Disney Scrapbook Cover

Disney Scrapbook CoverCheck out this Disney scrapbook cover.  This diamond fold book is supposed to hold CDs for my husband….if I ever actually burn them for him!  In the meantime the cover looks really awesome.  I used a Minnie font with the pazzle to create this cool looking title.  I love having that option, but using the pazzle and cricut make pages take even longer…but the payoff’s worth it!!!

More Disney Paper Piecing – Monster’s Inc.

mikeweb2 Paper Piecing Disney characters is as easy as digging through your kid’s coloring books! Until there is a pixar cricut cartridge, I’ll settle for making my own using coloring pages as a template.

PS: These are also part of a Disney swap I am participating in.  If you have never joined a swap find some friends or a message board and look around for links about “swapping.”  People swap everything from page elements (photo mats & titles) to entire pages.  Over the next week I’ll be posting more of my submissions to a Disney scrapbook swap in whic I’m participating.

I’m sitting alone in the basement tonight trying to finish up some Disney paper piecing items for a Disney swap that I am involved in (more on that tomorrow).  It’s what’s been keeping me from the blog.  Look how great they turned out!!!

These were specifically for a “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” attraction page.

PS: I’m rocking out to David Cook…it’s what’s keeping me going when I’m on the 16th teacup. 🙂

Who doesn’t love this sweet little cuddly bear?!

I decorated these three canvas panels to use as a Winnie the Pooh wall hanging…or altered art.

I plan to attach them together by a wide ribbon to hang on the wall.

These canvases required very little in the way of supplies. In fact, the canvases I found sitting in a drawer in my craft space already!

You’ll also need:

Sandylion Winnie the Pooh Embellishments

Sandylion Winnie the Pooh Paper

Martha Stewart Glue

Super Sticky Tape

Transparencies

Brown ink

MY TIPS:

Instead of painting the canvases I used strips cut from the background paper to collage a border because it was (a) less messy than paint and (b) certain the colors would match.

I inked the edges of the background paper so they didn’t get lost when I adhered them to the canvas.

I glued one edge of the strips to the canvas and then used a super sticky tape on the edges to give it a nicely wrapped look.

I printed my own transparencies with quotes I got from the web.

I used three different embellishment sheets, one for each panel, but didn’t try to do too much with them. They have good variety and I didn’t want to have to create scenes by rearranging the embellishment packs.

Disney Castle Scrapbook Page

This simple page was easy and quick to make.  It was also a great addition to a Honeymoon album my friends and I put together as a wedding gift.

Let’s face it…who has time to make their own Honeymoon Scrapbook?  It certainly takes a back seat to children, work, and maintaining the home!!!  Most people I know would love to just get their photos of their kids in an album.  We decided to make it easy on this bride by creating some pre-made pages for her.  Together then three of us were to complete 12 two-page spreads, making it easy to get those photos right into an album.

THE BREAKDOWN:

This page only needed 5 sheets of paper: 2 blue for the background, 1 blue for the bottom border, 1 blue (could also be scrap paper) for the diamond border on the bottom, 1 white.

Additional items: adhesive, diamond die cut (I used sizzix, but you could always make your own template), decorative scissor, yellow ink, and castle embellishment.

I put the castle on a white square and inked it with yellow.  The white vertical squares are 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches to accommodate pictures.  The White diamond on the right hand side is for journaling and was adhered behind the page, but not on top to leave room to add a photo.  The bottom blue stripes were four inches.

Easy to make, fun to enjoy!
