Disney Pixar - Link Up Party

The same ladies who started the Disney Pixar blog hops have gone a step further so more people can be involved and are having a blog "link up party".  The is the first ever Disney Pixar Link Up Party!

This is YOUR chance to share your favorite Disney Pixar scrapbook layout, card, banner, decorations, party favors and more!  Just post your project and then link it up to the appropriate site by October 3rd, 2011.  Post as many projects as you would like, and include a link back to this post to tell others about the Link Up Party.

Scrapbook Layouts ~ Link Up HERE at Crafty Chics Blog
Cards ~ Link Up HERE at Disney Dreamer Designs
All other projects ~ Link Up HERE at Love to Crop
Here are a couple of my favorite Disney layouts . . .
We can never get enough of the Crystal Palace, with Pooh, Piglet, Tigger & Eeyore!  I made this layout following our January 2011 trip, using the Pooh cartridge and Storybook.  I used lots of SU Crystal Effects on the title, hoping to emphasize the Crystal Palace, but it's a bit hard to see in the photos.

This isn't the greatest layout, but I suppose one of my favorites because of the memories :)  On the Disney cruise, the evening shows are absolutely fantastic!  I wanted a page to reflect a few of the zillion pictures I took of the characters on stage at each show, so making lots of cuts to the pictures, I placed them inside the word DISNEY on what I intended to look like a stage.    I used Lyrical Letters and welded the words "Walt" and "Theater", used Mickey Font for DISNEY, the curtains are from Twinkletoes, with lots of stretching, and the tickets are from Locker Talk.  I can't remember what the movie/stage board is from (sorry), but as you can see, I used it for my journaling box. 

I can't wait to see everyone else's layouts!  This is such a great wait to get ideas and inspiration, because I have lots of Disney trips left to scrap.

Thank you!

Thanks fellow Disney Lovers for your kind comments about my Disney Pixar Blog Hop projects.  Your encouragement is sooooo appreciated, and interest from others is so motivational to me!

A couple of people asked questions, so here are the answers:

Q: Melissa said...
I bet Baylee was super excited to get personalized artwork! What is the black Mickey head on the ribbon? Is that a button? I don't think I've seen them in black and I love it!
A:  Yes, it is a button.  I recently (~ 6 weeks) ordered them from, and ordered 2 bags because I hadn't seen them before either.  They are from Queen and Company, and come in a package with yellow, black, and red buttons.  Unfortunately, I've not found them available anywhere since this initial purchase.

Q:  Sunshine HoneyBee said...
"Like your Mickey Mouse creations. Especially like what looks like Mickey Mouse black ears brads. Where did you get the MM black ear brads?"
A:  Not sure which piece you are referring to, and it might even be the button Melissa asked about above.  The frame layout, nor the 12x12's, have any brads, but there are some Mickey head eyelets on one of the pages. 

Check back for the blog candy winner.  I'll post by Tuesday night or Wednesday!

Have a Magical Day!

Day 2 - Disney Pixar Blog Hop

Welcome once again to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from the truly amazing Melissa, you're right on track.  If not, head first to see Shawn's project, so you start at the very beginning of the blog hop, then follow the hop list.  

So my first project is an 8"x10" picture frame, for my sweet niece who recently turned 2.  For she and her brother's birthdays, I make a picture frame layout to match their birthday party theme.  My niece is very into Minnie right now!
To the right the layout is shown inside the frame.

I simply welded Mickey heads for the bottom border and cut some bows too, with half of them "flipped".  The "2" is 4 layers of DSP and card stock, although it's hard to see in the photo. 

I'm also sharing a few 12x12 layouts . . .

Never enough Disney layouts . . . I have years' worth of Disney trips yet to scrap ! I always use Stampin' Up cardstock, and when I'm working Disney, I use a variety of DSPs.

 I've posted "Divine" layouts before, but I can't help but repeatedly scrap her.  She is so amazing to me! 

Are you wondering about blog candy?  Everyone can use cricut mats it seems, so I'll be giving away a set of mats again, and a few other surprises!  To qualify, become a blog follower, if you're not already, and leave me a comment about today's project.  I'll use to choose a winner by mid week.

Check out Bobbi Jo's project next!  Enjoy the hop and be sure to come back!

Today's entire line up, just in case you get lost:
