Today I will be discussing my first Disney Layout.
This is the opening page of my Disney Scrapbook. I had a difficult time with this one. I wanted it to look more…decorated/embellished…but after adding the large mouse ears, everything I tried made the page feel too crowded. Therefore, I settled on keeping it simple.
To make the ears, I used my Cricut Expression 2 to cut out 3 circles (1 large and 2 smaller ones) and did a bit of estimating and cropping as I tried to make it look like Mickey ears. To me, the black and black made it difficult to distinguish the “head” from the “ears.” It looked like blobs on the page. To solve this issue, I took a white colored pencil and added highlights. This helped significantly in making it look like Mickey’s ears.
Moreover, I found the sparkly “2014” at Walmart in a pack of 3 (red, white, and green colors) that were on clearance. I believe the 2014 pack is part of their graduation party section. Goes to show you can find a lot of stuff to use on scrapbook layouts that aren’t necessarily considered a part of scrapbooking!
The large “Our Disney Adventure” 3D sticker is part of the Disney Chipboard Stickers, Mickey Family Titles pack by EK Success (Disney), which can be bought at Michael’s, Joann, Walmart, etc.
The pattern paper is by We R Memory Keepers. It is the Basics Collection – 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper. Item#: 62205-5 (Yellow Dot); 62203-1 (Red Dot).
Coming soon, Disney layout #2!
