Princess Room in the Making part 1

Grace has been asking for a princess room for a while now.  I finally got around to starting on that...

I have been feeling crafty.  So I took out the Cricut and the Princess cartridge and got to work.  I made four wall hangings for Grace's room.  I bought four 12x12 paint canvases from Michaels.  I adhered hot pink cardstock to the canvases with Loctite spray adhesive ( make sure you use this outside with cardboard or newspaper as a backing).  I also added another layer of white cardstock.

I found these really neat Disney Princess glitter papers from Creative Imaginations Signature Collection. The blue is Cinderella themed, the yellow is Belle, the Purple has crowns in the background, and the pink is Sleeping Beauty themed.  I bought these at Wooten's Scrapbook store in Ontario. I love that I live close to this store now.  Wooten's is scrapbook heaven!
The glitter paper makes a great background to the images I cut for the canvases.

First up is a princess.  This was two different images from the cartridge.  The paper doll girl and the princess dress.  These were cut at 10 inches.  I didn't want to make them to big.  I wanted to make sure there was some room left so the image didn't look crowded.  I used hot pink glitter paper for the accents.  On the crown, wand, and flower accent on the dress, I used Inkssentials Glossy Accents to make it look shiny.

I also used glitter paper for the accents on the unicorn.  The hair was from a shiny pink cardstock paper.  I used Tattered Angels Shimmer mist spray to add shimmer to the body of the unicorn.  you can't tell in this picture but it has a subtle shimmer.

I love this castle.  I actually used this image to make castle shaped princess chipboard albums.  These were a hot item when I had an active Etsy store and scrapbook business.  I used three shades of pink and glitter paper for the accents.

This frog is just adorable.  Every princess needs a froggie to remind us that no prince is perfect!  I used green glitter paper for the body. Also, I used the Inkssentials Glossy Accents to give the crown depth.

These were pretty easy to make thanks to my Cricut.  I love that thing!  It took me about two hours from cutting out the images to adhering everything to the canvases. 

Princess Grace gives her approval.  She loves her new princess decorations.  Her room is quite different today. We took down her toddler bed and she is now sleeping in a big girl bed!

Up next...a new princess themed name banner.  I have a neat idea for this that will incorporate her favorite Disney princesses.  I have another wall hanging...I'm waiting on a hot pink frame I ordered from Hobby Lobby.  I also have a huge Castle wall decal I bought from Zulily that will be going up tomorrow.  More pictures to come...
