Minnie Mouse T-shirt

OMG, 2 posts in one week? I'm on a roll! LOL

As some of you know, we are taking our kids to Disneyland in October and we are SO excited because this will be Julie's first trip out there! She is such a HUGE Mickey and Minnie fan (As well as princesses) so I know it will be so worth it!

I love Pinterest and the other day I saw someone had pinned a post about a Minnie t-shirt made from applique that was zebra print and of course I knew I had to scraplift it! The awesome thing about accumulating and HOARDING so much crafting material is that you sometimes have all the supplies you need for a project therefore, in my mind, making it almost free! (hahaha) :) To make this shirt, all I had to do was buy the shirt from Walmart ($3.88) since I had the heat transfer vinyl already I was good to go!

To me, heat transfer vinyl is soooo much easier to use that regular vinyl because it already comes with backing material, eliminating the transfer tape step :) I used the zebra iron on from Hobby Lobby (I found it in the t-shirt aisle) and it's iron on material that you can cut on your die cut machine! SO ADORABLE! I think they have zebra, pink polka dot, etc. The glitter is the heat vinyl transfer and it stuck like a charm :)

Now, the only thing I have left to do is stitch around the edges so that I can make sure it is secure and she is good to wear it for her first day at Disneyland :) If anyone wants or needs step by step instructions, let me know and I will be happy to make a video showing you how to make your own shirt! :)


Close up! Don't you just love zebra print? Augh, I can never get enough! :)

Have a great weekend! :)

Disney Princess Paper Doll

Hiiiii! :)) As most of you know, Julie is a HUGE HUGE HUGE Disney Princess fan (and while we are at it, I will admit to it too! ;) and she absolutely ADORES the Disney Princess website. (If you haven't checked it out, you really should! It is SO cute!)

So she loves paper dolls and the website has a paper doll template that you can print out and then cut out and glue together to make your own. I thought, hmmm, 'I wonder if I can do it on my Cameo?' and guess what? I did! Therefore saving me having to cut anything out with scissors! (I'm SO very lazy now!) If any of you own the Cameo and would like the template all ready to go, email me at msalmabrooks@yahoo.com and I will send it to you!

Here are a few pics of the doll and of course, my own real life princess :)

This is the pieces after they have been printed and cut by the Cameo


Adorable right? We had to add some "bling" because some words printed out on her dress and we wanted to cover it up!
 And here is my real life princess, Julie, admiring her doll. It's amazing what makes her happy!

Julie's Ballet video

You know, when I first started this blog a long time ago, I had done it to keep my family updated on my children and life in general. Now with most being on Facebook, my blog has usually been about my crafty side but I MISS blogging constantly and I miss talking about my kids! hahaha :) That is why it's titled my Pink LIFE :) So for today's post I wanted to share the cutest little video I have!

Julie is one month into her beginning "ballet" classes and she LOVES it! This class is for 2 years old and up so you can definitely tell who the older more "Experienced" kids are but she's learning and she is just having the time of her life! Can you possibly imagine anything CUTER than toddlers as ballerinas? Yeah, me either.

 I hope you enjoy this quick video! :) This upcoming week I will have a Silhouette tutorial on how to print a title and then cut around it. Easy!

Have a happy and blessed week! :)
