I am officially back with a cool Diaper Cake!!!

Happy return to reality day!!!! So my kids are officially back into the swing of things!!! Like homeschool and chores and getting up at 7:30 am and starting the day!! I personally think I am having more trouble than they are! LOL!!! I am bound and determined to start working out again this week. I will let you know how that goes!!
I know that I have been absent this summer but I did want to share with you all this really cool project that I was asked to do this summer for one of the ladies at church that were having a baby!!! Check it out.....


This has had to have been the coolest thing I have ever created!!! I cannot even believe that I made this!!! It was so much fun and I must say that I really learned about how the smallest little detail can really make a difference!!! Let me show you what I mean....

This is the cute little Monkey family that I put on the top of the cake theme for the shower was jungle animals especially monkeys so I thought this family was perfect for it. I used the Create-a-Critter cricut cartridge which I happen to think is one of the best ones out there. If you are new to the cricut and do not own this cart I encourage you to get it!! I actually won mine off of ebay for only $18.00 dollars!!! It was brand new of course it was also 3 O' clock in the morning but I was desperate. LOl!
Anyway I used the Michaels flocking powder for my monkeys so they were all fuzzy. It made them somewhat more realistic and then I wanted there to be a distinction between the mommy and daddy monkey so I had to add some bling to momma....
Don't you just love those earrings. And check out the rock on her finger!! LOL!! These were just little rhinestones that I bought from Micheals.
This project was so much fun. Here are some more photos of the details. Check out the Lions mane it is glitterfied!!!There was more but I couldn't blog forever. I hope you like it as much as I did. If you want more info on it just message me and I can give you the info!!

DISNEY’S BLOG HOP TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Saturday!!! And this is going to be a fun day!! Today is the Disney Blog Hop! There is 20 very talented ladies ready to show you some awesome projects that of course are Disney themed!! 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 (www.bellascrapbookdesigns.blogspot.com)Here 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. …
