By Request... Disney!

I made this little red book to keep notes in. I had reservation numbers, times, addresses and phone numbers, all sorts of things went into my little red book. It is considered 'glue free' because the covers are put together by folding and wrapping the paper in such a way that the ends all tuck in and it holds together without glue! I used my Cricut to make the embellie of The Mouse.

This is a countdown page that I made as a gift for the couple that traveled with us. It's based on the countdown page made by Kathy Fesmire in the Sandylion book, The Essential Disney Idea Book. I used my Cricut again for the title and the characters and purchased stickers for the camping Mickey and Donald. I ended up having to sew the vellum down because it was the easiest way to get nice, tidy pockets that would stand the strain of the tags. The tags are paper that I ran through the printer using a Disney-like Font I downloaded from I know not where. Then I cut the paper up and glued it to a light cardboard and inked the edges. I put the eyelets in with the CAD.

I've got a few Disney 12 x 12 pages finished, but not photographed yet. It's too hot in my studio to do a whole lot of moving around. I'm sipping ice water and tapping idly on a keyboard. FWIW, Britt-ish Designs, on Scrap Matters has a lot of digital Disney-like kits and embellies. I've got a couple of her kits and when I run out of Disney paper (hah!) I'll go to doing Disney Digital pages.

that's a great idea! Maybe if we get somewhere to go, I'll do a countdown like this. Nice job!
