Just a Few More Disney Scrapbooking Pages

Scrapbooking is supposed to be my enjoyable outlet but lately it's just stressful.  My "to do" list is very long!  From the day my oldest son was born I've managed to keep on top of all my scrapbooking (and with three boys there's a LOT of it!).

They each have their own set of scrapbooks plus I've done some random family vacation books.

That said I'm a year behind at this point and I'm really freaked out by that.  I know most scrapbookers are like "what only a year?! That's great!"  but it really does upset me.

One plus is that I've really scrutinized everything we've done for the past year to decide if it's scrap- worthy.  Unfortunately, I came across a whole envelope of Disney trip pictures from last February.

I thought I was done with Disney and had moved on but I couldn't just ignore these particular photos.  So yesterday afternoon I scrapbooked two more Disney pages for my middle son.


For this page I used a teal and white patterned paper from Stampin UP! as my background paper.  I used a dark teal paper & cut 4- 4x4"  squares and then cropped the photos to 3 3/4" squares and attached them together.   Using a patterned paper I never liked; I flipped it over to the back side and cut a large strip of white.  I'd have to guess 8 1/2 by 11.

Using Stampin Up!'s Simply Scored tool and the new boarders plate I made "waves" down the side of the paper.  I then used a teal marker to make them stand out.  I attached the 4 photos to the white paper and attached the white paper to the patterned teal.  I then cut a long strip of ribbon and wrapped it around the top of the paper.  I found the "fun in the sun" sentiment in a pre-pack of Disney scrapbooking stuff and attached that over the ribbon, centered on the page.

I found a matching square of yellow paper to write up the journaling  on and held it in several different sections of the page to try and determine where it looked the most balanced.  I finally choose mid-way up the left hand side of the page.  I then made a small bow using
the ribbon and attached it over the journaling.  


For this page  I used a yellow background paper and a sheet of royal blue paper.  I cut a 6 1/2x 12" strip of paper out of the blue and  attached three of the photos to the strip.  Using Stampin Up!'s gold glimmer paper I cut two small strips 1/2x 12"  and attached the strips and blue backed photos to the page.  

I then used my Coluzzle circle cutter to cut out my last photo, a slightly larger circle to cut the blue paper and the largest circle to cut out the glimmer paper.   I found a Mickey parade accent in my pile of embellishments and loved how the red stood out against the blue.  I then found the "love a parade" sentiment to match.

Quick, easy and coordinated.  

That's my style!
