"Star Wars" layout

Last time we went to Orlando (in 2011) we didn't get a chance to see Disney's Hollywood Studios. This year we did and Ethan is at the age where Star Wars is popular...along with the fact his friends loves Star Wars and the new movie had just come out. So, when we came here he was very excited with all the Star Wars attractions and stuff.
This layout came together rather quickly. I am seriously trying to use up my pretty paper and break into all my kits lying around. Some of the pattern paper comes from the Studio Calico Galileo scrapbook kit and Carolina Moon scrapbook kit from last year.
I used a couple different washi tape (the gold stars & plus design) to add layers to the page. The card with the journaling is new Studio Calico Homespun (March 2016): Adventure printable cards. I swear this layout took only about an hour in total to create. =)

"J&A" layout

It's been awhile since I've created a traditional 12x12 layout. I'm currently working on my Orlando 2016 mini album so as I was picking photos I saw these ones when we met Jasmine and Aladdin in "Morocco" at Epcot. We waited at least 30 minutes to meet them. But it was so worth it. Ethan was astonished as to how they acted and spoke so much like the characters in the movie.
I also got my new Studio Calico pattern builder stamp set (TOTALLY LOVE) and stamped using my Hero Arts mint-to-green ombre ink pad as a background. I LOVE geometric design so totally loving the "plus sign" design. I added gold washi tape on the right side as well as cut up old acetate for the bottom embellishment.
The castle is actually a digital stamp brush from In A Creative Bubble's new collection, Magic. It's actually ombre from teal to dark teal just to give it a contrast. Printed and cut it up to add as an embellishment. And there you have it. =)

'Coffee Break' layout

It's been A LONG TIME since I've posted anything on this blog. I have been debating whether to delete it completely or continue to use it as a creative space to post my craft projects. And I'm also debating whether to switch my blog to a different site or continue with Blogger. For now I'm going to keep it and will slowly update and overhaul the look. =)

Here's the most recent 12x12 layout I have made. It's been FOUR months since I have done a complete full page.

In this layout, I used a lot of old elements from past Studio Calico kits as well as my brief subscription to A Beautiful Mess - Messy box. Using up my wood veneer embellishments (which I'm hoarding). As for the little coffee cup, I just cut up a Starbucks gift card I had received to add as a finishing touch to my little addiction to Starbucks. Seriously. The whole 8 days we were in Orlando we had to find a Starbucks cafe to get our caffeine fix as well as find the special collection mugs.

 I'm also still trying to catch up on my 2015 Project Life album (I am caught up with 2016). And I have my December Daily 2015 to complete as well as start my Orlando 2016 mini album. I'm being ambitious because I would like to complete all these projects by end of February. We'll see.
