Christmas in July - Anything Christmas!

What a wonderful month it has been with all the fun Christmas in July projects all over the place and 4 great Saturdays of this fun hop.
I know I had a blast joining in each week and am so happy to have been a part of this. This week everyone on the hop is sharing a final fun holiday themed project. You should have arrived here from Maria at Stamp, Cut, Create!  If you just discovered this hop you can start at the top at Around the Block with Scrapalette.
For my project I decided to get a jump on my holiday scrapbooking. If you have hopped with us all month, you know my family will be in Disney for Christmas this year. I decided I would make the title page of the album I am planning for this trip.
I am going to be doing a Project Life style album for this trip...look at this cute album I had to have for this? Did you know that Project Life by Beck Higgins has 12 x 12 page holders?  What a smart company.  They have found a way to make scrapbooking easy and fun and yet they know many of us still like the 12 x 12 format. I knew this was the perfect was to start my album.
I started with my base. A stretched frame base from the Fancy Frames cartridge and this cute tree off Create-A-Critter 2. Next came my tree decorations.
I cut out a bunch of Mickey heads from the Mickey Font cart and using the Xyron sticker maker added them to my tree. I also cut a large rectangle for a photo (I did not glue this on in case I need to change the sizes when we pick pictures!)
The final touch was my title which I used my Silhouette to cut so I could have the whole thing in Walt Disney Script (yeah used both my machines for this project!!)  To say we are excited is an understatement!

Thanks so much for taking this journey with us. Remember their are some prizes up for grabs so leave your comment for a chance to win.

I am also linking up with the Hiding in My Craft Room Christmas in July Challenge that started today!

  9. I was just flipping through my Disney and friends handbook yesterday for a cool treats project I'm working on. I thought I'd make those one of those yummy mickey ice cram bars which I *LOVE* and you can't get anywhere but Disney. boo. We just went in April and I did a guide book for my kiddos. I have the Pdf for download or I can send you the word doc so you can just use a page of two if you want. Search my blog for Disney and it will take you to the post. Email me if you want anything from there. I love your cover and can't wait to see all the embellis you make for the PL format. happy day! Jilliene
