A Week of Magic: A Super Special Moment with LeeAnne Jones

Welcome to day two of our “Week of Magic” party, featuring the most magical projects from our design team created with the Magical Memories Volume 2 and Title Builder Vol. 6 Simply Magic collections! Today our own LeeAnne Jones is sharing a 6 x 8-inch pocket page spread that we think is so special, with a truly magical photo to record! Let’s take a look!

Hello, everyone! It’s LeeAnne here with a 6×8-inch scrapbook spread using Elle’s Studio’s exciting new release: Magical Memories Vol. 2! This collection is full of bright colors, cheerful sentiments, and whimsical embellishments. It truly is magical!

Supplies | Magical Memories Die Cuts, Magical Memories Cardstock Stickers, Magical Memories Cardstock Label Stickers, Magical Memories Puffy Heart and Star Stickers, Warm Puffy Heart and Star Stickers, Magical Memories Paper Stack, Warm Solids Paper Stack, Magical Memories Vol. 2 Metal Die, Title Builder Vol. 6 Simply Magic Metal Die

This collection is perfect for documenting a Disney trip, of course, and I had many to choose from. But when I saw the grey, geometric-patterned sheet in the Magical Memories Paper Stack, I knew exactly where to start: a photo of my daughter waiting for It’s A Small World, her hair in ringlets down her back and the iconic geometric pattern of the ride in the background.

I went all-in on that pattern. I used the grey paper as a guide for designing a grid of shapes. Pulling from the colors of the photo, I used other sheets of Magical Memories paper: the teal castles, black sparkles, and yellow stars—plus a warm purple solid from the Warm Solids Paper Stack to bring in the color of my daughter’s Rapunzel gown. Once I secured all the pieces, the design looked promising, but flat. So, I decided to embellish each shape with embroidery. It lends texture and dimension and also gives the page a bit of a patchwork feel, which is fun. 

For the title, I used the script “magic” from the Magical Memories Vol. 2 Metal Die. I cut out three from black cardstock and glued them together, forming faux chipboard. “Super Special Moment” is from the Magical Memories Cardstock Stickers; I just cut it down to a thinner-size strip, so it didn’t cover as much of that scripty “magic.” Note: This side of the layout is sized to be outside of the page protector, giving it a larger surface area and the ability of the viewer to touch all of the different textures. 

For the journaling block, I wanted to echo the pattern of the other page. Thankfully, the Magical Memories Paper Stack includes a sheet with several cut-apart border elements including these yellow and teal pattern strips. They’re serving a second purpose here, too: hiding the adhesive I used to glue down the vellum. A sprinkling of die cuts and puffy stickers added the finishing touch. 

That’s it! I can’t wait to see how everyone uses the Magical Memories products. I know I’m looking forward to my next project. Happy documenting!
