It’s been a minute since I scrapbooked! Seriously, I just wasn’t in the mood all summer to work on anything really–I’m not gonna lie here–but I pulled out my 12×12 album the other day and found tons of photos already in their place waiting to be properly scrapped. So I rummaged through my mostly untouched scrap stash and paired each photo–or each set of photos–with a few papers and such. So expect more scrapped pages from me soon, because I’m on a roll!
I decided to work on this three photo layout first. I don’t think I ever attempted a layout with multiple photos, so to be on the “safe” side, I decided to loosely scraplift Suse Fish. She’s ace at scrapping multiple photos on one layout, so I observed the master and tried to mimic her work…even down to all of the candy-colors I used. As Suse would put it, there’s been an explosion at the Haribo factory!
Though, I will say that all of these colors really suited my photos well. I decided to use bits from Cocoa Vanilla Studio‘s More Than Words collection, which seems to be the collection of this particular 12×12 album. I also dug into my Felicity Jane stash and finally used some bits I’ve been hoarding. I find that these clean, white-based collections all go together quite well.
Now, these silly photos are from my time at Dapper Day 2018 at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. I dressed up in this too cute baby pink 50s inspired dress that I made with the help of a good friend. I hand embroidered a bunch of Mad Tea Party motifs onto the skirt as homage to my favorite Disney Park ride, The Mad Tea Cups. My friend Keshia, whom I went on this trip with, and I found this blue wall in a quite empty part of Disney California Adventure. So naturally, we took a bunch of silly photos in front of it. I took my photos into Lightroom and Photoshop to turn my blue wall into a nice teal wall that matched my dress better, so never fear, t’was a blue wall.
The creation of this layout was a bit of a process! You can see what I mean by this once you watch the scrap with me video below. It’s quite long, but I wanted to keep it as close to “real time” as possible. I hope you enjoy!
