Disneyland 2018 Layout for JOANN

This blog post is sponsored by JOANN.
Last weekend I went to my local JOANN in Tacoma, WA and found some of my Pink Paislee scrapbooking supplies to create a layout!
I started by making rolled flowers - one of my favorite embellishments! I chose papers from the the Take Me Away 6x6 Paper Pad and used a Silhouette Cameo to die cut 18 flowers - (6) from mint/aqua papers, (3) purple, (5) pink/red, and (4) yellow. I actually die cut a whole bunch more flowers than I ended up using, but now I have more for another project! Win win!
I used five of my Rolled Flower cut files to create the flowers: Rolled Flower 1, Rolled Flower 2, Rolled Flower 3, Rolled Flower 4, and Rolled Flower 6. I varied the sizes of the same design to create lots of different sizes of the same flower. I die cut all of the flowers first and then rolled them all up, using hot glue to stick them together.
Next I picked a background paper from the Take Me Away 12x12 Paper Pad - it's a pretty ombre background that fades to a new color in each corner. Like I love to do lately, I decided to create a wreath. For another layer of texture I die cut my Wreath cut file from smooth white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo.
To make the background more interesting I splashed white acrylic paint all around and then splashed watercolors on top - purples on the top left, mints and aquas on the top right, pinks and reds on the bottom left, and yellows on the bottom right. Once the paint had dried my paper was warped so I ran it through a Heidi Swapp Minc machine to flatten it.
The background, flowers, and wreath were all ready to go - next step was to find a photo! I looked through our recent Disneyland pics and found one with the most perfect coordinating colors! It was meant to be :) I enlarged the photo to 8" square and printed it at home. I placed the photo in the center of the layout and glued the die cut wreath on top. Then I trimmed off the corners of the photo that were showing. I used a hot glue gun to adhere the flowers in place. I had been taking photos of the layout throughout the process and referred back to it to put the flowers back in place exactly where I liked them.
Next I worked on the title. I flipped through the Paige Evans 30-Page #StickerBook and found the colorful mini alphabet stickers to spell "DISNEYLAND 2018". I placed the letters on regular copy paper first and then trimmed around them since I wanted to be sure of their placement on the photo and I was able to move them around this way.
I flipped through the #StickerBook and found coordinating colored bits to stick all around the wreath. I found some matching sequins to adhere here and there around the wreath for a little sparkle and shine.
Then came the journaling - I typed it in the font Remington Noiseless, printed it out, trimmed them into strips, and adhered them directly on the photo. All done!
I loved creating these colorful rolled paper flowers and an entire layout using supplies found in JOANN stores! I hope you'll visit your local JOANN and pick up some fun things to create a similar layout! Since the flowers are so dimensional, I'm going to place this page in a shadowbox and hang it on the wall. I like how the photo is larger than I tend to usually work with and highlighted by the pretty flowers and embellishments. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you again next month with another project for JOANN!
