Here's the cover of the album. It took me a couple tries to get it sized right. I always forget about the space that needs to be left that can't be seen. No designs can go there!
I've mentioned before that I do the same design every time I do a vacation album. This simplifies my process and still leaves me with a visually appealing album. For the title page, I pick a great family photo, give a big title and embellishment cluster, and a table of contents. Here's the content pages:
Most of these are a two-page spread. I do a photo and title block, then photos and journaling on the other half of the page. I alternate products between pages, and I alternate where I put the title/journaling (top or bottom).
Although I do two-page spreads mostly, I also do a four-page spread when I have a lot of photos I want to include.
For the last page I included photos that I had forgotten. Not much journaling here; I often give just a quotation that fits.
And the back cover! I super glue an envelope (actually using sticky strips) and include memorabilia I wish to keep.
As I mentioned on WCS, I decided long ago it's easier to use a single product line for an album (though I do dig into stash on a needs basis). For this album I used October Afternoon Boarding Pass. I liked the bright colors and thought they would work well with my Disney photos.
Thank you for letting me share my Disney album! I hope to still print my photos from Custer State Park is 2011 before the end of the summer (I've already scrapped our 2012 trip to Maine). For that album I plan on using October Afternoon's Sasparilla. I hope to scrapbook our 2011 trip by the end of the year, and then I can focus on 2013 through 2015 (Glacier, Itasca S.P., and our big road trip this year). I won't finish my to-do list by the end of the summer, but making progress on it makes me feel satisfied.
