Disney Hotel Scrapbook Page
This Disney Project Life page focuses on our hotel suite. Thanks to my gracious brother-in-law, we rented a two bedroom timeshare from him for the Wyndam Bonnet Creek. The amenities were amazing, including a washer/dryer combo and fully equipped kitchen. The timeshare is on Disney Property and I won’t do Disney any other way from now on.
This layout focuses primarily on die cuts from my silhouette cameo. Its sort of crazy to admit, but I bought an original silhouette machine about 7 years ago (maybe more) but I will be finally upgrading to the cameo this Christmas. I couldn’t justify purchasing a new one when my old one still works. However, I recently found they stopped making the replacement parts. Seems like a good excuse to me! Hopefully Santa will bring me one. I’ve been good all year. *wink, wink*
It’s easy to see the Project Life pocket layouts as the only option. However, in this layout I made 2 grid cards that further divided the pockets of the page. Break out of the box! Divide the pocket card into more pocket cards. Be bold!
Hollywood Studios Pages
Below is the layout page to our first Disney park, Hollywood Studios. We had a blast and I wanted to convey that in my scrapbook layout. I am doing this scrapbook in the project life style pocket albums, which lends itself so well.
Pretty simple but I like how it turned out. As with my other projects, I tried to incorporate the classic Disney colors. The map is made from Disney’s own website. I had to photoshop a bit of the text that was overlapping the left hand side. The Donald die-cut is made from a jpeg I found on Pinterest of all the Disney characters.
The Hollywood studios title is a die-cut I made and its my favorite feature. Overall, I’m pretty happy with how this project life style layout turned out. So happy, in fact, I decided to give each park a slightly different introduction page.
I decided it was time for an update on my Disney Project Life Album (aka Pocket Album) from our epic family vacation last year. Truthfully, I have not touched this album since November. I said I was going to work on it at the end of January, but then I got really involved with my son’s birthday. However, I refuse to put away the pile of embellishments and papers I pulled out for this album. This week, there has been a feeling of spring in the air (despite the snow STILL on the ground!). I thought pulling this out and looking through the album would inspire me to start work on it again.
If you haven’t seen my Disney Project Life Style Album up to this point, you can see some other pages. As with my other pages, I am using some cards from Sahlin Studios.
I am continuing with our first day at Disney Hollywood Studios. The Great American Movie Ride gave some great photos and a nice cool break for the day.
One of the keys to a project life album is variety in how you define the spaces. For this page, I used only a half page because it worked out perfectly with my photos and embellishments. The problem with half pages is that the clear edges can be undefined. So I punched out 2 borders and glued them back to back on the outside of the half page. This gave a nice defining edge so you could see there were two sheets.
One of our top priorities was to see Disney Junior: Live on Stage. My little guy loved Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and especially Toodles. We rounded out our afternoon with the extremely fast Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and the Tower of Terror. Ok, I sat outside with Blake during the tower cause, yeah, I am totally a scaredy cat.
We ended the evening with the amazing show Fantasmic. My Dad said this was his favorite Disney attraction of the whole trip. My camera did not capture pictures very well. So I made a collage out of photos from Google of the show’s highlights. The drawing of Maleficent is hand drawn by me and my favorite feature of this page. Adding nontraditional elements into albums is unique and adds interest to a page.
Today, I am sharing another installment of my Project Life or Pocket Style Scrapbook Album. I have a few pages from our adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. As with my other Disney vacation scrapbook layouts, I used some of Sahlin Studio and Britt-ish Design cards from their Project Mouse collection.
Animal Kingdom Pocket Page Introduction
First, I have the introduction page to each day in each of the Disney Parks. I first showed this type of page with my Hollywood Studios scrapbook layout. With this page, I also used the Disney Park Map as well as the Animal Kingdom title as a diecut made with my Silhouette Cameo. The card with Donald Duck on it is actually one of our park tickets.
Attractions and Rides Scrapbook Pocket Page
The reverse pocket page layout features one of the heralding attractions at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, The Tree of Life. I added the Happy card from the Project Mouse collection and a few of the rides we went on during the day. Expedition Everest was probably my favorite ride in all of Disney. It goes backwards! However, I was not really the impressed with Kali River Rapids to be honest. I grew up with Grizzly River Rampage at Opryland and that ride was the best! But Disney had so much to offer, I won’t dwell on one ride.
The Tree of Life is actually a photograph taken by me. I added the text and the black gradient to the bottom. I thought it turned out really well. The side pictures are close-ups of the Tree. Carved from animals, the tree is probably one of the most beautifully impressive pieces of art I have ever seen.
Lastly, I have two sides of a half pocket page. This one features more punch outs using my Silhouette Cameo. Have I said how much I love that Cameo?! I nearly cried at Christmas when I got it and I never do that! My Disney vacation scrapbook album is really taking shape. I love using the project life pocket pages for this project. The memories make me so happy!
Have a great Day!
