And so my Sassy and Magical Disney Layout series begins...

How many of you have taken, or will be taking, a trip to Disney?  And how many hundreds, or in my case, thousands, of pictures do you have that you want to scrapbook?  For my family, I looked forward to, and started planning my wish list before my children were even born so when it came time for our Magical week at Disney, we embraced every moment.  And in my case, I captured many of those moments in photos.  Now I have the task, and joy, of scrapbooking those precious moments and I invite you to join me along this journey!  I will be offering a minimum of 2, and at times more, Disney themed layouts a month for the next year.  Some of these will be offered as a workshop, and others as kits for purchase.  I will be posting the layouts here on my blog and in my In All Sassiness Scrapbooking Facebook group (if you would like to join this private group for my VIP customers, e-mail me at: inallsassiness@gmail.com and I will add you) with all of the details, and they will be listed for sale or purchase in my In All Sassiness shop.  I hope you will join along!  For every 12 layouts that you purchase from my Sassy & Magical Disney Series you may choose a free My Legacy Album to store your beautiful layouts in.

So with that being said, here is the first layout...to see a larger image of the layout, click on the photo and it will open in a larger window.

The layout was designed by Ginni Candelaria, but I of course, altered it to fit my photos and style.  It is created with the Beautiful Friendship (how perfect for Mickey and Minnie right?) paper suite.  I love how it is not traditional Disney colors as many of my photos are not in reds, yellows, and blacks and also how if someone wanted to use the layout for non-Disney all they would have to do is take off the Mickey and Minnie heads.

I only have 20 of these kits left as I had several pre-orders so if you love it as I do, you will want to grab yours quick! You can purchase them in my In All Sassiness shop for $15.00. All pieces, with the exception of the photo mats - so you can choose your sizes - have been pre-cut (whoosh--that took forever) and included in your kit you will also find detailed instructions and a colored photo. If you live local, will be attending Scrap Pink next month, or are attending the New Jersey Expo and would like to for-go the shipping cost, simply select pick-up at check out.

Astronaut Block Frame

It has been awhile since I have posted, so I have quite a lot to catch up and share!  This little guy has been at the top of my list to share! He is just so cute!  This is one of the create and take projects for my summer expos (Chantilly, VA back in June and Edison, NJ in August).  The frame is made from a wooden block that has been cut to size, pre-sanded and pre-painted.  We then added the spacey background from the Stargazer paper suite (now retired) and a zip strip.  Next, we added some very cool Americana sand with (Z679) Liquid Glass to create a grounding point for the little astronaut.  The astronaut is cut from the (Z4157) Stargazer Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cut combo set and then stamped with black archival ink.  Once stamped, we colored him with our Shin Han markers and attached him to the block with (Z2060) 3-d foam tape.  The sentiment of the circle was printed and cut from the Cricut and also attached with 3-d foam tape.  And then there was just the finishing touch of adding blue dots from the (Z4143) Stargazer Dots as accents.  I love, love, loved this project.  Simple and easy, so so stinkin' cute!

If you would like to create your own, we will be teaching it at the Edison, NJ Scrapbook Expo August 24th and 25th, or you can purchase the block kit in my In All Sassiness Designs shop.  The Stargazer stamp set/thin cut combo, the Liquid Glass and the Stargazer Dots can all be found on my website at: www.tonyasheridan.ctmh.com.

Family Portrait Layout with alligators!

A fun twist on a neutral toned layout.  This layout was created with the Chelsea Gardens paper suite.  The colors are shades of greys, whites and blacks and are great for more formal photographs and also for allowing colors to pop!  In my case, my photos were darker than I would have liked but the brightness and the neutral shades of the papers brightened the photos.  My children were in shades of blacks and whites which really made the Christmas decorations pop as well!  

I loved the inclusion of the flip flaps as they allowed the layout to include additional photos and not have a cluttered feel.  I used the Cricut for the sub-titles "no live alligators allowed" as well as my journaling. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite tools.  If you look very closely, you will see that the title "The Jefferson Hotel" was Cricut cut as well.  So much fun!

To see any of details more closely, simply click on the picture and it will open larger in a new window.
Full Spread with all flip flaps closed.

Left page with 3 stacked flip flaps.  These flip flaps are stacked directly on top of one another.  
A chipboard heart is used to create a tab on the top flip flap.

Right page with 2 layered flip flaps.  This page uses two horizontal flip flaps.  They are not stacked as on the left side but one is above the other.  Make sure to leave a little bit of an edge so they don't snag on another.  Again, a chipboard heart is used for the tabs.

Here is the layout shown without pictures with the flip flaps closed.

Here is the same layout with the layouts flip flaps open.

Although the Chelsea Gardens suite is now retired, this kit is available in my In All Sassiness Designs Shop for $12.00.  The kit includes all of the pre-cut pieces needed to create the layout, a sheet of chipboard compliments, flip flaps, page protectors, bulk ribbon and embellishments, detailed instructions and a color photo.  For those who are local, select "pick up" to avoid shipping charges.

May the Force Be With You...

Or, May the "Mouse Be With You"!  Either title works, and both are included for this fun Disney/Star Wars layout!  The layout was designed by Ginni Candelaria who did an absolutely fabulous job!  I added a few tweaks, prepped and created my version.  I have to say, this is the most fun I have had creating in a very long time!  I MEAN REALLY...combining Star Wars, Disney, Close To My Heart and my kids...there is nothing that I love more!

And, because I love this layout so much, I had to share my completed layout as well!

subtitle details (created on the Cricut)

This layout is available in limited supply, in a kit form in my In All Sassiness Designs Shop for $20.00.  The kit includes the needed pre-cut pieces, all of the character pieces, a sheet of silver compliments, a pack of Grey Gems, detailed instructions, a color photo and lots of fun! For my customers who are local, or attending the Chantilly Scrapbook Expo and would like to pick them up,  make sure to select "pick-up" to avoid shipping cost.  If you like the distressing look, I used sponge daubers, Almond, Espresso, Pewter, Black and Sapphire inks which can be purchased on my CTMH site at: www.tonyasheridan.ctmh.com.

Why "Hello, cupcake"

Today I wanted to share a layout I created call Hello Cupcake.  To date, it is still one of my very favorites!  Such a fun title, for such an adorable layout!  Perfect for a new little one, spring pictures or of course anything with cupcakes!  With shades of Thistle, White Daisy and Pear (retired) the layout calls out for any celebration.  The accents/embellishments are a combination of silver foil and vellum which together absolutely pop!  

To see the layout closer up, simply click the picture and it will open in a new window.

Now Showing....Movie Night

Summer screams out for movies...blockbusters, love stories, family movies...the entire cinema is at our fingertips...whether that be at home on a rainy day, at a drive-in on a clear summer night, or at the theaters on a super hot day.  Who can't help but love a night at the movies right?  Close To My Heart's newest stamp set (D1788) Movie Night is introduced at just the perfect time!  And as soon as I saw it, I couldn't help partner it with our retiring Stargazer paper...to create a 5 star layout! (click on the photo to see a larger image)

Special Features:  When creating the layout, I couldn't help but incorporate the cute little verses, or bullet points, that are included in the stamp set...I filled in the film slide randomly with these phrases... and then had to add the little popcorn pieces because really, popcorn and movies come hand in hand right?

The title was created in Circut Design Space with our exclusive Artiste' cartridge.  I welded the two words together to create a more unique look and then because I had to add some bling, I cut the title out of Black Glitter Paper.  The film protector and the "stop", "pause" and "play" icons were all stamped to add additional fun.

Additional stamping was used to create the pennant titles.

And that is it!  The layout is now ready to just add any personal details, and of course, pictures!

For my personal layout, I added a title that I created with a combination of Art Philosophy and the Star Wars - The Force is With Us cartridges.  I used a lot of patience (some of it wasn't pretty I must add), Canary and Black cardstock.  We are anxiously awaiting Solo's arrival at the theaters next weekend and I guarantee pictures will be taken!

If you would like to purchase a kit for this layout, you may do so in my In All Sassiness Designs shop.  It is available for $15.00 by itself or $30.00 with the stamp set.

Supplies used:

Cricut Cuts:
banners - Artiste' (retired); "Movie Night" Artiste' (retired) - ; filmstrip - Artbooking; 
tag for Solo title - Art Philosophy (retired)
Star Wars label - Star Wars: The Force Is With Us

Space Disney layout

Disney and Star Wars lovers be on alert!  You are going to fall in love with this beautiful layout designed by the very talented, master of Disney artwork, Ginni Candelaria!  I tweaked the layout just a little with colors to work better with my pictures and will be teaching it locally in Broadway/Timberville on Friday, May 25th from 5:30 - 6:30PM at the Timberville Church of the Brethren.   You can join me in class, or purchase the kit and create it on your own.  The kit is $20 and includes Cricut pre-cut pieces, pre-cut elements (with the exception of the mats in case you want to alter the sizes), a pack of Stargazer dots and a pack of Stargazer elements.  You may register for the class, or order a kit in my In All Sassiness Shop.  Make sure to select "pickup" if you are local to avoid being charged for shipping.

I LOVE the elements and embellishments in orbit around Mickey's ears!  How Star Wars-ly sassy!

The Star Wars lover in me just can't get enough of this Stargazer paper suite!  Why, oh why, did I have to wait until it retired to fall in love with it???  (Well, crazy, busy life could explain that!)  Anyway, stay tuned for even more fun Star Wars creations from this blogger!
