Disney Pixar Blog hop!

I was so excited to be included in the Disney/Pixar blog hop!  This is one of my absolute fav blog hops as it always features such an amazing group of ladies!  And who doesn't love Disney and Pixar??  If you have come from Lori at Scrappin My Stress Away then you are in the right place!  If you just happened by my blog today and want to start at the beginning, head on over to Shawn's Crafty Chics.   There is a chance to win a ScrapN Easel-Ette!!   In case you get lost somewhere on the hop, the entire list is at the bottom of this post.

Now how about a cute project?  My daughter was in LOVE with Mickey Mouse when the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse first came out!  She would hear the song come on the TV and run into the room to watch!  So I thought it would be fun to document that!
You may notice I am using my Silhouette Cameo for this project, and you may think to yourself, but there is no Mickey in the downloads!??!!  Well that is ok!  I found some Mickey Mouse ears, opened them in Silhoutte Studio and then traced them!  I used the Chomas Creations engraving tip in the Silhouette Cameo to etch the Mickey ears as my background on Core'dinations Black Magic cardstock (the color on the back was white) to get this look.  I used my pressure on 33, speed on 8 and double cut.

I used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with a Paper Mate Flair (like a felt tip pen) to do the journaling on this page using some of the Lettering Delights new thin fonts.  I used my speed on 6 and my pressure on 6.

The title was done with a Minnie font I downloaded from dafont.

Here is my page all put together with my Mickey loving princess!  I also cut out the Mickey ears and layered them on the page and added ribbon.

So how about your chance to win one of the Chomas Creations adjustable holders?  Leave a comment on what you would try with either the Chomas Creations adjustable holders for the Silhouette Cameo or Cricut!  You don't have to be a follower of this blog, but why not?  One chance per person please.  I need a way to contact you!  I'll draw a winner around Wednesday.

Like what you see and want to give it a try?  Use the coupon code disney10 at checkout in the Chomas Creations store to save 10% off your entire purchase! Coupon good till 5-23.

Your next stop on the hop is Kathy at Kathys Cozies!

I LOVE that you can basically make your own background paper with your tools! That allows people to be so much more creative.

I love that Piglet and Pooh card that you posted yesterday! Since my girls will be having a birthday party with Pooh as the theme I will definitely have to try that. Your projects are great and I love the backgrounds on your LOs.

Beautiful job on your layout! I am new to the Cameo cutting and still trying to figure it all out. If I had these holders I think journaling would be great but so hard to choose because the pictures and ... everyting done with the pens has been great.

I would love one of the adjustable holders for my Cricut but I only have an original baby and an E. Guess I could have my husband cut off a stylus to fit.
I'd love to give a try at making backgrounds.
Thanks for sharing.

I love how you captured this memory


Pam In Colorado said...

I love your layout!! I am very new to the Cameo, having had it less than a month, but I am learning fast what all this fantastic machine can do. I have been checking out all your products and wishing hard, but have to do some saving first, so thank you so much for a chance to win this. Hugs, Pam

Rosie said...

Such a creative way to make your own background paper! I would LOVE to be able to try that!

I've been a Cricut-owner for some time now, but just got my Cameo and can't wait to try the sketch and engraving features! Thank you for the chance to win!!

I always love seeing what you create with your pens and engraving tools!!! Love the idea of engraving the colored cardstock with a white core!!! I love my Chomas pens and pen holder, but now I am thinking of everything I can do with the engraver.....

Ellen Jarvis said...

ENGRAVER???! Oh my, what a great idea -- and I had no idea I could do that with my (new) Cameo. I'm going to have to look into your products more. I have one of your pen holders and pen sets for my Cricut, but I don't think they're the same as for the Cameo, correct? Will definitely spend more time looking -- your layout is simply stunning!! thank you for sharing this technique with us. I so enjoy the cutting features of both my Cameo and Cricut, that I usually forget that I can draw too. GREAT ... and thank you for joining us on this hop!!

I don't do much journaling on my LO because I hate my handwriting so much. It never occurred to me to do this. What a great idea and wonderful results.

I stumbled upon this wonderful Disney Pixar Blog Hop while searching for some great deals, and I must say, it's been an absolute delight exploring the creativity and passion that bloggers like you bring to the online world!

Speaking of great deals, I recently discovered a fantasti Discount Code that I think many readers here might find valuable. frugalishness is known for its high-quality activewear, and getting a discount on their products can be a real treat, especially when celebrating a birthday.
