Smiles from Ear to Ear! by Mik Godinho

Hello friends! It’s Mik here from Papermiks on the blog today!

I'm super excited to share this fun flipbook with the fantastic Say Cheese Main Street Collection.

Going to Disney is a dream of every child, teenager and many adults. My niece went to Disney, but she still didn't have her mini album from this amazing trip that was so fun and full of dreams made real. So, at the moment I saw the Main Street collection, I knew that I would make an album for my niece Helena.



Do you know that the Say Cheese Main Street collection has two matching flipbooks?

They’re on 4x6 and 6x8 size. Here I decided to use the 6x8 size. 

The cover is so beautiful that it wouldn't be fair to hide Mickey, so I decided to make a shaker. That way the ears would keep showing and I could give the cover an interactive touch. I love this!

I filled the shaker with tiny sequins and decorated with additional foam sticker , chipboard and brads




Inside the album, still on the cover, I made a pocket where I added photo flip pockets and chipboard frames.

I like to add pockets on the covers to store more photos or journals. The photos show some moments, but did you try writing more about your photos? To read about how we felt at the time of the photo helps us relive every moment and this can be magical! 





As you already know I love to make interactive pages. So, to allow the pocket page to interact with the paper page I made the back with, I removed two pockets from the first page. I added a clipboard “Big Smiles” on the pocket page and now we have an interaction between the two.



This time, I added cut files inside of my album. I cut and laminated it. Do you also add cut files in your albums?




I mixed the paper pages with the pocket pages that come with the flipbook which gives me more space to fill my album with lots of pictures.


I had a lot of fun creating this album. Say Cheese Main Street is a super fun collection. I’m sure that will help you to document your Disney’s vacay in a happy and easy way.


I hope you’ve got some inspiration from this idea and enjoyed it!

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!
