Disney Autograph Book

This project was created for the Cricut Circle Blog's Monthly Challenge: On the Road Again, Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog's Challenge #62: Remember This and Patches of Pink's Thursday Link-Up Party.

Many of you have been requesting Disney/Mickey Mouse themed projects over the last few weeks and it's perfect timing because...in two weeks, I will be visiting Disney World with my sister and her family! It will be my niece's first visit to Disney (and my second) so I'm really excited to photograph the whole experience.

This is a Disney autograph book that I created. Once we return from our trip, I plan to create a standard 12"x12" scrapbook detailing our trip. The idea behind this project was to create a mini book that could easily be disassembled after our trip so that I could include the autographs I collected in my standard 12"x12" layouts and keep everything in one scrapbook. 

The pages of the book are 4"x6" white cardstock photo mats layered onto colored cardstock mats and then layered onto black cardstock. Once I unbind the book, I can trim off the binding holes on the black cardstock and I will have a perfectly matted autograph that is ready to be adhered into my scrapbook. I prefer using 4"x6" photos in my layouts and I almost always double mat them; so I stuck to the same dimensions for the autograph mats in order to keep my layouts cohesive. 

The top and bottom covers were made from medium-weight chipboard, covered and decorated. I kept this book fairly simple as my whole goal is to de-construct it after my trip. 

I used the Mickey and Friends cartridge to create the Mickey Mouse head and Disney logo for the front cover and I used the font from the Robotz cartridge to spell out the title. This was my first time using that font and I have to say...it looks a lot cuter in person than it does in the handbook. I can definitely see myself using this font a lot more often. All the cuts are popped up on foam for extra dimension. 

The inside covers are matted and lined with designer paper. 

I used five different colors for the autograph mats. 

The back inside cover...

And the back cover. 

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Mickey and Friends and Robotz
Fiskars Border Punch - Threading Water
Paper: EK Success Disney Paper Pad - Mickey and Recollections cardstock
