Has anyone done a Disneyland small/mini album that is Holiday theme. I have been trying to figure out how to put this together. We had a family vacation at Christmas time. The standard primary colors don't really work because everything was decorated for the holidays. I'm open to suggestions, anyone?

I don't use a lot of primary or typical Disney colors with my Disney layouts. While I haven't done a small album, I've used Christmas paper/lines on my Christmas Disney layouts.

The one time I went to Disneyland around Christmas, which was way back when I first started scrapbooking, I did use the very traditional Disney colors on the page. It's very obvious it was Christmas in the best of these not too good photos, but other than that it's hard to tell. I don't know that I would do this approach now, because in my more recent trips to Disneyland, I have gone away from the traditional color scheme.

What if you used a black & white line of paper and then used Christmas colors for your accents/embellishments? Let the photos be the "pop" and coordinate your accents with the photos.

I just finished a large Christmas Disney album from our trip in 2011. I used a red, black, some yellow papers. Some of the Disney papers I had actually worked well for my album. I used some of the project life pages as well. I found some red with white polkadots that I used quite a bit. I added lots of Christmas emblishments and it turned out great. It was probably the album I've the most fun doing.

Oh Carolann, I like the idea of the black and white hadn't thought of that. I'll have to play with that and the black, red. Thanks for the suggestions

Even when it's not Christmas, I don't stick to Disney colors (black, red, yellow) when doing Disney pages. Mickey shapes are so iconic, you can use them in any color and the LO will be a Disney LO.

Two suggestions:

- Paint Mickey embellishments (brads, etc) green or red and mix with Christmas papes.

- Mickey-shaped punch makes ANY colors Disney-themed. It comes in different sizes, too. I can't find any examples of Los that I've uploaded, but I've done Disney LOs that are brown & orange, turquois & red, and I think one that was yellow & green. Mickey brings it all back to Disney!!

Good luck. Post some LOs here if you can??

I tend to use typical everyday papers for Disney pages. I just choose the papers based on the photos like I do for any other layout.

I got some Mickey Christmas stickers from my LSS and used the colors in those stickers for many of the pages. But I did my album to go with the photos, so if there were Christmas elements in the photos then used those along with traditional Disney elements.

You could always use red and white; those are Minnie's colors!
