Mindy's food container

I just got a new cartridge Mickey & Friends.  I was dying to make something with it and have been wanting to decorate my dog's food container.  She is a diva and deserves something pretty!!  So this is what I came up with.  I just love the Minnie.  She wasn't as hard as I thought she would be.  Actually I had fun making her. 

All cuts are from Mickey & Friends cartridge
Bone with name is cut twice at 6" wide (one with name cut out)
Minnie cut at 3.5"

Here is a picture of Mindy with her newly decorated container.  She loves it!  She was dancing and hopping around it.  She was all excited.

Pretty Ladies

I made this layout of my Pretty Lady relatives...Grandma, Mom, Great-Aunt, Aunt, and cousins.  I love them so much.  The layout is pretty simple.

Title- Ashlynn's Alphabet @ 1 1/2 "
Scalloped square- Accent Essentials @ 3 1/2"- hid the inner square with my Gypsy--I will be adding white paper with journaling.

Play Games

At my grandma's house the games start about 5:00am.  She has been like that my whole life.  She is getting in bad health and I wanted to capture the memories.

Title- Ashlynn's Alphabet @ 1 1/2" and welding on my Gypsy
Dice- Indie Art @ 1 1/2"

My Heros Have Always Been Cowboys #2

I have already made a double layout using these pictures.  Then decided to make this one to hang in my grandson's room.  His room is decorated in Toy Story so this one matches better.  I had so much fun making this.  It was a lot of work, but well worth it...I think anyway  hehehe  TFL

Toy Story cartridge -Bulls Eye the horse= 4", rope frames=6", and of course Woody=5"
Old West- Title=1" and sign=4 1/2"
I embellished rope and sign by using a cotton ball and brown ink pad to give it texture.
I usually pop dot everything but didn't on this layout since it will be in a frame anyway.
Gold stickles for horse shoe on nose and Woody's spurs
White and blue marker pens for eyes

Hand Over the Toys

I got a new Cricut Cartridge "Toy Story" and had to play with it.  Let me tell you it is a difficult cartridge.  It took me over 4 hours to create Wood and Jessie.  I didn't touch the layout again for about 2 weeks.  I dont know but the second page total time was about 2-2 1/2 hours so it wasn't that bad.  There are a lot of intricate pieces.  I learned for the very small pieces to use markers or pens.  I wanted to try this layout first then I have one I want to make my grandson for his walls using it.  That will be my project for this weekend. 

All cuts using Toy Story
Woody cut at 6"
Jessie cut at 5"
Army man cut at 2"tall x 4.5"wide
Martians cut at 6"wide x 3.16" tall
Buzz cut at 3"
Slinky cut at 4.5"wide x 3.02" tall
Title cut at 4.5"
