What’s not to love about this bright, happy page by Michelle? We love how she created the cluster in the center with lots of fun layers and shapes without overwhelming her photo. This style- using a wide variety of papers and embellishments in one large cluster- might be overwhelming with multiple photos because the eye would not know where to rest, but by using one singular photo that is not visually busy, it creates the perfect balance and keeps the focus on the photo.

Michelle does an excellent job highlighting the photo even further by using the cork letters for her title directly under the photo.


Michelle’s use of the “Toy Friends” die cut in vibrant turquoise creates a base for the layered cluster to “sit”, which grounds the cluster visually.

Michelle says:

“Hi there, it’s Michelle for Disney Creative Co. I’m super excited to share my first layout with you. The photo was taken in Disneyland Paris, we just loved Jessie’s meet and greet, it was great fun, and I thought the Toy Friends cutting die was perfect for this layout!

I love to use bright colors in my layouts and like to put hidden mickeys on every Disney page I do. I like to use things associated with the movie too, here I used a wood-looking title for Woody and stars for his badge. Blue skies ahead as the wallpaper in Andy’s room is blue with clouds, the spring to show toys and circles to represent the Pixar ball. The Toy Friends cutting die was easy to use and I love how it pops off the page. Thank you for stopping by. Have a magical day.”
