A Little Disney Love and a TON of Family FUN

I just got back from a FUN visit with my Emily and the littles, my name for my grandsons. There are four years between my Em and the three littles, Eli, Zeke, and Toby! They need to create a band -- they already have a great name.

We met this past week at Disney World for a little grandma time and before I left I started my layouts for this adventure.

 I created the little Mickey's using Cricut Design Space with three circles welded together.

This layout will be the home of my favorite photos from the first day.

There were many favorite photos during the trip. Each grandchild has their version of how to pose, from sad or mad I don't want my photo taken (middle little) or scary hands covering our face (littlest little).


 I have so many stories to share about this trip, so a journaling block was a must.

I used the Make It From Your Heart how to book Volume 1, layout recipe number 6 -- love using the Close To My Heart how to books.

The Cricut cartridge Artbooking and the font from the newest Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge Artistry were used for some embellishments.

Stamping and photos will be added soon.

And the January featured paper pack, La Vie En Rose is used with Cranberry, Honey, Black, and White Daisy cardstock. All of the products are available on my website - shop NOW!

I am glad you took time to check out my post, please let me know what you think, I love comments!

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 



The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
