We just took our Dream Vacation on board the Disney Dream Cruise Ship! This photo was taken once we boarded the ship. We went with Mike's parents and our three boys. To say we had a great time was an understatement!
I wanted to make a special layout that I could display for a while in a 12x12 frame. I started with some paper from the Disney Cruise kit I purchased on board and my Gypsy.
I used my Gypsy to set up my shot. On Layer 2, I put a rectangle from George and Basic Shapes on my mat at 10x8 to represent the photo. This makes placing the title and embellishments easier (not to mention I can get the right size).
On Layer 1, I place my title and embellishments. I usually change my mind a little as I create....as you can see here I initially had Dream Vacation on the bottom of the page.
I welded the anchor borders (from Mickey and Friends) together so they would string across the entire page.
I then copy the images onto a separate Layer and arrange them on the mat in sections so I can place the paper colors where I need them. I cut out two of the borders because I planned on layering them with pop dots. The one Mickey Head was not doing much for me, so on a whim I cut out two more.
I cut out the anchors in silver cardstock ~ they are hard to see in this photo.
I used one Mickey head for the word Disney and tucked the other two heads behind the photo. I put the title on the top. I used Disney font and Pooh font for my title. I used my negative paper to line up my words "Dream Vacation" on my page.
I tucked the second anchor border behind the one Mickey head and wrapped twine around both borders. The Mickey in the lower left corner was printed on the photo.
I have some additional projects to share with you.
My Peace, Love and Mickey Hat:
I used vinyl to mask off where I painted my hat. I adhered crystals on once the paint dried.
My Pirate Mickey T-Shirts:
I welded mickey ears to the skull and cross bones and cut out a template from freezer paper. I ironed the freezer paper onto the shirts and painted with black fabric paint.
Here are my oldest boys and my in-laws at the Pirate Party.
My Autograph Pillow Cases:
I took these pillow cases on our cruise with us. The wonderful cast members will take your items and have them autographed for you. They deliver them to your room the last evening of the cruise. I had our Hostess Suzana autograph them too. She was stunned that I asked. After asking me for the third time if I was sure, she grabbed the pen and signed before I could change my mind! It was sweet! We really liked Suzana!!
You can see how I made these pillow cases HERE.
I also made luggage tags and used my YourStory to laminate them. I was inspired by Sherri. Ours are plain compared to Sherri's, but my family refused anything blingier!!!
I recently was asked to review My Memories Suite scrapbook software and once I got the hang of it I have surprised myself at how much fun I am having!!
