Disneyland Resort

Notice the printed border at the top of each page, the punch-out border glued across the bottom and the photos and journaling running diagonally between the two? This creates a basic Z shape in the page layouts, which is the natural path a viewer's eye will take when looking at your pages—entering from the top left corner of the page and exiting from the bottom right. Using a Z formation lets you know where to effectively place your page elements and adds balance to the layout.

Supplies:

Instructions:
For the Left Page:

  1. Place a sheet of aqua paper with the Mickey block border at the top. Double-mat a 7"x5" photo on yellow, then black cardstock, trimming each mat to 1/8". Glue the photo centered on the page.
  2. Foam tape the Disneyland Resort punch-out to the top right corner of the photo. Attach the Mickey Brad Buddy to the bottom right corner.
  3. Add a yellow mouse head brad to a small tag punch-out. Glue the tag to the left side of the photo. Zot a bow of red ribbon to the tag's tab. Computer journal the date on white cardstock, then mat on black cardstock and trim to 1/16". Glue the year tucked under the bow.
  4. Glue a Mickey border punch-out across the bottom of the page. Foam tape a Mickey tile punch-out to the left end.

For the Right Page:

  1. Place another sheet of aqua paper with the Mickey block border at the top. Glue a Mickey border punch-out across the bottom of the page.
  2. Mat a 4"x5" and a 6"x4" photo on black cardstock, trimming each mat to 1/8". Glue the vertical photo in the top right corner of the page, just below the printed border. Glue the horizontal photo in the bottom left corner of the page, just above the punch-out border. Foam tape a word punch-out to the right edge of each photo.
  3. Computer journal in blue ink on white cardstock. Mat on black cardstock and trim to 1/8". Glue the mouse head tab punch-out behind the left edge of the journaling. Glue the journaling above the horizontal photo and add three mini brads to the bottom edge. Glue the ticket punch-out below the vertical photo.

Cinderella

Have an empty spot in the corner of your photo? Want to add a little flair to a pre-printed page border? Don't be afraid to overlap! Overlapping elements is a great way to create unity and lead the viewer's eye through your layouts.

On this Cinderella spread, LeNae overlapped her journaling block with a small photo, glued punch-outs over the larger photos and added tags and Brad Buddies on top of the page border.

Repeating the overlapping technique in a few areas of the pages helps to unify the spread as a whole. And overlapping saves on space too, which means you can include more of your favorite photos!

Supplies:

Instructions:
For the Left Page:

  1. Place a sheet of blue paper with the striped border at the bottom. Double-mat a 5"x7" photo on pink, then white cardstock, trimming each mat to 1/8". Glue the photo in the top left corner of the page.
  2. Glue the Cinderella punch-out to the bottom right corner of the photo. Add a gold crown brad to a blue tag punch-out and glue it to the top right corner of the photo. Zot a bow of pink ribbon to the tag's tab.
  3. Computer journal a vertical block on white cardstock, then crop with 2 1/2" blank space at the bottom. Glue the journaling to the right side of the page. Foam tape a small photo in the space below the journaling. Add three mini brads to the left of the photo. Zot a bow of pink ribbon above the journaling.
  4. Attach the pumpkin carriage Brad Buddy to the printed page border, centered below the journaling.

For the Right Page:

  1. Place another sheet of blue paper with the striped border at the bottom. Mat a 7"x5" photo on pink cardstock and trim to 1/8". Mat again on white cardstock, trimming the right edge to 2" and the remaining edges to 1/8". Glue the photo centered at the top of the page.
  2. Attach the dreams do come true punch-out to the top of the large edge of the photo mat. Foam tape the Cinderella punch-out below. Add a pink crown brad above the top left corner of the photo.
  3. Computer journal a horizontal strip on white cardstock. Glue below the bottom right edge of the photo and add three mini brads. Glue the glass slipper punch-out to the left of the journaling and accent with a white starburst brad. Glue folded ribbon behind the top of the mouse punch-out, then foam tape it to the right end of the printed page border.
