Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse! Styling a Photoshoot or Birthday Party with the Cricut Air 2!


Hi y'all! One of my favorite things to do is style photoshoots!

I have done quite a few for my talented friend Stefanie of Stefanie Photography!

**Though I was compensated for this post in product and/or monetarily, all opinions, ideas and comments are 100% my own. Please note: this post may also contain affiliate links.**

I also enjoy styling parties! When my kiddies were little, I had a BLAST! From Toy Story Parties, to Dr Seuss and of course, Minnie Mouse ones, I styled them all using my ORIGINAL Cricut machines! I still have my Cricut Expression!

Yesterday was MICKEY MOUSE'S BIRTHDAY! Happy Birthday to the most famous mouse EVER!

I thought I'd share this sweet Mickey Mouse-inspired photoshoot I styled last week for Stefanie, as well as take a look back at some of the Mickey/Minnie Inspired parties I've styled and show y'all how EASY with my brand new machine, the Cricut Explore Air 2!

I was lucky enough to receive the Cricut Air 2 to review and compare it to previous models. I have my Expression as I mentioned, as well as the previous Explore Air.

I figured I'd do it in a fun way! MICKEY MOUSE IS ALWAYS FUN! :)

You can see the rest of the photos for this shoot on Stefanie's FB page here. The sweet birthday boy was just SO precious, too!

The banners were SO easy to make using my Cricut Air 2! Best part, since I had to make a ton of  Mickey heads, I went ahead and gave that new 'fast mode' a try! Did you know that the Cricut Air 2 cuts TWICE as fast as its predecessor?! Well, it does, and it's AWESOME!

I found all of the elements for the banners either in Cricut Access (here's coupon for 10% off the rest of your order if you sign up for Access) or on the Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge which I had from A LONG time ago! Here's a special link for the Cricut Thanksgiving sale, you can buy Cricut cartridges for the lowest price of the season!

I found a stack of cardstock in the colors I needed for the photoshoot and went to town cutting the Mickey heads! I punched holes out where I wanted to hang them, and then used red and white baker's twine to put the banner together.

The front banner was equally as easy. I used a banner found in Cricut Access and cut out each layer in Design Space using the colors I wanted and font I wanted. I put all layers together using my favorite permanent Crafter's tape roll.

SO CUTE, right?!

Here's that Minnie Sweets table I did for my daughter's 5th birthday from LONG ago! Don't judge the picture, my photo skills were not that great back then!

Though I loved my Cricut Expression back then, the brand new Explore Air 2 definitely makes life SO much easier. Gone are the days of having to purchase the physical cartridges, or being limited to just whatever cartridge you owned. The ease of being able to purchase images and fonts RIGHT in Design Space make for a more fun experience! Also, did you know that you can upload your OWN images and fonts into Design Space!? Well, you can!

So Happy Birthday Mickey, and make sure YOU check out the new Air 2 from Cricut! It makes styling both Photoshoots AND Birthdays a breeze!

What fun Disney projects have YOU done?! Please share them with me in the comments!

A huge thank you to Cricut for continuing to support my crafting habit! ;)
