I'm going to show you how to make a gorgeous Disney Princess scrapbook layout!
This particular layout was inspired by a photograph taken of my daughter in 2019 in Tahiti. She often wears any of the Disney Princesses' costume dresses when out and about instead of ordinary clothes and this particular day was no exception.
You most likely won't have exactly the same craft paper cutters and images as I did so feel free to change the elements of this layout using whatever you have on hand.
Okay, let's start creating the elements for this layout. We will need at least one Princess from Disney-themed image (mine is actually from a coloring book), some colored and plain cardstock, a plain colored background, your treasured photograph, some scrap card, and a few decorative craft paper cutters.
Begin by preparing the Disney Princessy element. In the spirit of using what I had on hand, I used a page from a painting pad that I bought for the kids a few months ago, and just cut out the image that I wanted.
You could also get images from an album, books, or magazines, purchased stickers or scrapbooking elements, or some clip-art. Don't feel like you need to use a princess, a castle, or other characters such as the seven dwarves will tie in with the theme just as well.

I colored the image using Derwent Inktense pencils. Inktense pencils are extremely versatile and will work on both paper products and fabric. They go on like watercolor pencils in that you add a bit of color to the princess page and then use water to create an ink-like effect.
It's fairly permanent once it's dry and you can even work over the color without affecting the previous layer.
After the Inktense was dry I traced over the outline with a thin black marker and also used a white paint pen to add some highlights. Next, I used a craft knife to cut it out.
Go ahead and prepare your materials. Here's what mine looks like colored in!
Wait! Now That You Have A Theme For Your Scrapbook Page, Then You'll Need To Know What Layout To Use....Let Me Show You...
♥How to START and FINISH a layout to perfection (so no more pushing things around on a page for hours and hours).
♥How to get your creative juices flowing again so you'll NEVER experience scrappers block again!
♥How to always have the perfect scrapbook layout for every occasion!
Set aside your themed scrapbook imagery and grab some sheets of cardstock for the background. I chose a bright, bold pink for the background and a dark blue and soft purplish/pinkish pattern for the scrapbook layers.
Using a craft cutter that makes pretty edges, I used it down the entire long length of both of the layers. The layers were cut to cover around one-third of the scrapbook space.
Set these disney scrapbook layout elements aside also.
