Hi friends and welcome back! Today we are hanging out on Main Street where I will be documenting the fun of this classic location AND the views of the Castle from here! Let’s go!
For this page, you know I had to use Project Mouse Main Street! What struck me in all of my photos was how brilliant and blue the sky was, so all of my product choices are designed to contrast against that. I will give more details about how I accomplished that.
As a mark of consistency, I again used the title card from the Main Street kit. This one I love especially because it has Main Street USA across the bottom and this tells us exactly where we are at a glance. I added a very simple Entrance word art at the bottom, pointed directly at the Castle photo.
Underneath the title card are two cards I created myself using the Main Street Artsy pack. These packs are under-rated gems, especially for pocket page scrapbookers. They provide a super fun opportunity to make your own unique journal cards! For these, I began with a blank white canvas and layered the scallop element and the polka dot pattern directly on top.
I couldn’t believe I had not taken a photo of us with our Magic Bands yet! But we did that sometime during this day, and so I included it here. I added the circle bit with a bit of foam tape and added the heart sticker from Elle’s Studio.
The file tab card (3×4) is also a card I made myself. Again I began with a blank white canvas in Photoshop and left space for journaling. I do hope you will be inspired to play around with creating your own journaling cards! It’s so much fun and the best part is they will be unique to you!
The right hand side features another enlarged photo, the 6×8 of the Castle at the end of Main Street. This is my all-time favorite view, even though I am slightly obsessed with capturing ALL the views from ALL the different vantage points around the parks! This is something Disney does so well – you can spot the Castle on Main Street, from the People Mover, from the Monorail, coming out of Fantasyland, and so many other places. I added a word strip plus washi tape at the top, along with the chipboard rainbow from Elle’s Studio.
There’s another journal card I made using some of the die cut elements. I added two of the banners across the top to look like the decorations on Main Street itself. That left me with perfect space for journaling!
After I finished this layout and was sliding the cards and photos into the pockets, I realize just how crooked this chipboard strip is! Ha! I will probably end up re-printing that photo so I can fix that.
At the bottom I used the map card with that lovely heart. I left this card as is. Even though I debated whether I should add anything to it or not, in the end I decided it makes its own statement just as it is. The Castle is at the heart of it all, and that is precisely what this card conveys!
Alright, we have arrived at the park, taken a few minutes to orient ourselves, let’s see what adventure lies ahead!
