Check out this Disney scrapbook cover. This diamond fold book is supposed to hold CDs for my husband….if I ever actually burn them for him! In the meantime the cover looks really awesome. I used a Minnie font with the pazzle to create this cool looking title. I love having that option, but using the pazzle and cricut make pages take even longer…but the payoff’s worth it!!!
Paper Piecing Disney characters is as easy as digging through your kid’s coloring books! Until there is a pixar cricut cartridge, I’ll settle for making my own using coloring pages as a template.
PS: These are also part of a Disney swap I am participating in. If you have never joined a swap find some friends or a message board and look around for links about “swapping.” People swap everything from page elements (photo mats & titles) to entire pages. Over the next week I’ll be posting more of my submissions to a Disney scrapbook swap in whic I’m participating.
I’m sitting alone in the basement tonight trying to finish up some Disney paper piecing items for a Disney swap that I am involved in (more on that tomorrow). It’s what’s been keeping me from the blog. Look how great they turned out!!!
These were specifically for a “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” attraction page.
PS: I’m rocking out to David Cook…it’s what’s keeping me going when I’m on the 16th teacup. 🙂
Altered Canvas -Pooh Bear 1
Altered Canvas - Pooh Bear 2
Altered Canvas - Pooh Bear 3
Who doesn’t love this sweet little cuddly bear?!
I decorated these three canvas panels to use as a Winnie the Pooh wall hanging…or altered art.
I plan to attach them together by a wide ribbon to hang on the wall.
These canvases required very little in the way of supplies. In fact, the canvases I found sitting in a drawer in my craft space already!
You’ll also need:
Sandylion Winnie the Pooh Embellishments
Sandylion Winnie the Pooh Paper
Martha Stewart Glue
Super Sticky Tape
Instead of painting the canvases I used strips cut from the background paper to collage a border because it was (a) less messy than paint and (b) certain the colors would match.
I inked the edges of the background paper so they didn’t get lost when I adhered them to the canvas.
I glued one edge of the strips to the canvas and then used a super sticky tape on the edges to give it a nicely wrapped look.
I printed my own transparencies with quotes I got from the web.
I used three different embellishment sheets, one for each panel, but didn’t try to do too much with them. They have good variety and I didn’t want to have to create scenes by rearranging the embellishment packs.
This simple page was easy and quick to make. It was also a great addition to a Honeymoon album my friends and I put together as a wedding gift.
Let’s face it…who has time to make their own Honeymoon Scrapbook? It certainly takes a back seat to children, work, and maintaining the home!!! Most people I know would love to just get their photos of their kids in an album. We decided to make it easy on this bride by creating some pre-made pages for her. Together then three of us were to complete 12 two-page spreads, making it easy to get those photos right into an album.
This page only needed 5 sheets of paper: 2 blue for the background, 1 blue for the bottom border, 1 blue (could also be scrap paper) for the diamond border on the bottom, 1 white.
Additional items: adhesive, diamond die cut (I used sizzix, but you could always make your own template), decorative scissor, yellow ink, and castle embellishment.
I put the castle on a white square and inked it with yellow. The white vertical squares are 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches to accommodate pictures. The White diamond on the right hand side is for journaling and was adhered behind the page, but not on top to leave room to add a photo. The bottom blue stripes were four inches.
Easy to make, fun to enjoy!
