Vacation Memories

Good day all! It's L.B. from Cool Bean By L.B. and I am so happy to be part of the Cricut FANatics family. School may be back in session but many are still clinging to summer memories. In honor of making memories today I get to share two autograph books I made for a friend about to journey to Disney World for the first time. 
 For these two books I started with 2 5x7 albums by The Paper Studio. These albums have 24 pages and are just the right size for autographs and pictures if desired.
My friend's son is very into Jake and the Never Land Pirates so I selected the adorable treasure chest off Life's A Party. I cut it at 3.75" high to cover the center photo hole on the album. To add the Disney touch I cut gold coin Mickey Heads at 1/2 inch from the Disney-Mickey Font cartridge. 
Every princess needs a castle so for an adorable little girl's autograph book I cut one from Paper Doll Dress Up at 2.65 inches high. I placed the castle on a double layer of backing from Lacy Labels(4.3 height and 3.64 height)
I have made many of these autograph books for my own daughter and family friends. They have so much room to get the signatures you want and you can always add photos or stickers to them to capture the full memory. 

Thanks for joining us at Cricut FANatics today and we hope to 
"See Ya Real Soon!"

  4. Adorable - love the treasure chest and the gold coins spilling out perfect. Oh and the little princess castle is so adorable. Love all the extra details. If/When we ever go to Disney I'm going to use this idea of getting a nice sized autograph book and decorate it. Great job.
