Jot Magazine Issue 14: Once Upon a Time

Jot Magazine issue 14 has been out for a few weeks now, and if you haven't checked it out yet, I'd love to share a layout I created for the Storytelling section. This month's theme was "once upon a time," which immediately made me think of our trip to Disneyland at the end of last year, so I decided to create another 8-1/2" x 11" layout to add to my Disneyland album.

Supplies | Cardstock: Bazzill Basics. Patterned paper: Simple Stories. Journaling tags: Project Life, Elle's Studio. Stickers: Simple Stories, Crate Paper, Studio Calico. Stamps: In a Creative Bubble, Studio Calico. Wood veneer: American Crafts. 

When we first arrived at the park, the first ride we came to with a short line was the Flying Dumbo ride. Walking up to it, Lizzy was just amazed. I was so happy that I had my camera ready to capture the joy and excitement in her face. 

I loved the floral & sequin paper from Simple Stories that I chose for my background, but when I cut it to 8-1/2" x 11", the gold "I am" words were still visible in the right corner. So I simply covered that area with sequins and flowers cut from another corner of the paper. I continued my red, yellow, turquoise, white and black color scheme from the rest of my Disney layouts throughout the page, layering tags, washi, and stickers to create a whimsical, girly layout.

Title work is always my favorite part of a layout, and I had fun creating this one with Crate Paper Thickers, an older alphabet stamp from Studio Calico, and epoxy gold alphas from Studio Calico.

I'm loving having this memory documented in my Disneyland album! What will you create with the theme of "once upon a time?"
