{Disney Class "WHAT A BUNCH OF CHARACTERS" Scrapbook Pages}

So, I have finally gotten around to taking photos of my next Disney Class's pages. I don't know why, but that part always slows me down. :(

The entire spread

Left Page

Right Page

Donald, Daisy, Mickey and Pluto make up most of the title.

Up close to each of them. I didn't want to have to layer and glue down more words that we needed to (especially since we have 5 characters to put together PLUS part of the title) so I printed these on cardstock, inked the edges and layered them on black cardstock.

The rest of the title. Cut letters, layered on a white shadow and popped up from the page with 3D pop dots.

Here's Goofy. I just love him! :) The circle can be used for journaling. I thought it might be fun to go around the edges and then fill in the middle, too.

This spot if perfect for smaller photos. The 4 white circles can be used for anything. I am going to use mine for the year.

The others got a close up. Goofy should have one, too! :)

So there you have it. What do you think? It really is a colorful page, and I love it! Excited about the class coming up. See you all then!

{Hello BOO Kitty Halloween Scrapbook Pages}

How cute is Hello Kitty? I have had a fascination with her since I was 7 or 8. There is just something about that little face of her that draws you in and hooks you! :D

I think this is the first Hello Kitty spread I have finished. I am so excited about the way these pages turned out! Rarely do I plan layouts and have them turn out exactly as I saw them in my mind. A rare phenomenon, I tell you! °Ü°

Again, this is one of my "freedom" pages, because as you will notice, no photo mats. This gives you the choice of 5x7 down to the smallest photos you can imagine. PLUS, you can arrange them any way you choose. I love that! ♥

The entire spread.

Here is page one...

And here is page 2!

This little bat and moon pop right off the page. They are accented with glitter. How cute is he?

Hello Kitty stands about 8" tall and her costume is cut from faux black suede, so she is fuzzy just like a really black kitty should be! She also pops off the page.

Here you see some dimension. Her bow and purple sucker pop off the page as well. Both are cut from glitter card stock.

Mr. Pumpkin is cut from glitter card stock, too.

You know how I loved flourishes, I had to put one in.

Here is the piece that ties the two pages together. It is shimmery and also has glitter spots on it. It need some more BLING so I outlined it with more than 50 black gem stones. I love the effect.

Here is the second part of the title. "Hello" and "Kitty" are cut from white glitter card stock. The "Boo" is cut from lined black card stock and pops off the page.

So, on the Hello Kitty Cricut cart, there isn't a Hello Kitty witch like this one. They do have one, but it wasn't the one I imagined when planning the pages. This hat is found on the Happy Hauntings cart and so I cut it and attached to Hello Kitty's head. I can't believe how cut it is. It looks like it was designed just for her!

The hat is inked and her band and buckle are glitter card stock, of course! °Ü° I also added yellow glitter to buckle for more texture.

She also is a journaling tag! Yes, just pull her hat up and she pulls out to reveal a spot for journaling. Her hands stay put and the tag is attached so that when you slide her back in, her chin fits nicely over the paper.
The papers are all a little different, which brings great texture to the pages. There is heavy card stock, shimmer paper, glitter card stock and textured card stock.

This was such a fun page to create! Can't wait to get more done!

{My "Gorgeous" Girl Layout}

It's not often that I put my own personal pages on this blog, but I had to share this one. This is my beautiful, youngest daughter. She is such joy. Both of my girls are. I love this picture of her. I took it last Thanksgiving. It has been sitting my scrap table for the past few months just waiting for me to create a page for it. I recently purchased the The Black Current Stack by DCWV. I kid you not, I have hardly any of it left! I love it and will have to go pick up another one soon. Anyways... I knew I wanted to use that paper for her photo.

There are lots of layers and the reason some of the flowers look orangy is because they are foiled and the flash did something weird to them! I used shimmer card stock and there is a little bit of everything in here. Did you see all the gems? You know I am addicted. I wonder if there is support group for people like me? °Ü° I inked and distressed the edges. Not a lot, but just enough.

For me, this is truly scrappin'! This is what it is all about. I love making beautiful keepsakes so that my grand-babies can see how gorgeous their mom was back when she was 14! °Ü°

{Monster Mash Halloween Scrapbook Pages}

I have always wanted to go as the Bride of Frankenstein for Halloween! I think it would be fun for my husband and I to dress and Frank and Bride. One of these years. How morbidly cute are these two?

I have started scrapping my pages with a little freedom built into them. What do I mean by this? Well, as you can see, there are no photo mats. When you create a page using no distinct photo mats, it gives you room to play with photos later. You can add 5x7s, 4x6s or lots of 4x4s or 3x3s and the best part of all? You can add a variation of all sizes. Add as many or few as you would like. It is a freedom I have come to love about designing this way. Be honest, what do you think about it?

The title is large! It is a 3D title in that the letters are popped up from the black shadowing. The "MONSTER" is cut from glitter card stock and the "MASH" is cut from distressed looking papers.

The mummy is so thick! All of the characters are. There is tons of layering that make up each image. making them sturdy. I cut extra layers for the mummy so he would have that genuine wrapped look. I also used Stickles for his eyes and black spots, which gives the glitter look I was going for. The spider web behind him is accented with a silver glitter gel pen and the spider is cut from faux suede paper and popped up for dimension. He has glitter eyes, too.

A little more of a close-up so you can see all of the glitter effects.

The title. The letters are inked with purple

Journaling frame. It is actually 2 frames layered one on top of the other. The bottom one has white glitter that shines through the edges of the smaller, upper frame. Now that I look at it, I think it needs gems with I will go in and put on. Don't you think? I love the little pumpkin. He's a bit different but certainly fits in with this crowd.

He's a cooky little guys, isn't he? :D

I love tulle and I think it looks great with Halloween decor! Plus I think it brings the feminine touch the pages needs. The little "button" has a 31 on it.

Notice that through out the spread, I have distressed and inked the edges.

And here they are! Looks like she is taking his hand for a dance that he is reluctantly asking for, doesn't it? Cracks me up.

Here's Frank. I love his expression. He is so not impressed! Again, I used Stickles for his eyes and the white V part of his neck. His bolts are cut from brushed metal looking paper. I also cut extra pieces so that there was a distinction between his shirt, pants and shoes.

I also inked around his face and hands to add some dimension.

I think she looks ghoulishly-fabulous! °Ü° I added some purple chalk to her hair and her famous white stripe is decorated with glitter (Stickles). He dress was cut from spider web paper, but was a little boring so I took my glitter gel pen and traced the web to give her some more sparkle!

She has a little purple eye shadow and red glitter lips. °Ü°

Here you can see all the layers and the fact that they are popped off the page. The black cat is also cut from black faux suede paper and has red glitter eyes and a little purple bat color.

So that's it! I love Halloween and had a blast creating this page. I have at least 2 more spreads I am working on from the cartridge; Happy Hauntings.

Happy Haunting to you! ;)
