Whoa! This is a major project! But it brings me so much joy to reminisce about my family’s 2018 Disney World trip. In fact, I am planning another WDW trip for 2020…I better hurry up and finish my 2018 album!
The next story in my 2018 Disney album is all about Chef Mickey’s, a character dining experience located in the beautiful Disney Contemporary Resort. Chef Mickey’s is a fantastic option for first time WDW visitors and makes for the perfect vacation kick-off meal. At Chef Mickey’s, guest get to meet Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto. The character interaction is amazing and the food is pretty tasty.
For this story, I wanted to create a layout that includes both a traditional scrapbook page and a pocket page. In doing this, I am able to include a lot of photos that capture the major highlights of this experience.
Of course, as luck would have it, my family and I were almost late to our dinner reservation due to Orlando traffic! To hear this story and to see this layout come together, click on the video below.

We’ve all been there…life throws a wrench in our plans and we become engrossed in a parade of emotions. Sometimes our feelings are temporary, our issues are seemingly resolved and we press on. Other times we remain in our feelings for days, weeks, months, or even years at a time.
Recently, I have been dealing with a case of mild depression brought on by caregiver stress, trying to maintain an impossible workload, dealing with a small creative slump, worries about my business and personal finances, and general “trying to keep all the plates spinning”. You know…life.
Even at my lowest points, I never shy away from scrapbooking. I find the act of documenting how I am feeling (good, bad, or ugly) to be therapeutic and honest. I appreciate looking back and remembering all that I have gone through and how I was able to overcome life’s toughest moments. Scrapbooking doesn’t always have to be about rainbows and sunshine. Sometimes life sucks and we can deal with our issues by simply documenting our journey.
It all counts.
Check out the following video where I share more about documenting life’s rough moments, and why I like using a Traveler’s Notebook as a method of brain (and emotional) dumping. A list of products used is posted below.
The time has come to celebrate all that is summer – swimming, BBQ, shorts, sandals, snow cones, and summer time scrapbooking! I am kicking off my summer scrapbooking by documenting my daughter’s love of Bahama Buck’s snow cones – a regular staple for my family as we attempt to beat the Texas heat!
This layout features a ton of items from my stash and a simple water color background, created using an acrylic block and Tim Holtz Distress Ink. To see this layout come together, click on the following video. A list of materials used is provided below. Enjoy!

Do you have a child who enjoys taking selfies on your cell phone? I was scrolling through my photos on my iPhone a few weeks ago and discovered several funny little selfie photos, courtesy of my kiddo! Of course, I have to scrapbook a few of them!
Using the PicFrame App on my iPhone, I created a small photo grid using a few of my daughter’s selfie photos. I then uploaded the grid photo to my computer and resized the photo to a 5.5 x 5.5 inch square using PowerPoint. I am Photoshop illiterate and have discovered the joys of using PowerPoint as a tool for resizing photos like the one featured on my layout. I love scrapbooking hacks!
For this layout, I used die cut labels, shapes, and puffy stickers from Elle’s Studio to create embellishment clusters at the top and bottom of the layout. I love how the colors work together with the craft card stock background. A list of available products is provided below.
