I’ve blogged before about my approach to documenting our 2010 trip to Disney World using the Project Life system or pocket style scrapbooking. I shared my intro page, Day 1, and Day 2 of our trip and after making our second trip to the World this past December, I’m getting more motivated to get this first album done! Last week I pulled out my box of Disney themed embellishments, my stack of Studio Calico Project Life cards, printed off my photos and got to work. I’ve decided to break up my album into days, covering each day of our trip with one “spread” consisting of 2 facing 12×12 page protectors, and then any smaller inserts needed to hold all the photos/memorabilia in between the larger pages. Day 3 of our trip covered two parks: Epcot in the morning and then Magic Kingdom in the evening for the electrical parade. Here’s the left hand side of the spread. It’s a Design D page protector.
The “morning” and “evening” cards from a past PL kit worked perfectly with this spread since we did two different parks. I’ve been hoarding those for awhile and I’m glad I finally found a use for them! I stamped the major attractions we did on the morning card. The Stitch card I embellished with some DIY Cork Stamps (I blogged about this last week). To fit in a few extra photos (I actually didn’t have a ton from this day of our trip for some reason), I used a Design I page protector. It has 3 4×4 openings. I’ve never used this size before, but I’m hooked now! I love how it fits right into the spread and holds just enough but not too much, if you know what I mean! Here’s a peek at the front of it:
I added a cropped down map of Future World in the middle pocket there. I’m planning on using the park maps somehow on each spread. And here’s the back side with some Chip and Dale love:
I’m trying to add bits of Disney into my books without having them be so overwhelming that you don’t see the photos for all then stuff. I love how the Goofy sticker worked with this “Hey There Handsome” card. It goes nicely with Jack’s Goofy santa hat! To finish out the spread, here’s the right hand page. A Design A page protector:
The “evening” card has some gold stickers on it, but they didn’t show up too well here! Then I used a glittered Mickey sticker to dress up a 4×6 card. And of course some enamel dots. That last photo of my three big kiddos is one of my favorites of the trip. A little worn out you think?
Thanks for stopping by. If you’re working on your own Disney vacation album and want to share, leave a link in the comments. I’d love to see your approach!
