I am finally back from Walt Disney World, and while Kristin did an awesome job filling in for me while I was away, I truly did miss writing the blog and getting to reveal our weekly challenges with all of you! It really is the best part of my job because I get to spend time going over each of the Design Team’s fantastic projects to spot the fun things they’ve done that I can’t wait to write about. Their attention to detail always amazes me!

It is certainly no different with this month’s “Colors of Magic” color challenge! The team really outdid themselves finding inspiration in this monstrously-good color palette of greens and blues carefully selected by Kristin. I just know you’ll love playing along too!

Disney Creative Co. April “Colors of Magic” Challenge- MONSTERS!:

“Muppets3D” by Emily Adams:

I was floored when I first saw Emily’s page! Although she chose not to use any white space and filled her page instead with lots of patterns and embellishments (a girl after my own heart), everything works so beautifully together and doesn’t distract from the fantastic photos.

Emily echoed the gold in her title by using a shiny gold sequin padded applique in the opposite corner. The gold is also carried throughout the page by the tiny gold triangles in her patterned paper. She used a cutting die to create her green film strips tucked behind the applique and layered washi.

“I’ve Got My Eye On You!” by Heather Ribble:

Heather embraced both the color palette AND the theme! I’m in love with her clever title and tone on tone polka-dot patterned papers (give me all the polka-dots!)

Heather added small turquoise Facets for a bit of sparkle! (I’ll take sparkles with my polka-dots please!)

Light purple glitter washi tape and a ticket strip created with a cutting die are great horizontal elements to draw your eye straight to the middle of the page and Heather’s fun photos!

“Buzz” by Lacey Robin:

So many things to LOVE about Lacey’s amazing page! Her watercolor background is just stunning and Buzz Lightyear himself bursting through the paper to take on the evil Emperor Zurg is officially the most awesome thing ever!

The bright green acrylic Mickey head adds another pop of color and is a nod to the Main Mouse himself.

“Hulks” by Jackie Ashton:

Okay, so I’m green with envy that Jackie has been to Disneyland Paris! (((Le Sigh))) I also LOVE the ultra monotone green of Jackie’s page!  How else would you scrapbook this larger-than-life character?

Like Lacey, Jackie also used a Frosted Acrylic Mouse paper clip to add a fun Mickey element and emerald green Facets for sparkle.

“Monster Party” by Vicki Von Richter:

Vicki also embraced the Monsters theme for her page. I really don’t know what I love more about Vicki’s details- that phenomenal stenciled and inked background, or the paper-pieced characters! The image below shows a closeup of her impressive Mike and Sully!

Vicki used a cute little icecream cabochon from the Treats Bits & Pieces set because what’s a Monsters Party without icecream?

“Laugh Floor” by Kristin Fougeron:

So many Monsters, so little time! Kristin created this super-cute page with lots of fun Monsters embellishments to match her color palette. I love how she used the polka-dot paper across the top, and then used hand-cut polka dots cascading down to draw the eye to her character die cuts and washi strips. She also used a purple Frosted Acrylic Paper Clip and Mouse Shaker.

The Facets and Monsters Washi match perfectly and add a bit of sparkle and whimsy to the entire page.

“4 Hours & 39 Minutes” by Michelle Sinclair:

Michelle’s page is simply adorable! I love the way she uses color and art-themed elements to convey the enjoyment and atmosphere of the park during EPCOT’s Art Festival!

Michelle used several circles from the Mouse Circles Cutting Die Set as well as a cute purple mouse head from the Spring Flatback Bits & Pieces Set.

“EPCOT Title Page” by Natalie Strand:

Natalie also chose to use the colors in the palette to help document a day in EPCOT!

She created this colorful title block layered on top of strips of green Flower & Garden washi and light blue glitter Frozen Washi.
