I have been so pleased over your happy responses to Project Mouse. It is so much fun to hear that you are as excited as we are about Project Mouse!! Britt and I both started off this project as something to do for our own trips…but as our ideas grew, we realized how amazing this could be for so many people. Not just as a fast and easy way to scrap, but one that would focus on the DETAILS of our magical vacations. If you aren’t quite sure what Project Mouse is about, our mission, back story, and details can be found in this post here, Welcome to Project Mouse! I highly encourage you to click over and read it.
Are you ready for another week of Project Mouse?? Last week we looked at Project Mouse: Bundle No. 1 BASICS, which is a starter kit (of sorts) which you can use to scrap throughout your entire album. THIS week…it’s ALL about what happens “Leading Up to the Magic”! I believe that your vacation begins even before you get to that magical destination. Think of the memories created just anticipating your trip. From the moment your special destination is first revealed, to the booking of your trip, from creating countdowns to ticking off the days until you leave on your trip, to your flight and arriving at your destination…

How are these Different? Memory Prompts
These packs are a little different from the last couple…How?? Well, we didn’t want to create something just to help scrapbook your trip…but something MORE that would actually help capture the DETAILS of your trip. Those little details and the small moments that have been easily forgotten or that you don’t always get photographs of. Included in each of these packs you will find numerous story prompts, blank forms, journalers, phrases, and memory joggers to help trigger and capture those small moments of your trip.
Let’s break it down and I’ll show you each of the packs and what you can capture with each of them.
Pack #1: Project Mouse: Reveal/Countdown
The Reveal / Countdown pack is perfect for capturing your highly anticipated vacation – From the moment your special destination is first revealed, to creating fun countdowns to mark your vacation day, these include cards to help you document the anticipation and what you did before the trip.

Pack #2: Project Mouse: Planning
Don’t Overlook the Planning Process…there are so many moments that are worth remembering just from the planning of your trip. This will be perfect for documenting when you booked your reservation – what are the basic details of when you took your trip? What about capturing snapshots of your planning tools, such as calendars and a basic trip itinerary? Did you make anything for your trip? Were you excited to stay at your dream hotel? Do you struggle to remember those special dinning reservations you had? You will find numerous story prompts and memory joggers to help trigger those fun planning details of your trip.

Pack #3: Project Mouse: On Our Way
The On Our Way pack is everything you need to celebrate the “joy of the journey”. Whether you plan on reaching your destination via plane or automobile, these journaling spots will help you document everything from on the road pit stops to every last “Are we there yet?”. You will find numerous story prompts, travel journal cards for trip reports, travel-themed phrases, maps & baggage tickets to help capture the details of your journey.
Pack #3: Project Mouse: Arriving – We’re Here!
The Project Mouse: We’re Here! pack is all about when you GET there and want to yell, “WE’RE HERE!!”. You’ve done all the planning, packed all the suitcases, traveled, and have ARRIVED at your temporary “home away from home”. As you settle in, you start to notice all the special reasons you chose this locale – the decorated room, the carefully folded towels, the yummy pillow mints. Record all those memorable details with blank checklists, journaling spots, and word art cards. This will help you document everything about your accommodations, from the first helpful bellhop to the last continental breakfast – and everything in between!

Our Personal Project Mouse Journey
KRISTA >>>>> I can not tell you how much fun doing the project is…we haven’t even left for our latest trip yet, but I’m capturing all these fun memories that we’ve made before the actual trip has even begun. I truly am enjoying myself with this hybrid pocket style album. It’s been fun to put in bits of notes the kids have written and drawings that my son drew of Donald Duck. I will be posting about this soon on my blog!!
BRITT >>>>> She is just as excited to use these card packs as I am!! She is continuing to conduct her little “experiment” by trying to scrap her entire Sept 2012 Disneyland trip Pocket Style – and Project Mouse is DEFINITELY getting her there. Check out her page!
