3 Castles

Last year Disney World added 2 new castles to the Magic Kingdom and I finally got a chance to go down and see them this July. I used 3 different cameras to take these photos as well. The instagram picture I took of Prince Eric's Castle fit perfectly into the Maggie Holmes frame and from there I pulled photos from Cinderella and Prince Adam's castles. I had a scrap of my favorite paper sitting on my table and pulled that in as well. I then started arranging and adding bits and pieces like the chalkboard banner piece and a frame with a piece of pp and a flair to the top a bit of journaling over the pp and a title.

Overlay Card

I started this card using the chevron overlay that was in the kit. My wonderful cat decided he wanted to help trim it down to size and he doesn't use the trimmer well. So I pulled out a piece from my overlay stash and created the card base. The only thing to keep in mind when using any overlay to create a card is anything you put on the front will show through to the back. I trimmed my paper piece down to 3x4.25 and the red border is a sticker from the kit. I didn't cover it on the otherside so it's just a white scallop border. I hand cut the heart from my favorite paper in the kit and added the you.  For the area on the inside to write I cut up the baggie the embellishments came in so lots of nice journaling lines. I added another piece to the back and a label sticker to write "created by Ann"  a quick and fun card for my anniversary coming up next month.

This Place

Welcome to September! This month's kit is my favorite. I loved the colors and papers. I knew I wanted to journal on the chalkboard paper so I trimmed the paper down so I'd have several journaling boxes and some borders for the month. I added one of the borders to the top to balance out the heaviness of the bottom of the layout. I added the title with some foam from the craft store and new dies from Lawn Fawn.  I added the arrow flair from the Dear Lizzy pack and a couple stickers from the Echo Park sheet.
