Hi Everyone! Heather is back with us and shares a classic scrapbooking technique – and it’s one we all need to be reminded of from time to time. Keep reading!

Technique: Using 4×6 Photos

When I first started scrapbooking back in 1998 most of us just had our photos printed at the local photo place or even sent the film out to be developed. The sizing options were pretty basic and typically 4×6. I still have boxes of photos to scrap from the early years which means I have a ton of 4×6 photos. I can remember a time when the thing to do was to cut your photos into fun shapes but a lot of times you lose too much of the photo, in my opinion. Sometimes the background of the photo is just as much fun as the photo itself. So today, I am scrapbooking with just 4×6 photos.

I love visiting the Walt Disney Resort during Christmas time and hopping from the different hotels onsite to see some of the amazing decorations. Of course everyone knows about the massive gingerbread house at The Grand Floridian, but have you ever had a chance to visit the beautiful gingerbread creation that is made for the Contemporary Resort?

“Gingerbread Kisses & Disney Wishes” by Heather Ribble

This year 37 Bakery Cast used over 4000 gingerbread bricks to make the Cinderella Castle 50th Anniversary Gingerbread. It was such a sight to see and the smells were scrumptious!

The ‘Gingerbread Castle’ Acrylic Embellishments from Scraps and Ink Crafts were absolutely perfect with these photos!

I also added a few sprinkles of the ‘Christmas Mini Bits’ and ‘Sparkle Gems’ throughout. 

Have you done any projects that include just 4×6 photos? Or photos of some of the amazing Christmas decorations through the WDW hotels? We would love to see them so please share on our FB page or tag us on Instagram. Hope you and your families had a very Merry Christmas! 

Thank you Heather for reminding us to keep things simple and use our 4×6 pictures. Your pictures are wonderful!

From all of us here at DCC, Have a Magical Day and a Happy New Year!
