We may be heading off to visit Mickey & Minnie in a week and I am trying to figure out how I want to scrap photos and autographs this time around. When we went in '06, I simply cut white CS into 6X6 squares and had one for each character to autograph. I then scrapped it butted next to the 4X6 photo of the kiddos with said character. Well, I completed each of the {3} kiddos their own album of that trip and plan to do the same this time around {4 kiddos now}. I am wondering how the PL format would work for this...anyone used that concept for their WDW trip? If so, would you be so kind to share info, advice, pics, etc? TIA!!!

I've never even been, but hope to one day. I just wanted to pop in and say that is a fabulous idea about the 6x6 autograph cardstock sheets.

Also, if you go to the free videos section and search under Scrap Your Stash, you'll see a video by Nancy Damiano (?). She made a PL style album for her Disney trip using SS Snap line. It's pretty cute. She made little Mickey Mouse heads out of enamel dots.

I don't know if you saw this, but Nancy Damiano did a video using SNAP products for a WDW vacation:

After watching her video I decided that's how I'm going to do our Disney vacation pictures.

I have not done that with PL but I have seen a Smash album done with pics and charactors signatures. If interested you could check out youtube Disney Smash autograph book or google Saturated Canary Disney and the 2nd option Smash for autographs and she has a vid.

I'm about to start one for our upcoming Disneyland trip...there's some stuff out on the web...I think there are something like two people who have posted stuff on Pinterest...and with regard to Project Mouse...I've purchased some of their stuff....very cool...

That Project Mouse looks awesome...question how do you use those do you put thwm in photoshop and print to size...I downloaded the free mickey paint chips and when I click to open one it will pop open a screen and wants to print full size...

Has anyone everyone brought from this company? How do you print them and is it hard to do I have photoshop elements but have no idea how to use it...

Sorry for they hijack...We are going soon to Disneyland and I have been trying to figure out how to do it PL style...I am planning on taking either 3x4 or 4x6 cards for character signatures (thinking 4x6 may be easier for a lot of them to sign though..Thanks for asking the question Misty!

I haven't yet, but I definitely plan to. DH & I had annual passes in 2010. We ended up taking 13 trips to WDW that year, so there are TONS of pictures to be scrapped. The only way I would ever be able to tackle it is using divided page protectors.

I have decided what products to use yet. I have debated quite a few options....Simple Stories Sn@p, Project Mouse Digi Supplies, or Project Life Honey kit (coming in May).

I was going to suggest Project Mouse too. I'm not a digital scrapper but I print off digital stuff all the time. I bought that kit last week and printed out all the journaling cards on semi gloss paper - most of them are filler type cards - and they look so pretty - the colors are so rich like that. We went to Disney in May and I'm ready to get started on the pics now PL style You get the cards as individual files but also as ready to go printable PDF's and that's how I printed mine. Super easy.

Thanks so much for recommending paper mouse.
I've been to Disney twice (many many years ago) and I've been sorting my pics to put them together in an album PL style. This kit is just perfect.

I think the PL style is a great idea for Disney. If you pick one page protector style, like all A pages, and remember to hold the camera landscape style filling the pockets will go very smoothly.

I think I saw one time on BH's Facebook page a tip about handing out the white grid cards for character autographs at Disney.

I have a video of my Disney Project Life pages:

Mercy Tiara's Disney Project Life

I used the front pages of the park maps for title/summary cards of each park and lots of ephemera and stuff from my stash.

Have fun in Disney!

We went to Disney last fall and I got crazy with the crafting and scrapping. You can see all my Disney projects on my blog if that helps. It includes a link to my Disney Autograph Photo Album as well as my Disney Travel Album (which I created in a Snap). Hope that helps!

On the Project Mouse stuff it does say that she put them into printable pdf sheets, so you can easily have them printed at Staples or the like, without fiddling with the JPEG and PNG files.

FYI, I am finding that digi designers are doing this more and more with their PL sized cards.

I have not, but I saw somewhere that a family took the 3x4 cards for character autographs to then just slip into the album. I thought that was brilliant!

That's my biggest issue with PL. I tend to take 98% of my photos portrait style, but then I toss in just enough landscape to eliminate the ability to just use all vertical pocket pages. I have to do some real homework sometimes to figure out my LOs.
