Disney Autograph Book

We will be going on another Disney Caribbean Cruise, where there is an entire night devoted to Pirates in the Caribbean. You can guess how excited I was to see the Rockabilly Designer Series patterned paper in the new catalogue! The whole package is perfect for all those pictures that I took last trip and all the ones I know I will be taking! The girls love collecting autographs while on the ship, so I made them a new chipboard autograph book to take along. I used my Big Shot with the new Billboard alphabet die, as well as Rockabilly paper, and punched circles from the new Taste of Textiles black paper. Before we go, I'll tie a sharpie to the ring with ribbon so it will be handy when they need it. To make your Billboard letters stand out more, try layering several together to create a chipboard letter look as I've done here.

Big Shot Butterflies

I had big plans to get a lot of stampin/scrappin done over my week off this week, but I found myself sick in bed for pretty much the entire week. I did manage to send off the crochet flowers to those of you who ordered online in the first half of February. Unfortunately, however, this is the only stamping I got done, and it only got done because I need it for a birthday tomorrow! My Big Shot is now officially my favourite toy in my scraproom. I love the new butterfly die and the new texturz plates. For this card, I sponged white ink over the embossed dots to make them stand out even more. I cut the butterflies from the dotted vellum in the new Taste of Textiles package and from Urban Garden designer series patterned paper.
