Disney Pixar Blog Hop #2

Welcome to the Second Disney Pixar Blog Hop DAY 2!!!  We have a whole new group of projects and prizes for you today!!  You should have arrived from Ellen's blog, but if you did not, please go HERE to start at the beginning!

In case you get lost along the way, here is the Hop Order!
Lori  {HERE}

For the first Disney Pixar blog hop, I made a Buzz and Woody layout.  I am so glad I did those two first!  Making Mickey and Minnie was so much easier because there were not as many pieces and colors!!  I am going to show you how I used my Gypsy to make the layers of Mickey.

I am making an 8x8 album, so the first thing I did was to create a file with a 8x8 square on it.  I saved it and then opened it as a template.

When I am making a project with lots of layers, I find it easier to open up a 12x24 mat.  This can be done from the main menu (silver circle button).

Here I am selecting 12x24.

I opened up Disney/Mickey and Friends and picked my Mickey.  I selected all of the layers (including using the shift key).

They are all in my que together.

When I put them on my mat, they are all blue.  This means they are grouped together ~ and what you do to one, you do to all.

I tapped on the 1.00 height button and sized my group to 3.5 inches.

The entire group is sized together.  All of the little pieces are the right proportion for my 3.5" Mickey.

Then I "ungroup" the pieces and moved them all to the left half of the 12x24 mat.

I change the mat size back to 12x12.

Then I separate the layers by the color of paper I want to use.  At this point I am not really concerned about the 8x8 square, I used that to determine the size of my Mickey.

This is a great way to use up some scraps!

I decided I did not need one of the shadow pieces, so I deleted it with the X button.

Here is my papers all stuck down.

And my pieces after they are cut out.

I used my Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive to put Mickey together.

His face looked a little tan to me soo...

I tried to use an ink pad to tone it down, but got some blemish markes between his eyes.  I found a lighter paper and re-cut Mickey's face.

I glued on the  new face right on top of the old one (too bad that doesn't work for people!!).

Mickey will be on a page where my son will (hopefully) get a photo and an autograph.  I added a border of anchors from Life Is A Beach.

I also added a life preserver from Life Is A Beach.

I cut out Minnie the same way as Mickey, only different red paper.  This will be one of my 2-page layouts for the album.

Here is my title page to the album. 

I had to add a Pirate Mickey page, but I used stickers!  I did cut the titles from Blackletter.

We will need some pages for when we are at the beaches!!

This is such a different book from the previous 3 autograph albums I have completed.  I am still researching things (and characters) we will see and do!

And now on to the Blog Candy!!!

In order to qualify for this bag of goodies,#1 please be or become a follower and #2 leave me a comment with a favorite Disney Memory. 

One of my favorite Disney memories is when Kramer was 9 and Tyler was 4.  Tyler was super excited to get character autographs, Kramer was not.  While waiting for Tyler to get some autographs, Cruella deVille came up to Kramer and said "What's a-matter little too good to come visit me?" really loud and in character.  He was embarassed! 

Thank you for stopping by!!  Your next stop in the hop is the talented Christina.

Your cruise album is going to be super!

My favorite Disney memory is from our 2010 trip. We were in Animal Kingdom when it started raining hard. We were coming back from Rafiki's Planet Watch at the time. The drains outside of the train station couldn't handle all the rain. We ended up taking our shoes off and wading through about 9 inches of water! Of course, we didn't get pics of that. :(

Ellen Jarvis said...

Hi Lori ... My family and I were just talking last night about our favorite Disney memories! One that came up repeatedly was how my daughter Emily screamed, ranted, raved that she would not, could not go on TOWER OF TERROR. We essentially dragged her on there, she loved it and then asked to get on over and over, loving it. NOW she says she'll "NEVER" go on it again, LOL.

Next time I get a blemish can you cut me a new face? For me, not for my scrapbook. :)

Love the layouts! Thanks for being a part of this hop!

Scrappin Rabbit Designs said...

Great lo's for your cruise. I love them all.


Happie Stamper said...

Thank you so much for the layout ideas! They are great!
My fav memory of Disney was my first time in 2003 when I was more excited to see the characters them my kids were. I was the crazy lady running after Snow White!!! hahaha

Amanda said...

Very cute!! So sad, but I have never been to Disney! :( We are planning on taking our kids next year and I can't wait!! I think I will be more excited than my kids. :)

Very cute, thanks for the step by step directions with the Gypsy. My favorite memory is when I saved forever and took my son to Disneyland. It was an awesome time and a special memory I have now.

Nadia's World said...

My favorite memory is from last year when I took my daughter to Disney Land for the first time and watching her eyes light up with excitement when she saw all the princesses! She loves all the princesses and this was so exciting for her!

Love your LO! Awesome!

Sarah said...

super cute layouts!
Sad to say but I dont have a favorite Disney memory because i have never been.:(
Maybe I will get the chance someday!

Lynnbobscrap said...

I'm a new follower (just found you through this blog hop) and my favorite Disney memory happened on my first trip to WDW when I was 25. Having always been the biggest Disney fan, my boyfriend (now husband) took me to WDW in 2000. There were SO many things I wanted to do, but calling my parents from Cinderella's Castle was top on my list. They had always wanted to take me there and wanted to share the moment with me. So I did call them from the castle, but I was so choked up I couldn't talk! I had dreamed of this moment for such a long time. It was something I'll never forget. (FYI: They still tease me about it to this day!)
THanks for the chance to win!

Anonymous said...

My favorite Disney memory was the way my son 3 1/2 at the time looked at Cinderella the first time we met her in person. He was so in love.

Christine said...

I have only been to Disney twice and they both hold many memories. First time in 2004 for my daughters 4th birthday, it was a first for all 3 of us in my family and I will always cherish it.
2nd time in Jaunuary 2005 when I did the Disney Marathon for a great cause. I loved going through the parks and seeing all the characters supporting us.
Thanks for showing step how to use the gypsy

The first time we took our son to disney,I remember and have a pic of him in car passed out.I am a follower, joydee1963 at yahoo dot com

Judy said...

Since we close to Disney World, I have sooo many memories. One that stands out is when we saw a "New Mouskateers" show. At the time it did not seem like much. Now I know I watched very young Britney and Christina!

Lynda said...

You made such beautiful layouts! I hope that you have an awesome time on your trip.

I've never been to Disney so I don't have any memories but I hope to go one day!

Thanks for sharing1

Sabrina Marie said...

favorite disney memory is when me and my nephew got stuck on the top of splash mountain and when we finally went over fall the looks on our faces were priceless.

very nice layouts.

Lady Fair said...

Adorable scrapbook pages! I need to get the Mickey and Friends cart - just so many cute images. My favorite Disney memory is actually my son getting to practice speaking French at Epcot Center.

Kate said...

What a great layout. I LOVE your tip with arranging things on a 12x24 mat but then moving things and switching to a 12x12 to cut. Thanks for that!
My favourite Disney memory was riding the Aeorsmith roller coaster with my middle guy - and both of us singing Walk this Way at the top of our lungs through the tunnels. (That was the song blaring at the time.)

J said...

SO adorable:) I love the step by step tutorial with the gypsy. I am still learning how to use my gypsy and showing each step is so helpful to me. Thanks for the inspiration. said...

Sadly I have never Been to disneyland...But hope to some day...It is on my bucket list...LOL
Great Project!! TFS!!!

Sheila aka SassyLady said...

Love love love your layout. The anchors make a great border/trim at the bottom of the page.
As far as my favorite Disney memory..... well this will definately age me! I can only say watching the Mickey Mouse club as a child. You see I have never had the pleasure of going to Disneyland but I remember that was our favorite thing to watch after school... M I C.... see you real soon... K E Y.... why because we love you! M O U S E...
I haven't thought of that in years.

J said...

I had to just tell you about your page before I gave my favorite Disney memory! So my favorite Disney memory is from our first trip to Magic Kingdom. My daughter Ashely was in love with Cinderella. We went to the Castle for lunch and when Ashley saw Cinderella she became so excited and ran to her to hug her:) Cinderella embraced her in a hug. Ashley smiled from ear to ear the rest of the day.

kristyscraps said...

Love your pages and your album! Your comment about a new face is so true!! My favorite Disney moment was simply magical. I told all my friends in college that I was pretty sure my boyfriend was going to propose over Spring Break. We went to Disneyland, ate at the Blue Bayou and I just knew it was coming. Nothing happened! Then we got all cranky and tired and I was disappointed. The park closed at midnight. At about 11:45we were pretty much alone over by the lake and I had given up hope when he did it! He had a speech planned, had carried the ring around all day IN HIS POCKET, and it truly was magical! We had one of the cast members (who was cleaning up trash) take our picture and even though it's grainy as all heck, it's still a favorite! We'll celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary in 1 month!

TinaGAle said...

Fabulous layouts! My favorite memory is my daughter getting to wake Tink up. It took 3 tries but we finally were able to do it.

mamawcindy said...

Your layout is so Cute.Loved seeing step by step how you made it. Hope to get a Gypsy one day. Love how you can weld things together.
I have never been able to go to Disney world. Always wanted to take my children and now our Grand children are asking to go. Hate that I can't afford to take them. One of my fondest Disney Memories. Is going to the Drive-In for the first time and seeing Snow White on the huge screen. :0)

Wow! I would be so great if we had some blemishes to just glue on a clean face!! LOL! Maybe that is what make up is for?
My favorite Disney memory is from 1997, I took my boys (ages 12 and 8 ) to Disney World. We had the best time. I think it was our best family vacation ever!!

What's up Duck? said...

Lovely pages!
I especially love the beach ones.

I've never been to Disney myself, though I've seen all the home videos from when my aunt and uncle brought their kids. I asked my cousins to go to the haunted mansion for me, since I doubt I'll ever be able to go myself and when they got there it was closed! LOL! Irony! We all had a laugh about it though.

Lovely blog candy! Count me in the giveaway please?

Susan said...

Thanks for sharing this! It is very helpful to see how you made your cuts. I love the layout(and Mickey and Minne too.) My favorite Disney Memory really wasn't at a park but was on the way to Disney with my 2 sisters and their families (17 in all). One of my sisters had to travel to my house before we flew out the next day and her an her family were spending the night before the flight. We decided to take the bus to the airport (at 3 a.m.) It was time for bed, but none of us could sleep we were too excited and ended up singing Disney songs and waking up the neighborhood on our way to the park and ride. We all had a blast at Disneyworld too! Our first entire family vacation together!

Stephanie K said...

I LOVE all your pages for your album! I think I will be doing a smaller album for our next trip to Disney! My favorite Disney moment would have to be when my husband proposed to me in the Rose Tree Garden at sunset. Thanks for sharing and thanks for the chance to win!!

The Cropping Canuck said...

Great layouts! Would love to go on a cruise!

Your character memory reminds me of my DS was the only child in line who wanted to meet the Genie without Jasmine. He got to jump ahead so he could have his chance without Jasmine. Of course, Jasmine arrived behind him hugging him. It was so funny to watch. Ds was a good sport and I ended up with tons of great pictures.

Unknown said...

Thanks for the chance to win. I am hopping that we will get a chance to go to Disney, for the first time, this year!

Lori, your album is beautiful. Thanks for showing how Mickey came to be. Those li'l cuts are tricky.

My fav. memory of Disney is when we surprised our, then, 6 yr old daughter, by picking her up at school and taking her to DisneyLand. Grandma came, too, which made it extra special for her. The look on her face was priceless when she saw DisneyLand.

Thanks, Mary

Denise-Scrapmouse said...

Love your autograph book! Very cute pages. Thanks for sharing. I am a follower too.

My favorite Disney memory was of the first time we took our kids to Disneyland when they were 3 and 6. It was wonderful to see their huge smiles and excitement at seeing Disneyland and the characters for the first time. That memory is priceless!

scrappin_mom3 said...

HEy Lori, Kerri from Practical Scrappers here....I had a feeling I'd find you in this Disney Blog Hop :) Love your project--I am a follower, and I would have to say my favorite Disney memory is our trip to Disney for Christmas 2009--it was absolutely insane but the fact of waking up and visiting the Magic Kingdom Christmas morning was amazing (and boy was that ice castle a sight to see)!

Thanks for your Disney inspiration!


Chriss America Real said...

I love your tutorial but I don't have a gypsy, I have the Mickey and Friends Cart though...Hey! Maybe I'll win a Gypsy (hint, hint) anyway, my favorite Disney memory was being at Disney World at Christmastime! It was so magical! We went to Epcot and each world had their own Father Christmas, it was fantastic!

Creative Diva said...

Wow! This is just darling. I love it. Already a follower. My favorite Disney Memory was when I was about 11 or 12 years old and they had the Carnival or Roger Rabbit Parade and the people pulled me in to dance with the characters. It was fun.


Scrappin Time Gal said...

Love your blog. My favorite memory is taking my 4 little ones and going through "It's a Small World" this day that song brings me back seeing my kids going through on the boat at Disney.
Thanks for sharing.

Kimmie said...

I love your album! My favorite Disney memory is our Make a Wish Trip in 2008. My son was very sick and Mickey made him smile.


snoopygirl said...

Love your autograph book. My favorite memory wasn't at one of the amusement parks as we have never been able to afford to go, it was at a fundraiser we took my oldest granddaughter too. They made the girls up like princess' and they got their pics with Cinderella. She was so happy to get to meet Cinderella.

Gabriela Sandoval said...

Great Layouts.


CathyinMN said...

Your layouts are great. Thanks for sharing. My favorite Disney memories are from when we brought our son to Disney World when he was about 9. He had a blast, but he really didn't like Space Mountain. We got out of there and he was really grumpy and closed up and when I got him talking he was upset because it had scared him too much because it was in the dark. I knew he liked roller coasters; I just never thought he'd be scared because I was right there with him! Oh well.

Becky Moore said...

Your layouts are great! Makes me want to go back. Favorite memory - disney on New Years Eve.

Tamara said...

Your layouts are very cute! I can barely remembering going to Disney Land as a little girl, but I do remember going on the ride "It's a Small World". I have no idea why that stands out in my memory or if they even have that still! LOL We are planning a trip to Disney World in a few years (I've never been there and our girls are only 1 and 2 so we want to wait until they are a little older). :)

My favorite Disney memory is when my daughter was 5 we went to a character breakfast and the look on her face was so precious when she asked for autographs.

The6ofusinca said...

My all time favorite memory was when my oldest daughter and I were at D.L and it was about 11 pm and we were just about to leave the park but she said she was hungry, so we got chicken kabobs and sat to eat them. While eating them a few people walking towards us kept laughing..... I looked over and my daughter was falling asleep and her head was bobbing side to side before finally resting in her chicken kabob! Good times :O)

Scrapp'n Nana said...

Thanks for the chance to win and thanks for sharing the gypsy with us. I don't have one andwould love to win it. I love all the Mickey layouts. My one time of going to Disney memory was when i was about 10 years old and we lived in Oregon and my aunt from California had us come down and she took us to Disneyland as a child it was wonderful and fun. I will always remember that day.


Donna Scrapp'n Nana

Great project for the Pixar Hop #2! My favorite Disney memory is last year when we went on the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Cruise. The pirate of our boat called out our son's name to carry the flag with Capt'n Hook and lead the way to our boat. He was so proud and I think I took a million photos! Magical!

BethA said...

I just became a follower! I've never been to Disney :(, but my best Disney "related" memory was staying with my grandparents and watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" and seeing Tinkerbell wave her magic wand!

I'm a new follower. I love your album idea. My Disney memory is when I was about 6 and my parents bought me a set of long-play record of some Disney stories. I would just play the record and follow the stories in the album cover/story book. My favourite was Cindrella.

jessica said...

I love your LO! Who could resist the mouse :)
My favorite Disney memory is when we surprised my kids at disney for christmas. we traveled all night in our camper and when they woke up the next day we had them try and guess where we were. The fort wilderness campground has mickey ears ALL over the place, on the road, on the garbage cans..everywhere. When they figured out where we were they were so excited! It made our 24 hour trip sooo worth it
TFS your project!!

Lisa said...

I Love the pages designs that you did! My favorite disney memory was watching Belle hug my 23 year old daughter and thank her for "protecting our kingdom" Belle is her favorite character and my daughter had just returned home from a year in Afganistan! We were all in tears!

raising4boys said...

I love your layout! And thanks for the tips with the gypsy. I love the 8x8 square idea and how you saved time by laying all the colors on the mat. Thanks for a fun blog hop!

Very cute! Love all your LOs for your album.

I've only been to Disney once but I think my favorite memory was of my FIL holding my niece (about 10mo) up so she could see her sister and cousin ride the Dumbo ride. I got a candid photo of the two of them while he was talking to her that was just precious.

FUN! FUN! FUN! Is what you are all going to have! Nothing like a Disney Cruise! What a great autograph book for the trip! Thanks for joining us again Lori! guys are killing me with these questions!!!!! Do you have any idea how MANY wonderful Disney memories I have??!!!? I've been going since the Magic Kingdom at WDW opened when I was just shy of 2 years old!!! I have so many great memories of being there with my parents and my grandparents and then my new husband and now my kids.... but I would have to say the very first time we took Parker...he was just a little under 18 months and when we first walked out of the tunnel underneath the Main Street Railroad....he started dancing in the middle of the street! He had been groomed with Disney music and the thought never even crossed my mind that he would recognize it! Instant waterworks in my eyes....I'm telling ya! Pheww.....just teared up thinking about it again. Oh how I love Disney!


Laura (tweetyb) said...

What a great album! SO cute! We have never been to Disney (GASP!!) but we do love watching all the Disney movies! How can anyone NOT like Disney movies?? =)

Well my favorite memory of walt disney world was the fireworks. they put on a great show. My middle son was almost three and so entranced by the fireworks. We watched them every night. Also we had recently went to a fireworks show at home. (July 4th) so when we got home he asked me if we could please go watch some fireworks. He thought you could watch fireworks everyday after being at Walt Disney World. Great album.

Anniebee said...

Love your story about Cruella with your son! Too funny! Your layouts area wonderful... I really like cutting and assembling the characters on Mickey and Friends. They seem easier to me than most of the others. I don't really have any Disney memories as I have never been to any of the parks and have seem most of the movies at home. My son was born between the classics and the modern Pixar films so we didn't see too many of them at the theater. I still love all things Disney though and can remember watching Mickey Mouse Club when I was a child... that was a verrry long time ago!

Love your layout. My only trip was when my husbands family came to visit(California) and wanted to go but my son was just a baby. We had arranged for him to stay with a relative, Down the road I missed him so much I couldn't stop crying. Needless to say he went with us and was a perfect baby there and we all had fun. Leoda

Love all of your projects. I live in California so we have many memorable trips to Disneyland. The best one was last year since it was our first time going when Disneyland was all decorated for Christmas, it was beautiful. Our Disney World trip was also another very memorable trip!

OH gosh I haven't been to Disneyland since... well in forever! My fav memory is I have a picture of me at 16 (I'm almost 50 now!) in the teacup saucer ride spinning around and laughing hysterically! Fun!

Great layouts - especially love the Mickey and Minnie. My favorite Disney memory is when as a child I saw It's a Small World for the first time - was in awe of all the dolls and loved the music.

My favorite memory...well there are so many to pick from...I guess I would have to seeing the excitement in the kids eyes when ever they saw a character.

Wow awesome pages. My favorite Disney memory would be when my son was 2 that's the first time I took him to Disneyland and he finally got to met Mickey Mouse. He was so happy and to see him happy makes me happy too.

LOVE your mini book. Thanks so much for sharing the gypsy info. My girlfriend gave me a gypsy back in February and I haven't used it yet. I don't have a Disney Memory yet, it is just a dream but I am working on it. I am already a follower.

Wow! I love your layouts and what a great tutorial! You sound like a teacher with your great details.

I finally went to Disneyland at the age of 21. I loved the Main Street Electric Parade. I was so impressed.

Aaah, love what you've created so far - just need the pictures :)

My favorite Disney memory is when I was 8 years old living in Mexico. We lived in a border town so we could get reception from the US. My favorite show on Sunday was The Wonderfuld World of Disney. One Sunday afternoon - when my show was on - my mother decided we needed to go visit my aunt. My mom didn't drive so we took a bus. I cried all the way to my aunt's house and I didn't care who saw me. This embarrased my mom so much, but Disney was more important than my aunt any time!!

Happy cutting!

Love your LO. My favorite Disney Memory is when I went to Fl to Disney and I went into the 3D version of It's a Bug's Life. That was so cute and I was so fascinated with it I saw it 3 times. It may have been just because of the whole experience of being there or maybe it was the 3D, maybe a combo of both...or of course maybe it was because it was just a darn cute movie but I will never forget it.

This was a great idea! Let's invent a way to replace a person's face with a new cut and glue! Very funny!!! My fave Disney memory was my engagement weekend. We had a beautiful dinner at Cinderella's Castle. A storybook romance.

We have been to Disney world several times but our last trip last summer with out 2 grandsons was great. To share the things we have loved about Disney with them and see the wonder in their eyes. Dumbo was such a fun ride for them. I love the idea of fixing Mickey's face. It gives it so much demension I may consider that idea with my future cuts bobos or not. jlsateplusdotnet

Amy said...

I love your layouts (and the 'face-replacing' too!!)... Great job!! :)

My favorite Disney memory is one when we surprised my kids with a character breakfast... We had so many laughs that morning -- The kids thought it was fantastic to see Mickey and Minnie and more right there with them!! Great times!! :)

Oops! I forgot to leave my favorite Disney memory!
I have a lot of family that lives in Orlando, so last summer my family went to Disney and Ebcot. It ended up pouring on us for a large portion of the day, but we got to have a private meeting with Tinkerbell and the fairies because my cousin works for Disney! It was awesome! :)

My favorite Disney memory was when I was 12 years old and I went there with my family and we got stuck on the Pirates of the Carribean ride right near where the cannonballs were going off we were stuck there for a half an hour when we got going again.... we were deafened and we were even thought that happened it didn't matter we were all singing a Pirates Life for me.... We all had a good time.

Wonderful layouts...and a super tutorial! Love how Mickey got himself a face-lift!! :-) TFS! One of my favorite Disney memories is of my son (4 at the time) who couldn't wait to meet Pooh. When he finally did...he reached up, pulled Pooh down by the nose and gave him a big kiss on it...priceless! :-)

Your layout is nice and simple - just the way I like them! The beach pages look great too! I liked your quick thinking to solve the face problem. Thanks for sharing.

lmshaggard said...

Such a cute idea and such wonderful instructions. Thank you for taking the time to share them! One of my favorite Disney memories was from my oldest son's first trip to WDW (he was 19 months) and we were watching Wishes at the MK. When the fireworks were done, he started to cry and signed "more,more,more" over and over again. It was priceless! Thank you for sharing!

Barbara said...

Love your layouts! Especially the beach ones. My favorite Disney memory is the Cruise/Disneyland visit we went on in 2000. The boys were 11 and 12. Even at that age it was priceless to see their faces when we walked into the Magic Kingdom! Thanks for an awesome blog!
