One of the few advantages of being stuck in bed is that I have a lot more time for scrapbooking 🙂 I have been able to make some more progress on our Disney scrapbook, so I thought I would share part of the Animal Kingdom layouts today.
My first Animal Kingdom page is full of memorabilia. On this page, I included our park hopper tickets, our parking pass, and a postcard I picked up at one of the shops.
One thing I am going to be doing for each of the 4 parks layouts is including a “top 5” journaling card. So you can see that in the top left corner. I used the adorable Mickey Ears Alphabet rubber stamp set and the stitched journaling card die from Lawn Fawn to make this 3×4 journaling card. The Disney Animal Kingdom title on that card was from the packaging from the Tusker House photos we bought. I also used cut some of that packaging to back the parking pass.
Tip: Be sure to save the photo sleeves if you buy any of the professional prints from the character meals or park entrances. We bought the photos at our Tusker House character breakfast. When I saw the photo sleeve it came in, I immediately knew I wanted to save it to use in the scrapbook. I have been using it a lot to make 3×4 cards.
One thing I am loving lately is using my Tonic Arrow punch to highlight certain pictures. For this page I used it to point out my daughter’s First Visit button. If it is your child’s first visit to Disney, I highly recommend asking for one at guest services or when you check into your Disney resort.
One reason I love Project Life scrapbooking so much is because of how versatile it is – especially when it comes to including memorabilia. I wanted to include the Animal Kingdom map, so I was able to put that in an 8.5×11 insert. I just made sure to fold it so the majority of the map is showing.
This next Project Life page is from our character breakfast at Tusker House. It was our first time eating there, but we loved it. The girls got autographs from Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy, and Goofy – all dressed in safari outfits. So cute!
Again, I used more of that photo sleeve packaging to make the journaling card. I love that they had a hidden Mickey in there!
I just had to include a picture of a Mickey waffle somewhere in my scrapbook! As you can tell from my Mickey waffles photo, another of my favorite techniques lately has been using my Dymo Label Buddy to make labels for my photos. I don’t worry so much that the labels aren’t acid free since all of my photos are digital and I can always print another copy.
So tell me… What scrapbook pages are you working on right now?
