Happy Friday, friends! In a week with ideas perfect for projects with lots of photos, I would love for you to see this oh-so-clever paper contraption beautifully created by guest artist Jennie Rey! -Shimelle
Hi friends, Jennie Rey here! Like Shimelle I love love love everything Disney! I’ve been to Disneyland Paris quite a few times and in 2016 a dream came true when I was able to travel to Orlando, Florida, to go Walt Disney World with my husband and daughter. I can still feel the excitement we felt when we finally drove through the gate and entered the most magical place on earth!
When looking for inspiration on documenting a Disney trip you quickly end up on Shimelle’s blog! I love her use of bold colors and combining different patterns and I decided to challenge myself to do the same and I really like how it turned out!
I’ve documented my two trips to Florida in four (!) 6×8 travel albums but I also wanted to include my love of everything Disney in my Stories album so I made a 6×8 spread about our visit to the four main parks. A little problem with documenting Disney is the number of photos you come home with.
To be able to include a little bit more I decided to make a little mini-album flip-out per park and just stick it to the outside of the page protector.
For the mini-album flip-outs I’ve used two 3×4 pieces of patterned paper, 4 3×4 photos and a piece of white cardstock for my journaling. I cut one of the 3×4 patterned papers and my journaling card in a half-circle and attached all the pieces together using washi tape. I stitched around the edges of the patterned paper pieces, just for some texture. I stamped the names of the parks inside a speech bubble (and also repeat-stamped the date) and added those to the front of the flip-outs. I also used speech bubbles spread over 4 3×4 cards to stamp a Walt Disney quote.
For my right side page I found a map of Florida on the internet and traced it in Procreate on my iPad. I printed the map on regular paper and cut out the Florida piece and used it as a mask so I could repeat-stamp to fill the water part. I did the same with the land part using another color. I added a title using cardstock alphabet stickers and stitched those onto the page and lastly, I added a star to the map to mark the location of Disney World!
