Disney Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Kim then, you are in the right spot!  I am honored to be a part of this blog hop that Shawn and Melissa so graciously are hosting.  If you arrived at my blog first, please after enjoying my project, go to Shawn's site.  I know you will not want to miss any of the amazing projects that all the creative and tallented bloggers have created over the two days.

For this hop, I created a 12x12 scrapbook page layout titled "Here Comes..".  I am working primarily with the colors of yellow, black, white and red.  I did however throw in some blue this time around. 

I used cricut cartridge sweethearts for the font and my trusty hide contour that is on the Gypsy. I really like this feature. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a shadow feature. I cut out one in black and yellow. To mimic a shadow feature, I off set the two and viola! The clear rhinestones gave some additional bling to the title.

I took the straight candy striped ribbon from my stash and made a bow.

I cut three shadow Mickey head icons an inch smaller than the next. This cut is from the cricut cartridge Mickey font.

On the bottom left hand side is a candy stripe journaling tag.

Above is the full 12x12 layout. Doesn't he look dapper sporting his hat? He's just waiting for three photos for the black mat.

Can you guess which Cricut Cartridge was used to make Mickey's hat?  I bet you know how to search for that now.  If not, the secret is on Shawn's site.  I can tell you that from my personal experience that while the Gypsy has a search feature, mycutsearch pulls up more choices.

How cute is this! And you're right, MyCutSearch gives a much better search result than the Gypsy.

great job on your layout Bobbi. Love my cut search too. It's fabulous

meredemaison said...

I love how you're using the xtra large Mickey head for your photo mats! Fun idea! And I totally think that My Cut Search is so much better than the one found in Design Studio, so it's unfortunate that it didn't get improved for the Gypsy. Luckily, with Shawn's site we've got it covered! Thanks for sharing!

Lady Fair said...

Cute layout, especially the Santa hat. The papers are really pretty. I use MyCutSearch all the time, it's saved me both time and money to find images I already own so I don't have to buy a new cartridge. :0) Gotta love that!
TFS and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season as well.

DebbyP said...

Absoutly love your layout. Going to scrap lift it when I scrap our Disney trip at Christmas time a few years ago. TFS
