Supplies: Everyday Moments by Lauren Grier and Jennifer Barrette; Everyday Life – The Daily Digi members exclusive; template is from my (Steph) free class with Big Picture.
I (Steph) have shared on many occasions how much I love to travel with my family. One of my favorite places to visit is Disney…Disney Anything! I always come home with way more photos than I know what to do with. I want the memories documented because they are the best. I know I am not the only one with this frustration. Although I am going to share my tips for scrapping Disney photos, these tips can be applied to any big event or vacation.

In the past, I have always scrapped vacations chronologically. After hearing how Anna Aspnes and Kim Lund approach these projects, I am changing things up a bit. Here’s how I am breaking down this huge event so it is more manageable and doable:
- I am going through my photos chronologically and selecting a group of photos by subject and editing them.
- As I edit the photos, I am saving the edited versions in a folder named with a layout number and a subject.
- I have photos from the Teacups on multiple days, so I will put all of the Teacup photos in that folder called “Layout1-Teacups”. When I am all done sorting, I will decide if I am going to create just one layout with all of the Teacup photos or a couple of layouts. It will mostly be decided by how many photos end up in that folder.
- Once I know how many photos for each layout, I will be able to select templates OR pull the photos into FotoFusion to create a collage from.
- I have all of my kit previews tagged in Lightroom so I can pull up all of the supplies that I think are great for Disney scrapping at one time.
All of this could also be done in any tagging program and set up a tag for each layout/category instead of a folder.
One thing that I have learned over the years about my Disney scrapping is that I rarely use Disney themed kits. I love them and buy most of them, but I typically match supplies to the photos and we don’t usually wear typical “Disney Kit” colors when we go to Disney. Here are some of the kits I have used and loved for Disney:
Here are some layouts that Aaron shared from his recent trip. He had some tips to share too:
“I actually have shied away from using Disney themed kits this time around. I like the layouts I am doing better. As for getting them all done, what I did was I looked through my pictures and grouped them by what I would do a layout about. Then I listed all the layouts I wanted to do, and I cross them off as I get them done. Here are my faves so far…”
Here are some of MissKim’s favorite kits to use on Disney layouts:
Kim also shared this cute layout:
Here are some more digital scrapbooking kits that I think would be GREAT for scrapping Disney (some are themed and others have great colors that would work well):

That really is just the beginning of kits out there that can be used for Disney Scrapping! There are so many fun themed, bright color kits in our digital scrapbooking community! I’m ready to put on some Disney tunes and scrap, how about you!?
