This week on the blog we're sharing Kristina's Disney mini album! She's taken two of our workshops, Scrapbooking Family Vacations and Divide & Conquer, and combined what was taught in them to record her family's vacation memories in a mini book.
Here is a little video we put together introducing the series and giving you a peek into her album:
From Kristina, "This is a spot that we have traveled to every other year (and sometimes in between) for more than a decade and so, the backdrop of this vacation is well known to those who will view this album---my family. This book is really going to be a documentation of OUR story --- the moments and the memories that we loved and I don't want us to ever forget.
I listened to and watched all of the videos included in Nancy's Scrapbooking Family Vacations workshop before I left. She has a whole section on Disney vacations, with very carefully and thoughtfully laid out plans for documenting that special trip. Nancy gives great advice on what to look for and how to document as you travel, so you don't have to think too hard as you are on vacation. For me, it was nice to see how someone else organized the trip and the recommendations for how to record it later.
A mini book format was definitely needed for me to complete this.
The pocket-album style is one that I used before for previous Disney trip albums where I told the whole story and did the whole shebang. Its a huge album. I love it.
The mini pocket album concept as demonstrated by Lisa in the Divide & Conquer workshop is absolutely perfect for this project. I love the pockets and it allows me to diversify what I include and how I include it. Using her 3 main workshop concepts, I was able to quickly create an album of a trip! I am so proud to have completed this as swiftly as I did! I love how the workshop kept me on track to only telling the main stories that I want to tell and not wander off, or include things just because it's pretty or cool. I didn't have a lot of room and I needed to make sure I told the real stories that were the most important. And I was able to do that."
Look out for the full reveal of the album as well as additional posts and tips from Kristina later this week!
