Bibbiddi Bobbiddi Blog Hop! Disney Pixar Time Again!

Welcome back Disney fans! I feel so fortunate to be invited back for the fourth time to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop! Thanks, Shawn, for the opportunity to be part of such a talented team of ladies. It's always such a fun weekend looking at everyone's Disney projects.

And speaking of Disney, we cruised on Disney's newest ship, the Fantasy, over New Year's, from Dec. 29 through Jan 5. Great vacation, gorgeous ship, and incredible service -- I highly recommend the Fantasy for a family vacation!

New Year's Eve on the Fantasy was amazing!  It's a special day for my hubby and me anyhow because it's our wedding anniversary, so I chose this as the first layout to make for my newest Disney album.   The night was so much fun, Disney treated us so well, and the party and entertainment was so memorable!  I hope to scrap more Disney cruise layouts in the next few weeks, so please check back. 

 My goal was to use the tiara from the party.  I also wanted to use (part of) one of the top hats Disney provided, but I couldn't come up with a way to bring it into the layout.  I'm anxious to add the photos!  Colors are (Stampin' Up) rose red, real red and black.  I used the Martha Stewart punch to thread the ribbon down each page, and SU black grosgrain.  The words "Cruising" and "New Year" are covered in a healthy layer of Christmas Red stickles.  Cartridges:  Mickey & Friends, Mickey Font, and Martha Stewart Cake Everyday Occasions. 

Thanks for joining us today.  Here's the complete line up in case you missed anything!

I'm doing a random drawing for my personal blog candy offering.  To qualify, simple leave a comment on this post.  Please do so by 10:00 PM Central on Monday night.   Don't forget to check back to see if you're the lucky winner!

Thanks again, Kim

Easter Peeps card

We're just past Christmas, so who can possibly think about Easter yet, right?  Well, I'd like you to think I'm already working on 2013 Easter cards, but that would be false ;)   I made this card last Easter, to be honest! 

Isn't it cute though?  I love the look of the "peeps".  I couldn't find the right bunny to make a peep on any cricut cartridge, but I did find a good bunny head from one cartridge.  So I used just the bunny head and welded it to a circle (Cricut Design Studio), then welded the three "peeps" together.  The bunny head may have been from Stretch Your Imagination, I can't remember as it's been so long ago.
As always, the products are all Stampin' Up, Very Vanilla and Rose Red cardstock, ribbon, and DSP. A little embossing, punching the edges, and sponging, and it's complete!

Hoping this gives someone an inspiration for a fun Easter card this Spring! 

Happy paper crafting . . . hope you get some time to play this weekend!  Kim

Coming Soon: Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Happy New Year everyone! I'm trying to figure out where 2012 went, and we're 1/3 of the way through January 2013 already!

We had a fantastic Christmas, and left for Disney on Dec. 27. We cruised on the new Disney Fantasy for the New Year's Cruise from Dec. 29 - Jan 5. What an amazing ship and and super fun vacation! I wish it didn't have to end :)

Back home now, just in time to put together a layout (or hopefully two) for the upcoming Disney Pixar Blog Hop. I hope you can check out all of the projects on Saturday, January 19 and Sunday, January 20. I am so honored to be part of such a talented group of paper crafters, and so grateful to be invited back to the Disney Pixar Hop for the 5th time! Thanks Shawn and Melissa for having me!

I will post the details when the hop gets closer, but if you want more info now, check out the public facebook page:!/events/135056236643588/

Thanks for stopping in!  I've been horrible about posting projects, so I'm trying to get back in it!
