Magical Castle View Memories with Meghann Andrew

Hello there, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Meghann Andrew and I’m excited to be here with you! I’m still plugging away at my Disneyland 2021 traveler’s notebook, and using the Magical Memories collection to create it has been so much fun! Take a look at my latest spread:

I had the prettiest photo of the castle, decorated for the holidays, that I wanted to add in a big way to this page, and I wanted to offset that with a photo of our family on the opposite side, and I wanted to pull out some of those pretty pastels from the castle facade, and the Magical Memories Paper Stack and blue cardstock from the Cool Solids Paper Stack perfectly matched those castle hues.

After my paper was in place, I got to work on my title, starting with the “castle” word in the Title Builder Vol. 6 Vellum Die Cut Words. It fit perfectly on the blue strip running up the left side of my spread. I offset that bold font with a castle icon from the Magical Memories Vellum Die Cut Shapes, which added the perfect amount of contrast, and the word “view,” stamped using the Lizzy Alphabet Stamp.

Adding this family photo on the left didn’t allow for much journaling, so I thought a flip-up was in order! I grabbed my Pocket, Frame and Flip-Up Metal Die and created the perfect interactive flip-up to hold my journaling, and the “magic moment” die cut from the Magical Memories Die Cuts added the perfect tab at the bottom.

Underneath the flip, I had to use the castle Magical Memories 3 x 4-inch Journaling Tag, which added that pop of light teal, and I topped it with a Magical Memories Cardstock Sticker.

The top of the page needed a bit of love, so I added a pink Magical Memories Label Sticker, which I embellished with a banner, started with a Magical Memories Die Cut and added to using the Magical Memories Paper Stack. A little sewing went a long way to add a touch of texture!

The right side of the spread was my focal point—that beautiful shot of the castle that I snapped at the golden hour only needed a few embellishments. A vellum banner, heart die cut, the off-cut of my pink label and a black Puffy Sticker banner and a Heart and Star Puffy Sticker added the perfect touch! Now that my favorite castle view is documented, I can move on to the next magical memory!

I hope I’ve given you some inspiration to record your own magical moments in the parks!
