Welcome to Tip Time Tuesday at the Creative Cutter Room!

Hi, this is Elaine from ExpressionsByElaine  I am sharing a tip with you today for Creative Cutter Room!

Last month I shared some tips for organizing your scraps. And while I was organizing I realized how many large pieces I had. 

So I decided to go through my scraps and get out all the large pieces I had like these.
And cut them down to use for my A2 size card bases. 
Some were cut to 4.25" X 11"
like this.
And some were cut to 5.5" x 8.5"
like this.
Then fold them into a base for your cards and they are ready to go.  Grab the color you want for your 
card base and start creating your card!

This will help reduce your scraps and 
save you some time.

I hope this has been a helpful tip for you, I know it has saved me 
a lot of time when creating my cards.

Thanks for joining us at Creative Cutter Room!

Disney Blog Hop...and Graduation Gift Idea

Welcome to Day One of the Disney Blog Hop
You should have arrived here from Madison's Blog.  Wasn't her project just AMAZING....she is so talented!!!
We have a lot of fun in store for you.  Not only will you get to see some wonderful Disney Pixar themed projects, but you also have the chance to win prizes along the way!  And at the end of the day tomorrow there is even a way that you can enter YOUR OWN Disney Project into a challenge!
Marlo froContainYa Crafts has donated a GRAND PRIZE of  a Scrap'N Easel-Ette! 

 (yes, you have to come back for Day Two of the hop in order to win the Grand Prize)
Well here is my project.......My Niece Graduates this year and she is not a flowers type of girl so I wanted to make her something more her style.  She has beautiful long black hair so I though MULAN would be an appropriate representative.
I used a crystal vase and filled it with colored glass gems.

I used Happily Ever After Cricut Cartridge to cut Mulan button #47 on page 74 at 5"
I used Paper Doll Dress Up & My Gypsy to create a graduation robe & cap that would fit
I used clear packaging tape to tape all of the airhead candy to 1/8" x 12" dowels and then arranged them in the bowl.  I also used clear cellophane bags with bright pink lips to wrap the base of the dowels before adding them into the bowl to create a fuller look.
The bread tag was made from the Walk In My Garden Cartridge cut at 1.40" x 3.50" and then stamped with an I Cling Graduation stamp.
I used some green tule to tie a bow around the vase and then I added the bread tag to the knot.
Now for some BLOG CANDY.
Leave me a comment on this post and I will choose one lucky winner to receive this Tinkerbell rub-on sheet and an I Cling stamp set.  You don't have to be a Follower, but I always appreciate new Bloggy friends.
(Winner will be announced on the 22nd)
Now it is time for me to send you off to Lori's Blog
remember to come back tomorrow for the second day of the hop!
Here is a Graduation Mini Album that I made for my son that would also be a very easy project to make for your Graduating Senior.
Here is the entire blog hop if you get lost on the way!
