Summer Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to the summer Hallows Eve Blog Hop!!

If you are stopping by to show some love and just saw this hop, head on over to Abby's  blog to start the hop, it's spooktacular! If you came here from Sandra's blog you ended on the right spot. There is a lot of scary cute creations to get your halloween rush going... I know it's still summer but its never too early for HALLOWEEN!

For my project I created a card using the Haunted Hemlock Cards from SVG Cuts :

For this cards I used the RAVENHEAD MANOR collection from recollections. I really liked the textures and colors on that set. The best part of this wonderful card is that Mary from SVGCuts  gives you all the cuts you need to make it. All you need to do is choose some pretty paper and VOILA you got yourself some darling cards.

As a matter of fact they are soo easy to put together that my nieces saw me working on this card and they wanted to jump right in. Since I had my cricut out and all the cuts already laid out I cut some extra pieces so they each could make their own version and this is what they came up with:

They are only 8, 10 and 11 years old so that is why all of the glitter! LOL But I think they did a great job and their mom will be totally thrilled that I have now created 3 little more papercrafters ha ha

Thanks for stopping by the blog hop... but wait don't leave without showing some love! I will be giving away the Haunted Hemlock Cards to one lucky reader, so leave a message and on Monday I will choose a winner.

Make sure to stop by and leave comments to all the participants as there are more gifts up for grabs.
Here is the full line up of participants in case you get lost along the way:

Purple Chilli Peppers... and a card to match

Those of you that know me, know that I am a fan of all things PURPLE.. I loooove purple specially the darker tones. One of my co-workers just bought me a purple pepper plant... (now say that 5 times!). They are this beautiful eggplant purple that is just soo cute. And since I had just happened to finish a purple card I used them as my back drop for it. Had you ever seen such a thing? I am going to try and make some pretty purple salsa and try out the heat on these babies.

Aren't they gorgeous!

Celebremos! A Bday Card for my Tio

I finally broke out my SEW EASY pack that I bought a few months ago. I got a really good deal on a set that included the piercer, 6 piercing heads with different designs and 4 packages of different colored floss. It was a great deal, but I was a little intimidated by it. You see I am not very good a sewing - not very good is an understatement - so I was afraid my attempt to make something with a needle and thread would result in some kinda injury to me LOL But this little tool is AWESOME I started with the most complicated of all patternds, followed the instructions and I think I did a GREAT job if I do say so myself, not too shaby for my first time sewing on paper.... well pretty much sewing anything for that matter ha ha

I am not sure what the pattern is called, but its very cute and I used a glimmery blue floss that came with the set. This card is for my uncle who comes every year from Mexico to visit and we always have a great time hanging out with his family they are so welcoming and they have such GREAT food.

So here is my card and my masterpiece. I again used the freebie printable from Mouse, Paper, Lovely and the die cut is from one of my swaps that I did so I am not sure what cartridge is from.. but I am sure is from a cartridge and not an SVG. The sentiment is from MyPinkstampters Spanish set (love it!). The little charm is also from a swap I was in. Seeee how good I am  trying to use all my stash ..... ha ha  Enjoy!

~~~~ * That's Hot Blog Hop * ~~~~

It's getting hot in here.... so let's blog hop and enjoy the steamming HOT projects all the ladies in this wonderful hop have made for your viewing pleasure. If you are stopping by my blog because you love me and just stopped by.... well head on over to YOLIE's page and start at the beginning. If you are here from Yolie's page you are on the right Track.

For my project I made a LO using SVGcuts recent Tropical Treasures release. You can scroll down this post and see a prior post with a picture of all the cute little creatures in this collection. For the LO I used Imaginiscense SPLASH DANCE COLLECTION and AC cardstock for the solid colors.  All Die cuts are from SVGcuts except for the title which was a freebie I found from Annel's Blog .

This LO is a gift I did for my friend Teresa who I have recently found. We used to be neighbors years ago and we lost touch. Thanks to the internet (and some major stalking) I was able to find her and we re-united last October at her home in UT. We were supposed to go to Hawaii together but my family was not able to make it. When she went she kept saying how nice and HOT it was in Hawaii while back at home in UT they were having a blizzard!!! So this is for Teresa one of the sweetest people I now and love so she can remember the STEAMING HOT vacation in Hawaii.

The little hawaiian girl came out sooo CUTE, I think I am going
 to have to make more of her. She is just Adorable!

Thanks for stopping by... for your next stop head on over to  Mrs. Tammy she has another wonderful and HOT project for you.

Disney Album and Frebbie

So I am finally starting to work on our Disney scrapbook, this is from our February trip! I know that doesn't sound that long ago, but I know if I don't do it soon it will join my box of "to do" pages that get left behind. As I am sorting the pics and doing the organizational part of it I found some really great sites with AWESOME disney SVGs and since I do not own any of the disney cartridges I am resorting to all SVGs for this album.

Here is a file I did for my our pictures from the Astro Balsters Ride:

We went on that ride like 5 times, partly because the line was always less than 10 min but mostly because my son and my newphew LOVED the ride. I was looking around for SVG for this ride but no one seem to have this. I did find BUZZ, the ALIENS and ZURG that will go with this page, but created this logo from this picture I found from the ride:

You can check out these 2 blogs which have tons of wonderful disney svgs:

They both have an amazing collection of Disney files. Reddy specially, her WHOLE blog is dedicated to DISNEY files, how cool is that!! Mardenz has a great variety of cartoon characters a MUST stop if you do kids cards/layouts. Hope someone else finds my file helpful, you can download the SVG H E R E to download the file. Remember these are for personal use only, I don't mind you telling other people about my files I just ask you give them the link so they can find it. Thanks for stopping by! I will try and post more files as I work on getting my books done.
