This is My Happy Place

I was so excited when I heard Epiphany Crafts were partnering with American Crafts and even more excited when I opened my box and saw I got to work with the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection.

I love the Dear Lizzy collections and was so happy to get the chance to work with it.





My family and I went to Disneyland for spring break, we love Disneyland and have been several times, it’s my happy place. When I saw the “This is my Happy Place” chipboard I knew it would make a great title for an Instagram mini album for our trip.






The Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Circle 25 and Circle 14 make a great Mickey Mouse embellishment. I glued down the smaller circles for his ears then added the larger circle with foam tape so it would sit nicely on the ears. I love how it turned out and ended up using it throughout my mini album.






This collection was almost like it was made for your Disney photos, the words and embellishments are perfect.






This is my youngest son’s favorite ride – Splash Mountain, I used the “you are loved” heart sticker and matched the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Heart 25 to the same colors as the ones on the journaling card.






I love that you can customize everything, colors, shapes, patterns to the rest of your project.






When I printed my photos at home on a 4 x 6, I printed 2 3×3 photos and had a strip left so instead of letting it go to waste I printed some really small 1×1″ photos on the strips then added them to a page.






I really love the Vintage Settings to add some fun embellishments, I added some patterned paper to the centre then added a sticker on top.






I added the space ship (ie Eiffel Tower lol) to this picture of my oldest son’s favorite ride Space Mountain. Pew Pew !






I used the hot air balloon stickers and cut some out from the paper to add to this photo of the Mickey Balloons.






The chipboard for this collection is lovely, I added another epoxy heart to this page. I was so thankful for the young lady in front of us who asked if she could take our photo, otherwise you would never know I was there too.






My youngest son always looks forward to getting the giant pickles when we got to Disneyland – they are yummy.





For the last page I used a photo of Walt and Mickey and added another fun Mickey embellishment. I am so thankful to Walt for creating such a magical, happy place. I can’t wait to go back!

Thanks for stopping by.

this is such a fun album, Fleur! We're planning our first Disneyland trip for next year and I'm looking so forward to it! (Being an east coast girl, I grew up with Disney World so I'm anxious to compare the two!)
