It's Tough to be a Scrapbooker!

Well, I tried a new thing today - awhile back I purchased the video set of True Scrap from last year. True Scrap is a set of scrapbook classes that I guess runs as an all day thing originally. Shortly before that happened they offered access to last years videos for a discount price, which I bought. A gal called Shimelle who is a big deal in the scrapbook world offered a class called "Creative Stash Diving." You go to your scrapbook supplies and choose up a kit of things to use. Then you randomly cut up the patterned paper you have chosen and then you just slam together layouts until you run out of stuff. So - here are the three layouts I got done today:

They are all from Bug's Land in California Adventure! Most of the supplies are Bo Bunny, with some Cosmo Cricket mixed in.

Well - I did what I could... DCA Entrance

I really wanted to do a lot more Scrapbooking this weekend of National Scrapbook Day. But I am in Arizona and Cinco De Mayo actually gets celebrated here so I was having board game night and Mexican Food with my roommate and her boyfriend. And then today was spent at the movies. Everyone should go see The Avengers - totally worth it but also kinda long. So this is my only other layout completed this weekend.

The new entrance to Disney's California Adventure - modeled after the Pan Pacific Auditorium - you may find it familiar if you ever saw the 80s cult classic movie Xanadu. I was so excited when the concept drawings came out! I used DCWV Linen Closet paper for everything, even the banner. Various buttons and small embellishments frame the main picture. I also included a Rolodex card (I have a bunch of them - a great find at the thrift store!) for the journaling. There are two, because I covered one a bit and then realized my journaling wouldn't fit - I can be wordy. :P

Hope everyone had a great holiday!

Woo Hoo! National Scrapbook Day! Off With My Head!

and I am actually doing some scrapbooking! I had this idea for the Queen of Hearts on my mind for a while and I finally got it together today! I cut the circles, the swirly card suits, the diamond border, the teapot and the teacups on my Silhouette. I also cut the card suit border but I had to do it by welding the individual symbols together then cutting it. It was kind of a lot of work but I think it turned out ok. :)

I was inspired by a Digital layout on Two Peas in a Bucket. It is called The White Rabbit and is by cindys732003.
