Sea World July 2011

Made a Sea World Layout using items from Close to My Heart. The stamps and the chipboard letters are from CTMH. The Sea World paper is from Wootens Scrapbook Store. I love Sea World! I tried to use a lot of pictures from the show since I always take them of Shamu and not of my family that are squished in the stands. However I think it works with a picture of them enjoying the show and then pictures of the show.

Pooh Layout - Girly

I have a lot of old stickers to use but I still managed to use the Cricut for the Honey Pot title.

Goofy Layout

Made with the Disneyland Scrap-pad and the Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge.

 We got Disneyland Passes this summer, so I've got enough cool Disney pics to last a lifetime.

Matthew at the new Star Tours 3D. The ride line was 160 min long without a fast past. He's holding the special R2D2 popcorn bucket. I put the new Disney map with it because apparently they are collectors ones.

 Mickey Mouse from the Mickey cartridges.
 they had this scrapbook pack at Disneyland for $24. It has some really nice pages and lots of stickers that I'll probably give to Ashley
What's in the paper pack. They also have a 2011 paper pack. I will get that next time.

Pop Up Cards ---- Everyday Pop Up Cards

I got the Everyday Pop Up Cards cartridge the other day and I wanted to try it out. The book isn't very good at explaining how to do the cards so I had to go to youtube and I found a great blogger who really takes her time to help everyone out including with using the gypsy! So please check her out and a big thank you to her for showing me how to make my first pop up card which was the bird card. Here's a link to her video:

My Surgery went well. Now I'm just recovering at home. Playing farmville and taking my meds :). I think I will complete some projects although they may turn out funny when I'm on these strong pain medications. I'm enjoying looking at all the blogs and at all the great projects :)

My Mom started a Scrapbook Blog

Check it out here:

She makes beautiful pages!

I haven't been up to scrapbooking the last few days, but I plan on doing some maybe this afternoon. I need some inspiration and a new cricut mat. :)

Monkey Business

I felt weird not using my cricut on this layout! I have all these stickers and embellishments from a clearance sale at Michaels, so I wanted to use them up. This is Ashley climbing Matt's bunk bed. She was doing this long before she could walk. She's such a climber!

Bath Time

Duck and Title made with the cart Sugar and Spice. The bubbles from Everyday Paper dolls.

All this Stuff

Ashley has so many stuffed animals, it's insane. This is a picture I took of her last year buried in them. One thing is for sure she certainly loves all of them.

I used the cricut cartridges Create A Critter and the font is Tear Drop. The flowers are from Accent Essentials. The paper is the baby stack from DCWV.

Pop-dotted the lettering to stand up on the page. Can you find Ashley?


This page is another 2010 page to add to my book. I took Matt and my dad to see Avatar on the IMAX back in Jan. I was only able to snap one picture outside the movie theater with my iPhone. It was an epic movie and the first time my dad had been to a 3D movie in many many years and he'd never seen the IMAX. He was like "wow". ;)

I used SCAL to cut the Avatar title. The font from the movie is a Window's default font called "Papyrus". The rest of the stickers are just something I had in my collection. The brads are from

I found Nemo

I got the new Best of Pixar Cartridge and also Disney's Classics! I don't have a page for them yet, but I wanted to try out making a couple Nemo's from the cartridge. These are cut at 4 inches. The sizing is by the height, not the width when you cut from the cartridge. They were quick and easy to make. I think it took more time deciding which colors to use.

2010 Layouts - Happy New Years (ashley)

I did the same layout as I did for Matt except I changed the toasting glasses to a champagne bottle from Simply Charmed. I didn't see it until after I did the layout for Matt. I didn't add the smiley face like it has in Simply Charmed. The 2010 font is Opposites Attract.

2010 Layouts - Pirate Dinner Adventure Girl

This is the same layout as the one in the previous post only done with a "girly pink pirate" twist. The paper in the background is the same, except for the accent papers which are Rusty Pickle. The stickers are also Rusty Pickle. Same font and same cartridge for the cut outs.

2010 Layouts -- Pirates Dinner Adventure Boy

Happy New Year! 

This layout is for when we went to the Pirates Dinner Adventure in Buena Park. I used Paper Dolls and SCAL. I downloaded a font called Pieces of Eight. You can download it at this link:
