As soon as I saw this die, I envisioned those adorable balloons filled with colorful confetti and glitter! It took a bit of time and patience to turn this Pooh Bear die into a “shaker” piece but soooo worth it! The frame and insert would be adorable in a child’s room decorated with primary colors, but it could be made in any number of color combinations to match any décor and be given as a special gift for a new parent. How about the Pooh Bear outline cut from a faded butter yellow wearing a light sage top?
From a galaxy not-so-far away! Whether it's to celebrate a birthday, Star Wars Day (May 4th), or just to say "I love you", this card trio is perfect for the ultimate Star Wars fan! I love using fun and interesting fonts for my card sentiments. I used several different ones for this set. A quick google search can result in thousands of free options to upload into your own Word program. Simply print, cut, and add your own sentiments to your cards and projects! Oh how I adore this R2 cutting die! He's made from four layers
Thanks to Morag, OWNER at Bramble Fox, for creating this memory Dex box and card for us! She used some of her own exclusive (and soooo cute) acrylic pieces mixed with items by Scraps & Inks Crafts for a memorable project that showcases favorite photos from a family trip to Walt Disney World. She covered her box with papers in classic black and white patterns- a perfect way to showcase her cards and photos without distracting from them. Memory Dex boxes and cards like this are a great way to have a grouping of favorite photos or memorable
I was happy to be asked to help celebrate the launch of the new website-Disney Creative Co.-by making a scrapbook layout. When I received the product that I’d be working with, I was intrigued to use the dies. Until a couple weeks ago, I didn’t own a manual die cutting machine. A neighbor handed hers down to me, so this is the first time I’ve used manual dies for a layout! I immediately thought to make this parade watching page in my Disney 2016 album. Believe it or not, this parade was the only time we saw Mickey Mouse
We just love these pocket pages that Tanya created to share her thoughts about her upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! Her method of documenting it so well is truly inspiring! Clean, crisp lines and Tanya’s choice of bright and primary colors really make the elements pop against the white background. Tanya cut the castle from grey cardstock using a metal cutting die from Scraps & Ink Crafts and backed it with ruby red glittered paper for a bit of sparkle. The chipboard yellow heart and quote is a lovely sentiment! An adorable Minnie Mouse cupcake
I love to have a stash of cards handy in case I need one at the last minute and know I won’t have time to stop at the store. This card was super easy and could work for just about anyone’s birthday! The Mickey and Minnie balloons die cut worked great to cut this red mylar paper I had on hand. I knew I needed a bold paper so that it didn’t get lost visually with that bright polka-dot background paper. I think I accomplished this rather well! I swapped out the trailing balloon “strings” with black cardstock
Unfortunately, this grassy area where we I took these photos near the Morocco Pavilion in EPCOT no longer exists. That’s okay, however, because it didn’t really offer much shade for the girls on this super-HOT day! The title word “Sun” was cut from a gold satin finish glitter sheet because I didn’t want it to be too sparkly and wanted it to match other embellishments I was planning on using. I hand-drew the title and created a cut file from it so I could use it in layers. For the actual sun on my page, I cut and
Since I am not a fan of my own handwriting (ironic, since I am a published lettering artist), one of the things I like to do is plan my journaling ahead of time and then PRINT it directly onto my page before I start adding other elements or photos. I use a wide format printer, so this is easy once you get the hang of it. When I use this method, I try to use a casual “handwriting” font so that it appears less rigid or “printed”. I add an even more personal touch by underlining my journaling with
This background paper was from a large Disney paper pad. Sometimes I find it difficult to use papers that have pre-printed border designs like the waves and Donald image at the bottom of this paper. I tend to want to make my own borders with lots of layers, so I usually cut off these pre-printed ones. This bottom border, however, worked well to balance out my layered banner at the top of the page. And it was just too cute to cut off in the first place! The banner pieces were added to the baker’s twine with a
It was so fun to see Daisy sporting this colorful outfit for Donald’s Dino Bash in Animal Kingdom, although we weren't quite sure what a “Dino Bash” actually is! Sounds messy, but whatever. I just LOVE these transparent letters! There was no “green” in the collection, so I simply layered blue and yellow- love the effect! I’m sure there was an easier way to get these letters attached to the page although they do not have any kind of adhesive. So, I decided to stitch them down! First, I lightly tacked them down with washi tape, stitched over
I wanted to do something really special with these photos of my nieces from our trip with them to Walt Disney World. I changed the photos to sepia and colorized the bows on their mouse ears so that the photos really stand out. This layered accent piece was fun to make. The polka-dot heart sticker was perfect to coordinate with the bows on the girls’ mouse ears. I also added the black and white baker’s twine to the balloons for a more dimensional element to the cluster. I chose to use vellum on my page layered between
A little bit of ‘jungle’, a little bit of ‘whimsy’, and a whole lot of good, watery fun! That’s what I was trying to convey through this page about our trip down Kali River Rapids in Disney’s Animal Kingdom with our family/friends. I used lots of layers made with patterned paper, a variety of die cut leaves, flower stickers and real wood accents to create my three main clusters. That wood “slice” is just so adorable so knew I had to use it! It matches the woodgrain patterned paper on the left side of the page perfectly. A
There are so many fantastic pineapple embellishments out there on the market right now that it was tempting to use them everywhere on my page, but I chose to use the large pineapple and the tiny pink one on the little circle piece. Now I need to scrap more tropical pages so I can use more pineapple embellishments! I bought this tassel years ago because it was just so colorful, but I had no idea what I would use it for! It was an “ah-ha” moment when I needed to add something to my tag, was rummaging around
For this “Dapper” page, I immediately visualized the silhouette-cut title in my mind, so it was fairly straightforward when designing it for my electronic cutter. I knew I just had to use this stripe patterned paper in the title to match the stripes in the “Dapper Dan's” outfits. To further match the “Dans”, I wanted to use something that mimicked their bow ties. I had these felt bows in my stash from years ago that would work perfectly. I suppose that’s the benefit of never getting rid of craft supplies- you always find something that matches! My banner had the
This page uses lots of colors and patterns to celebrate our “Ultimate” day at Disney! I chose to use these colorful stickers representing each of the four different Walt Disney World theme parks as my starting point. I decided to create a background that was equally as colorful by using lots of different patterns. This seemed like it might be a challenge, so I knew I needed to stay in a color “family”, such as brights, pastels, or the jewel tones I ended up using to keep it from being too visually overwhelming. I used three different letter
I really wanted to create a sense of being “out of this world” so I knew this page about Space Mountain had to have lots of stars and planets as my embellishments. The 8-point starbursts were created with a lever punch. The thin-line circles with stars as well as the layers of the planets are cut using metal dies. My favorite element has most definitely got to be the big Space Mountain image that I cut using my electronic cutter. The shape is just so iconic and instantly recognizable, so I really wanted to use it on my page
I think my Star Wars friends will appreciate this page! I wanted to convey the fact that the AT-AT in Hollywood Studios is really BIG, so I designed this cut file to fill the entire page and work as my background. It cut without any issues, but I would imagine that if I were to try to cut it much smaller, my cutting machine would struggle and end up tearing my paper. So, when designing it, I knew I had to “go big or go home”! Find it HERE in our library! I used thin strips of red patterned
We’re loving this fun and vibrant page that Niki created for us using fantastic dies cuts from Scraps & Ink Crafts. Niki used three large Mickey head cutting dies to create distinct “quadrants” for her other elements to cluster in, each one bursting with magical touches! Her top left Mickey showcases a variety of fun elements including a bright blue paperclip Mickey and a glittery sequin padded appliqué- both by Scraps & Ink Crafts. Niki went beyond the basic die cut silhouette of a suitcase-toting Mickey that she used here and created layers for her travel bug...er, mouse.
Morag has completely blown us away with this adorable page! The overall design with the classic Disney colors on a white background is perfect, but just LOOK at those amazing acrylic embellishments by Bramble Fox! We love how she used both white and black stitching on her large paper elements in the background. This really gives each piece more definition. Those embellishments tho! Besides using a variety of fun acrylic pieces, Morag also tucked a lovely lux pearl Mickey paper clip behind the top of her photo for a bit of softness and femininity. What true princess can resist
Hi everyone! When creating this page, I wanted to keep the focus on this gorgeous photo with the bright pink flowers in the foreground. I felt like I needed to keep the number of colors minimal using only blues pulled from the blue skies and pinks from the flowers. The wood-grain paper along the top and bottom reminds me of walking along the boardwalk and serves as a visual stopping point to redirect the eye back to the photo with the vertically running slats. After using my electronic cutter (Silhouette Cameo) to cut the title, I wanted it
It is a known, scientific fact that food tastes even better when it is Mickey shaped. I wanted it to look as if sprinkles were falling down my layout. I started with drops of shimmery colorful mist, stamped tiny stars, and then added those adorable Mickey treats die cuts. The teeny Mickeys that get punched from the cup and Dole Whip dies make the perfect sprinkles so be sure to save those! I used Scraps & Ink Crafts’ Mickey tag die to make a little journaling tag. By the way, the Mickey & Minnie cupcake paperclips
What’s not to love about this bright, happy page by Michelle? We love how she created the cluster in the center with lots of fun layers and shapes without overwhelming her photo. This style- using a wide variety of papers and embellishments in one large cluster- might be overwhelming with multiple photos because the eye would not know where to rest, but by using one singular photo that is not visually busy, it creates the perfect balance and keeps the focus on the photo. Michelle does an excellent job highlighting the photo even further by using the cork letters
We are just so in love with this beautiful layout by Youngmi!! Could the photos of her adorable niece be any cuter?! A light and airy page with gentle colors creates a magical, ethereal effect to showcase her photos of a perfect little princess. The glitter “Dream” title piece and delicate white and vellum snowflake dies by Scrap & Ink Crafts makes us swoon! We’re thankful to Youngmi for sharing such a lovely, “dreamy” page.
Bright and fun, this page perfectly captures a visit to Chef Mickey’s by using a variety of our favorite products by Scraps & Ink Crafts and Bramble Fox. We just LOVE Niki’s style and ability to combine different manufacturers and products into one cohesive look! By cutting out the center of her page in this large Mickey shape, Niki creates a perfect framed area to tuck her adorable photo in with some fun layered elements. So many fun details and embellishments are included on this page! The acrylic frame and view-master reel are perfect for this photo
