Disney scrapbook ideas for magical memories
Scrapbook the magical memories of your Disney vacation.Many crafty travelers return from Disney World brimming with Disney scrapbook ideas and itching to put their memories down on paper. Like any good story, Disney vacation scrapbook pages practically construct themselves - until images of princesses and castles dance in your mind, followed by pirates.
Certainly the family mouse ear poses should get a full page. Where to begin?
“Begin at the beginning,” the King said in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
True to the Disney way, creating a Disney vacation scrapbook is a genre of scrapbooking all of its own. A number of scrapbook companies license the rights to create Disney scrapbook papers and embellishments based on characters, attractions and themes. You can browse scrapbooking websites, stores or catalogs for images that grab you and inspiring Disney scrapbook ideas.
If you’re feeling stuck, here are a few ideas to spark your creativity.
Use Disney-themed scrapbook paper
Find Disney-themed scrapbook pages online or design your own and print them on scrapbook paper with faded writing in the background that looks like a postcard or page from a storybook. Here are a few types of scrapbook papers to try:
Magical – Images of a starry night sky, castles, wands, princes and princesses, fairies and pumpkins evoke a sense of wonder. Disney makes adults feel like kids and kids feel like dreaming and casting wishes. As the background to a candid photo of a family member lost in thought, a magic-themed paper requires no words.
Adventure – Scrapbook papers with images of treasure maps, pirate ships, islands and sparkling jewels capture a sense of adventure.
Disney characters – What Disney scrapbook would be complete without those familiar characters peeping out at every corner? You know you have a favorite, and odds are that everyone in your family does too. Choose the characters that standout in your mind and make a few patterns and designs that suit each character’s world.
A few examples:
*Snow White deserves a forest bluebirds and a cozy cabin.
*Alladin’s world of flying carpets and brass lamps is full of deep blues and jewel tone colors.
*An ‘under the sea’ theme will satisfy any mild obsession with the Little Mermaid.
*From the eyes of talking toys with lassos and slinky dogs, a Toy Story-themed page would go great with memories of your real adventures – roller coasters and treks through the Animal Kingdom.
Disney scrapbook embellishments:
Stamps, rub ons, stickers and glitter add a dash of color and compliment family photos and memorabilia. Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck are classic characters to include. These embellishments make your photos pop and surround your family with the same friendly faces that skip and greet throughout the park.
If you have a daughter, use glitter, images of carousels and bright flowers to design a princess page (if she likes princesses).
For a son, add a parrot on his should or a Neverland sticker to remind him of his days fighting pirates.
Title your scrapbook pages with Disney-themed quotes:
Quotes can help set just the right tone of your Disney vacation. Try using your favorite quotes from Disney movies and songs to title a page and build from there. Here are a few inspirational choices:
It is hard to be brave, when you're only a very small animal. -Piglet
Mirror Mirror on the Wall, who's the Fairest One Of All? -The Queen (Cinderella)
