Disney Cruise Mini Book...

Warning this is a photo heavy post :-)

So most of you know that we went on our first cruise this past June. We went on a 7 night Western Caribbean Disney Cruise. (Say that three times fast!) To say that Colin loved it would be an understatement. He STILL asks if we can live on the cruise ship forever!

He would walk around the ship asking, "are we still on the boat?" When I would say yes he would jump up and down yelling, "yeah!"

Supplies: Minibook, Pattern Paper, Chipboard and Ribbon: Cosmo Cricket. Labels: October Afternoon. Pin: Maya Road. Floss: Karen Foster. Vintage Thread: Studio Calico. Half Pearls: Basic Grey. Letter Stickers: Adorn It. Foam Letters: American Crafts.

To complete this mini book I printed my favorite photos 1 by 1 1/2 in my photo program. I then picked a couple to print at 3 1/2 by 5. I mainly wanted to break each page into a day and put random photos of things that we did on that day together. I try to make a mini book for each trip so that I have the overall story of our trip captured and then I can focus on making pages for the stories that I want to tell in our main album. So far this has worked for me and helps streamline the whole process. This was pretty easy to put together and by having two packages of the White American Crafts letters I had enough A's and Y's for the whole mini.

Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow? 10 Disney Cruise Tips.

great mini album. what kind of photo printer do you use?

Amy I have an HP Photosmart 7660. It's pretty old and the only reason we got it was because our printer from collage broke and we bought the protection plan. So this was only a few dollars more.

I've only been "allowed" to use it for printing photos the last year or so. Matt would say that I was using too much ink, lol!

It really seems to be more cost effective and worth it to be able to print what I want when I want it.

I use Photo Impression 6 to print my photos after I edit them in PSE 3.0
