Solid Color Paper Challenge Disney Style

Today's challenge at Frosted Designs is to use only solid colored paper.  The easiest layout for me to create was a Disney layout!

I saw a similar layout and adapted it.  I used Mickey Font for the words and Mickey head.  I used George for the stars.

I used my Gypsy to lay the letters out the way I wanted them, then used the negative piece as a template to glue the letters down.

This was one of the very first tricks I learned with my Gypsy and I use it all the time!

I used an acrylic stamp to create a tag for journalin.  I positioned the stamp on the paper so the top of the tag image was not on my tag. 
Since the plain paper needed a little something, I grabbed my ribbon stash and buttons!

I also needed to put extra pictures on this layout, so I made a flip up (self-coined term).  I take cardstock twice as long as the photos, fold it in half like a card, glue it to the page and cover the remaining 3 sides with photos or journaling.  I put a little ribbon tab on one corner for easy lifting.

I glued only the sides and bottom of the red paper on the bottom of the page to make a pocket.  This way I can add additional pictures, maps and other memorabilia.  I have 4 trips in the last 4 years to scrapbook and I am a picture taker!!!
Here is my finished layout (minus the photos) once again. I added some buttons and ribbon to break up the solid colors. 

Join us at Frosted Designs with your own projects using solid colored paper!!
