In each installment we are excited to bring you the designers and scrapbookers that will hopefully inspire you to preserve your memories and relive those magical moments in your life.
Now let me introduce you to you to Lynnette of the Scrapping Is Life…
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m married to my dentist (he’s a great guy!) & mom to four cute kids, who are featured lot of in my colorful, playful pages.
I’m currently blogging for My Scrapbook Art and creating pages for Pixels & Company, Digital Design Essentials, Just Jaimee, and Stolen Moments Design. You can find everything scrap related on my blog, Scrapping Is Life.
How long have you been scrapbooking?
What program or style do you use for scrapbooking?
I’m exclusively digital, and I’m currently using Photoshop Elements 10.
What makes scrapbooking Disney different?
Disney is EPIC! Every moment is magical, and you want to be able to capture that in your pages. It can be a challenge, but it’s a lot of fun, too!
Where do you get your inspiration for your Disney pages?
They are both phenomenal scrappers as well, and I subscribe to both of their email newsletters, which feature a ton of beautiful layouts made by their creative teams. Always totally inspiring!

What is your favorite Disney inspired kit?
The entire Project Mouse series is just so awesomely done. But I think if I had to pick just one favorite, it would be the Fantasyland bundle.
Fantasyland is my favorite spot in Disneyland, and Small World is my favorite ride (well… in the top 3 for sure… I can’t pick just one fave!). This kit just makes me so happy!
Do you have a favorite Disney page you have created?
That’s a tough one! I have many favorites – and as much as I love a kit and a page packed with fun elements, I find that my favorite Disney pages are the ones where my photos really shine with minimal embellishments.
This layout of my daughter at Pixie Hollow is one of my favorites. I love how vibrant the colors are!
What is your non-Disney “go-to” kit?
I’d have to pick the Project Grids templates by Amy Martin (she has a whole series of them.)
The messy stitching is a fun addition to the traditional pocket page! I used these for my latest Disney album, as well as other pocket style pages I scrap.
What advice would you give to someone just starting to scrapbook?
Tell your story! Don’t get too caught up in what the latest trends are, the “must-have” products, and what others are doing. It’s fun to explore all those areas, but make sure at the end of the day your story is on that page, because that’s what will matter most when you come back years later to revisit your memories.
Figure out what works for you and do it – and if something quits working, try something new!
Are there any Disney related project you are working on now you would like to tell us about?
I just finished scrapping our last trip – we went in the fall of 2013. We’re hoping to go early next year, so hopefully I’ll have more Disney pictures soon! 🙂
What Disney character are you most like?
Probably Woody from Toy Story.
I’m friendly, loyal, and sometimes old fashioned. I just want everyone to get along, and I can be resistant to change.
Do you have a Pinterest, Scrapstacks, or other gallery board where we can see more of your pages?
I ran across Lynnette on Scrap Stacks and all I thought was ‘I want to scrap like her’. Her pages are simple and make the memories the focus. The pops of color just make them even more exciting.
If you get a chance stop by Scrapping Is Life and see what she us up to now.
Thank you for joining us today Lynnette.
