Disney Word Book

Hello Crafters,
I finally finished the Disney word book that I have been working on as a gift. It turned out better then I even imagined and now I wish I had gone to Disney so I could keep it for myself lol. Funny how all the really cool things I make I always have a plan to give them away. I am going to have to start making myself projects! haha. All the pattern papers I used are from DCWV - The Glitter Stack and Pressed Petals Printed Paper Pad (sorry there is no name brand on this pad). Sorry about the quailty of the photos, I have really bad lighting in my craft room until the evening sun comes around but I could not wait to take the photos today and post it for everyone to see!

This is the front view. You can sort of tell in the picture that I used black glitter paper for the letters and the roofs on the towers. In real life the effect is great because it really makes the book pop and gives it that magical effect that only glitter can! The glitter paper I used is from a Colorbok pad (there is only one 'o' with two little dots over it that I am unsure of how to make on the computer). Honestly I found this glitter paper to be really messy and a lot of the glitter comes off. I have another pad that has some glitter pages in it and I don't have that problem there. You should have seen my mat after cutting these letters :S

I wanted this book to be just for pictures that tell the story all on their own because it is such a small book. So I left no room for journaling and the only words in the book are the title and these on the first page. I used my fiskars threading water punch on this page (one of those investments that I have yet to regret)!

Note the Bling Mickey's. I saw these exact same blings into Walmart for $5 for a sheet of no more then 20. I went to Dollarama and purchased a pack of 100 black bling (3 sizes on the same sheet) for yep a $1 and placed them just like the ones in walmart. That makes me feel so thrifty! All the fabric ribbon through out the book is also all from Dollarama. You get 4 little rolls of all the same colour but with different designs (ie. strips, dots, etc.) for $1. You only get a very small amount on each roll but it is prefect for things like this.

On this page I used my spots and dots cuttlebug folder (you are not really going to see this once the picture gets placed but it makes it look pretty for now)! The stars and ribbon again were from Dollarama.

I found these blinged out corners at...wait for it...Dollarama. I fell in love with them but after using them my love is a bit more like. Once you peel them off their backing they get all twisted up and stick to themselves and are a real pain in the butt. You have to have a great deal of patience with them but they look pretty!

If you notice the writing on my photo mats it is because I recorded to size that the photos should be so that there will still be a bit of a border. The person I made this book for is not a scrapbooker so I thought I would help her out as much as I could.

This was my favourite page because I just loved the castle (I am a princess at heart)! No really I once was a real princess... I'll tell you all about it sometime :) I kept this last page pretty simple because I think the castle needed to be the center of attetion!

Thank you so much for looking and I am not sure how as of yet but if anyone knows how and wants to teach me I would love to share my cut file for this!
Now I am off to spend the beautiful day on the South Shore! Happy Crafting!

WOW!!! This is great. Im sooooo loving this mini of yours. Now I feel like my little castle doesnt compare. Im finally getting around to popping over to all the bloggers that showed me some blogging love on my castle mini. I did remember you offering me the addy of the DS mini series. Honestly, after I got it and updated it, I I didnt boter with it anymore. Lol. I dont have the manual, only the pdf, and although Im not computer iliterate - this prog isnt so easy to figure out just like that. So if you could send me the addy and any tips you may have, i'd really appreciate it.
Ps. I really do love your mini. I had been wanting to do a Disney one for the longest now but time and all that jazz hasnt let me.
And double ps. I was once a princess too :)(in the 10th grade)
