Phineas & Ferb Layout

Let me premise this layout with saying that I am completely annoyed with myself for not putting these clear stickers on white paper and cutting them out...grrrrr! I tend to put stuff on my layout and then pull it back up 17 times...but these would not come back up and let me change my mind :(   Nonetheless here it is!
My son was Perry the Platypus for Halloween so for the Disney feature on Practical Scrappers I created this layout featuring the fun characters from Phineas & Ferb.  My favorite part is the bakers twine being used to catch Dr. Doofenschmurtz (sp???)  Even though I'm not thrilled with the stickers issue, I do love the colors and the fun feel of this layout.
Supplies Used: DCWV patterned paper, cosmo cricket stickers, echo park letter stickers

Baby Boy Meyer's Nursery

Once we knew the baby is going to be a boy, Timmy and I decided his nursery had to be train themed. We, all four of us, have worked have worked hard on decorating it and getting it ready. Aside from setting up linens etc, I think we are basically decorated! This was the first time I've had the cricut to use on a did it open up tremendous possibilities!

I made custom curtain rods from wood dowels that I painted white. I painted wood trains and used those for the curtain rod holders...I did white trim to look like stitching on those using my Sakura gel pen. It worked awesome on wood with acrylic paint!

Above the bedroom door

I couldn't find a sign like this that I liked on the cricut, so I made my own with cricut letters and white Contact Paper. Also the tracks you see, circle the entire room. I initially was going to do them with vinyl...but that was cost prohibitive and frankly kinda ugly. So I hand painted these instead and am quite happy with the result! Can't beat $2 for the bottle of paint!

Each of my kids have a verse hanging up in their room that I created on the cricut. Again this is just Contact much cheaper than Cricut vinyl! I was inspired by a scrapping friend, Amy, to tie this verse into the room! You can also see a couple more of the curtain rod holders...I did each one a different color.

Got the sign off of the Going Places cartridge. I used Contact paper for the background and regular Black Cardstock for the black part.

I made a five car lenth train because I wanted to spell out Meyer on it. Timmy picked the colors and it turned out pretty well. For each of these I cut using the Blackout feature and then used Cardstock for the colored parts. I made sure the paper I used was fadeproof.

This is a closeup of the engine train, I did a white trim on all these too to look like sewing.

I think I am done with the decorating part for now. I've got some more ideas, but those will have to wait until we meet the little peanut and give him a name!
