A TsumTsum Themed Mini Album

Here's another mini book using the same album format as the one posted on November 16, 2016 Marci with Camera Project (a monthly kit) and post on November 28, 2016 Marci with Camera 16th Birthday Album. Instructions for this album were part of the monthly kit.
Unfortunately, complete kits which included designer paper are no longer available but you can still purchase the monthly kits with a few options - see this link here.


 This album was made for a special friend's birthday. For the front cover, Spellbinder Labels Fourteen was used.  The Tsum Tsum background images were a free download found on line, printed, then wrapped around chipboard for a finished look. Font used is a free font called: Chubbies. Just fill each letter with bright fun colors. And, of course, there is the Disney Free font also available on line.  This album will be filled with the Instax photos we will be taking at the celebration.
 Here's the front of the bag:
 Side of Album with hanging Tsum Tsum Charms found on line:
 A closer look at the charms:
 Inside front cover and page 1: "Happy Birthday" was computer printed with bright colors.  Stacked Tsum Tsums were available free on line.

16th Birthday Favors and Banner

A quick follow-up to the album posting: 16th Birthday party favors are made using the We R Memory Keepers Punch.  Easy and quick to use.  Popped up computer generated embellishments were also quick to make.  These favors match the Birthday album posted 11-28-16. See album posting for paper details and source.
On addition, a banner was made to also match both the favors as well as the album. Banner was easily made using the We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch.
Rosettes made using a strip of 12" long decorative paper, scoring 1/4" all the way: fold and connect. hot glue helps to secure to the banner.  Alphabet die used is a Sizzix Bigz Alphabet series.
Cottage Cutz die used to be the "separation" between the name and letters. A scallop punch in decorative paper is used for the background.
Number die is from Papertrey Ink:
