Walt Disney World Scrapbook and Tips for Scrapbooking a Vacation

So excited to share with you all the scrapbook I just completed from our 2018 vacation to Florida. I really enjoy creating scrapbooks of our vacations. Vacation scrapbooks are some of my favorite since it is so much fun to go back and revisit those places we have traveled to over the years.

Scroll to the end of this post for a slideshow of the layouts in this scrapbook album.

I am sharing this since I have been often asked how I approach a vacation scrapbook.  The main thing I will say is that - Organization is key.
  • I organize my photos by day and by event or location visited within the day.
  • I try to be very picky with the photos I use so as not to print too many. I don't feel the need to scrapbook every photo I take on a vacation - I try and choose only those that help tell the primary story in each layout.
  • I choose a paper collection to use for the entire album. This helps to unify the various layouts within the album.
  • I keep the background papers to primarily black, white and a simple neutral. I will occasionally add a pop of color on a layout with a different background color.
  • I keep the embellishments simple - a few gems, buttons and some ribbon is enough.
  • I rely on sketches to help keep my layouts clean and uncluttered.
  • I tend to pick a couple fonts to use throughout the album when creating titles on my Cricut - this also helps to unify the pages.
For this album I used the More Magical collection along with the coordinating paper from Close To My Heart. These papers were perfect for this and I wish the collection was not retired. Close To My Heart brought it back once and I hope they will again.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you liked the album. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions.
