Day 5: My First Cruise Layout

Hi there! I am seriously having so much fun crafting every day. It is something I can look forward to while I am doing the laundry and other boring chores around the house. What time of day do you get your crafty fun time? Mine is usually at night.

REMINDER: You can leave a comment on each post this week for even more chances to win the lovely giveaway prize, complete details are here.

Would you like to take a journey into the early nineties with me?  The photo I used on my layout today is from 1993!! Yes, that is me as a little girl! We were heading aboard on my first Disney Cruise so I thought it was appropriate to scrapbook this photo with a Disney cartridge.

This layout was made using the new Disney Best of Pixar cartridge. Click on the photo to see a larger version.

Layout details:

  • The fish was cut at 3inches using the following Stampin’ UP Cardstocks: Basic Black, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry (retired), Baja Breeze, and Pacific Point.
  • The seaweed pieces were cut at 7inches (the ones on the left) and 8 inches (the ones on the right) using the following colors: Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, and Pear Pizazz.
  • The ground was cut at 2.75inches tall, which was the size that it picked when I used a 12X12 piece of cardstock and pressed the fit to page button. The piece ended up cutting 11.25inches long, which was perfect for my page because I wanted to have the yellow mat around the whole page.
  • To make the sand, I used the Copic airbrush system from iCopic.com. I just used a lighter brown shade to accent the Kraft cardstock.
  • The patterned paper is from the Echo Park Summertime collection.
  • The alphas are Thickers from American Crafts (these ones happen to be available in the SP and Company store.
  • The base cardstock is Stampin’ UP’s Daffodil Delight textured cardstock.

  2. Very cute lo! Love Disney. 😀 My only times to craft are at night when everyone else is asleep (we have 5 kids) or while all except the baby are at school for the day.

  3. Very cute – I’m going to have to check that cart out – most likely not get it – got too much nemo stuff on SCAL (I don’t even own the movie which is weird since I have alot of Disney)

  4. awww! So Cute! Lucky your first cruise was when you were little. Mine was this year… and I’m 26!! Thanks for sharing. I still have to scrapbook my entire cruise to Alaska from August! Love the cartridge, perfect for the occasion!
