Happy 5th Birthday Card





Hello! Brenda from Random Thoughts of a Scrapbooker here. I made this birthday card for my grandson’s friend’s 5th birthday.

This is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card. The base is Recollections cardstock. The patterned cardstock is 5 1/4 x 4, and is from the Simple Stories SN@P! Color Vibe paper pad. I used the Create A Critter 2 Cricut cartridge to cut the lion (on page 78 of the handbook) at 3 1/4″, which is on page 78. All the solid cardstock is Recollections, and the hat was also cut from the Simple Stories SN@P! Color Vibe paper pad. I stamped the Happy Birthday banner using the Stampin’ Up! Bitty Banners stamp set and cut it out using the coordinating die. The number 5 was stamped using Close To My Heart’s Hopscotch Alphabet stamp set (item # E1028). The inside white layer measures 4 1/2 x 3 1/4″ and is Recollections cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using the Close To My Heart retired stamp set called Card Chatter – Birthday. I used Close To My Heart’s Archival Black Ink stamp pad for my stamping.

I used my Gypsy to cut the lion, and here is a picture of the screen:

Donald Duck Pop Up Card

Pop up cards are a new fad in the crafting world.  One of our Cricut Divas recently made one for her daughter’s birthday.

Shawn used both the Mickey and Friends cartridge and the Doodlecharm cartridge (for the balloons) to create this cute little card that is full of Disney fun.  To see the full project tutorial, click HERE.

Disney Cork Project

There is one of our Diva’s that is a HUGE Disney fan.  Shawn Mosch organizes a Disney Pixar Blog Hop where several crafting bloggers all post Disney or Pixar inspired projects on the same day.  For Shawn’s most recent Disney Pixar Blog Hop post she created a cork Mickey Mouse framed in rhinestones.

She used the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge for this project.  To check out the FULL project tutorial, head over to Shawn’s blog by clicking HERE.
