A Year's Worth of Magic
Hello everyone ! It's Mindi here with you today. I am so excited to be sharing some pages that I have created for my Disney album. We recently had annual passes to the park and although I have already scrapped some photos from our trips I wanted to create an entire album. The thought was to have a place that I could document our fun and magical year. The new Say Cheese 3 collection was the perfect solution. Simple Stories has a darling 6x8 album that has a Mickey Ear shape on the cover with lots of red and white polka dots. I typically don't embellish the fronts of my albums so that I can store them easily. But I do love this album and it's darling Disney theme.
Before sitting down to start putting this album together I had a few thoughts. I knew I wanted it to go in chronological order. From our first trip to our last. Then to break it down further I wanted to it to have themes or events. I started with this entry page. I used one of the fun pages that comes with the album and added a few embellishments to it. The large castle on the bottom was the perfect place to add the year and some other embellishments.
On the next page I added a photo of all 5 of us together. This was our first family photo of the year and I think it was a nice beginning to the album.
Opposite the big family photo I have a pocket page protector with a 4x6 journaling card. I wanted to give a brief summary of what this album is about. I also have a photo of Noah's old Mickey hat that I took on Main Street when we first arrived at the park.
These photo flip ups are great for adding in extra photos. I added one here and was able to add in another photo and a filler card. To help aid the flip up page I added one the adorable clips.
I am going to set up my album with a few things in mind. As I mentioned earlier I am going chronological. These next set of photos are all from one place at the park, Cars Land. There are so many ways that you can organize your album. By day, by theme park, by events, ect. Whatever works for you.
When you order the Disney SN@P Decorative Binder inside are some great decorative pages. I used this red and white polka dot page to add in some journaling and extra photos. It was really fun to create this page and have it outside of the page protector. I also love the interactive aspect of the page.
These types of pages are perfect and fun to add into your mini albums. They break up the pockets and the possibilities are endless. You can use it to add your stories or fill it with photos. Here is a look at the whole inside of this page. I added a strip of photos and then added some journaling on the right side. I used my typewriter for this page but you can also hand write as well. You can kind of tell that I am still getting used to using a typewriter with some errors but I am ok with that. I embellished it a bit here and there. I used some washi tape on the left side of the photo strip along with some clear stickers on the photo strip.
I had so many fun photos from Cars Land and I made another photo strip and added it on the backside of this page. I used some more washi tape on the top and added in another clip for a cute look.
This is what the backside of the polka dot page looks like paired with the other side. I love that it is a smaller size and that you can see multiple pages around it.
Before I had put this journaling page together I had put together the next set of pages. You'll see them in a minute. I had this 6x8 big pocket page to work with. So I cut down this 6x8 page that has the lines in it like regular paper does. It originally had holes in to put right into your album. I trimmed them off so that I could add it into my page protector. I had one more favorite photo that I wanted to include and so I added it onto the bottom part of my page. My typewriter came in handy again to get my journaling onto the page easily. I added some simple embellishments to the top portion of the page and also to the photo. The scalloped edge there under the photo is from a journaling card that I cut up. Thought it could use a little something underneath the photo.
One last set of pages that I want to share with you here. I have always been a fan of big photos. And I had this great photo of the castle. So I made it stretch over both sides of the album.
This photo of the castle has lots of great spaces for embellishing. I cut down one of the 3x4 cards and added it to the left side of the photo. On the other side I added some journaling and then finished it off with some embellishments. These chipboard pieces that have a watercolor look are my favorite. I added one of them to the top of my journaling.
I can't tell you how much fun I had putting some of my pages together in my Disney album. I didn't want to stop. Ha Ha. I hope that you have gotten some inspiration for an up coming Disney album or another theme. Have a great day everyone and thanks for coming.
