This weeks challenge from CAS-ual Fridays was to create a card based on a song.
I first thought of the Grease song “You’re the One that I Want” and I came up with the card design. Then I was getting ready to add my sentiment and I found the “You’re the one for me” and to me they mean the same thing. So here is my card:
Those cute dogs are from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Burbs, the heart is from Critters Ever After, and greeting is from Clear to See. I used C3 and C5 for the grey dogs and E11 and E13 for the brown one. I used Y06 for the collar tag, R29 and B29 for the collars, and R22 for the nose. Thanks for looking and happy crafting! ❤ Ann
I had started this project back in October of last year. Then the holidays and then the move got in the way. Today I finally got the title page done!. Just a couple of things before I start. I will not be using any Disney stickers or such in the book. I will very rarely use Disney colors for things. I’m using the Clementine Project Life kit. I’m a huge Disney fan, but I’m very much over the black, red, yellow stuff. And that block font that I never see used at Disney except on scrapbook stuff. Yeah you won’t see that either.
What you will see. 16 trips to Disney mainly over 4 page spreads. (One trip is like 10 pages and it was only 4 days) You’ll see a lot of my thoughts and memories and a few photos like the icons will overlap.
Without further ado: The title page
The first photo slot just holds a 4×6 Clementine filler card with a castle cut from the Silhouette (castle_C00176_20387) with the patterned paper kit for the Clementine kit. I then cut a shadow in kraft, because nothing is complete without kraft cardstock. The 2nd 4×6 photo slot is the entry sign you see when entering Disney property. The middle row is the Florida welcome center sign, a no bad dancing sign (the safety warning from every attraction), a journaling card covering why I’m doing this, a random Animal Kingdom photo, and the bottom two slots. The left is David and I on our first trip together in 2005 (at AK) and the right is our most recent trip in 2010 (at AKL).
There are 3 2-page spreads before I get to covering the first trip. Hopefully I can do a spread a week and someday get the project actually finished.
It feels so good to be crafting again and to have space for my outlet. The moving company is coming to pick up all the empty boxes today and then I’ll finish cleaning up my space and share photos. I couldn’t be happier with my space so far and can’t wait to finish it. I really believe a happy space helps. At least for me.
Today’s card: With Easter coming I needed a couple cards to send to family and this is the first. I made this card by cutting eggs out of white cardstock from my Silhouette and then covering them in washi tape I got from Target ($4 for 4 rolls! They’re in the office supply section). I made two of the purple dotted one and added pop dots so one would stand out. You could easily open one up and have a chick pocking out for a different effect. I then stamped with greeting with Lawn Fawn’s Jessie’s ABCs in Jenni Bowlin ink. A quick and easy card you could send to anyone. You could even get kids involved with white eggs and markers. I’m sure a grandparent would love to receive artwork.
Thanks for visiting and happy crafting. ❤ Ann
I made a card and I was inspired by watching the youtube video Kelly Marie did for the Intro into Critter Ever After. She took the unicorn and added the little heart and made a My Little Pony. I loved those as a kid. So I colored my own and made my own background paper with washi tape. (that blue is actually purple) I cut the cloud out myself by first sketching it with pencil, stamping the greeting, and then cutting and erasing the pencil marks.
Thanks for looking and happy crafting! ❤ Ann
This is my entry into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge I used a black base and added a yellow piece of pp from Crate Paper’s new Pretty Party collection I stamped and colored in the castle from Lawn Fawn’s Critters Ever After and used Copics B00 B02 Y06 and C03 on it. I added a tiny bit of stickles to the windows and then stamped the greeting with Jenni Bowlin’s Fountain Pen.
Thanks for looking and happy crafting! ❤ Ann
This week my husband and I moved into our California apartment. We’ve been living in corporate hosing for the last month and I’m ready to finally get into our own space. I’m starting to really miss my Silhouette, that circle punch I didn’t think I’d need, and having a place to store things.
I had hopes of crafting more and posting all month through this transition, but the time change has kicked my butt. As did that 24 hours at Disneyland. I am feeling refreshed and renewed to get started again. Even to get started putting Project Life together . So I’d to apologize for my lack of posts, but know that come April 2, my weekly cards will be moving to Monday, I will be back with a great new simple card to share. I have a collection of new Lawn Fawn stamps and some new paper to play with. I even have a print order and I hope to share some layouts in the next couple of weeks as well. And once I figure out how to set up my scrap space I’ll be sharing that as well. I only have a 5ftx3ft space to work in now. So I have to make the best use of it.
Because no post is a post without a picture. I took this with my new 35mm lens at the Redwood Forest. Not the right lens to take shots of tall trees, but I didn’t know where we were going and that was the lens on the camera and I went with it. If you’re interested in more pictures from our first weeks in California they can be found in an album here.
For this challenge I used Lawn Fawn all over the place. I used the castle and greeting from Critters Ever After. (I cut the “May all your dreams come true” to put it on the different tag) I used Tiny Tinny Backdrops for the top of the card and the patterned paper it’s Lawn Fawn, and that great hemp twine it’s Lawn Fawn as well! The tags are My Mind’s Eye that I bought some time ago.
Thanks for looking! ❤ Ann
