Another beautiful Disney princess! Belle and the tea set and rose border are from the Dreams Come True cartridge. (The picture isn’t great. You will have to trust me that her flesh is not the same bright white as her blouse).

Nothing fancy here, just Daisy Duck looking fabulous. I love this picture of Sean giving her a high five. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any good pictures of her flirting with my husband. You have to watch that duck!

Box cards are all the rage and they are awfully adorable, so I decided to make some for my sons’ teachers. These are neat because they stand up like a box but fold down into an envelope. The basic box card template was designed by this creative blogger and if you follow her blog, she’ll email you the file. I jazzed it up a bit by creating outside panels for the box and I changed the insert. I welded my pop-up elements to the insert rather than just attaching them with adhesive. If you will notice on the pack of crayons, the shadow is actually part of the insert itself. I created an envelope for it using my new We Are Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.
I had to post this layout on Cinco de Mayo, of course! All the images, except Donald, are from the Cricut Ole cartridge. I made Donald myself from a coloring page using my Silhouette software. I made a slit in the Donald image so I could slide the guitar into his hands.
I can share the Design Space file but without Donald.

Most of the princesses are going to fall into the category of characters we only have one good picture of because my boys have zero interest in meeting them and therefore have zero patience for posing in pictures with them. And it’s not a boy thing, it’s a princesses are not giant and fluffy thing.
I, however, love to meet princesses and I also love to cut them with my Cricut. Snow White and all the other images are on the Disney Happily Ever After cartridge. These princesses are notoriously hard to cut at smaller sizes. Even with the more precise cutting of the Explore, I still can’t cut them smaller than about 5.5 to 6 inches tall and have all the small pieces, like the whites of the eyes, be usable.

My next major undertaking is to get my hundreds of Disney photos scrapped. I decided to start with character pictures, specifically the characters I only have a single (usable) picture of.
Pocahontas, Meeko, the title and the frame are all from the Disney Dreams Come True cartridge.

The sock monkey, train and dump truck are from the B is for Boy cartridge. The book is from Disney Classics, and the dinosaur is from Dino Play. The circles are drawn with the Cricut. The title is the Library Fonts cartridge.
You can see the details of the layout here. You can share any project you make in Design Space by simply sharing the URL. However, if you add a font of your own or an image from a third party, you cannot share that project.
The pen I used is from Recollections. These pens are the same as the Cricut pens but cheaper and you can use a coupon with them because they don’t say “Cricut” on them. But be aware that only the Fine or Medium tipped pens will work. Other pens that I have used in the Explore include American Crafts chalk pens, Pilot Precise V5 Extra Fine pens, and Pentel Sunburst Metallic gel pens. This lovely blogger has done several posts about using pens in the Explore and finding fonts that write well.
