Hi Everyone, I hope you are all having a good August, whether it be having a summer holiday or enjoying the great British weather.
This month I decided to tackle part of a project that I have been putting off doing. For those of you who regularly read my blog posts, you know I have been working on my 2015 USA trip album for a while, and I am making progress on it slowly but surely. I have been trying to tackle it in events of the trip to ensure that I capture all the stories from that part of the trip. I felt it was time to tackle the Disneyland Park day, be warned this is a photo heavy post.
I had over 100 photos from this day, so I wanted to get them all scrapped, so decided I was going to tackle it using common themes on all the pages. You will have seen in blog post before when I am tackling I am project I work in stages, the first stage for this was choosing the papers. I went with Simple Stories Say Cheese III, I had a couple of bits from the previous two collections in my stash which I added to my pile of goodies.
I started off by using my Silhouette Cameo to cut out some themed embellishments and them fussy cut some of the papers. I took some time to add some stitched detail to these parts, before I even started to make my pages, to add some extra detail.
I then grouped my photos in to different events in the park, the two parades, general park shots, and photos of us as a group.
I knew that I wanted to do some double pages in order to add more photos for each event, I ended up make 3 double pages.
I used cardstock for my background and added my pattern papers and embellishments on top, this really helped to spread my stash for this project.
I explain my process of making these pages and the others in this blog post in a two-part YouTube video on my channel.
The next set of pages I set about making were the single pages, I used photos on these that had a more singular story or ones that I wanted to show case. I made 6 single layouts.
For the final photos, I used an assortment of pocket pages to showcase my photos. I liked using the different styles and again stretched my stash of papers by using the cards and my embellishments in selected pockets. I ended up with 5 pocket pages.
I did not use every single photo, and have a few I have saved of us as a group to tell other stories from the trip. I am happy that I was able to tell all of the stories from this part of the trip, but more importantly showcase all the photos I wanted.
I hope that I have inspired you to tackle a project of event that you may have been avoiding. Remember to visit the Chat and Inspiration Facebook group and share some of your pages scrapping Disney or other theme parks.
Have a fab crafty month and see you in September with more crafty adventures.
