3rd Edition of The Original Disney~Pixar Blog Hop Day 2!



Welcome back for Day 2 of The Original Disney~Pixar Blog Hop! You should be arriving from Shawn's Blog, if you just happened to stumbled across my blog you will definitely want to head back to Shawn's so you don't miss any of the fun! If you weren't here hopping with us yesterday you can check out my post from then by clicking here>>> Day 1 Disney~Pixar Blog Hop, or head back to Shawn's blog post from yesterday to start at the very beginning. 

Today I have two pretty simple projects for you.  I purchased this pencil cup at Hobby Lobby awhile back.  It is made by Pinnacle Frames & Accents.  I cut a piece of the Mickey head cardstock to fit inside the plastic cover along with a strip of white cardstock to make the Mickey head ribbon stand out a little better.  To finish off the top I used this pretty yellow gathered ribbon that I had in my stash.  This pencil holder now has a special place on my crafting desk!


For my second project, I've been wanting to make something for some time now to have for my blog candy packages that I send out.  I never seem to have time to sit down and make a card when it comes time to get the packages in the mail so I decided to do up a bunch of tags at the same time to have on hand.  I thought these were a perfect solution! 


I cut the Mickey heads from the Mickey & Friends Cricut cartridge at 4" and used the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder to emboss just the ears.  Of course I had to finish them off with my custom personalized stamp by Lisa at Stamp Out Online .  If you are in the market for a personalized stamp, be sure to check out her website.  You won't be sorry!  

Now for the blog candy for day 2!  I picked up a Disney Classics Cricut Cartridge for one of you lucky people to win!  To be eligible to win you must become a follower if you aren't already and leave a comment on this post.  Scroll down to find out two other ways to earn chances of winning! 

For a second chance to win this cartridge please post a link to todays post on your blog about our blog hop along with a picture of the cartridge, then come back here and leave me a link to your post.

For a third chance to win this cartridge please grab my blog button and place in your blog sidebar, then come back here and leave me a link to your blog. 

Please leave individual comments for each thing you do.  So in total you can have up to three comments and three chances to win!

You will have until Tuesday morning September 27, 2011 at 9 AM EST to enter for my blog candy. Winner will be announced that same day. I will use Random org to draw the winner and they will have one week to contact me and claim their prize.

We are also trying something new this go around and having a Disney~Pixar link up party on Monday! We will have 3 categories: Layouts, Cards and Everything Else! My blog will be hosting the Card Category, but I will have links to the other 2 blogs as well. I will be offering up a $25 Disney Gift Card for the winner of my Card Category Link-Up Party so be sure to come back and share a Disney~Pixar creation with me!!!


Now I send you off to visit Kim's blog uscrap2 for the next stop of our hop . I am very excited to see what she has created for all of us!

Scrappin Rabbit Designs said...

Love your pencil holder Melissa. What a perfect addition to your craft table. I like the idea of creating a tag for blog candy too. I may have to scrap lift that idea from you and use something to fit my theme. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi again Melissa,
Starting Day 2 of the HOP...it has been fun getting back into Hopping since it has been a while for me. What a great idea to "boost" up the ribbon with white cardstock. The embossing on the tags is cute, too. Good thinking girl

That's a perfect pencil holder to add a bit of Disney to a typical school day! Next year when I go back to Disney for my honeymoon, I want to get a popcorn bucket because I've seen pictures of some teachers using them for spare pencils and other writing supplies for the kiddies. Love Disney!

I LOVE your tags too! I have my own stamp from PSA Essentials, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE your Mickey head one!!!
