Hi Queen & Co friends! Today I’m sharing a couple cards featuring the Foam Front cards and glitter washi. First up is a card using the Solo Butterfly Card Kit.
I used silver glitter washi for the butterfly background. To do this, I simply placed the butterfly cutout over my card base, then I traced around the inside of the butterfly with a pencil. I used the pencil line as a guide for laying down strips of washi.
I filled the butterfly with Donuts, Pops and Diamond toppings. To compliment the silver glitter washi, I outlined the butterfly with silver glitter glue. I finished off the card with some handmade roses die-cut from the new 6” x 6” paper pads.
Hi Everyone! Jana Eubank here. Lately, I have been focusing on getting some older photos scrapbooked, in rotation with my newer photos. I try to switch back and forth ... one new, one old, one new, one old ... so that I can get caught up on our older memories, while still recording the details of our latest happenings.
Today I have two pages for you, both of them feature the NEW Foam Front dies.
This first page features newer photos of my husband and I when we went to the Magic Kingdom recently to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
I wanted to challenge myself to use the NEW Foam Front Mickey die in a creative way on this page and decided to use it as a journaling block.
I cut the shape using red solid cardstock and then backed it with a yellow solid paper. I outlined the mouse ears with a journaling pen and then sprinkled several toppings on the inside.
I combined together red and blue Sequin Sprinkles, white Lollies, red Candy Sprinkles, Neutral (black) Pearlies, blue donuts, as well as blue and black Fimo Fun Toppings for a festive look!
I added journaling strips to the top of the foam front shape and then placed my title work below.
I also created a fun cluster of embellishments at the top of the journaling block.
I added some festive Magic Ribbon around our photos and then finished it off with the "Love" flair from the Magic Flair set. Perfect for our anniversary, don't you think?!
For this second page, I decided to work with some photos from 2010 that I have been ignoring for far too long. They are of my daughter and her friends at a Cast Party after they performed in their Elementary's school play of Aladdin.
For this card, I used the Foam Front Stars Die to build a background for my page. I love the way it came together!
First, I cut blue and green cardstock with the Foam Front Stars die, and then used my trimmer to trim the die cuts into 4 1/4" squares. Next, I embossed them with various embossing folders from my stash and then adhered them to a block of white cardstock, adding Yellow Skinny Glitter Tape along the seams for a touch of sparkle.
I added a strip of photos, tied with blue Sparkle String, and then got to work on the title and journaling block.
I used a tag card that I die cut on my Silhouette machine, layered on top of a piece of patterned paper. Green rivets decorate the tab of the card, and Bitty Beads add texture to the green chipboard letters I used as part of the title. At the top, I layered together more glitter tapes (Green Dot Glitter Tape and Yellow Check Glitter Tape).
For more color and texture, I sprinkled some yellow Button Bouquet II buttons around the page, along with the yellow stars from the Fimo Fun Toppings. They feel like confetti sprinkled on the page and definitely add a party feel! Yay! "Celebrate Good Times, Come On! ... It's a Celebration!"
Hello Queen and Company friends! It's Mary Ann Jenkins here today with two layouts to share, both with a fun Disney theme!
My first layout is of my son and Mickey Mouse, and even though he wasn't too sure about Mickey, I still wanted to capture that special moment.
To start my layout, I cut strips of paper from the Around the Park 12x12 Mat Stack, and glued them on to my cardstock. To really give it a Disney feel, I added the gloves from the Magic Shaker set, that I covered in white cardstock, and then added the "magic" word epoxy icon across top of both of them.
Continuing on with the Disney theme, I have a layout about taking my son to the theater to see the Cars movie.
I again started with strips of paper from the Around the Park 12x12 Mat Stack, and centered my photo between them. I added the filmstrip shakers from the Say Cheese Shaker Set, they go so well with the movie theme! I filled the shakers with gray and white Fimo Fun Stars mixed with the pearl color Pearlies.
The cute Fast Pass tickets, and Official License are from the Around the Park Mat Stack too, they made the perfect embellishments!
Morning! It's Jana Eubanks today! Sometimes it is hard to catch the excitement of a birthday celebration on a scrapbook page. Not any more! With the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set you can practically taste the sprinkles that is decorating the inside of this cake embellishment!
One of my favorite things to do with titles is to replace the dot in the letter "i" with something decorative. Here I added a tiny blue petite posie.
There was an empty spot at the top of my page above the title. I simply filled it in with a strip of orange Simply Stripes Mat Stack paper, decorating the end with two green rivets.
Green twine and orange sparkle string dress up my photos, while a sprinkling of petite posies and pinwheels add a party feel to the right side of the page.
My favorite part of this page looks good enough to eat! Check out the slice of cake I created with the Birthday Shaker Shapes Set!
I cut the cake shape from blue and brown cardstock. I used scissors to trim out the "inside" of the cake ... leaving just the frosting ... and then adhered that frosting layer on top of the brown "chocolate" cake layer. I used a couple of FLUFFY FLOWERS (Name?) to the top of the cake for decoration.
Inside the cake are yellow, blue, and orange candy sprinkles toppings that look good enough to eat!
A few more yellow pinwheels and petite posies scattered around the cake add a fun feel.
One of our favorite places to go on vacation, like a lot of families, is Disneyland. The first time my daughter met the characters was completely magical. At the time she was shy around most adults, so it amazed us when she wasn't afraid or shy when meeting her favorite characters.
At the top of the page, I used the Magic Shaker Kit to create Mickey and Minnie mouse symbols. I cut them from black glitter cardstock and then backed them with red and yellow Delightful Dots papers. I filled the inside of the shapes with white Lollies, red and yellow buttons, red diamond topping, and black fimo fun stars. I added a red ribbon to the top of Minnie's ears and adorned the bottom of the iconic shapes with blue flowers and a magic flair button.
The title was cut on my electronic die cutting machien from the Simple Stripes yellow paper. I added more flair and blue flowers to the title, as well. A few yellow pinwheels feel like pixie dust!
I cut the tickets from the Around the Park Mat Stack and tied them with Red Sparkle String. To the right of the tickets is a shaker Mickey glove. More pinwheels, flair, and flowers add lots of dimension and fun to this part of the page, as well.
Across the bottom of the page the photos rest on strips of patterned papers from the Around the Park Mat Stack, combined with some Magical Tape. Red and black rivets adorn each end of these decorative paper strips.
Creating a darling Disney scrapbook page is something Queen and Company designer Stacy Cohen does well! On this fabulous page she cut several pieces of paper from our new magic line into giant over-sized banners as a background to her layout. She matted each banner with black cardstock to help each piece standout and added lots of our other Magic embellishments next to her "Goofy" photos to complete this page! We especially love her mouse-head shaped journaling spot that balances this layout out!
Hi!! My name is Stacia Brandt. I’m the mother of 2
children, Alyson, age 10 and Rilen, age 8 months. I am married to my
husband, Keith, for a little over a year now. Currently, I’m a
SAHM. I love being home with my children and watching them growing.
We also have a Pitbull named Roxy. I am a graduate of Penn State
University with my Bachelor's in Business/Marketing.
I’ve been scrapbooking since 2002 while I was pregnant with
my daughter. I had previously been an avid cross-stitcher. While
pregnant, I had a lot of pain in my wrists and fingers and couldn’t hold a
needle….But, I found that I could scrapbook. This was back when there was
nothing available but paper and stickers; and I immediately fell in love with
the hobby. Here I am, 11 years later, still scrapping away. I'm
very thankful that I have a husband who is supportive of my addiction and will
often give me his opinions on what I have done.
I’ve been a member of 5 design teams and have recently
started my own blog challenge. I’ve been published in Scrapbook News and
Review and will have a layout featured in the November/December issue of
Creating Keepsakes. I also have ventured into the world of Etsy by
opening my own shop and having my own scrapbook service website.
I just recently returned from Disney and now everytime I see anything Disney related it makes me smile even more than usual! Ginger Williams created this stunning Minnie Mouse birthday and travel set using the Magic collection. Love this!
