Disney Scrapbooking with Project Life – Day 2

Back in April, I shared in this post about how I was going to approach getting our 2010 Disney Vacation scrapbooked using Project Life products and page protectors.  I was super excited about my title page and “first day” spread and was ready (after 3 years…eek!) to get this album DONE.  Well…then life got busy, the summer happened, there were more assignments and here it is NOVEMBER before I’ve had a chance to tackle my “day 2” Magic Kingdom spread.  sigh.  But it’s done and I had so much fun putting it together.

I’m starting off each day of our trip with two 12×12 divided page protectors and then using smaller insert page protectors in between to add more room for photos and memorabilia.  It makes it easier for me to work in chunks of “days” rather than just do a continuous series of pages.  Here’s the left hand page using a Design A page protector:firstpagecollage

I’ve used a random assortment of cards from my Studio Calico Project Life kits along with items from my stash and Disney embellishments I’ve collected here and there.  My goal is to add lots of little fun Disney touches without having it be mouse overkill. 🙂

This is what you’d see on the right hand side.  You can see I have two 8×10 page protectors (one horizontal and one vertical) stacked on top of each other. There’s also a Design F page protector under those (I cut off the last column of 3×4 slots) and finally the other bookend 12×12 page which is Design D.  I was able to crop down a park map to fill the back side of one 8×10 pocket and then slid the touring guide we followed that day into the other 8×10.  I think it’s fun to have those there to reference as you look at the photos.


Below, you can see the Design F page (trimmed down a little), the flip side of that and some details from that insert.


And finally, here’s that last 12×12 Design D along with some more close ups.  The top right photo has a stamped phrase right on the glossy photo thanks to this Platinum Planet Brilliance ink.  Love that stuff!



Here’s my basic supply list (beyond the Disney themed stuff):Studio Calico Project Life Kits, 8×10 Vertical Page Protectors,  8×10 Horizontal Page Protectors, Design F Page Protectors, Design D Page Protectors, Design A Page Protectors, Platinum Planet Brilliance Ink Pad

Up next… Epcot!  (Well, up sometime in the near future hopefully.)

    These look terrific. I wish these products were around when we did Disney ten years ago, but I’m still satisfied with how my album turned out. I love seeing all the different treatments of similar themes, that’s what makes scrapbooks so great. Well done!

      Oh I know…all the “new” stuff is always so appealing. But the great thing is… the memories are documented and your family won’t care if the stickers are 10 years old or brand new! 🙂

    Wonderful layouts and special Disney touches that is definitely not mouse overkill! I have several Disney trips to scrap, and this has given me so much inspiration! Thank you for sharing!
