Bang that Beat!

This Disney layout is dedicated to some of the great Disneyland Street Performers. The Trashcan Trio is a group of percussionists who play in Tomorrowland at Disneyland. They keep a foot stomping, toe tapping beat going using just trashcans, buckets and trashcan lids. As you can tell, they're a fun group!

Again, I used Scrap Within Reach " Paper Boy" paper for this layout, and sketch #11 from Sketch Savvy. It was a one pager, but you know I can't do just one page for my Disney photos or I will never get them finished! So I turned it into a two-pager again.

I decided to put part of the title in a trashcan. The template for the trashcan is at the end of this blog post. No, I still can't make an SVG file, so if you make one, please let me know and I will link it here.

The trashcan is cut from some really old Black Tie Basic Grey paper that I had.

To add to the industrial look, I added some Tim Holtz Ideaology washers and some large pewter brads. The teal trim is Creative Imaginations.

Here is the template. Please let me know if you convert any of my templates into SVG files so I can link to them and we can share them with others.

Awhile back I got some free Cosmo Cricket Christmas paper and thought I would do a fun, simple layout. This is a picture of us all at Disney's California Adventure a few years ago.

I used one of Susan's sketches from Sketch Savvy, and cut the title, flourish, and snowflakes with my Cricut.

I inked the edges of all the paper with Ranger Distress Ink Old Paper, and then added some Rock Candy Distress Stickles for a little clear glitter affect.

And for the additional embellishments, I used some old metal ornament charms I have had forever, and the velvet scalloped ribbon from Cosmo Cricket as well.

Not Today Zurg!

I think I have a hundred photos from Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters at Disneyland. We ride it just about every time we're there and since we are AP holders, that is quite often. So, the next few blog entries you may be inundated with Buzz pictures okay?

This layout is based on Sketch #22 from Sketch Savvy. I made it into a two-pager, but I just felt like the sketch went so well with these papers.

I had fun with this paper; it is a line from Scrap Within Reach called "Paper Boy." The funky shapes are an exclusive QuicKutz die from Hobby Lobby, and the stars are QK too.

I made my own "unscalloped border" for this layout, and blew up one of the Quickutz shapes so I could make a large journaling box. I've linked those below. I would have made them SVG's for those of you with SCAL, but I just got it and can't figure out how to do that just yet. Maybe soon though!

Yay! Another Buzz layout done!
