It's a doll's life

With two little girls, it's no surprise that our house is full of dolls: Barbies, American Girls, Groovy Girls, Disney princesses...the list goes on and on. Appropriately enough, this month's "Click It With Cricut" challenge on the Imaginisce blog was to use the doll shapes on the Once Upon a Princess cartridge.

I went a little doll crazy...


But I just couldn't resist creating this layout about my girls and their dolls...






And then I spotted the mermaid costume. This paper-doll-making thing is addictive.


Everything on this gift bag was cut using the Once Upon a Princess cartridge. I used the Gift Bag cut to 5 3/4" and Doll2 cut at 3" from some Imaginisce Splash Dance papers. The sentiment is a rub-on that I applied to the Pajamas tag, and I finished the bag with the clam rub-on and some i-Rock hot rocks to accent the mermaid.

Be sure to hop over to today's post on the Imaginisce blog for my third project (using the Enchanted collection), plus some fabulously inspiring projects from fellow design team members Melinda Spinks and Liz Qualman. But first, leave a comment below for an extra chance to win a fabulous Cricut prize pack from Imaginisce!
