Hey everyone! Tiffany back again with another spread in my Disney World album using the Happy Day kit. I absolutely love how this spread turned out! It looks so magical and fun. I documented the photos of when my friend and I met Tinkerbell at Magic Kingdom. The whimsical florals and butterflies from the kit were absolutely perfect to use on this spread because they really capture the essence of Tinkerbell’s fairy garden home.
So I began by matting all of my photos on some of the pink papers from the kit (I used the pink plaid pattern and the pink with white polka dot pattern from the dividers and papers). I started with the right page first and played around with the arrangement. I used some of the outtakes the Disney Cast Members took of us talking to Tinkerbell for this page. I wanted the photos to sort of cascade down the page, adding the flowers and butterflies on either side of the photos to balance out the composition. But at the same time, I wanted to create movement, so that your eye follows the flow of the photos across the page.
I used this black and white sketched heart paper I’ve been hoarding from the Take Note kit for the background. A few of the flower die cuts are also from Take Note and I love how they matched so well with the flowers from Happy Day. All of the butterflies are from the Happy Day kit, I just had to fussy cut a few more of them from the paper, since I needed more than the three that came in the ephemera pack. I rearranged all of the elements on this page before finally gluing them down. I then embellished with a few matching enamel dots from my stash.
For the left page, I used one of the A5 planner dividers from the kit for the base. I’m really using the front of the divider for the previous spread in my album, but the back of it was this beautiful purple pattern that I thought worked well with my photos, so I left it as is and used it for my background. So for this page, I used the main photo of us with Tinkerbell. I also used this “Take Me to Neverland” image I found online and made a little cluster around my photo with more of those florals and butterflies from the kit. I placed everything down so that it felt like there was some circular movement to the cluster, especially in regards to the butterflies, and added a few enamel dots from my stash to emphasis that. I also placed the butterflies down in a way that I could then prop their wings up, giving the entire spread added depth and dimension. For the title, I used this “Hi” puffy phrase sticker from the Take Note kit, along with some white puffy alpha stickers from my stash to spell out “Tink.”
I love how this spread turned out. It’s both fun and whimsical, but also a bit dark and moody at the same time, which I think perfectly describes Tinkerbell. Everything just came together so well. I hope you enjoyed!
