My name is Christine and I love Disney. I visited Disney with my family as a child and then again in my early 20s, but I fell in love with Disney in 2007, when I took my then 4 year old Daughter for her first visit. This was the vacation that I could plan. I could finally stay on Disney property, eat in the restaurants and explore the way I wanted. Walking down main street for the first time with Gemma brought tears to my eyes. Exploring and learning more about Disney as an adult brought a whole new love and admiration for the parks.
On our first trip we went to Akershus for breakfast to meet the Princesses. Gemma met Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Mulan, Jasmine and Snow White. Later that afternoon we were walking around the World Showcase and stopped to meet the princesses once again. All of them were from breakfast that morning and all of the remembered Gemma and said that they had breakfast together. As a 4 year old, she just nodded and said yes, but as an adult I was so impressed that they remembered her and it was an amazing moment.
We have continued to have so many amazing moments. Gemma played Minnie Toss at the Candy Shoppe on Main Street; we were the 100th Family at the Plaza and got our picture with the Mayor and Gemma got to be Jr. Mayor of the day on Halloween.
We have since gone back 5 times, became Disney Vacation Club Members, went on a Disney Cruise and have been to Disneyland 5 times plus I have 2 more trips planned for December and March, and another Disneyland trip in January. Sometimes we go as a family, sometimes it is just Gemma and myself, or Mark and myself – but it is always a fabulous trip. Gemma has grown up loving Disney and during each visit, we are planning our next one and talking about where we should stay and what restaurants to visit. Our touring has changed, but our love for Disney just keeps getting stronger.
I want to share what I have learned with you! I will be covering design details, touring tips, favourite restaurants and snacks, hotel reviews and everything Disney every Friday on this blog!
I love Jenni Bowlin’s style, so I was excited to find out that she has designed some stencils that are now available through the Crafter’s Workshop! There are 6 stencils in both the 6″x6″ and 12″x12″. They are Random Stars, Number Stencil, North Star, Vineyard, Spotted and Netting! On the card above I used the 6×6 Vineyard on the left and the 12×12 Vineyard stencil on the right.
On this card I used the 6×6 North Star on the left and the 12×12 North Star stencil on the right.
Here I used the 6×6 Random Stars on the left and the 12×12 Random Stars on the Right.
The card on the left is the 12×12 Spotted Stencil and the card on the right is the 12×12 Netting Stencil.
Here I used the 6×6 Spotted Stencil, the 6×6 Netting Stencil and the 6×6 Numbers Stencil.
Finally, this was the card I was working on in the video. I used the 6×6 North Star stencil with White Embossing Paste on the base of the card. Once it was dry I coloured over it using the Derwent Inktense Pencils, and then painted them with water to activate them.
