Seeing as how my daughter and I share a craftroom I thought it only fitting that she should share my blog too.
So, here is her first blog entry!

Scrapbooking is not just for books!

I bought these framed prints over a year ago with the intentions of altering them to decorate my bathroom.

At the time I was not picturing Disney at all, but after a fall trip last year I decided to decorate my bathroom in Disney.  These framed prints were $6.00 each at Big Lots.

I wanted to stamp and color images but could not find what I wanted.  So, I ended up with clipart images.

I printed several images on plain paper to get my sizing where I wanted it.

I printed the images on cream cardstock for a more vintage feel.

Next I carefully removed the liner and backing from the frames.  Being careful not to cut myself!

Next I created my insert and clipart and simply used my ATG to adhere it over the store print.
Added some bling.

I put it back together and TADA, custom artwork on a dime.

After being at Disney for 10 days I didn't see any small prints similar to this and if I had I guarantee they would have been much more than $6.00!

I hope this has inspired you to look at those garage sale, thrift store or dollar store home accents in terms of what it could be.

Hope you enjoyed this.  I'll be posting more tomorrow.

  1. Those are very cute - I love Pooh
    actually my facebook pic has me & Pooh at this moment in time.
    I saw that you went to Disney (on this post) & in a comment to Sam you said that you use MTC, I been wondering if my SCAL files work in MTC - since you went to Disney I thought you might find one that should work for you & try it then let me know.
    I always post (well since getting SCAL2) SCAL2 file then my inkscape file - I thought the inkscape would work in MTC but wasn't sure.

    Anyways I love your blog - makes me think I need to do more with mine but I keep inkscaping or reading the Disboard.

    almost forgot my blog -
