Cricut "Tinkerbell & Friends" Showcase


Good morning, crafting friends!

This is Jen and I've "hijacked" the MPC blog today! I'm here to sprinkle some fairy dust on your Monday and share some fantastic cuts from the Cricut Disney Tinkerbell & Friends cartridge. This cartridge features Tinkerbell and her fairy friends - Fawn, Rosetta, Iridessa, and Silvermist; as well as pretty botanicals, phrases and other items from the movie. 

Now, anyone who is familiar with the Disney cartridges knows that they can be quite challenging -- all of those itty-bitty pieces and layers can make you cross-eyed! However, if you persevere, you end up with wonderful results!

The first items I created with this cartridge were for a 2nd birthday party for one of my nieces. Kylie loves Tink and her pals, so I created some "larger than life" fairy decorations -- each of the fairies measures at least 11" tall.

Silvermist
I used an iridescent glitter glue to give the ladies' wings some sparkle; and 3-D Crystal Lacquer for their eyes, lips and Silvermist's shoes. The eyes are always the trickiest part of piecing any Cricut Disney character. I always cut the white piece and omit the iris cut; and then I use markers for their eye color. Way easier! The fairies and banner (below) are now hanging in Kylie's room -- she loves them!

This cartridge has tons of beautiful flowers. I chose two to use in Kylie's banner. The banner pennants were cut using George & Basic Shapes and the letters are from the Storybook cartridge.




I created this tag using another flower from the cartridge and the leaf cut. The tag base was cut using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge. Ink, gold distress Stickles, pen doodling, a rubber stamped sentiment and some jute complete this cute tag.



My final Tinkerbell & Friends project for today's showcase is a Valentine's Day card. This is one of two beautiful butterflies on the cartridge. And again, some Stickles and pen doodling added the final touches to this cute card for my 8 year old daughter. (The patterned paper came from Target's $1 bin!)


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll come on over to my blog and check out the Tinkerbell cake we made, too. (No Cricut involved there, this time.) 

Have a fantastic day and don't forget to stop back tomorrow to see what fabulous creations the Designers have come up with!
