Green Easter Eggs & Ham!

Hello everyone! Well it's School Holidays here in Australia! I just love the school holidays, not sure if it is the late nights, no lunches, no school uniforms, no school shoes or all of the above! Dont get me wrong, when school is in, I am a mega routine Mum! Bedtimes, lunch packed the night before, teeth brushed. But that is why I love the school holidays so much, it gives us a break from the normality of everyday life. That and I get to spend time with my special little guy.
I took Dylan to see HOP last week. What a great movie! I laughed so much. And it really got me in the mood for Easter (and chocolate... not that I needed an excuse for that!) I even went out after the movie and did all my Easter shopping which I had been slightly avoiding!

We went to the Drive In last night to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2. That was a good movie also. My son loved the drive in. It was his first time!

On Saturday night, I was feeling creative and decided to take the time and effort required to do a Toy Story card. Now for those of you who love and use Disney cartridges, you will understand the patience needed for such a project! But I was dedicated to seeing this project out and here is the result...

I Love it! The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper and says "Hogs & Kisses"! The background paper is from the DCWV Animal Crackers Stack. I cut Ham at 4 inches, which worked well. This card was cut and created within 45 mins and no, not because I am a master cricutter but because this cut is suprisingly easy (for a disney cut).

I also recieved my Pink By Design- Animated Greetings Stamps and pink stamp block. They are adorable. I had my hubby order the "Best of Pixar" Cartridge for me for mothers day just so I could use these stamps! Thanks Sarah!

Happy Scrapping!

Latest Projects

Hi eveyone! I haven't had alot of free time lately, which means there hasn't been alot of scrapbooking or crafting getting done at my house. I did manage to get a few projects done and also a tiny haul to share...

(Sorry about the video getting cut off on the sides, I recorded it the wrong way)
Here is a few pictures of the accordian folder I made. I must stress that I did not come up with this idea, and have just recreated it. These are really easy and make cute presents. And best of all they are quick to make. If you find the "My Pink Stamper" button on the right hand side of my blog, Robyn has an easy to follow tutorial on her site. If you get stuck finding the video, let me know and I will post a link.

Here is the mask I created using the Doodlecharms carridge. I used the "Fit to page" button on a 12x12 mat...

Thanks for stopping by!
