Paper Playtime~~Queen Blog Hop!

Hello all!!! Welcome to our very first hop!!! 

If you came from Melissa, you are on the right track!! If not, make sure you go to Paper Playtime to start!!! You don't want to miss all the fun and all the CANDY!!!

Today, I have for you something that is soo fun to play with!!! I finally bought some Shrinky Dinks and created a couple of charm bracelets that would be perfect for stocking stuffers!!! 

Now, keep in mind that this is the VERY first time I play with these!!! Also, it's the VERY first time I create charm bracelets!!! But, I know my mamma will be so happy!!

This first bracelet I created using Market Street BFFs Stamps! Now, do not look closely at the coloring!!! I need  A LOT of practice!!!

I also bought Shrinky Dinks for pictures and created a charm bracelet for my mom of her four kids!!! 

When using Shrinky Dinks for pictures you have to play with the transparency... since I could NOT figure that out, I just went lighter on the pictures. Still need practice on this too!

I love how they came out... remember everything we do is a learning experience and I will definitely be creating more of these!!!

Now onto your next blog!!!

Oh wait!!! What is a hop with out CANDY!!! 
Leave a comment on my blog and I will send the first bracelet to a lucky person!!!

Disney Mini-Album for Sweet Sassy Diva

Si estan aqui para el Blog Hop De Navidad de Artes Laura haz click AQUI!

Hello my dear followers and viewers!! Today I have for you a Bind-It All mini-album! I love to do these but never find enough time to really sit down and work on them! I actually have four started!!!!

I did this mini from my husband's first time to Disney after almost 15 years!!! 

Material used:
Disney paper Pack from Joanns
Bind-It All
Disney Sticker variety
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut

I bought the chipboard in 12 x 12 and cut it in 4s and rounded edges. This makes it a lot easier to cut all the paper and make it a little faster to work with. I love how all the shaped albums look, but just looking at all the different shapes out there...... ugh.... I am not too good with the Xacto knife.

Thanks for visiting!!!

Blog Hop de Navidad en Artes Laura!

To all my English speaking followers and viewers, today I am doing a bilingual post! I hope you learn some new words (I promise no bad ones! hehehe). 

¡Hola a todos! Es la primera vez que hago un post en dos idiomas. Estoy emocionada de estar participando. Si llegaste aqui de ROXY andas por buen camino, pero si llegaste a mi blog por casualidad, entonces te recomiendo que comienzes con CAROLYN. Y si llegaste aqui es porque ya tienes mucho rato sentada y de seguro estás llena de cafeína por tanto café y se te están entumiendo las..... piernas!!! Espero que hayas encontrado mucha inspiración para estas navidades. 

Hello all! This is the first time I am doing a bilingual post. I am very excited to be participating in this hop. If you came from ROXY then, you are on the right track, but if you happen to come here first then i recommend you start with CAROLYN. And, if you have arrived here, then you have been sitting for a while and are probably full of caffeine because of all the coffee and your..... legs are feeling numb!! I hope you have found lots of Christmas inspiration.

Let's just say he got a really bad tan!! Like Ross!! Aww man, now you know I am a Friends addict!!!!! 

Here are the materials I used: 

Post-It Craft Paper (used on Santa)
Core'Dinations cardstock
K & Company Christmas Paper
Just Because Cricut cart 
My Scrap Chick Santa
