Princess - Layout

My daughter, Shiane..or Porsche *okie wonders which she gets called more*, worked at a daycare last fall. One day she sent me a text and told me she had a castle and then sent me these pictures. I made sure to save them because I knew I wanted to do a layout. These were some of the pictures in my Snapfish order I had last week.

Supplies Used:
Make The Cut Software
Fancy Pants - Crush Collection
Glitter Cardstock
Stampin Up Cardstock
Prisma Cardstock
EK Success Corner Punch
Various Ribbon
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Mounting Foam

Linda picked up some awesome corner punches at Ross Dress for Less one day and this is the first time I have gotten to use this one. I love the scroll pattern and it looks nice layered and mounted.

The banner is included in the files for download and while it does have the word "princess" it can easily be removed and you choose a different lettering. There 4 layers to the banner - shadow, scallop, solid triangle and letter triangle. To cut the glitter paper I flipped the letter triangles to do a mirror image, this seems to be the best way to cut glitter paper, at least in my experience.

I thought adding the ribbon gave the banner a more princess type look, and I have a lot of ribbon I need to use up *okie laughs thinking about all her ribbon she hoards*.

The castle consists of 4 layers as well - shadow layer, base layer, main castle layer and front castle layer. There are separate cuts for the door and the rooftops. I used mounting foam on the front pink layer and the rooftops to add some dimension.

If you would like to download the file for this project please see below:
keep images grouped and size at 11.2609 wide x 9.0249 high then ungroup


  1. Nice memory of a fun time for your daughter. Love the corner punch. Wish my Ross's had this one but I haven't seen it. I love to shop there and it just happens to be right on my way home from work.

  2. Thanks for the download - I have a new granddaughter we call "The Princess" so this will be very useful - what a fun LO!


  3. Nice page, Will be great for my Grand daughters pictures.

  4. Thanks for sharing. And picked up a tidbit in there...didn't know Ross had other things besides clothes. Must check it out. Love the layout.
    It is one of those layouts that just makes you smile.

  5. Love the 3D layering. What fun memories !

  7. This is really cool!! Thanks ever so much for sharing!!

  8. Very pretty LO Okie. Love the colors.
    I love everything with glitter.
    This would be great for my 10 yr. old Granddaughter because I tell her she is my princess all the time.

  9. Okie I need that castle file but it is only showing the curvey triangles

    1. Reddy I added the castle file separately. Maybe that will work. I have asked for some help in the MTC forum to find out how to convert the files appropriately to SVG format so it will work right.

  10. Cute! Love all the scrapbooking you are doing!

  11. This is adorable - what silly pictures and a great way to scrap them.

  18. Love the layout. Need to scraplift for my Disney World pictures.
    Glad you started out this post the way you did! After reading all your post for years, I was starting to wonder what happened to Porsche! I told my daughter that I knew her name was Porsche and didn't know who this Shiane was! She thought I was losing it!

  19. Love this layout! What fun pictures too.

  23. Very cute layout! Makes me want to crop today.... but unfortunately I have to work :-(.....TFS

  24. Have just stumbled across your blog, funnily enough after catching someone mention it in a youtube video about their scraproom (yep, I have a lot of scraproom envy that is for sure ;)) they were showing their embossing folder storage system! Anyways, I have just got myself a Black Cat Cougar Pro and with the few cardstock supplies I had left over from making a Baby Boy card a few years ago, I made a birthday card for my husband. I attempted to make a little pennant "Happy Birthday" and it kind of worked (I only did 2 layers, and realised afterwards I should have used a different font..) but your pennants in this layout are gorgeous, along with the rest of it too. So many beautiful ideas on this one layout, I can't wait to delve further into your blog and see your other gorgeous creations. Thanks for sharing :)
