My Walt Disney World Album is Complete!!

We just made it back from Disneyland last weekend and before we left I was determined to finish my book from our last vacation to Walt Disney World in (gulp) 2005!  Alas, it is finished and here they are.  Be on the lookout for new layouts from our recent trip to Disneyland!

I found it was easiest and quickest for this project to use a set of coordinating papers for most of the pages.  You can see how I did that below.  The paper is a retired CTMH paper pack.

Cardstock from my stash.  Embellishments by EK Success or unknown.

Overlays

Although I do not use them very often because of their cost, overlays can add a lot to a layout.  On the page below I added pictures underneath the overlay and on the top I added the title and chipboard flower.  I then stitched the overlay to the background paper to hold everything in place.

Title Pages

I use title pages to divide up my books.  I organize my pages in chronological order.  The title pages serve as a marker for myself and those that look through my books.  It also saves me the worry of fitting so many pages in a book.  I use 3D-ring binders so the pages can be easily moved around, added, and removed.  When I fill a book I just start on the next one, instead of having one book specifically for 2007 and another for 2008 and overfilling them or running out of room.  Title pages can be very simple and are a fun way to use up embellishments and paper that you’ve been struggling to find a use for.
