Scrapbooking Universal Studios and Harry Potter World

Recently, I shared some products that I found at that were perfect for creating layouts and making cards for Harry Potter fans.  Today, I'm sharing a couple layouts that I created using some of these products.

For the first time, I've veered from the traditional 12x12 scrapbook layout and am trying the 8.5x11.  Let me say, I love it!  It feels more intimate, with less ground to cover than a larger page.  I plan on sticking with this format for awhile.

The first page features this stamp from Scrapbook Customs, called Wizard Words.  This stamp set will make some adorable cards as well.  Notice on my first page, I've cut the word "Harry Potter" with my Cricut Explore and used those fun papers that I previously told you about.  Scroll down for more information on the papers.  I've also added some memorabilia, such as the Universal Studios ticket that my child brought home. 


These are the most perfect papers from Reminisce.  This kit also includes papers for Minion lovers, The Mummy and Jurassic Park, another fun feature at Universal Studios.  That was my son's favorite ride of the entire park.

I wasn't able to tag along on the Band trip but luckily, my son brought home a few souvenirs, including a gift sack with the name Ollivander's, which I cut and adhered to my page, along with a trading card from a Chocolate Frog box that features Salazar Slytherin.

I also used these fun cardstock stickers on my 2nd page, which includes a photo of my son and his 2 friends after the Blue Man Show.  They make fine wizards too, don't you think?

Happy shopping!  I hope you enjoyed my layouts today and enjoy shopping these affiliate links.  I love sharing my favorite finds with my crafty friends!

  1. Great layout! We just went to Harry Potter World last weekend (well, one side...we will go to the other side next time). We have passes so we can go whenever we want. : )

    1. You are so lucky to live down there! I lived in Florida for a few years as a child and still have family down there but it's been awhile since we've been. Wish I'd been able to make the band trip to Orlando with my child!

  2. Hi. Love your pages!
    I have a cricut explore, but I'm not good with using it. What font or cartridge did you use to cut out Harry Potter on the first page?

    1. It's a font that I downloaded from Do a search at that site for "Harry P." You will need to download it, then unzip the file and and install on your computer. You can find a lot of information on Google on installing fonts to your computer. Once you've done that, you will find your font in design space under "system fonts" rather than cricut fonts.
