CIRCLES and a Birthday invite!

Wow, I didn't realize the kick I am stuck on!  The last 4 LOs I posted were all done with circles!!  I promise the next page I do will not have circles!! I am actually trying out something new, but I have to run to Joann's before I can finish it.  Maybe I will have the chance later today.  But for now, I have one more thing to show you..

My daughter will be celebrating her birthday and wanted to have a Hannah Montana party, but I talked her into changing it to a generalized RockStar party.  We put the invites together last night and this is what we came up with.  The other side has written out with markers using Lyrical Letter "Come Party Like a ROCK STAR."  We used Every Day Paper Dolls to make the girls (any boys for the boy invites) and the star was cut using George.  I did use design studio to do the front of the invites and layout the back before cutting.  I printed the info for the party out on labels and cut them down into strips so I could just stick them on.  We were happy how they came out!  Next up making a 12" paper doll to play Pin the Mic on the Rock Star!

Hard Work

Here is another page I got done the other night.  I used Sesame Street font for the title and the patterned paper is from Nana's Kids paper stack.  Also used the George cartridge for the circles.

Funny Boy

The other night a few friend of mine got together and I made a few pages.  Here is one that I did that night, and I am feeling like it needs something else.  What do you think?  Title font is Lyrical Letters, paper is from the My Big Ideas Boy stack and circles were made with the Creative memories circle cutters.  Very simplistic page, but does it need more?

I was able to get together with a friend yesterday to do some scrapping.  It was so much fun and this is what came out of it!  I would call it a successful day!  I was finally able to bust out my My Big Ideas boy stack that I got for Christmas last year.  I LOVE this stack of paper.  It has the cutest boy papers!  I also used CM circle cutters for the red circles, title was Mickey font, and spots on the title were made using Everyday Paper dolls cartridge.  Love how this came out!

Weekend Scrapbooking Retreat

I am lucky enough to be able to spend a weekend twice a year at a scrapbooking retreat with my mom and some good friends.  I felt productive this year as I was able to almost finish my daughter's 2008 photos (I did come home and do the last 2 pages a few nights later!).  Here are the pages I was able to get done:

I used Gypsy Font for the title and creative memory circle punches for the circle.  The papers are from the DCWV Christmas Stack

The title is from the Mickey Mouse Font and the papers are from the DCWV Green Stack (LOVE this stack).

I used Prima flowers in the corners with skittle centers.  The birds are cut from paper in the Green Stack.  The little girl die cut is A Child's Year.

Paper here is again from the Green Stack.  Title is cut using the Sesame Street font.  Hand is cut using A Child's Year.

Title is welded together using the Gypsy using the Mickey Font.  Beach scene is cut from A Child's Year.  Paper is from a new stack I just picked up from DCWV Summer Dream Stack.

The title here is Mickey Font again.  The paper is from the Summer Dream stack.  The flower in the corner is a Prima glitter flower.

This is one of my favorites from this weekend.  The paper is from the DCWV Christmas stack and the present is from Doodlecharms. I don't remember exactly, but I believe the title was cut using 2 different fonts off the Lyrical Letters Cartridge.

The paper is again from the Christmas Stack.  The snowflakes are cut from Winter Woodland and then pop dotted.  The title is cut from Lyrical Letters.

Again, Christmas Stack paper and the title is cut from Winter Woodland.  Buttons are glued down in the bottom corner.

The title was make using the Gypsy and mini gel pens.  I replaced the blade in the Cricut with a mini gel pen using a pencil gripper to hold it in place.  Once the lettering was drawn I put the blade back in to cut the circle.  Paper is from the Green Stack.

And my last one using the Green Stack again for the papers.  The middle picture was pop dotted to give dimension.  The title was made using the Zooballoo font.

I am excited to be done with her 2008 pictures.  Now it's time to move on to my son's 2008!
