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.)

Scrapbooking Disney Using Project Life

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.

Here’s my first day layout.  I used two style A page protectors, an enlarged 6×11 photo (I cropped down a 6×12 protector), and then a smaller insert that holds our tickets. wk1pg1 wk1pg1detail wk1pg2

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. 🙂
