Summer Disney Vacation Bitty Album

This cute album is made for my friend who will be going to Disneyland for the Summer. This will be here birthday present so she can put cherished photos in them. I had made one for her a couple years ago and it is time for another one. The Oval is cut using my SCAL (sure cuts a lot) program. The size is 4-1/4" x 2-3/4"x 1/4". Customizing the oval was easy to fit the album casing. Cutting the Vellum card stock was simple, too. The 2011 is 1" thick using the Brush Script Bold font cut by using my Cricut and SCAL program. The multi color "Summer Fun" words are purchased from a local craft store attached to the oval with mini glue dots. The oval is popped with dimensionals.

Here are the "charms" - I couldn't find any suitable ones so I made them by punching 4 sets of (4) layers of card stock: (2) in Black and (2) in colors. All (4) layers are sandwiched together to achieve a chipboard weight. The 1/4" black satin ribbon is sandwiched between (2 layers): color on one side, black on the back side. This worked out great. I knew I wouldn't be able to find anything colorful like this.

Remove the album from the case to reveal:

The album cover has a simple embellishment: punched castle along with stamped "vacation" (stamp from Cloud 9) and Black oval (made from SCAL: sure cuts a lot). I love the SCAL program because it can make any size oval to fit any image.

Inside covers (page inserts removed). Page inserts have Mouse ears punched for the photos.

I was able to find this free SVG cut file Mickey image from posted on 8/22/10 which can be resized to fit the inside cover with SCAL (sure cuts a lot) - love it!!! The Mouse is finished 2-3/4" x 2-3/8".
