Disney Pixar Blog Hop Day!!

I was so excited to be invited in the Disney Pixar Blog Hop and I want to thank Shawn and Melissa  for putting it together and inviting me!!!  If you are stopping by from Cindy's blog Snoflaks you are in the right spot!   If you are just stopping by for the day, HOWDY!  I'm part of the Disney Pixar blog hop, and you are missing out on loads of great ideas, so head on over to Shawn's blog Crafty Chics Blog (and CricutSearch) to start the blog hop!

While it has been years since my last trip to Disney World (waaaah) and I already scrapbooked that whole trip, there are still some every day Disney things that are part of my life.  For instance, right now my youngest boy is in love with Toy Story, mostly Buzz Lightyear!  For Christmas he ended up with a Buzz and Woody that communicate with each other, the Toy Story play set and all the guys that went with it, and a Toy Story game for his DS.
So when I saw the Toy Story cartridge I knew I had to have it hehe! 
But then I saw all those tiny parts on that cartridge.  And it sat, and sat, and sat.  I have this thing about getting things done quick, or I don't want to do them!  So I thought why not draw out all those tiny parts instead of cutting them?  I used Design Studio to layer all of my parts, hiding the parts I didn't want drawn out.  There are 2 different files for this page, and they will both be at the bottom of this post.
This is what I got, the black is what gets drawn, the light blue is invisible. 

I added the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder with the black metallic mini gel pen to the Cricut and drew the images out.  Then I had added a shadow layer to the Design Studio file to use to cut around my images.  Without removing the mat from the Cricut, I carefully removed the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder and replaced the blade to cut the shadow image.

This is what the images look like drawn with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder!  Time to color hehe!

One of my favorite parts of the Chomas Creations mini gel pens is that I can use them with the Copics, and there is NO smearing!!!  And there is a little kid in me that loves to color hehe!


I also drew the title with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder and colored that with the Copics as well.

So can you guess the next thing I did with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder?  Perhaps background paper?  Well I didn't have any Toy Story background paper, so I decided to make my own with the images from the Toy Story cartridge!  Can you see all the details you get?  I chose 2 of the Buzz images, and 2 of the Woody images to draw.

Here is the page all put together!!!  Along with my lil guy Jack!  I added my journaling around the outside of the page as well.

If you would like the file to draw the background paper, you can get it here... Toy Story background

And if you would like the file to draw the Buzz, Woody, and title, you can get that file here...
**CLOSED**  And if you would like to win a Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder with a set of the Chomas Creations assorted mini gel pens, you have a chance right now!!!  You can become a follower if you would like but it isn't necessary.  Leave a comment after this post with what you would try drawing with your Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder, and be sure to leave a way for me to contact you as well.  Simple as that!  Only one comment per person please.  I will use a random number generator by Monday to pick a winner.


Here is a list of all the blogs in the hop in case you have gotten lost!

Those drawings are fantastic! I would love to try using a flower cartridge.

What's up Duck? said...

Oh that is so cool!
You know, I'd like to answer your question, but I'm not really sure what I'd draw. Probably something for my cat's scrapbook page, I'd have to look through my choices here and see.

Love your layout. Creative idea!

I will use the gel pens to write sentiments in cards. I hate cutting them out.

Sandy said...

I love all the ideas that have come out of this hop. I own quite a few of the cricut cartridges but have not gotten to all the characters yet.....can't wait to get started now!!!

Linda Hayes said...

Guess I am going to have to buy a couple of new cartridges.

Rae-beccadesigns said...

Super cute layout. I really need to utilize my gel pen holder more often. I absolutely love it!

Kim M. said...

Great idea using the pens instead of cutting out all those tiny pieces that somehow manage to go missing in my scraproom. I think I would also draw the Toy Story characters and probably the Pixar Cars diecuts. Actually, I would draw anything that has all of those little tiny pieces!

Christine said...

Love your Toy Story layouts! Gotten some great ideas! Thanks for the chance to win

Scrapping Rose said...

I was unfamiliar with your product until stopping on your blog. It is a must have. What terrific work and what a great idea. thanks for posting.

Shawn Mosch said...

LOVE IT! My favorite part is how you created your own background paper. I sometimes get frustrated when I cannot find just the right background paper, and your idea would fix that problem.

Thank you so much for being a part of this hop!

Nice to know that Chomas can be used with Copics .... Drawing is on my list of "things to learn". I'd probably start with some smaller drawings for the cards I make for my grandkids. Very interesting process. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!

Great idea ... I HATE that paper piecing too and never thought to use gel pens. Thank you for the tip! And of course I'd love an oppty to try yours out, winning them to sample. I have other gel pens and wonder the difference.

Awesome layout. My little guys love all things Toy Story too! I am like you and dislike all the pieces and time it takes to do the layering with some of these cartridges. This is an awesome idea to draw the details and color them in. Hope i will win your pens and holder set to use with my cricut. If not i will just have to buy one. Thanks for the great blog and the great ideas! My contact is jrfurlong@gmail.com

Your layout is great! I would use the pens to draw anything Disney because some of the cuts are small.

Great layout and way to make background paper. This is how I would use the pens to make more background paper. THanks for the ideas.

Tambo said...

I love this idea of using it for back ground paper. Disney paper is always more than other paper at the store. I think I would draw Mickey's gloves. You did a great job. I don't have these pens, but if I don't win, I will have to definitely get some.

I am not a great artust, but I can trace really well so I would use the pens for Toy Story characters for my 3 yr old grandson. Looking at what everyone is doing is tellling me that I need to get both the Design Studio and the Gypsy. Oh great! There goes my budget!!!! LOL!!!!!

Wow! You did an amazing job on these!! I would use the gel pens and holder because I volunteered to make invitations for my grandsons 3rd birthday party. It will be a Toy Story party and I really was cringing at the thought of all those pieces!!

Mojjo said...

Love the layout. And I love the idea of creating your own background paper. But birthday cards would be taken to a whole new level with the gel pens.

Love your layout and the ideas on using the pens are too numerous to count! Thanks for the inspiration!

I love the quadrant backgrounds. Such a great concept for any type of project. I think I would use the pens on my next pet project with bones, fire hydrants, collars and balls. Love it!

Genius! I love how this layout came out. I too have a problem with layers, layers and more layers... but my kids and I love anything Toy Story so I'm sure I'll end up using the cart one day. Thanks for sharing and the chance.

What a great hop! I could have seen more, but really I'm glad you kept it short. Some hops are so long that it's hard to make it all the way.

Love all the cards and layouts we saw, and thanks for the tutorial! suekimmet@gmail.com

Becky Dunham said...

This is darling Amy! I have been dying to try your gel pens with the holder. It just looks like so much fun - I would really like to try the embossing kit too! Thanks for the chance to win the pens. I personally love to put together all those little pieces :) but I would love to draw some of the things on my carts too like the fairies from Fair Hollow and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast! And I love to color too so this seems like the best of both worlds to me. I am a long time follower of your fabulous blog.

Awsome!! I just got my first set of Stamping Up markers with a blender pen. Your layout has just givien me ideas on how I could use the mini gel pen holder with my Cricut and all my cartridges along with my new markers. Thanks a bunch for the inspiration! I can't wait to try it out but just need to get myself one of those holders LOL.

4kids4 said...

This is a great page...and a wonderful idea to draw the characters!! You did a terrific job coloring them too. I'd try to draw the ferris wheel from the Summer Vacation cartridge...I've been too chicken to cut it out!! :-) Thanks for the chance to win your pens...I'd love to try them!

Great layout. Love the Buzz and Woody you've drawn and being able to make the background paper is so cool. If I had a Chromas Creations mini gel pen holder and pens I'd try drawing Tigger and Piglet.

I love the dimension that the copics give the characters. It's a whole new way to use those carts!

I'd use the pens to draw doodle type designs to make my own background paper. I may even purposely color outside the lines!

How talented are you!!!! Wow! Your layout is wonderful! I have seen your gel pen holder and have REALLY wanted to try it! I think I would draw a sentiment on a card! But, I am thinking of so many possibilities!!!

Brenda S. said...

What a cute layout... This is my first blog hop and really enjoying reading it. Cool idea with using the pens... I've never used those, but love that you made your own background with them. Keep the ideas coming.

Sherry said...

Love your layout. I would love to have a set of your pens and a holder. Not sure what my first project with them would be, but I think I would like to try the idea you had...drawing in the details on the Disney character instead of cutting all of the tiny pieces. Thanks for a chance to win

Manhattan Mandie said...

I would LOVE to try your pens and holder!!! I would try Drawing one of the Princess figures. The cuts are so complex, especially the small ones that it would be cool to have the outlines only! Thanks!!!
