365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#103 Disney Easter Egg Hop- Mini Album

Gif Created on Make A Gif

Hi everyone!!! Welcome to the Disney Easter Egg Hop hosted by my sweet, talented and fellow Disney freak like me...... MONICA!! I was so excited when Monica asked me to help Co-Host this fun Hop because she know's how much I love Disney! I would like to thank ELSA for making this super cute hop button, thank you Elsa!

For our Disney Easter Egg Hop our theme was Anything Goes just as long as it's Disney and Easter, pretty cute combo if you ask me! Some of us will be posting on both days SAT/SUN so be sure to stop by again tomorrow.

Now onto my project! I made an Easter mini album for my son Aidan (age 3), he was so happy that I let him pick all of the cuts it's pretty funny that he didn't want Minnie Mouse or Daisy LOL, he chose all of the boys! I made this so I can place just pictures of him and his other little cousins on Easter this Sunday. I wanted it to be an "All Kiddie" mini album I figured that it would be nice for him to look at and see other little kids which are his family.

This is the front cover, I made the entire mini out of one 12x12 sheet of blue textured cardstock. I just played around with the folds and this is what I came out with. I didn't plan on making a mini I actually made a pre-made 2 page layout with these same exact papers and I just didn't have the vision since I normally do not make pre-made LO's. I feel like I need to have my pictures in my hands since I like to crop them a lot. I scored the 12x12 paper at every 3 inches to make 4 sections and scored down the middle at 6 inches. The font is from Robotz cart, and I made my own book binding with a sheet of patterned paper cut at 2x6 inches and folded in half. All papers are from SEI.

Here's what the back and front covers look like. You can also see the bottlecap I made on the left side.

For this bottlecap Idea I orginally saw an epoxy maker at the scrapbook expo in Anaheim and Monica gave me this idea to use Glossy acents instead to save money...thanks Monica!! Well I actually stamped Pluto (my son chose!) and colored him with Bic Markers and placed the paper in the UTEE Melting Pot, then I hammered down and distressed with a Meat mallet!! Yes a kitchen tool! Well I just discovered that I can use that instead of pounding chicken, it has been sitting in my kitchen drawer for years waiting to be used LOL! I added twine behind the front and back covers as a closure and punched a whole in the bottlecap with my Crop a dile.

Here's the first 2 pages all cuts are from Mickey and Friends cart, the bunny ears are from 3 Birds On A Parade, and all stamps are Pink By Design. I also did faux stitching all all pages.

To create a circle opening I just punched a half circle with my 3inch circle punch. For the triangle opening I just folded over the paper.

I cut these tags from Sweet Treats and added some Spring looking ribbon. This is where I will place the photos and I also have the option of placing anywhere from 4 to 12 wallet sized photo's in this mini if I use all empty spaces.

BLOG CANDY!!! I am giving away a set of Peachy Keen Stamps CUTE AND CUDDLY to one lucky follower. To qualify you must be a follower and leave me a comment on both posts, be sure to check out my new Disney project tomorrow! I will announce a Random winner on Monday.
