Mini Scrapbooks | Walt Disney World Mini, part one

As promised here is a look at the inside of my Walt Disney World Mini Book.  I used a gold WRMK 4x4 album that is just amazing.  I used that as a starting place for a metallic color scheme.  I decided to mix in some silver and gold, as well as a lot of wood veneer.  If mixing gold and silver is wrong, I don't want to be right.  For more info on how I used google plus stories to start my album, go check out this post first.
Here is a list of the supplies I used most heavily.  I took a mini class with Marcy Penner this month for inspiration.  I didn't get the class kit but I managed to use my other kits and a few new alphas from Brighton Pier. 

Supply List:
gold WRMK 4x4 album
chipboard pieces
Studio Calico Smalls kit + castle stamp
Brighton Pier Thickers
LLP Tab Stamp set
Wood Veneer Marquee Words
Sandlot card kit paper pad
Shipping tags

Simple simple simple. Brown + black + silver. There is something marquee lettering that always says Disney to me.  That stamp is from the SC Smalls add-on.

I back the chipboard with patterned paper and made a flair mickey with enamel dots for ears.

I printed out the google story maps and stitched the flight path on in gold metallic thread.
See how google plus stories blurred a photo of the cover page of day 2?  I never would have done this on my own and I love it so much.  Plus,  I don't have to try and remember what day anything was on.

In busy albums I like the look of plain patterned paper here and there to give the eye a little white space.  I added a black Marcy Penner printables from her class since it seemed to fit (and I had a hole to cover up, eep!).  I printed for the next day divider on vellum to play up the blurred look.

I love adding tabs and flags to the edges of mini book pages.  It just makes the book feel that much more interactive.
Another connecting theme in this book is stars.  Something I use all the time anyway, but I like having similar elements throughout a mini to make it look cohesive.

These are the first few days of the album. I will continue posting pages here all week. Thanks for sharing this!
Mini Scrapbooks is a new blog series I am starting.  I have a ton of mini albums that I start.  But not many that I finish.  An attempt to blog about them regularly so I can follow through on these fun little projects.  You can see my other mini book projects here

Linked up with Paper Issues for the Admit One issue, because when it comes to amusement parks Disney is my favorite!


  1. What an awesome book! We love Disney.

  2. My dear, such a awesome book. Love how you used similar elements throughout the mini. Looks great!
    Have a nice day!
