Lets Get Hopping!

Thank you for joining us on My Cricut Craft Room's Blog Hop!
A big thanks to My Cricut Craft Room for hosting this awesome hop and including me in it.

I am so excited to share with you my Mickey's Pants Mini Album!  Not only is this project Disney related (my favorite type to do) but I got to create it using my brand new Cricut Explore.  I had the BEST time playing with my new toy.  I must admit that I was unsure of whether or not to use my tried and true Cricut Expression to make this project and save the Explore for another day.  Though I have had the Explore for several weeks I had not had a chance to try it out.  Well, after much thought and many You Tube videos later I decided to go for it.......use the Explore.  Boy, am I glad that I did.  It was so much fun to use Design Space and the Explore cut like no other machine I have ever had.  I was very pleased with my end result.

My album closed (front cover).

My album opened. The inside and outside of the back cover are both finished like this.


Card stock from Close To My Heart
Chipboard from my stash
Ribbon from my stash
Tombo Mono Multi Liquid Glue
ColorBox warm red chalk ink
Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge used in Design Space
Brand new Cricut Explore! Woo-Hoo!!
To cut out this album I set the height setting to 5 inches in Design Space. 

I started with card stock and chipboard and ended up with Mickey's Pants Album.  The front and back covers are card stock layered onto the chipboard for strength.  The inside pages are card stock. I decided to leave all the inside pages blank.  I am unsure if this will be an autograph book, mini photo album or a Disney trip journal. Down the road I may add stickers, die cuts or photo mats to it.  The possibilities are endless.

 The next stop on the hop is: Craft Lovers Come Here.
