Just Add Color & Disneyland!

Disneyland 1This past trip to Disneyland was a blast! Not only was it Raiden’s birthday, but it was Halloween time as well.  The first night we were there was Mickey’s Halloween Party.  We all got dressed up in costume and trick or treated at the happiest place on earth.  My daughters and I were vintage mousketeers for the event.  This is something I think will only happen once in a lifetime and I’m so glad I got pictures of it.  For the costumes we wore, I found identical white tees for each of us and used my Silhouette Portrait to apply each of our names (just like The Mickey Mouse Club did) to the front of the tees.  I found the vintage logo of the Mickey Mouse Club online and applied that to the backs of our tees using my Silhouette Portrait as well.  I purchased navy blue cotton fabric and elastic from Joann’s and made each of us a matching skirt that copied the style of the skirts the girls wore in The Mickey Mouse Club.  We already had Mickey ears to top off our costumes!

Just Add Color Edition Full Collection available NOW at Digital Project Life.

The sketch I used for the layout I found at Studio Calico.

Krafty premium cardstock by Core’dinations.

I used my Silhouette Portrait and software to trace the basic shapes from the sketch. I used the black Silhouette Sketch Pen for the dashed border around the focal items.  I found the Minnie Mouse hat online and made it a cut file for my Silhouette Portrait and attached it to the layout using 3D Zots.

I used bling accents from Imaginisce and applied them to the layout using their I-Rock tool.

I like using the digital versions of Project Life because it gives me more bang for my buck.  I’m able to fill shapes in Silhouette Studio with the filler and journaling cards from the digital kits which will shape them into other elements I may need to supplement a more traditional look on my layouts.  Sometimes I just want to step outside the basic shapes of project life and the digital version allows me to do that.

Here’s a peek at the Just Add Color Edition Full Collection I used on the above layout.
