12X12 mickey's HALLOWEEN party map layout

I decided to make a 12X12 layout of the park map for our Mickey's Halloween Party evening.

If you would like to see more of our Vacation to California please CLICK HERE.


 I am using a 12X12 black card stock from Michela's its one of their hot buy picks from the company called Craft Smith.
 Instead of wasting a large sheet of scrapbook paper I cut two 2 inch strips and adhered them down starting at the bottom and working my way up to the top.
 The map layed out is bigger then 12X12 so I cut off the side panel on each side and magicaly got just the map part and it was perfectly 12X12.
 I used a ruler and an exacto knife to help align and place my letters.
Finished Layout.

 The white sticker letters are from Lily bee design's and the sparkly orange Thickers are from American Crafts and are called Wisecrack.
 Close up.
 Pressing them down and also going to show that this chucky glitter does not come off.
How awsome is that.

Also I gently placed the Halloween letters down first to get the placements and then added the mickey's and party and it was easier to get placement this way.

Happy Summer Flip Flop Card

I must be on a summer kick because I decided to bring out my Stamps of Life flipflops2stamp set and search Pinterest and I found this card I also dug threw my Stampin UP inks and found some fun colors to go with some Stamps of Life card stock that I got in their card kits a while back.

 I have stamped and die cut the flip flops and flowers using the Stamps of Life flipflops2stamp club set.
 The ink I used is from Stampin UP ink Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Cameo Coral, and Sweet Sugarplum.

The card stock is from older Stamps of Life card kits.

I added a clear gem from my stash to the center of the flowers.
 I am using this inexpensive Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby card scorer and I love it.

The card stock is Stampin UP Tip Top Taupe.
 I also decided on the Gingham embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
 The peice is just shy of 3 inches by 4 inches.

I used Stampin UPs fringe scissors to add some fun texture to the edge of this make shift beach towel.
 Stampin Dimensionals for the wing.

I used regular dry adhesive to adhere the pattern paper and card stock to the base of the card.

I added a mat of card stock to each card in the same color at the toe part of the flip flops.
Finished card #1

 I used the same ink for each card to stamp the sentiments.
 Instead of throwing away my extra pattern paper I used it to add some fun to the inside of my card.
 Card #2
 Card #3
Card #4
If it said enjoy on the front I added relax on the back and if it said relax on the front I added enjoy on the back.

Happy Summer Hello Watermelon Card

I have made this card before and love the way it turns out and it can be geared towards any occasion or person just by changing out the sentiment on the front or inside.

Here is the photo of the card I orginally found and used what I had on hand to recreate.

 I am cutting some water color paper just shy of 4 inches.
And also just shy over 5 inches.

This way my black mat behind will be 1/8 of an inch showing all around.
 I am using the older style Tim Holtz ink blending tool and it seemed to work just fine.

Lemon lime twist for the top.
 Cucumber Crush right above that leaving just a smidge of the Lemon Lime Twist showing
 Using a small section on the Lemon Lime Twist pad I inked more and added a small layer on top to make it darker.
 I lightly added some Strawberry Slush ink below the Lemon Lime Twist ink leaveing barely any white showing and keeping it light.
 I added Watermelon Wonder ink below that makeing sure to leave some light areas at the top and make it a gradiant color.
 So pretty.

Cucumber Crush, Strawberry Slush, Watermelon Wonder are Retired Stampin Up inks.

Lemon Lime Twist will retire June 2019.
 I used Heavy Weight Black card stock from Hobby Lobby to cut out a Hello from Stamps of Life and some hearts from a Retired Owl Builder Punch.
 Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere the accents to the card.
 A little pokey tool to help align my up side down hearts to look like seeds.
 Trying to decide which card base to use.

I went with Lemon Lime Twist card stock because that was the lightest inking that matched the card stock.

I went heavyier on the other colors.
Finished card, I love how smooth and blended it looks in real life, almost looks like it was water colored.

 I used Stamps of Life watermelon2stamp stamp set for the inside and out side of the card.

And yes shh I did cut my stamps so I could ink in three colors.

And yes they did not scream.

Happy Summer Popsicle Card

I decided to search Summer Cards on Pinterest and found this one that used a Cricut Cut along with some fun textures put into the card, but the post had no info on size or supplies so I dug into my own craft room.

I found the image from the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge on page 45 and test cut to find the right size I needed for my card base.

I choose 4 inches. And the only layer I cut out was the main one, not the shadow.

I cut of the stick after it cut from my machine.
I stamped in Versa Fine Black Onyx ink useing the Paper Smooches Incognito stamp set to get the fun smiley face.

 I broke a popsicle stick to make it shorter and used Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere it and then added some Stampin UP foam dimensionals around that.
 I found a leaf punch and turned it into popsicle drips by rounding the pointed corner.
 I found some very old $1 spot ribbon and tied some simple knots.

And I will use glue dots to attach them to the popsicle sticks.
Finished card

 I used the same ink and stamped So Cool from My Pink Stamper Punny-Licious stamp set.


 I added some gems from my stash to give them fun cheeks and a white gel pen to add highlights.

My pattern paper and card stock is from Stamps of Life, from my old stashes of her card kits.
I used Stampin UP inks to stamp the inside and back of the card, the colors were Summer Sun, Pretty in Pink, and Brocade Blue.

I did some selective inking to get a two colored stamp set.
More pattern paper on the inside to match the out side.

I also used Heavy Weight White card stock to line the inside of the card, I get that from Hobby Lobby on sale.
The stamp set on the inside and back of the card is also a Stamps of Life set called watermelon2stamp.

Our December Story 2015, Day 18

I decided I wanted to scrapbook and went to the Our December Story album and looked threw it and found this page that would be easy to finish.

This is Day 18 of 2015

 I cut up an elf, eek.

It did not take long.
 I used two different alphas to create the tittle and also added a clear sticker.

I found a card stock present that I glued down and wrote YFS on the tag.

These were Pivias gifts.
 I decided to add word sticker and some image sticker too these two photos.

One of Pivia playing with her gifts and one of Lexis gifts.
 A Santa came to their daycare which was pretty awsome.
 Again a couple of puffy stickers added to this card.

Legos were a big hit this year for both girls and Lexi was very happy to get a set.

 I added the card stock elf and a favorite puffy sticker to the extra stocking next to Polka Dot Stripe.
 My favorite thing to do with 4X6 cards is to turn them into 3X4 cards with this die from Project Life by Becky Higgins.
A see threw sticker and a card stock cut out added to this photo.
 I deconstructed a 3D sticker that I got from Micheal's.

I just made it flatter to add to the card.

It was easy because they were older stickers.
 I took a 3X4 and made it into a filler card.

I used a chip board tree and a Santa's Helper sticker along with the deconstructed present.
 I added a silver strip of card stock to the bottom just to give it some bling and interest.
All done.
