Misc Walt Disney World Layouts

Here are several layouts that I've completed over the last few months. I still have so many to do! I forgot to take some of the pictures until they were already placed in an album, so they look a little dull. There is one layout that I did of Sanibel Island, so it is not at Disney.

Disney World Haunted Mansion Layout

I had fun with this layout. I used the Artiste cartridge for the tombstones and used my gypsy to weld them together to make the bottom border. All other cuts are from the Happy Hauntings cartridge.

Master Crafter Challenge

I entered the Master Crafter Challenge over at The contest was only available to the first 100 people who signed up. We were given misc items from different sponsors (we only had to pay for shipping) and had to come up with something using all the items. We could add our own, but were supposed to use the items they gave us in our project. Starting tonight at midnight, everyone will link their items and voting will begin. The voting will last for a week and whoever gets the most votes will win and get great prizes!! They will also be named "Master Crafter" I can't wait to see what everyone came up with. Please head on over and vote!  Vote here ( I am #2) scroll down

This is what I came up with. At the end of this post is a picture of what I received in my box and the sponsors who donated items.

Here is a picture of the items I received:

I used the scissor mouse to cut my paper for my tag - I used a sharpie to color some of my rhinstones "pink" - I dyed the cotton bag with re-inkers - I did color one of the buttons, but I ended up using two buttons that matched and attached them to my bag.

Thanks to the following for their donations:
DCWV - RockStar mat stack
Queen & Co - rhinestones
State Line Bag - cotton/muslin bag
Pink By Design - 'adore' stamp and misc buttons

Nephews Birthday Cards

I made my nephews their birthday cards using the Mickey Font cartridge. They always celebrate their "family" birthdays together since the birthdays are only a few days apart and they live pretty far from everyone. I better get these in the mail since we aren't able to be there this year. All paper is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for looking. :)

Birthday Card and a scrapbook layout...

Well, I posted my card and layout and then blogger changed my interface and after I published it, it was on some blog post that was brand new, so I don't know what happened, but here I go again. Instead of writing everything again, I will just post the pics and then if there are any questions, I will answer them.

Well, I finally was able to get into my craft room and set it up. I actually re-organized the room three times and now I think I am happy with it. For a while anyway.  ;)
I made a card and now I am working on a layout. I will post pics soon.  I hope to be able to craft more now that I am settled in. :)  Feels great to get back to crafting!

Well, I have moved across country and I hope to get my craft room together pretty soon so I can start creating again. It's been a long time and will feel good to get into my boxes and unpack things. Everything will seem like its new again. :)

50th Birthday!

Here are a few items I made for a 50th birthday. I had fun, but putting the M&M's in bags one by one was very time consuming. Well, they weren't really M&M's, they were Reeses Pieces. I sandwiched peppermint patties in between two scallop circles. I used some Stampendous stamps for the "party" and "50" that I adhered to the circles. I used Life's A Party and Sweet treats to make the party favor boxes and put Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and some of the peppermint patties in the favor boxes.

Home Sweet Home ATC Swap

I signed up for a swap over at the cricut MB. It's been such a long time since I've done a swap. An ATC is an "Artist Trading Card" and the base needs to be 3 1/2" x 2 1/2".

I used an Inkadinkadoo stamp set for the birds and birdhouse. I stamped the birdhouse twice. Once on blue paper and once on brown textured paper then cut them out and added the brown trim and hole. The birds were stamped on brown paper with buttercream stazon and then I used an I-rock gem used on the eyes. The branch is from the Create A Critter cartridge. The "Home Tweet Home" is from a Technique Tuesday stamp set. I used the D'vine Swirls cuttlebug folder for the background. Cardstock is from Stampin' Up!; Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, So Saffron and Brocade Blue.

Here is the back of the ATC with all my info. I used the same stamp set to stamp the theme on it, but had to change the Tweet to Sweet by handwriting an "S". I hope they like them. I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with.

Old Fashioned Festival Layout

Every year at the end of July, our town holds an "Old Fashioned Festival" that runs Thursday through Sunday. On Saturday night, they put on a spectacular firework show. Here is a layout featuring this years display.

I used the Summer Vacation cricut cartridge for the ferris wheel and the kiddie ride. I punched out stars from various punch manufacturers and I made the background paper with stamps. The words for the title were written on a ticket punch from EK Success

I made these tickets, so if you look close they all have the same number because it was a stamp. Lol. I then took a small punch and clipped out little half circles and made dots for the perforations.

I punched out stars and then glued a shiny background to the back of the paper and then glued a smaller star in the middle to make my borders.
