Hello everyone, I am very happy to share with you my second project using the Graphic 45 Safari Adventure collection! Here’s a file folder full of photos from a recent trip to Disney, specifically to one of my favorite parks: Animal Kingdom.
This Disney trip was a birthday surprise from my daughters, and boy you can say that I had a blast! I had so much fun that the same weekend I sat down and made this project to hold my photos so I could remember every fun moment.
For this project I used a Tim Holtz file folder. I love using Tim Holtz file folders to document quick trips or events from which I don’t have a lot of pictures, but that deserve their own special project.
Of course right away I knew what paper collection I wanted to use for this project: the amazing Graphic 45 Safari Adventure. This paper collection was just the perfect match for my photos.
The cover of the folder was just decorated with a 3×4 ephemera card from the collection and some fuzzy cut flowers and other images. I also used paper flowers, raffia and mesh to add dimension.
The inside pages are made with different flaps that create a cascading effect when seen together.
Each inside page is very different from the other. Each one has a theme depending on the photo or photos that they hold.
Sometimes the photos are the main attraction.
On other pages the fuzzy cut images are the focal point.
I love documenting in my albums. I love going back and reading what I was feeling at the moment the picture was taken. It is definitely so true when you say that every image has its story.
If you are not a fan of your own handwriting like I am, you don’t have to stress over it. Sometimes I type my journal entries and then just I attach them with adhesive.
I also used lots of tags and floral ephemera as decor.
But the images from the collection seem to steal the spotlight all the time.
This project was so quick and easy to do, that now I am planning to do versions of it for all the Disney parks. I will see you soon with more new projects and posts!
