Fun Ways with Washi
Hello. I'm Lisa. One of the new 2017 Creative Team members.
I'm really excited to be with you here today. I hope you will enjoy my scrapbooking creations.
I have two layouts for you today, both using the new 'Say Cheese III' collection.
The 'Say Cheese' collections are perfect for me as we are a Disney loving family. It's a special year for us as it celebrates 10 years since our first Disney World trip. We are so excited about going back again this Summer. As the excitement is building there's lots of family chat about our previous trips. I tend to just scrapbook each trip and it all goes away in separate scrapbooks, but I wouldn't usually mix the photos from the different trips, so this is what I've done today.
I've taken one photo from each of the trips. It's so nice to see them all together like this, seeing how the children have changed and grown.
I printed each photo really small, just 1.8 inch square with a thick white border so I could piece them together like a photo strip.
I really enjoy using the 12x12 papers that are made up from the journaling cards. They are so fun to use. I have taken the piece with the 3x4 cards and cut two from this piece of paper. I left a small space between the two cards so that my photo strip could have center stage.
I really enjoy using washi tape. I particularly like the tapes from this collection. The red with polka dots just screams Disney out to me, so I had to use this. Red, polka dots and bows, to me this just means Minnie Mouse. The bow is easy to make by sticking the tape down on thin card and trimming the edges. It can then be shaped in to a bow. I used the 'smile' which comes in the pack of 'bits and pieces'. This covers the joins nice and neatly.
I used this same technique to make some journal strips. Sticking the tape down to card again and then trimming down in to thin strips. It's a fun way to add a little journaling.
I also used more of the 'Bits and Pieces' and the Rotary Stamp.
Lastly, I took one more of the 3x4 journal cards from that same piece of 12x12 paper and from this card I cut out the word 'LOVE'. The perfect final piece to my page.
For my second project, I decided I was going to frame a piece of art for our Disney inspired gallery wall.
Sometimes I feel it's a shame to file all these happy memories away in scrapbooks.
We take so much time creating these pages, I like to display them in my home too.
Our Disney memories are our happiest memories, so for me I like to create and display.
I picked up this 12x12 white photo frame and removed the glass.
I cut a piece of cardstock just slightly larger than the space.
I used the Snap Pack this time and took two of the 6x4 cards and stuck them down over lapping one another. I measured the space on the upper journal card so that my photo would fit perfectly.
I used a mixture of the 'Bits and Pieces' pack and also some of the pieces that come in the Snap Pack.
Some of the pieces are stuck on to the layout and some partially on the layout and the mount and some just on the mount itself, really bringing the project together.
To finish, I took the same polka dot washi once again and stuck it to the edge of my 12x12 frame. I love that extra touch of Disney magic this adds. It really finishes this job off perfectly.
This frame now has a home on our Disney gallery wall going up our stairs.
Thank you for stopping by today.
