Disney Project Life Album – Tomorrowland Meeting Buzz Lightyear
Posted on under Hybrid Projects, Project Life, Project Mouse
Theresa Moxley here with the next layout in my Disney album. Feel free to follow along on my journey each week! To look back on my Project Life / Project Mouse layouts, find my other posts here.
Today we are continuing our trip through Tomorrowland in my Disney album! For my layout today we get to meet Buzz Lightyear, who is always a favorite in our house.
Choosing Photos and Journal Cards
For this layout I chose photos from both the People Mover and Space Rangers rides, and then I chose my journaling cards. All of these cards are from the Project Mouse: Tomorrow collection, with the exception of the “This Is What Happy Looks Like” card from the Project Mouse: We’re Here collection. They were all printed at home using the print files included with your purchase of the kit!
Here is a look at the layout I created:
Left Hand Side
The SPACE card was the perfect choice for this layout! I only added a simple wood piece to embellish. The photos here were taken while we were on the People Mover. Fun fact: This attraction happens to be one of my personal (very non-exciting!) favorites at the whole park. And clearly, Natalie is fully enchanted here as well, by the excitement on her face!
The purple journal card was where I chose to write my journaling. I added a thin washi tape to use as lines. I love how the yellows tie this layout altogether with the purple and blue.
This is a very colorful layout, from the photos with lots happening and the lovely colors in the Tomorrow collection, so I kept embellishments to a minimum. Wood veneer accents are perfect to add contrast and a bit of dimension that I love.
Right Hand Side
Let’s take a look at the right hand side too! We all love the Space Rangers ride, and it was especially fun to meet Buzz as we were leaving. I will admit, our children are getting a little old to want their pictures taken with the characters, so Natalie is really the only one thrilled to pose. Too funny! Again I felt like these photos are bright and busy, so I chose journal cards that offer lots of white space to contrast. This is a great way to balance heavier photos so the layout does not feel too dark.
I added some different embellishments on this side of the layout, and I am so happy with how well the Tomorrow cards layer! I had some fun acrylic stars, hearts, and the TODAY word in my stash to continue the yellow across the page.
There was also a little bit of space for some glitter: the blueprint card is a favorite of mine, and this was definitely a great spot to use the glitter word phrase! Also note how I used the Items of Note card to list the rides we rode in this part of the park, and then I stamped stars to rate them. Of course they all received all the stars!
JOURNALING TIP: Try using washi tape for your journaling. Add thin washi tape lines, and write on the top side of the line.
I loved including this photo from inside the actual ride. I will not deny that taking snapshots inside these rides creates a photographic challenge, and there are lots of technical difficulties in this photo. But put those imperfect photos in your albums regardless!

Hi, I’m Theresa of Larkindesign from Kernersville, NC where I live with my four kids, one awesome husband, two cats, a dog, and a bunny. And occasionally our cat brings us pet salamanders. When I am not calming chaos I am in my studio, playing with photos and colors and embellishments. This scrapbooking thing is my passion and I love inspiring others to feel the same way!
