Creativation 2017!

Hi everyone! I just returned from the Creativation 2017 trade show (formerly CHA) in Phoenix, Az. I had the best time meeting so many wonderful and creative people. I also had a blast helping out in the Glue Dots booth. Over the next few days, I want to give a recap of my experience and show some fun new products I found while I was there.

The Glue Dots booth turned out great and everyone loved our projects.

We made these cute planner clips as our Glue Dots make and take.

We had some fun times with the photo booth props!

I ran into some old friends and made some new ones

I even found some really cool new products to tell you all about!

This new craft storage caddy system from Deflecto is great! You can stack several on top of one another, but still easily access your favorite embellishments. The inserts even come out and are interchangeable! I can't wait to use one for all of my planner supplies and share my review with all of my planner friends from our Planner Friends Events Meetup group.

Tomorrow I will continue my recap of Creativation 2017 with a look at the new planner punch system by We R Memory Keepers!

Let’s be friends!

Hidden Mickey Rhinestone Planner Clip Tutorial for The Disney Pixar Fans Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Disney and crafting are a magical combination, and we are so happy you joined us to day for this blog hop.  Some of the crafters participating in this event have been doing this together since 2011!  Over the years the hop has grown but one thing has always stayed the same . . . amazing crafting projects that feature your favorite characters from Disney and Pixar movies.

Hi everyone! Tammy with you today with a fun Mickey Mouse planner clip tutorial. It's so easy to create cute planner clips with your Cricut cutting machine. I used the Mickey Mouse Symbol cut file to cut these cute Hidden Mickey heads out of rhinestone sticker sheets I found at Joann Craft Stores. Here is how I made mine...


Rhinestone stickers sheets
Cricut cutting machine
Mickey Mouse Symbol cutting file
Paper clip


1. Load cut file into your Cricut Design Space and resize to 2 inches square.
2. Place rhinestone sticker sheet upside down on your Cricut Cutting mat. Use packing tape to secure the rhinestone sheet if your mat isn't sticky enough to hold it in place.

3. Cut out at least 2 of the Hidden Mickeys and remove sticker backing from both.

4. Place paper clip between the two stickers and press together firmly.

5. Place in your favorite planner and enjoy!!
