Melissa needed some extra family time with her busy spring, so Shawn asked me to step in and join her as co-host on this fantastic ride, on both days. I'm more than happy to do so, as I have two terrific projects (if I do say so myself!) to share with you!
First, before we get too far into this, I want to give credit where credit is WAY due! All of the images you'll see below I found on PhotoBucket, on the albums of a terrific crafter named Mel whose profile name is "Bababearbucket". They are for personal use only, with credit/attribution. In some of the cases, I've customized by putting in my own headline, but the art is Mel's. So thank you!
For this blog hop, I made a Disney "Making Magical Memories" book:
|Finished size: 6" h x 5" w plus binding
Here's a video that I made to show the entire project:
I used Bababear's images to make a "Making Magical Memories" Disney trip journal, where you'll find journaling pages, ride completion certificates, and even coupons (where Mom or Dad pays -- don't really try to use these for freebies in the parks!) for kids to use.
I compiled these images onto pages using Adobe Illustrator and saved them as jpeg files for my use. I then printed them out on cardstock as well as glossy paper (for the coupons). The coupons are perfed, by running the edge of the coupon through my thread-less sewing machine. I laminated the front and back covers, and then bound it using my Zutter Bind-It-All.
Below are my page-by-page jpeg files, if you'd like to make a Making Magical Memories book yourself. Again, please remember that these images are for your personal use only and not for sale or resale.
