Thinking of you floral card


Here's a little lovely for you! I tag teamed this card with my daughter. I provided her with the glitter paper I created with an outline sticker applied. She's 10 years old and she colored the flowers for me using Spectrum Noir. Then I colored the background using Copics and made the card. I hope you love it as much as we do!


Supplies:
  • Outline stickers from Stamp on It
  • Spectrum Noir
  • The Stamps of Life
  • Hero Arts Neon ink
  • Elizabeth Crafts microfine glitter (warm diamond)
  • card base We R Memory Keepers - inked rose
  • Provo Craft patterned paper
  • Recollections bling
  • blue sequins from my stash

Elizabeth Crafts "innies" rose card


I've got two versions of the same card using Elizabeth Crafts "innies." Yes! I used what was left over after I peeled up the outline sticker and used it on another card. This is scrapping at it's best because there's nothing left over. I wanted to use some older supplies, so I pulled out 3 punches...two borders and the Stampin' Up! word window for my tiny sentiment.


Supplies:

  • Stampin' Up! word window punch
  • recollections bling
  • DCWV black adhesive cardstock
  • gold border from stash
  • Clear and Simple Stamps
  • memento
  • EK success border punch
  • Recollections
  • card base We R Memory Keepers - inked rose
  • Elizabeth Crafts "innies"

Last two pages for my Disney album - featuring Paper Wizard


I am DONE!!! Whoop whoop. The sense of accomplishment is amazing! Well, I guess it's time to go see the mouse again!! Shhhh! The kids don't know!! I'll be creating a new album next year using more amazing Paper Wizard titles and the Simple Stories Say Cheese II collection!!

The last two pages feature Mosaic Moments, Say Cheese (paper, stickers, brads and a snap card) and the All moused out title. I wanted to highlight our rides on Space Mountain and show my dear son who was 2 at the time and all his pics were from the stroller.


The last page came together so quickly because the background page was already styled. I simple added the title, my son a sticker and the snap pocket (with a license from the driving ride stuck to it) to hold all of the maps and activities that were going on at that time. The best part... the cardstock is double sided, so even though there's nothing on the back of this last page it's cute anyway! I might write a letter for the last page with some thoughts about the trip. But if I don't it's still cool.


Thanks for stopping by!

Disney's Princess Tiana Layout featuring CTMH Flip flaps


I've got lots of pics for you today featuring Disney's Princess Tiana, whom we met at Magic Kingdom in 2011. This moment was like magic for me even more than it was for my daughter. It was a dream come true to have an African-American princess to call my very own!

With few materials I created a dynamic layout I will treasure for a lifetime! The grid paper is from Mosaic Moments, square punch from Marvy, The Princess Tiana paper, Title and stickers are by EK Success and the extra added drama was created with Close To My Heart (CTMH) Flip flaps.



The photos were taken by Disney photographers and I applied frames etc. on the Disney site.


I placed the chipboard title on the oustide of the flip flap so there would be no pulling and bunching.



Here's the layout altogether with the flip flap closed and then with it open to show my journaling. The Tiana's Garden Glen sign was a picture I took and printed 4x6. I then cut it out and used it to embellish my journaling.




Thanks for stopping by!

Disney's The Little Mermaid Scrapbook Layout


Every now and again I love using a kit when my mojo is low. This Disney's The Little Mermaid layout started as a Mosaic Moments kit with all of the pre-cut squares, ribbon and cornerstones. Since it was a sea theme, I thought it would be great for the picture of my family, Ariel and Eric. This was my daughter's favorite princess at the time. It was so magical for her to meet her and Eric. They were so attentive and in character. It was truly amazing!


In order to complete the layout I added some die cuts using my Cricut Explore and a Disney cartridge. Disney characters have SO many LAYERS!! I'm happy with how Ariel came out, the title and the name shell. To add a little sparkle and shine I added star gem embellishments by Prima.



Here's the layout altogether. Thanks for stopping by!

***************************************************************

This destination stop is the Bahamas!! 

My family went on a cruise to the Bahamas in 2013. For the opening page of the scrapbook I created this interactive scrapbook page. The major supplies include Mosaic Moments (dies and grid paper), Flip flaps from Close to My Heart, The Paper Wizard and the scrapbooking kits available on board Carnival cruise line. I was able to fit 3 layouts into one. Life changing....


To start, I attached the adhesive ends of the flip flaps to the top and the bottom of the page protector.  Then I cut 2 pages of 12x12 grid paper in half. I used the first one to showcase the striking title from Paper Wizard and a photo of the water and sky from the beach in Freeport, Bahamas. Using the Mosaic Moments dies I cut the picture into strips and adhered the strips perfectly spaced thanks to the guidelines on the grid paper.

I love when I go on vacation and there's scrapbooks and/or scrapbooking kits available. Carnival had two. I got them both and I used half of a sheet to showcase some journaling and our pre-boarding shot.


Voila! When you open the flaps there's a scrapbook page inside plus the the other side of the flip flaps. The pictures are from the same beach in Freeport using Mosaic Moments and patterned paper (inked with Memento ink) and embellishments from the Carnival kits. I also included some embellishments from my stash. I believe they are from Jolees, Recollections and Jet Setters by Reminisce.

Here's a closeup look at each portion of the layout. The kids had a ball making a sand castle. They didn't have a bucket but their shoes were good enough to transport water!




It was challenging to figure out how to make the aesthetic work with using the flip flaps. But now that I have tried it, I am excited to use them again. My books are going to be so more dynamic now! Thanks for hopping along!

Princess Jazmine and Aladdin layout using EK Success, Simple Stories and Mosaic Moments


Jasmine is one of my daughter's favorite princesses! She came bearing messages from Ariel and Eric. It was so cute to see them fraternizing! Aladdin was very cool too! This Mosaic Moments layout was a slam dunk using their grid paper and dies. The patterned paper and embellishments are from EK Success and the snap cards are from the Simple Stories Say Cheese collection.


We waited a while to get our homemade autograph books signed! It was worth the wait for sure! I've started putting stickers on pictures... It took me a long time to be comfortable with it but it actually helps the overall motif. I added a crown to my daughter's head and some words to another couple pics.


Here's the layout altogether. Feel free to use the links below to check out the rest of this album. I'm still creating a few more layouts before I am done. So stay tuned...


Thanks for stopping by! Crafty blessings!

Magic Kingdom, Mosaic Moments and Simple Stories Say Cheese


I've got a non-matching but related Disney layout for you today. On the left is a pic of me and my daughter and the beautiful Cinderella Castle in magic Kingdom at night. The right-hand page is our chance meeting with Mary Poppins on main street.

Mosaic Moments gird paper, Simple Stories say cheese collection and Queen and Co. felt adhesive "main street USA" border.


I tied in these two pages with the colors and patterns of the collection. The stickers, snap cards, border stickers etc. all coordinate. It makes scrapbooking easy!


Here's the pages together. These are the only two single pages in my album but I love 'em.


Thanks for stopping by! Crafty blessings!

Mother's Day Card featuring Clear and Simple Stamps


It's Mother's Day!! Wishing a happy and healthy day to all my mom friends around the world!!

Today I have a card for you! It's a little out of my comfort zone because of the large bold background print on the base card from Micheals. Of course it all started with the beautiful lady outline sticker from Elizabeth Crafts. I made my own glitter paper using Sookwang tape, Stampendous mixed media cardstock and warm diamond glitter. The focal is perched on a beautiful nestabilities die cut from Sizzix.


I colored the focal with black and red Copic markers and fussy cut the scene. The bow and the white section of her skirt are 3D - popped up on foam tape. The burlap ribbon from The Paper Studio seemed to break up the pattern and bring focus to the focal. 


The internal sentiments are from Clear and Simple Stamps in Versafine Ink. Thanks for stopping by!
