My Disney Scrapbook Pages- 1991 Disney World Trip
Before I became the “Relocated Tourist,” I was knee deep in 12x12s, page protectors and adhesive. I remember like it was yesterday, walking into Ben Franklin, yes, that dates me since they aren’t around anymore, and I saw that they had a sticker aisle. I assumed stickers were for kids, why would a grown adult want a whole aisle of them? Who knew, like toys, stickers are for any age! A lady was standing and looking them, and she must have seen the expression on my face, for she went into full explanation of what they were for and the world of scrapbooking… I was hooked and Craig was screwed! LOL The amount of money, time, and space this hobby took was something else, but when I look back at the art and memories I created for my family, I wouldn’t have done it any other way. I loved the hobby so much that I was hired to be on the Design Team at Club Scrap (shout out to Kay, Beth and Deb) for 5 years before moving to Florida. I don’t do it much anymore, as digital as crept its way into our lives. But I am happy for the many pages and books I created.
I thought it would be fun to showcase a Disney layout that I created to show off some of my creativity, but also to show you that Disney was always a huge part of my family’s life. It was so fun to see all of these again and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Some were early on, some were artistic fun, and some were nice, clean pages. I think everyone gets either better, quicker, or more creative. You’ll see what I mean if you follow the blog.
I am going to kick off this fun series with one that I did for my 1991 trip to Disney World with my parents and brother…this being my FIRST trip to Disney ever! So back then the photos aren’t the best, lighting is off, you wonder why someone took a photo of “that” but because it was my first walk into the most Magical place on Earth for me, every pic means something to me. So much nostalgia looking back- the “Dinosaurs” at MGM Studios, “MGM Studios” itself, the OG “Journey into Imagination,” “Cranium Command,” “Flight of the Navigator” on the Backlot Tour at Studios, “Electric Mayhem” played behind the Muppet Store, “World of Motion,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” Meet and Greet at the Streets of America at Studios, “Innoventions” and “20,000 Leagues under the Sea” attraction. Geesh, Disney was so much better back then, sorry, but it’s my opinion.
I made it with picture alphabet stencils, laying over each pic and tracing picture by picture, letter by letter. I had to lay them all out on my worktable so I could see it for myself on how it would appear. A big problem with letters this size is they must stretch across several pages to work for what you are spelling out. So, note to my readers, keep it short. Then I traced out the entire letters on white cardstock and laid them out on the background paper shown. I love me a good embellishment, so I punched out a bunch of stars to add some magic to the pages and trimmed “World” out of smaller stencils. The finished product is one of my favorites, so I thought it would be fun to start with this. What do you think? Props to my mom for wearing her “Universal Studios” sweatshirt to Epcot- savage Mom! LOL
