Well, it finally happened I was asked to make a scrapbook. My Brother, Sister in law and Nephew went on a Disney Cruise. Not knowing what I was getting into I said yes I would make it. It was cool my brother gave me about 50-75 photo’s EASY PEASY-right? Than he dropped the bomb and and said I have about 300 to 400 more photo’s to give you and my brain is FREAKING out. Ok! where do I begin? I ran out to find Mickey Mouse paper and I found a kit from Pinecone Press (it was for making cards) I found washi tape from Queen’s Co. and cute paper cut outs from the Paper Wizard. This was my first attempt in making a scrapbook for someone else, I’ve made pages (many pages)but not a book and not for someone else. My butt was on the line. I had the theme no worries there but, I wanted more with it, since they were on a cruise. I wanted the book to feel like it was a movie going on while in the cruise. I found this super cute photo album from Michael’s and that started me on my adventure. Thank Goodness for Sizzix’s Framelits, I can cut a perfect circle WHEW!!!!!! I laid the circle on top of the photo and ran it through my big shot. Boom done.with the cover haha…
What to do with the pages I found this super cute paper that had an audience sitting in a movie theater and it came to me- It was as if they were in a movie So, I used my local scrapbook store dies to start cutting out letters I wan’t different sizes. I found tickets (admit one) with several other movie theme extras and place them throughout pages. The Paper Wizard had some great pieces that I found while at the Scrapbook Expo. The kit I picked up from Pinecone Press (I used the papers and saved the chipboard book for later). Many companies representing at the expo had lots of Disney things that help me get these pages put together.THANKS. All of my 12 x 12 cardstock is from Stampin Up! It has a nice feeling and holds up real strong. I also used stamps(lettering) and a few punches from Stampin Up!
I used Sizzix Serif Letters and my big shot to cut letters (they are all cap size), I enjoy creating my own background paper I stamped stars and buckets, crabs and shovels. A pennant punch and a three spiral punch- which helps to look like a film strip. I cut out a wave and stamped catch a wave and smeared it to make it look like it was wet
The flowers are part of the papers that came with the Disney Pinecone Press kit. My spiral punch allowed came in handy to look like a film strip
The Mickey Mouse head is a combination of two (2) punches from Stampin Up
The Large Mickey Mouse head was from Accucut and I cut it out at my local scrapbook store.
