365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#242 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop DAY 4 Mickey Christmas Frame

Hi everyone welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog HopDAY 4 hosted by Sylvia Bella Scrapbook Designs. If you are here from Sylvia's blog then you are in the right spot!  This hop is all about making 12 different Christmas gifts 12 days in a row and the last day we will be posting is on December 6th.

For today's Christmas gift I made a cute Mickey Mouse Christmas frame to give to my sister Patty, she loves Disney as much as I do! I plan on surprising her and giving this frame to her with a picture already printed out of her and her son at Disneyland during Christmas time!

I got this blank frame at Michael's for $1, and got Mickey from the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge, the Santa hat is from the Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge. ( Can I just say that I am totally loving my E2, it cuts so much better than my original Expression, with my old Cricut I wouldn't even attempt to make a Disney cut this small because I knew it would tear my paper even after playing around with the settings and blade.)

I added pop dots under Mickey and added red rick-rack ribbon to the top and placed 2 white buttons on top, and made my own chipboard shape using a sticker and 3 layers of cereal box chipboard for the sentiment.

Here's a close up of the clean lines on Mickey using my new E2! I also found the perfect green paint to match the paper.

BLOG CANDY!! In honor of me creating 12 projects 12 days in a row, I will be celebrating by giving away ONE $10 gift certificate to one of my favorite online stores......  PEACHY KEEN STAMPS!!! All you have to do is leave me a comment on all 12 of my 12 Days of Christmas post and be a follower. The last day will be on December 6th. I will announce a random winner on Wed. 12/7 good luck!
