Theme Park Party Favors

Want a fun to way to let your kids know they are going to Disneyland or another special theme park this summer? How about throwing them a little party in which you make the big announcement. You can easily create these little treat boxes with a manual die cut machine, a fry box die shape, and the "Magical Memories" paper crafting collection from Echo Park Paper. Fill each box with popcorn or other treats for each child:

How to Create a Gallery Art Wall!

I love the way a gallery of art fills an entire wall. I've used gallery art in several places in my home. Today I wanted to share one from my downstairs family room. This gallery wall is informal, fun, and incorporates things that work for a space that kids and adults use on a regular basis.

To Create a Gallery Art Wall:

1. Mix photos with art work, unique pieces, and items that have meaning.
2. You can mix up the frames, but here I used only white frames.
3. The cuckoo clock is a family heirloom that I hung on the wall. I balanced it on the left side with a wood chevron US map. This keeps the gallery balanced.
4. I repeated the movie reels on both sides of the gallery to create balance.
5. I kept the distance between each frame consistent to help the gallery feel cohesive.

Seas the Day Scrapbooking Layout: SCT Magazine

I love the way a nautical paper crafting collection can be used to document any water-themed memory. In this video and project for Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine, I used the "By the Sea" collection from My Mind's Eye to create the following layout:
