Disney Layout #3

Hi, everyone!!

Today I will show you my 3rd Disney layout. This one was so much fun to do!

03AResized Disney Scrapbook
I found this AMAZING collection by Simple Stories that goes perfectly with Disney-themed layouts. It is the “Say Cheese” collection and is available at Scrapbook.com, Joann, and Michael’s recently started carrying them in their stores. I only used one embellishment (the “Say Cheese” bubble at the top left corner) on this layout, but I will be using more of the collection in future scrapbook pages.

Moreover, I found a pack of large Alphabet letters at Michael’s that were on clearance and knew that they would be perfect for doing titles. The “body” of the letters is clear plastic (refer to photo below). I overlapped them using micro glue dots so that the actual letters were closer together. The “Hello” and “Cute” are wood veneers (also from Michael’s). I decided that I didn’t want the wood look so I tried using a white, silvery Ranger liquid pearls to turn it white. Once it dried, I put a layer of glossy accents to protect it. The wood felt fragile to me so I thought using white paint might deteriorate it.

The absolutely adorable”Mickey Poses” pattern paper is from Joann. The green with white dots paper is available at Michael’s. Joann actually has a pretty good selection of Disney-themed paper, unlike Michael’s which only has 1 or 2. The camera dimensional sticker is by Recollections and comes in a pack of 6 different looking cameras (#308573). The star and heart gemstones can be bought at any craft stores in the sticker section. I believe I got mine at Michael’s a long time ago. The mickey mouse gem sticker (picture above) comes in a pack of 18 of 3 different colors: red, clear, and black.

05 Disney Scrapbook

If you are interested in the “Disneyland 2014″ card (seen on the left side of the layout), you can find more Disney journal cards like it here. The cards in there are amazing and great for pocket page scrapbooking! The album is very large, so set aside a large window of time (1-2 hours) to look at them and download the ones you like. I would like to thank the creator of these Disney journal filler cards, pixiesprite, for making them. I have used many of her Disney cards in this scrapbook for journaling.

Disney Layout #1

Hi, Everyone!

Today I will be discussing my first Disney Layout.

23 Disney Scrapbook

This is the opening page of my Disney Scrapbook. I had a difficult time with this one. I wanted it to look more…decorated/embellished…but after adding the large mouse ears, everything I tried made the page feel too crowded. Therefore, I settled on keeping it simple.

To make the ears, I used my Cricut Expression 2 to cut out 3 circles (1 large and 2 smaller ones) and did a bit of estimating and cropping as I tried to make it look like Mickey ears. To me, the black and black made it difficult to distinguish the “head” from the “ears.” It looked like blobs on the page. To solve this issue, I took a white colored pencil and added highlights. This helped significantly in making it look like Mickey’s ears.

Moreover, I found the sparkly “2014” at Walmart in a pack of 3 (red, white, and green colors) that were on clearance. I believe the 2014 pack is part of their graduation party section. Goes to show you can find a lot of stuff to use on scrapbook layouts that aren’t necessarily considered a part of scrapbooking!

The large “Our Disney Adventure” 3D sticker is part of the Disney Chipboard Stickers, Mickey Family Titles pack by EK Success (Disney), which can be bought at Michael’s, Joann, Walmart, etc.

The pattern paper is by We R Memory Keepers. It is the Basics Collection – 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper. Item#: 62205-5 (Yellow Dot); 62203-1 (Red Dot).

Upcoming Disney layouts!

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to let you all know that I have some scrapbooking tips to share in the near future.

I visited Disneyland for the first time this past July and have been slowly scrapbooking the entire trip! I’m really excited to share it all with you guys. Ever since Disneyland, I have gone Disney crazy. I have bought so many Disney-themed craft products and have enjoyed using them in my scrapbook.

I decided to try out the pocket page scrapbooking style to record this trip. This is my first experience and I wanted to see if this method is as quick and easy as many claim it to be. I haven’t decided whether or not I like it more than the traditional single page layouts. It has certainly tested my perspective and creativity and my method of scrapbooking. I find it more difficult to try and spice up each page, but I am slowly learning a few ways to make up for it. Plus, this experience has made me more appreciative of the traditional style. I find that I am enjoying doing one page layouts more than I ever did before. It certainly has boosted my creativity up a notch.

Anyway, keep an eye out for future posts of my Disney pages and learn some tips along the way!

Thanks for reading!
