Scrapbook Swap: Disney Titles

I've done another swap with my Disney Scrapbook Facebook group!  In the past, I've also participated in the Christmas in July Card Swap, the Christmas Layout Swap, the Valentine's Day Layout Swap, the Easter Layout Swap and the Patriotic Picnic Swap.  At this point, I've got quite the collection of Disney die cuts!!!

The process for the title swap was a little bit different from the others I've participated in.  Instead of choosing from a pre-determined list of cuts, we were allowed to select something of our own choosing.  For the title swap, I selected "It's a Small World."

I planned my cut for the swap ahead of time.  I created a design that was possible for me to make by hand since I still didn't have my Cricut running at the time.  In addition, my machine doesn't take svg files that are downloadable from the internet to cut out special designs.  I'm still making them all with my paper cutter, scissors and paper punches!  (Check back tomorrow for a tutorial on how to make your own It's a Small World title or scrapbook die cut pieces!)

My swap package actually arrived a few weeks ago and we've been so busy this summer that I haven't had a chance to post about it until now!  I'm so happy I did this swap!!!  I never take the time to make my own titles, and I can't easily buy customized Disney titles at the local craft store.  (Online is another story... must stay far away!)

The titles from this swap are so creative!  I'm going to make more of my own now that I have a collection started.  These are a few of my favorites from this swap!  I love the Mickey ice cream bar!  The general Disney cuts will be perfect.  The Epcot title is perfect for our adventures there!  I think my two favorites are a toss up between the Character Dining and Frozen titles.  Those will definitely be used!

This swap was tons of fun!  I'm really inspired to create more custom designs for my scrapbook!  Now if only I could find some time to sit down and scrapbook!  °o°


  1. Hi Melissa! I found your blog while browsing at work at my day just got a hundred times better-So many crafty ideas and fun posts to read. It's really helping me get my Disney fix right now. These cut swaps in particular sound like so much fun. I'd love to participate! When I click on the link to your group it says I am unable to view the page though. I suspect I have to join the group in order to view it. Maybe you can help? Thanks and great work! Keep the posts coming!.

    1. Hi Jamie! I'm so glad you found my blog! I love crafty stuff, so I'm sure there will be plenty more in the future! ;-) If you send me a link to your Facebook profile, I can forward it to the admins of the group. I think they had to up the security because we were getting too much spam! You can email my blog at mydisneylifeblog[at]gmail.com and I'll make sure to send your info along! :-)
