Downtown Disney- NSD

There was an NSD challenge over at Big Picture Classes to hand journal.  Since that's pretty much what I do all the time anyway, it was an easy one.

Papers: Deja Views, Paper Wizard, Stampin' Up
Thickers: American Crafts
Nifty paper clip thingee: Some men's dress shirt

Big Picture Classes: #9: Hand journaling
Pumpkin Spice: Layout

Animal Kingdom Parade - NSD

I've spent National Scrapbooking Day/weekend working on some Disney World layouts.  I've been tackling getting a LOT of pictures onto each spread.  For instance, this one has 32 on it I believe.  The trick is that no one said all of the pictures had to be UNDER the 12x12 page protector or side by side.  Makes a difference.


Ink, Cardstock: Stampin' Up

Journal Thickers, Stamps, Print paper all from Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook line: American Crafts
Misc: White Gel Pen: Uni-ball, Washi tape: Queen & Co.(?)

Pumpkin Spice: Use washi tape (holding the pictures to the front of the 12x12 protector)

American Crafts/Sweet & Simple: Lots of colors.  Yep.  Got that here.
Basic Grey: Cut out print patterned paper.  Ok.  I'm bad.  This isn't BG paper but I hadn't thought of doing that for this project until I read this challenge and cutting out some of the flowers from a remaining scrap and attaching/popping them worked beautifully for what was on my table, even if it's not BG.  Just wanted to at least let them know I was inspired by the challenge.  (I realized after publishing this that Paige also did the same challenge over at American Crafts)
Big Picture Classes: NSD Challenge #2: Use divided protectors.  Ummm... does it count that I stitched across them, sliced them up and used them as small picture protectors?  I can't see doing the "Project Life" style scrapping when I'm trying to get this many pictures on a spread but the protectors, since they're already sized for smaller photos, work wonderfully, especially when stitched to size them exactly. Favorite American Crafts papers.  These aren't my norm but I love the crazy bright colors.
