Treat Bags - Sesame Street

More treat bags!!!
I did this bags for my great nephew!!  (I got chills thinking that I'm getting old---errr  -- I might add that my sister had my nephew very, very young! LOL) {maybe I got it wrong and is just my nephew's son?}
Anyway, I used Sesame Street to create this bags I purchased at PartyCity.

This is the B-day boy's front of the bag

This is the back of his bag.
And here are the bags for the attending kids.
This time I only had to make 14 treat bags!
I used Core'dinations paper for most of the cuts.

Golf with Grandbaby, Priceless!! -- Silhouette SD

I created this layout using files from Silhouette SD.  I really like Two-Page layouts rather than one pagers.

Grandpa is a golf addict and grand baby thinks he golfs as good or better than Tiger.  And of course she is going to be better than Lorena Ochoa!!

Sorry for the low quality pictures- they were taken with my iPhone...
Everything was inked and the paper is from DCWV summer stack. I used glitter glue around the cloud. The grass layers were cut or trimmed with fiskars scissors.
Let me tell you, but cutting or welding letters on Gypsy is much easier than cutting letter by letter!!! layering and than gluing!!!

Treat Bags/Purses - Cricut Forever Young and Mickey and Friends carts

I created this Purses and Bags for my goddaughter and her cousin's b-day party.
I used the Forever Young to cut the purses using 12x24 cardstock and decorated with Minnie Mouse.
The boy bags I purchased at PartyCity and decorated with Mickey Mouse.

I welded the letters to for Abby's name on Gypsy before cutting purse. It created and opening, I than placed a piece of cardstock on back and glued the little pieces previously cut? huh?
Lots of little pieces to glue!!!

Here you can see a red purse's back and a yellow purse's front.
I also used Imaginisce to create buttons with little Abby and Chris' faces and added some ribbon and bling. My first button was of Mickey's face, the other of the b-day kids.
The purses can hold plenty of candy!!!!

Spoiled Card - Cricut Animal Kingdom, Base Camp and Mickey and Friends

I created this card to enter My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday Challenge

The dog was cut three times, one blackout on a darker brown and the shadow and regular cut on lighter brown cardstock using the Animal Kingdom cart.  The letters were cut using Base Camp cart and welding the paw print on the Gypsy from Mickey and Friends cart!
All paper is DCWV and distress walnut ink was used to ink all parts.

My First Chipboard Book -

I created this book for Angel (so it had to be masculine) about our two dogs-pets-companions-babies Tiny and Moto.

It does not have too many bows or ribbon so that Angel can carry/hook on his Golf bag

I was going to use DCWV Pet Stack scraps, but I figured that the DCWV Pet Mat Stack was easier to use and cut to measure.  I first glued each of the 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 mats to each chipboard page lining it up on two sides, than I treamed with an exacto knife.
I inked all edges with walnut ink.

The chipboard book was $1 at Michaels
