A First Time Magical Memories Layout with Wendy Antenucci

Firsts are always worth documenting, but when they happen at our favorite theme-parks, they’re all the more magical! Today design team member Wendy Antenucci is sharing a layout that documents a first for her son: a BIG ride and his funny reaction to it. You probably have a similar story to tell, and our Magical Memories collection can help you do that! Let’s take a look!

Hello everyone! It’s Wendy here today with a layout using the new Magical Memories collection! We are a total Disney family and are so blessed to live close to Disney World, so many of our memories are magical. Today I am sharing my little boys adventure on Big Thunder Mountain:

Supplies | Magical Memories Journaling Tags, Magical Memories 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Magical Memories Puffy Stickers, Magical Memories At The Castle Wood Veneers, Magical Memories Wood Veneer Confetti, Magical Memories Stamp, Large Jane Alpha Stamp – Solid, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die

To document my little ones’ first adventure on this roller coaster, I chose the striped pattern from the Magical Memories 6 x 6 Paper Stack to show movement and to help create the theme of flying.  The blue star pattern matched my picture and provided a place to house my photo.

I thought it would be fun to have some confetti “flying” around to further the idea of flying and things flying past you as you soar down the track, so I used my circle punches to cut out a few red and yellow circles. These also added to the typical Disney colors on my layout. I also used the Magical Memories Puffy Stickers and Wood Veneer Confetti which I inked in red and covered in glossy accents.  A few stamped sentiments from the Magical Memories Stamp and my journaling continued the feel of motion.

I wanted my title to reference flying, since my son kept saying, “I’m flying!” during the ride. To the rescue: my beloved Large Jane Alpha Stamps and Metal Die—oh be still my heart! I wanted the title to be bold as if it was being yelled, so I chose to stamp with black ink.  The blue, “let’s do that again,” die cut mirrored the star paper and added a pop of fun in such a bold font.

A few fun die cut sentiments found in the Magical Memories Journaling Tags brought in pops of color and helped to further tell my story.

Finally, I added the wood veneer castle from the At The Castle Wood Veneers to finish the story my son’s fun new ride at Magic Kingdom. Of course, he hasn’t tried the ride again, and he hates when we play the video of him screaming, “I’m flying!” It was definitely a magical memory that his siblings won’t let him forget!  

I love telling all of our stories, even when a ride didn’t go as well as one might have imagined. I have the same story for two more of our boys and even one of myself and my total FEAR of anything fast! Magical Memories will not only help you to tell your Disney adventures, but it is such a great staple collection for all those magical memories you don’t want to forget!
