Calling all Scrapeteers

This post is dedicated to all the wonderful & talented gals that I attended Scrap Camp with!  Thank you for sharing your ideas & projects with me.  Most importantly thank you for your friendship!  I am so glad that we take the time out from our hectic schedules to spend one weekend a year together crafting and sharing ideas.  It was a fun filled three days that I hated to see end!  I am already looking forward to next year!

Roll Call...back row, left to right is Charlotte, Myself, Karen, Peggy and Candy. The front row, left to right is Carol, Anna Luisa, Delia, Danielle and Delma.  These are the wonderful group of ladies that make up Scrap Camp!

Talent Round Up Continues

I have just a few more things to share from Scrap Camp.  Scrapeteer Anna Luisa made the following:

The bracelet was purchased at  Michaels.    Anna Luisa used Close To My Heart True Black archival ink to stamp the images.  The images are from EK Success. This was such a great idea!  I can't wait to try it.

This mini book started out as a sheet of chipboard that needed assembled and decorated.  Anna Luisa purchased the book at AZ Scrapbooking.  The paper that she used is from her stash.  The Mickey punch is from EK Success. I think it turned out SUPER cute!

Scrapeteer Candy passed out this adorable goodie bag filled with all kinds of Disney treats!

Scrapeteer Delia recently took a class at AZ Scrapbooking and learned how to make these cute containers.
Delia used patterned paper from her stash. She used her Cuttlebug and an embossing folder to make the handle.  According to Delia this is super easy to make.  I lost count how many of them she made during our weekend together.

Scrapeteer Delia

Here is Delia with all that she made. Aren't they super cute?  I think that it is a great way to use up that patterned paper.  These could be used as a gift bag for a birthday present or as a container to hold crayons, etc.  At camp we had our Mickey shaped cookies in one of them. Lots of possibilities! 

That's all for now crafty friends! I hope that everyone is enjoying their Saturday!

Scrap Camp Talent Round-Up

All of the decorations at Scrap Camp were just wonderful. My fellow Scrapeteer, Danielle, made the following fun Disney decorations using her Cricut.  She did such a fantastic job that I had to share them with you.

Danielle also made this adorable Buzz Lightyear card:
Danielle used the Cricut cartridges Toy Story and Sweet Treats.  She used black gems for the eyes.

Scrapeteers Danielle and Delia made this awesome magnet!  They gave one to each of us.
The following were purchased at My Fun Stampers Journey :  the Mickey gem, the bottle cap magnet and the action wobble (it is under Mickey's glove).  This magnet looks too cute on my refrigerator!

This super cute bag was made by Carol & Peggy.  We all got one of these too!
The following was used to make this bag:  sparkle felt, glitter glue, & Aileens fast set glue.  The felt letters were made using the Cuttlebug.  Yes! The Cuttlebug cut felt! Using the Cricut, a template was made for the Mickey head.  Peggy & Carol then traced the Mickey head on to the felt and had cut it out.  What a great idea! I just love it!!

Scrapeteer Delma passed out these pencils and handmade pencil holders .  Each one was personalized with our photo. 
Delma used soup cans to make these pencil holders.  What a great way to recycle!

Here are just a few pictures of our scrapping area.  All the Scrapeteers are busy on their projects.

I have a few more cute things that the gals made for scrap camp to show you.  I will share those with you in my next post.  Until then, have a MAGICAL DAY!!!!

More Scrap Camp Magic

I have so much more to share with you about Scrap Camp that I don't know where to begin.  I think that the best place to start is where I left off on my last post and that is at the Fab Five Diner.  There were WONDERFUL treats at Scrap Camp's Fab Five Diner!  We had a GIANT Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie treat that was straight from Walt Disney World.  I was lucky enough to get an ear!

Straight from Disney World!

Myself and my friend Candy.  We each got an ear!  YUMMY!

Delicious Disney styled cupcakes made by Scrapeteer Delma.

More treats at the Diner!

Even our refrigerator at the Diner was decorated Disney style.

Needless to say the food was an important part of our Scrap Camp weekend! ha-ha  We also had lots of other treats that the gals brought.  Those treats just happened to have been eaten before I could get a picture of them.

Just so you don't think that all I did was hang out at the Diner while I was at camp here's a picture of one of the cards that I made.

I used the Cricut cartridge Disney Dreams Come True.  I cut the adorable Mrs. Potts at 5 1/2 inches.  This is a shaped card (see next picture)

This is the inside of the card.  With the help of my friend Peggy & my Gypsy I welded Mrs. Potts so that she is a shaped card.  The sentiment is from Rubbernecker.

I will be back soon to share more about the fun I had at scrap camp.  Thanks for stopping by and have a magical filled day!

I have linked Mrs. Potts to my favorite link party, Printabelle Wonderful Wednesday Link Party #8 .

Disney Magic at Scrap Camp

I am back from my fun filled weekend at Scrap Camp and have SO much to share with you!  The theme was Disney and the ten of us who attended were the "Scrapeteers" for the weekend.  All who attended participated in the theme.  We all wore Disney themed shirts, made gifts to share and even the cookies were shaped like Mickey. It was all just too fun!! Over the next week I will share with you all the fun that I had.

These are the gift bags that I gave out to my fellow Scrapeteers.

This tag was on the gift bag that I gave out.  I cut the Mickey head using the Cricut cartridge Mickey Font. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart and I sprayed the tag with Goosebumps to give it some texture.

My van loaded and ready for a fun- filled weekend!!

The welcome table at Scrap Camp. This was located outside the door to our scrapping room.

This was on the welcome table.

This was also on the welcome table.

A partial view of the beautifully decorated room done by my friends Candy and Danielle. This was taken before the Scrapeteers arrived.

My friend Candy loves Disney just as much as I do.  She brought some of her Disney collection to use as decorations.  Those are her Disney ears hanging from the ceiling.  Some of the pictures of the Mouseketeers were taken at a Disney event the two of us attended in 2010.  That was such a thrill to meet some of the original Mouseketeers!

This is how my "Fab Five" were used. I think that they are too cute all grouped together!

I have so much more to share with you from my fabulous weekend! Be sure to check back this week.  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a great day!

Mickey & Minnie Complete the Fab Five

Scrap Camp is less than a week away and I am READY!  I just finished Mickey & Minnie.  They were cut at 11 inches using the Cricut cartridge Mickey and Friends.  I inked them using a brown chalk ink.  I embossed Minnie's bow using the Cuttlebug and the swiss dot embossing folder.  Now that I have Mickey & Minnie done the Disney's Fab Five are complete! I hope you are having a Magical Day!

Disney's Fab Five

With Scrap Camp just around the corner I have been busy working on a few decorations for our scrapping room.  Each year we have a theme and this year it is Disney.  I am so excited that this is the theme!  What "Disney Girl" wouldn't love this theme? There are so many Disney choices that when I decided to make a few decorations I chose to limit my choice to just the Fab Five.  Who are the Fab Five you ask? They are Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy.  So far I have three out of the five done.  Here they are:

I cut all three of them at 11 inches using the Cricut cartridge Mickey and Friends.  This cartridge was a dream to work with when cutting at 11 inches!! So much more fun than those smaller cuts!  I may just have to start making my cards this big when using this cartridge. I inked around the edges using a brown chalk ink.  I am very excited about how they turned out.

To find out more about Disney's Fab Five follow this link Ten Surprising Facts About the Disney's Fab Five.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you get a chance leave me a comment who your favorite Disney character is.  Mine is Mary Poppins with Cinderella as a very close second.  Have a Magical Day and thanks again for visiting Disney Girl Crafts.

It Is Getting Closer To Scrap Camp Time!!

What is Scrap Camp for this Disney Girl?  It is three days of crafting at a local, fabulous hotel with nine other fantastic ladies! Scrap Camp means no household chores for three days! Scrap Camp means A LOT of fun crammed into one wonderful weekend.  Guess what?? It is less than three weeks away and I am super excited!

Here is the layout that I worked on last year.  It took me almost the entire weekend to complete it.  It was so worth it!  The gals convinced me to frame it and hang it up in my Disney hallway at my house.  I am so glad that I did.  Every time I walk by it I am reminded of the fun I had when the photos were taken and also the fun I had scrapping the layout! (This picture was taken before I added the photos to it)

This layout was made from a kit that I purchased from Monique Griffith.  She is a wonderful paper crafter with amazing designs.  Her kits are incredible!  This one included the paper and amazing directions.   This layout is 100 percent her creation.  All that I did was follow her instructions.  Thanks Monique!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a magical day!
