More Disney Pages

Here are some more Disney pages from my WDW book.  Papers and embellishments are things from my stash that I have collected over the years, many are EK Success.  The last layout of Animal Kingdom photos uses Magic Moments papers by CTMH.  (You can click on a layout to enlarge and see more detail.)

Creative Memories Cutting System

I can’t say that I use this a lot but I would not want to be without it.  I simply don’t use a lot of circles or ovals, however when I need them this is the perfect tool.  There are other shapes that you can purchase to go with the system.  I primarily use the circles.  The template allows you to place over a photo and find the correct size you want to crop.  The color of the blades correspond with the colored lines on the template.  Tips for use: make sure you remove the template before cutting so you don’t cut through it.  I find it easiest to use if I am standing up.

My Walt Disney World Album is Complete!!

We just made it back from Disneyland last weekend and before we left I was determined to finish my book from our last vacation to Walt Disney World in (gulp) 2005!  Alas, it is finished and here they are.  Be on the lookout for new layouts from our recent trip to Disneyland!

I found it was easiest and quickest for this project to use a set of coordinating papers for most of the pages.  You can see how I did that below.  The paper is a retired CTMH paper pack.

Floral Delights Card

img_8344

Stamping techniques used:
(1) 2-Step Stamping: when you use overlap stamped images using multiple stamps to create one finished image.  I used 3 different stamps for the flower on this card.
(2) Second Generation Stamping: First ink your stamp, then stamp on a piece of scrap paper (this will remove some of the ink), then stamp on your desired paper.  This will give your image a softer look/color.  I did this for the pink part of the flower above.  I used the same color of ink but used the second generation stamping technique for the solid part of the flower, then I stamped the second image on top of it using regular stamping.

All supplies used are by CTMH: D1189 Floral Delights stamp set, D1212 Playful Flourishes stamp set, paper from Creative Basics Boom-Di-Ada Collection
