Disney See Ya Real Soon Layout!

Calling all Disney fans! I am teaching this super fun Disney themed class on Friday, June 14th at 7PM at our Disney Crop. You can register, and just take the class, take the class as a part of our Disney Crop or simply order the kit. If you love it, don't wait to order your kit as I only have 16 available and cannot make more as the product is now retired. The class is $15. Please bring your basic tools - Black journaling pen, White Gel Pen (I will have a few available for sale if you don't have one), Thin 3-d foam tape, scissors, and basic adhesive. If you would like to ink your pages, I used Poppy and Lemon and will have those available for your use. I hope to "See Ya Real Soon!". You can register at:…/tonya-sheridan-independent-close-to-…. Original designs by Ginni Candelaria.

What I absolutely LOVE about this layout?  It can be used to showcase your favorite Disney photos as a 2 page layout or you can use it as a front and back cover.  How perfect would that be?  Either way, I love it!  What are some other fun features?  All of the Mickey's are in Black glitter paper - adding a little sparkle and sass to the layout!  

Notice all the glitter on Mickey?  Super sassy right?

How to create a shaker card element on your scrapbook page or card!

Stay tuned for an updated post.  (6-2-19)

A few very cool things to note about Close To My Heart's shaker cards tools/materials:

1.  The foam and acetate circles!  These are so easy to use!  The outer rim of the foam disk is adhered to the card.  The remaining 3-d foam tape is a bonus and can be used on this project as well as others!  Because it is the same height as the rim, I used the extra foam tape to level my rocket ships with the rims.  The acetate circle, which goes on top of the foam circle to seal the shaker pieces inside, has a cloudy film on it to protect the acetate from becoming scratched before you use it.  Genius right?

2.  Our exclusively designed Thin Cuts allows you to cut the circle the same size as the shaker element, as well as a stitched rim to go on top of the acetate - this is a creative way to cover up the 3-d foam tape so that it doesn't show through on your card and the stitched design is trending so "in" right now!  In addition, there are two dies - one to cut star confetti and one to cut heart confetti - that can enhance the shaker card even more!  Just cut away with a color of your choice, or one that matches your project and you have custom confetti!

3.  LOOSE Sequins!  So much fun!  You can fill your window with the sequins but you can also add a Mini-Glue dot to the back and embellish other areas of your card with the sequins - I so love when a product is multi-purpose and a little of the Loose Sequins goes a long way!

Hugs! Chelsea Garden style.

This morning I wanted to share with you a card that I made quite awhile ago, and I just realized that I never posted it. I cannot take credit for the design as this was inspired by another consultant - I just can't remember her name.  The card is quite easy to create with our Block Thin Cut Alphabet set.  

To begin with, cut the background paper to the desired size - here I used White Daisy.  Using washi tape, tape down the letter dies where you would like them to be positioned - this way they will not move when being running through the Cuttlebug.  Run the dies through the machine and then remove the dies.  Cut the same size piece of paper and place under the one with the dies taped to it.  Run both through the machine and now you have a clean copy with the letters cut out.  You can use the letters on another project.

To make the words to "pop" from the patterned paper behind, adhere the "hugs" paper with Thin 3-d Foam tape to the patterned paper.  Embellish as desired.

Here is the awesome Thin Cut set that I used:  (Z3386) Thin Cut Block Alphabet Set 
Supplies used:
(X6027) White Daisy cs, (retired) Chelsea Gardens paper, (Z3314 )Black and White Dots, (X254) Value Pack cards and envelopes, (Z2060 )3-d Thin Foam Tape.

These cards are available as a set of 5 - which are all pre-cut for you - in my In All Sassiness Designs shop.  You can click here to purchase them.

"Out the door dinosaur!"

What is about dinos that capture the heart of children?  I remember when my children were in this stage and EVERYTHING was dinos!  And now, my nephews are in the same stage!  Love it!  And I can't help but love Close To My Heart's adorable take on dinos in their Something Fierce paper suite.  Whimsical and filled with brought vibrant colors that make the heart happy!  Not to mention the cuteness of each and every dino!  I am a little late to the game playing with this suite as it is now retired but I just cannot get enough.  The good thing is although it is indeed retired, many of the elements are still available while supplies last so you can jump of the the cuteness opportunity!  Click here to shop Something Fierce!

Here is a layout that I created to celebrate my nephews love of everything Dino!  I printed my photos in black and white which really made them pop!  To see a larger image of the layout, simply click the photo and it will open in a larger window.
