Disney Layout #3

Hi, everyone!!

Today I will show you my 3rd Disney layout. This one was so much fun to do!

03AResized Disney Scrapbook
I found this AMAZING collection by Simple Stories that goes perfectly with Disney-themed layouts. It is the “Say Cheese” collection and is available at Scrapbook.com, Joann, and Michael’s recently started carrying them in their stores. I only used one embellishment (the “Say Cheese” bubble at the top left corner) on this layout, but I will be using more of the collection in future scrapbook pages.

Moreover, I found a pack of large Alphabet letters at Michael’s that were on clearance and knew that they would be perfect for doing titles. The “body” of the letters is clear plastic (refer to photo below). I overlapped them using micro glue dots so that the actual letters were closer together. The “Hello” and “Cute” are wood veneers (also from Michael’s). I decided that I didn’t want the wood look so I tried using a white, silvery Ranger liquid pearls to turn it white. Once it dried, I put a layer of glossy accents to protect it. The wood felt fragile to me so I thought using white paint might deteriorate it.

The absolutely adorable”Mickey Poses” pattern paper is from Joann. The green with white dots paper is available at Michael’s. Joann actually has a pretty good selection of Disney-themed paper, unlike Michael’s which only has 1 or 2. The camera dimensional sticker is by Recollections and comes in a pack of 6 different looking cameras (#308573). The star and heart gemstones can be bought at any craft stores in the sticker section. I believe I got mine at Michael’s a long time ago. The mickey mouse gem sticker (picture above) comes in a pack of 18 of 3 different colors: red, clear, and black.

05 Disney Scrapbook

If you are interested in the “Disneyland 2014″ card (seen on the left side of the layout), you can find more Disney journal cards like it here. The cards in there are amazing and great for pocket page scrapbooking! The album is very large, so set aside a large window of time (1-2 hours) to look at them and download the ones you like. I would like to thank the creator of these Disney journal filler cards, pixiesprite, for making them. I have used many of her Disney cards in this scrapbook for journaling.

Black Friday Spree

So I’ve been a bit of a bad girl and went a little crazy on craft shopping this Thanksgiving/Black Friday. I told myself I wouldn’t spend, but who can resist those unbelievable holiday sales?! My family doesn’t do anything for Thanksgiving, so I was out the door waiting in line Thanksgiving evening with no regrets about missing the big family dinner like so many people do.

I ended up buying FOUR Cricut Cartridges from Joann. They were $20 each and we all know that is a decent price for these products nowadays. I got Type Candy Font, Winter Wonderland, Picturesque, and Elegant Edges. So far I have only explored a bit with Winter Wonderland. This cartridge requires the universal overlay to us, unless you have a Cricut Expression 2. Also, it appears that newly released cartridges do not contain the rewards certificate in them. I did not receive it in my Winter Wonderland box and have learned that Cricut forgot to include them when they sent the cartridges out. I have emailed them about this and am still waiting for a reply. If you did not get your rewards, calling or doing a live chat might be a faster approach than emailing them.

I also ordered two Sizzix die sets (Circles and Scalloped Circles), and a few other things from Joann. I’m still waiting for them to arrive. I also bought adhesive refills from Michaels – Buy one, Get one free, PLUS 30% off coupon. I wished I had gotten more refills when I went the first time because when I went back to get more, they were all gone.

Moreover, Staples had a sale on the Fellowes SATURN 2 95 9.5″ Thermal & Cold Laminator ($160) for $30! My order hasn’t come in yet, so I haven’t been able to play with it, but reviews on it have been positive. Fingers crossed that it doesn’t come damaged or I end up breaking it.

I finally bought a label maker as well. I’ve been putting it off because it is a rather expensive tool to have (thanks to those darn refill tape!). Alas, I decided it was time to get one…for no other apparent reason than wanting one. Best reason to get stuff, right?!  I decided to get the Brother PT-D200MA Label Maker ($40, on sale for $10) at OfficeMax. I’ve only printed one thing off and it worked splendidly. I ordered an adapter for it on Amazon a few days ago and got it today. Now, I can use my label maker without worrying about using a ton of batteries (it requires 6 AAA!).

Now, that the shopping spree period is over (for now) I can now go hide in my room and agonize over how much money I spent and wonder how I can stop myself from spending more money for Christmas.

Thanks for reading,
