for Photo Cd’s that last for-e-ver. ( have you ever seen the sandlot!! With the guy that says forever really slow, it’s a hoot) Anyway….I am trying to work diligently on this album so today I worked on one of the pages that have to do with having dinner with the Princesses at Epcot. I learned a new technique for paper flowers using my Plantin Schoolbook Cart for this page. And I must say….. that I so totally love it!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes I think that ya’ll must think I am a cross between a valley girl and a southern gal!! With all of my so’s you all’s and ya’lls. To tell you the truth I am originally from Upstate NY but Florida is officially my home of choice and I hope to get back there soon.

Ok Ok enough jibber jabber. What I need you all for is to help me decide if I should scrap this or frame it. I like it so much I am not sure what I want to do. Here is the layout:IMG_3421

I have to tell you that I am still wondering how I did it. All I can say is Thank you so much to all of the bloggers out there who give great tutorials. I found the tutorial for the rose on one of the blogs (due to my Nyquil induced coma I am not thinking clearly) I tried it out and wa-lah it worked!!! Here is a close-up and then I will give you the details.


This was so easy to make and literally took like 5 min. It was made from the flower image on my Plantin Schoolbook cart. It is near the end of the handbook and on the bottom row of the keyboard.

So I used the Storybook Cartridge for the rest of this layout. I love this cartridge and I know that many of you have had it for a long time but I just got this cart back in March and I am still pretty new to it. For the trellis or vines that my little flowers are on I used the branch border on page 38 of the handbook


Then I added some small pink and cream flowers from Got Flowers. I used some glitter glue to add alittle something to my cream colored flowers.


Next I added a cute title from Storybook it’s the Once upon a time title from pg 68 and I also used the accent blackout on pg 68 to give my title a mat.


Then I put four corners from the storybook cartridge on the page. They were on pg 47 of the handbook. Lastly I added little rhinestones on each flower in the corners.

Please let me know if you would like the full tutorial on the flower. Thanks everyone!!!

So tell me should I Scrap it (put it in an album) or Frame it???

  10. Beautiful layout! i would frame it! I also would love to see the flower tutorial, its gorgeous!

  11. Anything that lovely should be shown...frame it!! You did a wonderful job! The rose is beautiful!

  12. Love the flower, beautiful job! Thank-you for joining the RAK group if you could add me as a friend on Facebook ( Deborah Jennings Foti) I can add you to the rak group..
    Thanks have a lovely day!

  13. Love it! Definitely frame it!

  14. btw Yes a tutorial on the flower is quite necessary

  15. Put it in a protector with cardboard behind it and use an easel to display it! That way you can change the picture easily whenever you come up with the next gotta frame layout.

  16. Such a great LO! Frame it for a while and then change it w/another one of your masterpieces!

  17. I say frame this gorgeous creation! But, use a shadow box frame, and leave the back so that you can remove it when you are ready to put another art piece in it, Then you can scrap this one.

  18. Absolutely beautiful frame.


  19. NO Question --FRAME IT--
    Great job and I would love to see a tutorial on the rose.

  20. cute! Definitely frame it! I have an award for you...visit my blog to check out the details:


  21. bee-utiful, definitely worthy of being framed

  22. Frame it! It's a work of art! I love the rose!

  23. I have been scrapbooking for a few years now and today I bought a cricut. I searched online for blogs to get some ideas. I was literally amazed when I came across your page. This scrapbook page is absolutely beautiful. My suggestion is to frame it for everyone to see. Your daughter is so lucky to have a crafty mom like you :-)

So have fun and don’t forget the Blog Candy!!! If you have come from Melanie’s blog. You are in the right place. If you are just visiting my Blog and want to play along, you can do so by starting at Sylvia's blog ( are the Disney Projects that I made for the hop!!This was a quick and simple card that I made using one of the Minnie cuts on the Mickey and Friends Cart. I also added a border with my Martha Stewart double edge punch. The sentiment came from a one dollar stamp at Michaels. I wanted to share one other project…Here is a Layout that I made using both my Mickey and friends Cart and my MTC software. It was super easy!!!So I would like to offer some blog candy but at this time I just didn’t have anything available. Then I got to thinking and he…

using Silhouette Studio files with Ecal and MTC

Good Evening, I planned on posting this a little earlier but my day got away from me. That doesn't happen to anyone else does it? lol! Anyway I have a quick post today with a video tutorial.

I absolutely LOVE the Silhouette Online Store. It is awesome and the files that are on there are awesome too! Well I no longer have the Cameo because in the my last post you were able to see that I decided to keep the Sizzix Eclips 2. Well I had already subscribed to the silhouette store and had purchased several files. So I knew I needed to figure out a way to use them.

I had actually seen a post on a forum describing what to do. I went ahead and tried it but had to tweak a few things to get mine to work. Here is a video that shows you how to use those files so you don't feel like you wasted your money.

Have a great night everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog!!


Disney Layouts using SVG’s

Good Morning!! I wanted to share some layouts with you today that I made for my Disney Album. These layouts I did not cut from cartridges but from SVG files. They were a lot of fun and I love how they turned out. I am just going to post them and then I have to paint my porch today so I cannot spend to much time in the blogging world the paint is calling my name So here they are I hope they bring inspiration so some of you!!Here is a double page layout I made from svg files. The Lilo and Stitch font I traced from an image on Google then the surf board I traced also from Google images it was a coloring page image.  The flower and leaves were an svg I hadThis next layout is of my son Matthew he was blessed enough at Disney’s Hollywood Studio to be chosen as a Jedi Trainee for the Jedi Training school. He was so excited. We video recorded it and the video is hilarious because when they pick the kids you can cheer for yours to cause attention to be drawn and then they may pick your child. …
