Disney Autograph Book

 So here it is!! The Disney Autograph book ( 1 of 5) that took me months to complete..but oh so worth it! I had other tourists stop me and ask me where I got them ! once I told then that I made them they were awe struck..and so were the characters! Pooh and Tigger gave me a thumbs up sign when they saw their pages! LOL

I used my Bind It All to bind them. The acrylic covers, black pages and O wires were bought on the Bind It All website. the O wire is 2"..the biggest they make!

Here is the cover ~

Cinderella is Emilee's favorite Princess.She is a chipboard piece from EK Success. The titles were cut from Mickey Font and welded together on the Gypsy.

Each page is set up the same way..One side is a character and a stamp photo frame cut from French manor cricut cartridge. The other side is a signature block and the name of character. Mickey was cut at 4.5" but the more intricate characters have to be cut larger at 6.5". Most of the Character piecings I use Recollections paper. It's the perfect weight of paper, it doesn't tear and cuts cleanly then the thicker Bazzill.

Oh My saying was cut from Mickey font cartridge.

As you can see..we didn't get all the signatures..the first few days we were
in Disney it rained so the books stayed in the car. I was afraid they would get wet.

The fairies and princesses were cut at 6.5". I used a white jelly roll pen to paint the whites of the eyes then colored them in with Copics..However, the copics after a while bled into the white. So I would use a pigment dye ink instead of alcohol ink.

I decided to go with the busts of each of the Princesses because the dresses would have been way too big to fit onto an 8x8 page.

Repunzel and Tiana are stickers..they are not on the Cricut Princess Cartridges.

Pattern Papers I used were from the following:
Princess 8x8 paper pack ~ EK Success
Mickey Paper Pad 12x12 ~ EK Success
Magic symbols ~ Queen & Co.
Magic Polka Dots ~ Reminisce
Magic Zig Zag ~ Queen & Co.
Purple background paper ( used for fairies) I bought from Disney a few years ago not sure of the manufacturer.

I loved how they turned out!! If you have any questions let me know!

I forgot a few things! LOL I used an EK Success punches called Abstract Flower Edger and Swiss Cheese Edger. Both can be found on the EK Success website.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists ~ Pearl, Lemongrass, Bronze, Frost, Vintage Pink,Marshmellow Chalkboard Mist, Icicle Glimmer Glaze (wings of fairies)
I used most of these colors on the names of the fairies and princesses. I also used Copic markers E21 and E00 for the skin. It's way easier to cut the flesh cuts on white paper and color them in :)
Cricut Cartridges used :
Elegant Edges ~ cover
Mickey Font
Mickey and Friends
Pooh and Friends
Toy Story
Disney Classics

Tinkerbell and Friends

I did go onto the Disney parks website and see what characters we would see and went from there..We did not get to meet all the characters while we were there. Out of 29 characters I made we got 15 autographs. Next time I think I will make the pages and add the characters after we get the autographs!

  1. Do you know how I can get pre made die cuts? I don't want to have to buy the cartridges for a one time use?
