Disney Scrapbook Group

Are there any scrapbooking fans out there?  

I'm a huge fan of scrapbooking.  In fact, I probably have thousands of dollars invested in my supplies that I've collected since high school.  It probably comes as no surprise to you that I've got quite a bit of Disney scrapbooking supplies.

This is our (current 6/26/14) group photo. Find this and you've found us!
At the beginning of April, I stumbled across a group on Facebook dedicated to people who share the love of Disney and scrapbooking!  Being a member of the group is a lot of fun so wanted to share the information with all of you!  The group is called Disney Scrapbookers.  It's a closed Facebook group, so you'll have to request to join.  (The admins are quick so you won't be waiting long!)

There are so many things that make the group fun!  We share photos of our scrapbook pages to get ideas and inspiration from others.  It's also a great way to show off your layouts!  (Which we all spend lots of time on; why not show off our hard work to people who appreciate it?)  There are also giveaways, challenges, and swaps!

The admins do giveaways every time the group hits a membership milestone.  This morning we hit 250 members and we're having another giveaway!  In addition, some members also giveaway extra supplies or die cuts that they've made.  Usually, you simply have to comment on that thread and then a random winner will be selected!

I actually won the membership giveaway the day after I joined the group back in April!  I never win contests so I was really excited about this!  One of the admins sent me a wonderful prize package of handmade Disney World map coasters, a Disney scrapbook kit, and 2 packs of Disney washi tape!

One of my favorite parts of the group is trading layouts and cards.  We just started the sign up for the Christmas in July Card Swap.  Basically we will make one card for each member who signs up for the swap.  That means that each participant will end up with a ton of new cards!  And if getting a ton of cards wasn't awesome enough, you'll get ideas of new ways to make your own cards in the future!  Woo-hoo!!!

I recently participated in my first layout swap.  I was really excited about it.  My partner wanted a Princess Tiana design, and it was a little bit of a challenge to find things for the page.  I finally settled on using a few die cuts that I found at my local JoAnn Fabrics store.  Then, I found co-ordinating colors for the paper.  I also decided to make some (hand cut) die cuts of ponds, lilies and lily pads, and cattails.  I even used fuzzy paper for the cattails!  I absolutely love how my layout turned out!

My absolute favorite part of this group is the inspiration that I get from it.  I've had a lot of scrapbook supplies sitting in my closet for years now.  I'm so busy that I have barely looked at them.  But now, I'm going through them, organizing my supplies, contemplating new layout ideas and most importantly, I'm excited about it again.

In fact, I recently ordered two new Cricut cartridges from Cricut Machine: Happily Ever After and Dreams Come True.  Both feature the princesses, and they'll be perfect for scrapbooking our Disney Wedding and the New Fantasyland additions!  The cartridges were even on sale when I got them- for more than half off!  And I never would have known if another member of our group hadn't posted the link to the sale.

I also ordered supplies from Scrap Your Trip, which is the ultimate place to go to look for Disney supplies!  (Or for any scrapbooking supplies- they've got everything!!!)  I got paper and die cuts for our half marathon, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, the monorail, meeting Anna and Elsa, Chef Mickey's and Be Our Guest.  Once again, these were on sale when I ordered them (20% off) and I found out because someone mentioned it in our group!  I noticed today that they've added new designs... Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach scrapbooking here I come!!!

As you can see, this is a great group to be a part of if you love scrapbooking and Disney! You can even invite your friends to get in on the fun.  I invited Eliot's sister Elissa to the group and she and I have had a lot of fun shopping for supplies together while she's visiting!  I really can't wait to break out all of these supplies and to get to work!  °o°
