Princess Memories with Kim Chaffin

Hi, friends! I hope your June has you making magical memories! It’s Kim Chaffin, and I’m here with a layout I created using the Magical Memories collection and Title Builder Simply Magic products. Our family took a trip to Magic Kingdom several years ago, but I have procrastinated scrapbooking the visit. When I saw this collection, I knew that it was perfect to showcase my daughter wearing her Cinderella dress in front of the castle!

Supplies | Magical Memories 3 x 4 inch Journaling Tags, Title Builder Vol. 6 Vellum Die Cut Words, Magical Memories Vellum Die Cut Shapes, Magical Memories Cardstock Stickers 

I wanted to include a close-up of my daughter’s face, a full body shot to show her costume, and a close-up of her silver shoes. The close-up of her face, printed at 12 x 12, became the perfect canvas for the other layout elements. I decided to create a vellum journaling strip that wouldn’t obscure much of the image beneath. I used a Magical Memories 3 x 4 inch Journaling Tag of the castle to embellish the top of the strip, and I placed the shoe photo at the bottom.  

I printed the remaining photo at 3 x 8-inches. I love to mix up sizes within my albums! 

The Magical Memories Vellum Die Cut Shapes and Title Builder Vol. 6 Vellum Die Cut Wordsreally got my creativity flowing! There are so many possibilities. They could be used as a simple accent, as I did here with the castle, or these could also be used to create a title, or even layered with other pieces. I love the way the silver metallic color coordinates with the silver in my daughter’s costume!

I also did some strategic trimming of the Vellum Die Cut Words. I cut the “happy” word so that I could run it across my 3 x 8-inch photo in two lines, and I placed several of the hearts and stars throughout, trimming them flush with edges where there was an overhang. 

If Disney is the happiest place on earth, then these magical products are the happiest scrapbooking release. I can’t wait to see how you document your magical memories! Share them with us in our Facebook Group or on Instagram using the #ElleStudio hashtag!
