Disney Minnie Mouse Mini-Album

This is a custom order book I did. I worked on it over about a month slowly.  I cut the pages out of thin chipboard and cardstock. I painted the Thin chipboard with black paint (acid free of course)  I used the cricut to cut them out. I used George, Mickey and Friends, Mickey Font cartridges for the cricut for my cuts.  I used  CTMH papers, except for the black w/polk a dots. I also, added flip flaps to add more pictures. The book measure from the highest point Top to Bottom 7 1/2"  from side to side 7 1/2"  and from the shortest points from top to bottom 6 1/2"  and from side to side 7"

Cricut Imagine

So have you heard about the Cricut Imagine? NO?!  I've been hearing things here and there. I'm not sure what I think completely but am leaning more towards the I do not need this. It is very intresting but just don't think its quite my "cup of tea" or "style" of scrapbooking? I'm sure I'll see some creative stuff made with it and be inspired.

If you haven't heard anything check out this page for simple "facts"
This is a short overview video

This is about a 10 min video covering the whole process

What's your opinion? I'd love to hear it?!

Birthday Cards

I made 3 more cards with the CTMH "Be Yourself" Stamp set! These are so cute! I made them for my neices and i really think the "Fancy Ladies" I chose really "represent" them.

Pink Altered Paint Pail

I altered this Paint Pail that is not quite finished because I have to figure out how I am decorating the handle.  I want to do pony beads but can't bend the end of the handle straight enough to get them on.  I plan to add some things to go inside and then put it up for Auction to raise money for Cancer, just trying to find the right place to "donate" proceeds.

Bow Easy MTC File!


I found the file which is an SVG file from Linda @ Just a Scrappin Blog  who then sent me to Paper This and That blog who had the SVG file for free download! I downloaded and then converted in MTC to MTC File.
 If you don't know how to convert from SVG file, which MTC has made it easy. You can download my file which again is Paper This and That's creation!!!! So please be sure to go to her blog and please thank her for the file! I only made my MTC File available because I personally know of a few people who have a very hard time converting files or are still learning MTC!  So by NO MEANS WHATSOEVER! am I trying to take credit for this Awesome creation! If you have SCAL you can get this file too! You just go to Paper this and That's blog to download!

I cut mine out of recycled plastic. You know the packaging that stamps or cartridges or toys come in. Well, as I've said before any flat plastic pieces I can cut out and save I DO! I used my Cricut Expression with the Deep Blade  and set to multiple cuts 3 times. This is what I know have (I outlined in Green Sharpie so you can see it better since it is clear plastic):

Here is my MTC File that was from Paper This and That's SVG File! if you don't know how to convert from SVG to MTC, otherwise please go to her Blog and download. Even if you download my MTC fileplease stop by her blog and thank her! DOWNLOAD HERE

If you don't have SCAL or MTC or deep blade cut or materials to cut this and would like one for FREE simply place any size order from my CTMH site or  even CTMH Studio J  purchase or purchase anything from my Etsy Store or you can pay for the Shipping & Handling. I do have limited supplies!
