MGM blue! *DCWV Marquee

If you have ever scrapbooked Disney photos, you know the struggle of finding blue paper. I don't mean teal or aqua because every collection has those, but actual BLUE. Think Sorcerers hat blue. Well, I have recently been going back and trying to scrap the rest of my first trip with my guys to DisneyWorld and I found these photos. It was the year of the celebration that was the reason for the hat at MGM studios and I am so glad I have photos from a few trips since it was recently removed.

There is a new collection by DCWV called the Marquee stack that is totally the right blue and will even work for all of those Frozen photos you have because it has light blue and lavender as well. Check it out HERE. 

 I used the background paper and the blue glittered dot paper from that stack, along with lots of other DCWV papers and vellum from other stacks. If you haven't already notice, I love the gold foil vellum stacks. This chevron vellum is from the 6x6 Foiled Vellum stack. I also punched some stars from gold foil on white paper in the Luxe Stack.  And I found the little mickey punched from cardstock in one of my drawers. I don't even have that punch. It must be from like 10 years ago. LOL!

Gamers and the Sept Scraptastic Club kits

There are alot of gamers in my house and I am not one of them, because you know it would eat into my scrapping time, right???  So, today I want to share a couple of layouts I made with this month's Scraptastic Club Centerfield kit, Add on Kit, Stamp Set, and Cut file, along with the Skinny Love Cut file and Lunch Notes Stamp Set.

First this is my smallest gamer, Noel. She just loves the games on my tablet where you get to splat the mice. I cut the background paper apart and then reattached it on white cardstock leaving out some of the rows that were white so I could journal and add my title.

For the word Gamer in the title, I used the awesome 8 bit looking alpha stamps in the Centerfield stamp set. I totally loved the cut file from the other kit this month (Skinny Love kit) because its little kitty faces, so I used a piece of that behind Noel's photo with a piece of vellum from my stash

For my second page I used older photos of my husband when we were staying at the Pop Century Resort at DisneyWorld. The exclusive papers and vellum die cuts in this kit were made for photos of Space Invaders. 

I totally loved the pac man  screen looking cut file in this kit so I made it a bit smaller and used it in the upper right of my layout.  

 The title is just die cut from black cardstock scraps, but the little sideways blocky arrows are actually stamped and embossed with black embossing enamel on black cardstock and cut out so they are glossy in person. The lines for the journaling are a great stamp in the Lunch Notes Stamp Set this month. And of course the cute little ghosts and alien are exclusive vellum die cuts that are in this kit.

Pinterest Monday inspiration from Scraptastic

Every monday we have Pinterest inspiration on the Scraptastic Club blog but right now the site is undergoing a big upgrade so I will share it with you here on my blog. This is the image that Rory and I chose to use.

 I just love the mix of colors and patterns in the quilt of the Pinterest image and I thought it would be a perfect way to use up some of my kit stash, so I chose the scraps from the July Summertime Rolls kit and Add on kit. I created circles by cutting long triangles and then attaching them in the center to a small white cardstock circle punch so that I could machine stitch in a spiral to hold them all together before attaching these circle elements to my page
