7 FRESH Ideas For Your Disney World Scrapbook Layouts!
Disney World Scrapbook Layouts!
Today we’ll be talking about some scrapbook layout ideas to celebrate your Disney World trip. Mickey Mouse. Cinderella. Train rides. Pirates of the Caribbean. Taking a trip to Disney World is ranked as one of the top family vacation spots.
Disney scrapbooks are becoming super popular, so if you and your family have recently gone to Disney or are planning on going in the near future, then Disney scrapbooking layouts are a must!
Rather than sticking your photos and memorabilia into an album or a shoebox, create a special scrapbook album. These seven fresh ideas will help you create an album that will be very different from the typical Disney album.
Idea 1: Design a clever first page – here’s how…
When planning your Disney World scrapbook layouts, begin with a title page that features the whole family. A lot of scrapbookers use a group family shot taken in
front of the castle. Use a different prop. Maybe it’s a photo of your family riding the Merry-Go-Round together or everyone on the Dumbo ride. Use “Making Magical Moments Together” as your title.
Idea 2: Create fun scenes for your Disney world scrapbook layouts
Sure you might have some fun pictures of your kids eating cotton candy or running to get in line for a ride, but focus on photos that will actually help you create scenes.
For instance, did you get a great shot of your son and husband riding the Pirates of the Caribbean ship?
Enlarge the photo and cut out the ship. Adhere a sky blue background and then adhere the ship photo two-thirds down the page. Using wavy scissors or a paper trimmer, cut a row of waves and adhere across the bottom of the page. Add a catchy title to the scene such as “Arrgh!”, “A Pirate’s Life’s For Me” or “Welcome aboard mates!” Accent the page with stickers from the movie version of the Pirates of the Caribbean and fake gold coins.
Idea 3: Make your child a star of the Disney parade
One of the highlights of Disney World is the parade with all the Disney characters! Which float did your child enjoy the most? Take a close-up of the float and print a 5×7 copy of it. Add your child to the float either through a photo shop program or by cropping a photo of your child by hand. Your child will love seeing that he/she “magically” appeared on the float! Mat additional parade photos to add to your page. A fun title would be “Leader of the Pack!”
Idea 4. Scrapbook interactions with characters – get these on film!
For fun Disney World scrapbook layouts, gather the photos of your family members with various characters.
You can either fill a page or spread (two side-by-side pages) with a mix of family members and characters or devote an entire page to one child and character. For example, maybe you caught a photo of your son jumping up and down because he just spotted Woody from Toy Story. You take another photo of your son running and hugging Woody and a third photo of Woody with his arm around your son. These three pictures will make a great Disney World layout. Add some Toy Story stickers and an autograph if you were able to ask for one.
Idea 5. Highlight the train ride
Did you and your family enjoy the train ride? Using the Disney map that you received when you arrived at the park, cut out portions of the map for your layout.
Mat photos of your family riding the train and strategically place onto the layout. Journal about the various sites that you saw.
Idea 6. Dress like a princess
Your daughter has been dreaming about going to Disney for months! After all, her room is decorated with Disney princesses and she dressed as Belle for Halloween! Throughout the day take photos of the Disney princesses. Using a photo of your daughter dressed as Belle, impose her cropped photo in front of the Disney Castle.
Using a circular template, crop the photos of the princesses and add to the page. Your daughter will love being with the other princesses! Of course, your daughter will be the prettiest one of them all!
Idea 7. Cling onto memories – even the sleeping ones!
As the day progresses, you’ll be able to get fun photos of your children falling asleep from all of the excitement. Matt each photo and add a bubble to each one. Inside of the bubble write a fun comment as to what you think your child is dreaming about. These type of relaxed and informal photos can make a great ending for your Disney World scrapbook layouts.
And you can bet you’ll have a bunch of photos of the kids looking totally exhausted! Just make sure you have a camera on hand to capture the moment!
As you work on your Disney World scrapbook layouts, remember that the key to giving your album a fresh appearance is to add your personal touch. Instead of thinking of how many photos you can cram onto a page, ask yourself what story can this page tell with just one to four photos on it. Include memorabilia such as ticket stubs, programs and postcards. You’ll be able to find Disney scrapbooking supplies at a nearby craft store. Have fun with your Disney World scrapbook layouts!
