When Stephanie shared with me that Old Navy had a free printable Mickey Travel Journal, as part of their “Mickey Through the Decades Campaign” I couldn’t find it, download, and print fast enough! We both had a lot of ideas of fun things these printables could be used for and were excited to create this post together, a Steph & Stephanie post, each sharing our ideas!
First up is Stephanie…
Yes, you read that right, Old Navy. The store just launched a promotion with Disney showcasing Mickey Through the Decades. The designs all have that awesome Pie Eyed Vintage Mickey Mouse. That is probably my favorite depiction of the Mouse. What really caught my eye — aside from the sweepstakes for a Disney Tour in LA, but I digress — was the collection of FREEBIES! There are four offerings, a summer activity book, postcards, coloring sheets and digital wallpapers. Currently I have the Minnie Mouse wallpaper as the lock screen and the Mickey Mouse Wallpaper as the home screen of my iPad Mini.
I have wanted to put together a small album to scrap while on my next trip to Disneyland, at an as yet to be determined date. I figured a fun little Sn@p album with the pages pre-done would be an easy way to scrap on the go. I’ve been investigating how to get my iPhone to communicate with my Polaroid Pogo printer — that is information for another post — and that combined with a small album would be perfect for a mini travel journal.
I went and picked up some supplies and browsed through my stash of Disney embellishments. It turns out I even had some vintage style stickers from Sandy Lion.
I printed out the PDF’s on HP Brochure & Flyer Paper. This is the same paper I use to print out any Project Life digital cards.
I put together the insert pages and added a few stickers here and there along with some washi tape. All I’ll need to do on the trip is add the pictures and some journaling. I’ll bring a journaling pen, some washi tape, stickers, stamps and ink pad, and my printer with me and when I have a few minutes at the end of the day I can put it all together. I’ll share a post of how it goes when I return. So in the meantime go grab these awesome freebies, and while you’re there check out the adorable T-shirts, you always need a cute outfit to wear. You just never know where you will find some great scrapbooking supplies!
Stephanie is an avid paper crafter, scrapbooker, and lover of all things Disney. When not creating scrapbook pages about her husband and son she can be found at HainingMade.com making handmade paper crafts for parties and events.
I created some luggage tags with the postcard printables and also worked up the Travel Journal. Here’s what I did:
I knew I wanted to laminate the activity portion of the Travel Journal the kids could use crayons and write on them over and over. So, I cut everything apart and glued the papers to cardstock, being careful it was laid out in the order I wanted it all, once it was laminated. My favorite activity page is the Bingo page. There are lots of fun things for kids to watch for as they are riding in the car. I found some Bazzil cardstock that matched the light blue color at the top of the page almost perfectly (Lagoon). I cut out the 4 bingo cards and then glued the rest of the page to a piece of Lagoon cardstock. I cut the top off an Archivers brand kraft envelope and glued it front side down to create a pocket for the bingo cards.
I did not laminate the inside pages. I glued them to the cardstock and then left them alone, so the kids could journal and add photos in the appropriate spots.
I bound the Travel Journal using my Zutter and then added some washi tape to the top and bottom, as well as a couple of Basic Gray charms.It’s cute, but still very functional.
I LOVE these little post cards and was super excited to use them to make some FAST luggage tags. Is there a better way to identify your luggage then a custom Mickey tag? I don’t think so! I just printed them on textured Bazill cardstock (I love that look) and then ran them through my laminator:
A few other ideas for using this golden nugget, printable PDF:
- The printables would be great to use in a “Smashing the Magic” album

Steph and I will be updating this Pinterest board with the products we used for our projects:
