Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Happiest Place Paper Packet + Sticker Sheet, Happiest Place Coordinating Cardstock, Make It From Your Heart Volume 3, Black Glitter Paper, Happiest Place Digital Art Titles, Pocket Plus Memory Protectors Design 1, Happiest Place Acrylic Shapes, Dual-tip Permanent Glue Pen (works great for paper piecing together diecuts!), Happiest Place Stamp Set, and Black Journaling Pen (.03).

I thought about showing you how you can use this collection for things other than Disney but I am a Disney fan and have so many pictures so I just had to go that route! I pulled out one of the Make It From Your Heart pattern books, which makes it super easy to put layouts together! In addition to Flip Flaps, Pocket Plus Memory Protectors are another great way to add more photos to your layouts!
TIP: Before adhering the acrylic shapes, make sure to decide and pay attention to the matte and glossy side so you end up with the side that you want facing up.

For the journaling, I first drew lines in pencil along the outside and then I lined it up on my Versamat and used a ruler to draw the journaling lines in pen/marker. Here is a explanation in photos, although I had erased some of the pencil marks before I took all the pictures:
