Personal Layout Challenge #29

Wow can I slow time down?? I thought June was crazy busy but for some reason this month seems even busier if that is possible.  I am falling behind on finding time to get into my craft room.  So my goal of designing a layout a week is a little off course.  So I am about two days behind schedule and my not make this weeks goal but….. who knows 😉

Magical ~ Disney Layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comThis is another layout using Magical paper pack.  This one is also from my 2014 Close to My Heart Convention.  I am so excited to have completed these.  I actually used flip flaps to add more photos but since they are part of the new Annual Inspiration I cannot share them yet…..

Happy Crafting!

Everything ABC’s Blog Hop ~ Letter M

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter “M”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “M” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from DARLYS RECKER’S Blog then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of this post.

I suspect we will have a lot of MAGICAL participants in this hop.  Close to My Heart came out with a really fun paper pack named MAGICAL which will work well for anyone who has been to Disney!!  However this paper pack can really be used for anything as it is just fun with bright primary colors (check back on my blog over the next weekend).  I have been putting off doing my Disneyland photos and finally have the motivation to complete them.  I have to admit I totally lifted this layout from Pinterest and you can see my inspiration here.  This layout also keeps me on track with my personal layout challenge and brings me to layout #24.

Disneyland ~ Magical Layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this layout I used the following:

Now it is time to hop on over to LAUREN MOORE’S BLOG and see what she has created for you today.

I learned so much and was inspired by all the many talented consultants out there.  But one of the best things was getting to see the new Annual Inspirations Idea Book for  2014-2015.  There are so many awesome new products that I will not be able to cover them all.  I will give you a taste of what to come with the following highlights.

  • 9 new paper packs including a Halloween one which I am super excited about.  I really love then all!
  • Workshops on the go – 7 scrapbook and 2 cards
  • Tons of new stamp sets
  • Artfully Sent – the new Cricut cartridge which focus is card making but can do so much more!
  • 5 new Picture My Life kits which can be used for so much more so stayed tune.
  • 3 new My Crush albums
  • Quick kits which are so super – these kits will simplify your card making by making all the cuts for you all you need to do is stamp and assemble.  Now if you to do more than the kit has you can order more of the pre-cut paper and cards.
  • Awesome new Home Decor items
  • New styles of the base and bling
  • New embellishments – stars, hearts, washi, and ribbon just to name a few.
