Happy Saturday with an exploding box!!

Hi everyone!! Well I am back this past week was wonderful! We had a great time in Webb Alabama seeing one of our favorite speakers!! If you have followed me for any length of time you know that my husband and I have been trying to conceive and God really spoke to us this past week and we are excited about the future. We believe that God is getting ready to bless us with a little one!! I will keep you posted on that!!
Now onto the last post. I had put up a blog p
oll for the E2 and the winning thing was question and answer but then I only got one question and here it is......

I just tried to cut a card from gypsy to E2 and it would not weld. Is it
possible to weld from gypsy to E2?


Dian Dabek

Dian, I personally do not have a gypsy so I am not the expert on this question for the E2 however I searched around for you and found if you go over to Creations by Christina that she has a video series on connecting the gypsy to the E2!! Thanks Christina and Thanks Dian for your question!.
Lastly I wanted to share with you all my first exploding box!! This was lots of fun to make and really pretty easy. I created this for a few design team calls and I am really hoping to get chosen for the teams!! I will let you know next week about one of them at least. I have not done any design teams yet but would really like too!!!

I am new to stamping but I have to say that I am absolutely loving it!! Normally I would use a die cut phrase for my sentiment but I am finding that Stamping Sentiments is so much fun and very versatile and I have to tell you quicker and easier!! I am excited for the world of stamping and h
ow it will add to my projects!!
So this is just a cheap stamp set from Walmart that I had in my drawer and I really liked what it said and thought it would go perfect with this project!!

I had so much fun making this!! I used a compilation of Worldwin papers along with colorbok papers. Plus I used my cricut with the CTMH Art philosophy cartridge for the flower on the inside of the box. Being that it is Saturday my time is cut short today but next week I will have a tutorial up for this box. So come back and check it out!!
I will let you all know if I get chosen for a design team!!!

Thanks again and Happy Saturday!!!!

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 ( 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

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. …
