Now on with the hop!

You should have arrived here from Haidee~

Let me now share my project. I love altering objects so I decided to decorate a wooden sleigh by Art Minds. Last year during the holiday season I picked it up with the intention of decorating it. Well you know how the holidays go and time waits for no one. That is one of the reasons I decided to participate in this hop!! This year I am a few steps ahead of the game.

First I painted the sleigh with chalkboard paint. After it dried I cut out the saying with oracal 631 vinyl using my silhouette cameo machine. The saying came from the silhouette store. Once the saying was cut, I removed the negative parts. Then I used clear contact paper to transfer the saying onto the sleigh. This process is very easy but can be tricky. Patience is a must!!! Once the image was transferred, I added some embellishments, sealant and it is all done. Ready to be placed anywhere in the home or given away as a present. If anyone in your family or even you are a Georgia Bulldog fan or just a fan of black, red and white, then this is the perfect present!!

Your next stop is Alicia~

Disney Attire 2014

Long time no post do accept my apologies. Sometimes life just gets in the way of all the fun I would like to have. Anyway, here are some things that I have been working on in preparation for our next Disney Vacation. This time we are trying our luck on the high seas onboard the Disney Wonder. The kids are extremely excited and the countdown began over 160 days ago. My husband surprised me with the new Cricut Explore machine and it has awakened my love for crafting again. The software is completely user friendly and I am delighted to say that I am once again staying up into the wee hours of the morning crafting away. Yet its so quiet, that I am not disturbing anyone *smile*.

Take a look at my creations and do leave a comment letting me know you stopped by.

Have a wonderful Saturday and weekend!


Everything was cut using the new Cricut Explore machine, Design Space software, Disney Licensed Images and Heat Transfer Vinyl.

Thanks for looking, Enjoy.

#1Coach Tumbler & Thank You Card

Hello Everyone,

Today I wanted to share with you all a card and tumbler I decorated for my son's baseball coach. My son had the opportunity to play travel ball over the summer with an amazing group of kids an awesome head coach. Today is our end of the season party at an indoor go kart racing facility. My son is super excited and can't wait to go and have fun with his teammates. To show my appreciation for all of the hard work the coach did working with the kids this summer I decided to make him a card, tumbler and give him a gift card to "Academy Sports". Take a look at the card and tumbler,

For the card I printed the paper using my cricut imagine and the snapshot everyday imagine patterns cartridge, the card base came from the CTMH~AP cartridge,"#1" came from Graphically speaking cartridge, "Coach" came from the Soccer solutions cartridge and the "Baseball player" came from the Sports Mania cartridge. The "Thanks" stamp is CTMH~A1125 stamp set and the ink pad is CTMH Black~Z2105.

For questions on any of the CTMH products used or to place an order please visit my online store at

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
