Disney Memories Mini Album

I made a couple of these albums for friends who were making Disneyland as a destination for their family vacation. The instructions for this album can be purchased from Cristi Maron in her Etsy shop found here.  Her blog site is called Paper Hoarder Disorder found here. Her assembly video on You Tube is easy to follow and very informative with lots of tips and tricks of assembly. There are lots of photos of this 6 page album - lots of pages that flip up, flip out, open here, open there, pull out here, pull out there. For this 7" x 7" x 2-3/4" album, I followed Cristi's Simple Stories Say Cheese paper direction and sequence to get a feel of this album. Thank you Cristi for this great album inspiration.  This is the front album cover:
 Here's the spine and back cover:
On the spine, a special Disney Diamond celebration metal embellishment adhered using Ranger's Glossy Accents.
Punch out a Mouse head using the EK Success punch on Black glitter paper: I also used a black pen around the edges of the Mouse head.
The view master is a image that was cut using my Silhouette. The heart brad is from Stampin-Up (retired embellishment). This view master actually turns and photos can be slipped in between the layers.  In order to ensure the view master was stable, several layers of black card stock was cut, then glued together. The film strip is also a Silhouette file.
Inside front cover: I added a glitter die cut Princess Castle (die is from Frantic Stamper found here).  For the pocket decorative edge, I welded together a couple mouse heads (made using circles) using my Silhouette.
