Card using MarilynLooWho Digi image

Here is a card using a digi from . I used her MarilynLooWho digi image to create a simple card. Wanted it to be simple so that I can mail it out using 1 stamp. Used my Martha Stewart colored pencils to color her. Then used stickles (glitter) to shine her dress and lips. Added a recollections flower and some K&Company bling I cut up and used around the edges of the flower. Used a bling in the center of the flower.  Use a sentiment "Hello sunshine" from a stamp I had. (dont remember brand) but I got it off

Pinkie Pie Banner

Here is a banner that I made. I used a cut file from . I had sooo much fun making her. I used chalk inks from the 1.50 bin that I bought at Michael's Art's and Craft Store.  Then I used a cut that was free when I got my Silhouette. I inked the edges of the banner with Tim Holtz tea die distress ink. I added stickles to Pinkie Pies name. Used Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge to cut out the letters. I used some bling/resins to add a little something else to the banner. Used mini blings for her Cutie mark since the cut didn't have it. Then used my Martha Stewart colored pencils to add the strings to the balloons. Used 2 colors of tulle to connect the banner and turned them into bows. I love this. I will be doing more projects and cuts with Pinkie Pie.

I hope that you enjoyed my project. I had a lot of fun creating her and this banner. Please feel free to comment and go check out for more cute and fun SVG cuts.

I Finished a 12 x 12!

These photos will show you what layout helpers I used. I did modify them to fit my needs and the way that I saw them.

Here is my finished book. Sorry bad lighting for the cover. I bought this on sale at Michael's Arts and Craft Store on sale plus used my 25% off even sale items. I just added this set of Mickey stickers that I had on hand from MANY MANY years ago. I finally got to use them after hoarding them. 

Here is the first layout for the first page. It came out pretty good. I find it hard to do the first page, but when I saw this layout I knew I wanted to use it.

Here is the 1st 2 page layout. I used my Mickey Font cartridge for the font and the Mickey heads. I did use a whole puncher to punch out the white buttons for the bottom part.

Once I found a layout I liked to fit this many photos (took forever). I just used this one because I loved the way the layout looked on paper and I wanted it for these photos. I didn't know how I would make them fit. I played for a while with them until I got it the way I wanted.

This one is one of my favorites. Don't get me wrong I love them all but this was fun and a pain to do. I didn't have enough photos to use for the layout but I did find a way as you can see. 

This 2 page was a little more difficult because of the image on the papers. I worked around it. My kids were playing on a bounce house so I used it. They were having sooo much fun. Cut out all the circles using Plantin Schoolbook cricut cartridge. Cut them in many different sizes. I even used a hole puncher for the very small ones.

Yummy Treats!!!! Man this was at the end of the day for them. They were tired but wanted ice cream. This layout came out pretty easy and was modified. It was simple but cute.

Last but not least is the "The End" page. I wasn't sure how to end it but had an idea. bu a friend suggest something with "The End"

A Couple Layouts

I DO NOT normally make layouts and when I do they are usually just layouts to not only challenge myself but they are not in a book. I also make layouts to sell but not very often.

Here are a couple layouts that I've done for challenges on a Facebook group page. 

This one I created first using a layout that I had help with from one of the gals on the site. She posted the sheet and I just went with it. I LOVED how it came out. I modified the 2 page layout to meet my needs. It came out awesome I think. The tear bears I bought off an auction group on Facebook. I LOVE THOSE TOO! 

This is the 2nd 2 page layout that we were challenged to do. I just modified it to meet my needs. I made the white sheets into mats so they are bigger than 4 x 6. They are 4.25 x 6.25. This was a kit I bought except I added the red and words (which were not in the kit). It came out pretty nice!

I would like you to challenge yourself to creating something you are not used to making with your crafting.
