Today, I am sharing a Disney-themed autograph book. The idea behind this project was to create a mini book that could easily be disassembled and the already matted autographs could be added to a traditional scrapbook page. 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 Cricut cartridge to create the Mickey Mouse head and Disney logo for the front cover and I used the font from the Robotz Cricut 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.
