We will be taking my niece to Disney for her 5th birthday. It will be a surprise, and I was trying to devise a way to give her a gift to open. I was able to use two Cricut cartridges to create this large card with the big reveal. The cartridges used are Dreams Come True and Mickey & Friends.

I used the line "Be Our Guest" from Beauty and the Beast on the front of the card along with an image of the two characters.

This part took me a long time to put together. I have never used such an intricate cut from the Cricut before, so it took quite a while to assemble.

The inside cover provides more hints as to where our destination might be....

Fortunately, these were much easier to assemble. 

I have also booked breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table on one of our days at Disney. I read online about someone who gave a child an invitation as if it were from Cinderella. Of course, I had to do the same. I kept it really simple and used some stickers I had on hand. 

I plan on printing the inside of the card inviting my niece to the castle for breakfast. Not sure who will be more excited about this portion of the trip!

Spring Cleaning

Spring Break has been really low key this year. There has been no where to go and no real schedule which has been quite enjoyable. I did take some time to do some spring cleaning of my scrap room. These cards are all made using scraps from the scrap drawer and the abundance of stickers I own. Didn't use my Cricut at all for any of these cards. 

The stickers are all from the same set, and I had some great paper to compliment them.

Absolutely love these. Had some great matching paper and they are all color coordinated. It was as if I purchased the paper and stickers at the same time (I am never that organized, btw). The first is a birthday card for someone, and I think I will bundle the others as a gift. 

I make very few cards for men, so this one is super simple. The sentiment is created with Scrabble sticker block letters. 

This card is for my mom who is a huge bird lover. She lost one of her birds two weeks ago, and her other bird is having some health issues. Both birds were/are over 15 years old, so they are very much part of the family. 

Back to work tomorrow, but I am hoping to carve out lots of card-making time over the next couple of weeks as it is National Card and Letter Writing Month!

The Bunny Hop

Wow! I have not posted a card since December, so that means I have not made a card since, you guessed it, December. No wonder I am so stressed. Well, starting to feel better already as I made Easter cards for my beautiful nieces.

I used Create a Critter to create this bunny card. I rarely make shape cards, but I always love them when I do.

Happy Easter!
