Now on to my project:
We are planning a trip to Walt Disney World this September. Tanner will be almost 8 and this trip will be more about rides and attractions than standing in line for character autographs.
I am creating pages for our character meals and then decorating the rest for photos of our trip.
I LOVE re-using files on my Gypsy!!!
I re-used my Gypsy files from previous autograph books I made. I changed up the designs and added some shadow images to create these pages.
I cut Disney from Mickey Font at 2.29 inches. The banner flags are from Birthday Bash and sized to 2 inches. The numbers are from Mickey Font and are sized to 1 inch.
I re-used the images from my 2010 album. Here are the original pics:
Here is a shot of the pages with the autographs and pictures!
This time I wanted something different. Note: I used stickers for the characters on these pages. I find it very difficult to cut any Disney character smaller than 4 inches because the pieces get very tiny. This time I went with silhouette shapes.
I used Pooh Font for the letters and sized them to 1.06 inches.
The pooh and friend images are from Pooh and Friends and are sized to 2.76 inches.
I cut them out in black cardstock.
I wanted to use the honey pots as banner flags. I sized them to 1.32 inches in order to fit the letters. I cut them out of yellow cardstock.
I used Crystal Palace - a previous welded design. I welded a mickey head to the letters. Inside the Mickey Head, I grouped (not welded) the C and P. Mickey heads are 1.12 inches and the letters are .65 inches.
The rest of the letters will be used on another set of pages for our character meals at Chef Mickey and Tusker House.
Here are the updated pages:
My original design had giant honey pots in the center of the page. This time, I made smaller honey pots and made banners with the character's names. I added some hexagons behind pooh and color blocks behind piglet, tigger and eeyore.
I made tigger's banner bounce!
I used Tim Holtz Scattered Straw stickles to drip honey from the honey pots. I pop-dotted the honey pots above the twine.
I pop-dotted the images on the pages. I added an extra honey pot to Pooh's hand.
This may be our last trip to Disney for a while, so I am trying to use up my stash of Disney paper!!
I had this paper left over from our trip in 2011. The back side was blue, so I re-used the 2011 papers to make the pages that will hold photos.
I re-used this file from my previous autograph books. I welded 6 mickey heads ( 1.12 inches) together to make an 8 inch border.
I used the 2011 papers I had left over to make the following sets of pages.
These pages can be used for autographs or just photos.
The last time we went to Disney, Tanner surprised me by wanting to get autographs. That was 2 years ago and I have a feeling he will be more interested in the rides this time!! I am planning on more generic pages this time!!
My last page in the album:
I cut out these Mickey and Minnie images on my Silhouette. This is the paper after the cuts were made (the paper we typically toss). I trimmed it to 7x7 and adhered it to a piece of red 8x8 cardstock. I added the love to the bottom from a Silhouette image.
This page will be the last page in the book.
I hope you had a magical time here!!!
