Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Disney and crafting are a magical combination, and we are so happy you joined us to day for this blog hop.  Some of the crafters participating in this event have been doing this together since 2011!  Over the years the hop has grown but one thing has always stayed the same . . . amazing crafting projects that feature your favorite characters from Disney and Pixar movies.

For 2016 we are going to attempt to have a hop every other month for the entire year . . . February, April, June, August, October and December.  If you are on Facebook you can like the group page so that you can be the first to learn about each upcoming event.  Just click HERE to go the the Facebook page.

To make sure you don't miss any of the fun, be sure to start at Shawn's blog to see all of the projects.  Just click HERE to head over to her blog and then follow the hop line up at the bottom of the post to see everyone's projects.

For my hop project, I wanted to share these cards I created.  Not too long ago, my mom went to visit family in Guatemala.  They LOVE anything Disney, so she asked me to create some cards for her to take with her and give to them.  Let's take a look!

*I chose a few different cuts from the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge, and created a couple of cards each with them.
*Just changing the background, or orientation of a card can make such a big difference!

I hope you enjoyed my projects!  Before you go, make sure to enter to win our prize for this hop . . . a Disney paper pack from Queen & Co. 

The paper stack will not even be shipping out to stores until late February 2016, so you can have it before the stores are even selling it!  Note: Due to the fact that we received this paper stack so early, it is considered a promotional proof and there could be some slight variations from what will be shipped to stores.

Good luck, and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Between the Folds Challenge - Charlotte

Hi Everybody!
Omg, I have exciting news!!  I am a new design team member for the Between the Folds challenge blog, whooo hoooo!


I was excited to join this team, because the challenges are using Close To My Heart goodies!!  Make sure to check out the new challenge every other week, and get inspired to use your CTMH products :)  And now, onto this weeks challenge.....

This week's challenge at Between the Folds Bi-Weekly Challenge Blog is Close To My Heart's Charlotte Paper Packet.  Don't have this gorgeous paper yet??  No problem, you can use the following color scheme from the paper packet which are Close To My Heart colors: Black, Champagne, Slate, Sorbet, Whisper and White Daisy. 

I needed to create a project for my daughters teacher for Valentine's Day, and the Charlotte Paper pack was perfect!

Here are the details for my challenge project:

*After I cut this cute little peek-a-boo box out, I adhered some plastic over the window.
*Then I added the zip strip (that extra piece on the ends of your 12" x 12" paper) as a fun border.

*I couldn't quite capture how gorgeous the gold foiling looks on this embellishment, but it's WOW!

*These little hearts were perfect :)
I hope you enjoyed my project!  We would love to see your interpretation of this challenge, so please play along with us. All submissions must have some Close To My Heart product on it and if the CTMH product you used isn't obvious, please let us know what you used. You have until Monday, February 15, 2016 at 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time to participate in this challenge.
