Yayy! It’s here…. The Disney/ Pixar Blog Hop.
Maybe at this point I should just say, “thanks for dropping by on the hop today, now on to the next stop.” (You know, quit while I’m ahead.) Have you ever seen such cute and creative cleverness like the ladies have shown today?
Thanks to Shawn & Melissa for coming up with this fun idea for a hop and for letting me be a part of it. If you didn’t start at the beginning with Shawn, please be sure and hop all the way around so you don’t miss anything! I know there are some fantastic projects and prizes along the way. There are only 11 stops, (the list is at the end) so provided everyone doesn’t ramble on like me, you should be able to hop right on thru without it taking too much time. (I’ve got to learn that on these hops you’ve got to keep it short & sweet.) So let’s get down to business….
Ever since I started making cards last fall I’ve been wanting to make a pop-up stage card and just haven’t gotten around to it. I don’t know what on earth possessed me to try one now. It’s kinda like trying out a new recipe that you’ve never made before when you’re having guests over for dinner. Here’s what I came up with.
Cartridges used : Pooh & Friends, Create a Critter and Lyrical Letters
Maybe I shouldn't have taken these shots outside 'cause it makes the card look a little washed out, but the azaleas are just too pretty and I wanted to share. Besides, they say "Happy Spring" way better than anything I could ever do.
For last week’s hop we played a game to win my candy so I thought we’d do that again because it was really fun & I enjoyed the comments I got from it. For today we’re going to do the alphabet game again. Starting with A if you are the first commenter, B if you are the 2nd and so on….
Name any Disney or Pixar character (it’s not as hard as it seems, I had my family do a test run. Just don’t forget all the old Disney cartoons.) Some of you may not be as Disney savvy as others so, if you really get stuck just name something you would see at Disney World-any of the 4 parks. If someone skips a letter just pick up where they left off. After you name your character tell me which of the 2 blog candy choices you would like if you are picked. I will announce the winner Monday and they will have until Friday the 1st at noon to claim their prize. Prize one is a brand new set of Spellbinders Lg. Octagon dies. Prize two is Paper Pizazz's Disney Mickey & Friends Paper Pack. It's an 8x8 pack with 38 papers, with coordinating tags, borders & artwork.
A little after note:
If you want to make one of these stage cards there are several good tutorials out there. The main one I used is by Kim Score at Paper Punch Addiction. There are a couple of things you need to keep in mind:
-Before construction, decide what your “scene” is going to be & what figures you are going to use, then you will know how many tabs & slots you’re going to need for the stage.
-Make sure you don’t make your figures/characters too tall & make sure they are placed far enough to the back of the stage so that they don’t extend past the edge of the card when closed. (Pooh's honeypot is right at the edge of the card.)
Wishing you sunshine and smiles, love and laughter
