Back in 2010 we took our first family vacation to Disney World. It was a fantastic week and we have so many great memories from the whole experience. We also have LOTS of photos. I’ve been pretty intimidated on how to tackle preserving those memories and photos in a scrapbook album… do I do a layout per day? Per ride? Per photo? Yikes! So, the photos have been just sitting on my hard drive, the memorabilia stuffed in a box, and lots of cute Disney scrapbooking embellishments remain in their packaging. Until a few weeks ago when I finally decided HOW I wanted to approach this album. PROJECT LIFE. I’ve been using the Project Life system of pocket scrapbooking for monthly memory keeping and decided it would be a perfect way to document our trip. I can still use my cute Disney themed goodies, stress less about the design of the page, focus on the stories, and showcase lots of our photos. Perfect!
I’ve only just started this project, so I have just my title page and first spread to share today. But if you are interested in following along in my progress, I’ll share each spread as I finish them. My plan is to do a double page spread (Style A page protectors) for each day of our week there, with the freedom to add in smaller page protectors in between for more space when needed. For my title page I enlarged a photo I had taken of Cinderella’s castle at Magic Kingdom and divided it up to fill in the pockets. The title is just typed on the photo at a low opacity.
I used the freebie character silhouette cards found here from Project Mouse. They have some great designs (digi/printables) if you’re interested in completing your Disney album in this style! Other supplies are from my SC PL kits and my stash. I also included a map of Downtown Disney with our favorite shops/restaurant highlighted with stickers.
Let me know if you have any questions! Have a great weekend.
