DIY Disney Autograph Book

Hello my lovelies,

I must have been having a brain fart!  I really thought I had already posted this!  Ho hum!

I wanted to create a personalised Disney Autograph book for my daughter for our coming trip to Disneyland Paris in August. I know I could easily have bought her one but people were charging £10-£15 for them. While I know that this is perfectly justified for the amount of work involved but how would buying an album satisfy my crafting itch?

So I made this!

I love it!  And so does my daughter!

It was not easy to make but it only cost me around £6 to make and believe me there isn’t another one like it around anywhere.

So, firstly, I bought the album from ebay. It has 40 pages and a sturdy front and back cover.

It took me ages, but I finally found the digital scrapbooking kit that appealed from Wyld Peas Designs. It’s called Mickey Minnie and it’s just fantabulous!

I measured the album’s pages and set my Powerpoint slides to the appropriate size and set about digital scrapbooking and creating these cute pages.   Some of the pages are digitally scrapbooked and some were pictures pinched from the internet.

This is my favourite princess picture page

I definitely love a little bit of bunting…

I was hoping to keep ticket stubs to paste in with some washy tape and hopefully a few photographs too.

After all the pages were designed, I printed, cut out and pasted them into the album.  I laminated the front cover because I thought it might get a little bit ratty during our visit. And for the finishing touch, I tied disney colour ribbons onto the wire binding.

I still need to make a cross body tote for her to keep her autograph album in so that it’s ready for character introductions and I promise to post about that later.

I can’t wait for our trip now!

Bright blessings,

Mama R
