A Few Disney Princess Scrapbooking Finds (and a couple of good buys) at Joann Fabrics

Magical Mouse Schoolhouse

Come link up for the Tiggerific Tuesday Blog Hop  . . . or Bounce hosted by Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Return to Disney and Mouze Kateerz.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers.

Today over at my Disney blog, Pursuing the Magic, Mary from Capturing Magical Memories and MC Digital Designs is sharing her safari-inspired scrapbook layouts.  Her posts have really given me some inspiration to get going on my scrapbooks.  So armed with my 10% off my entire purchase coupon for President's Day, my daughters and I made our way to Joann Fabrics to get a few supplies I needed to work on our Kilimanjaro Safaris scrapbook page.  When I got there I found a couple of exciting things, which doesn't happen too often at our Joann's because it is really small and rarely stocked.  (Though they just completely redid the store, so I am hoping that means lots of new products to go with the new look!).

First, they had several of the Cuttlebug embossing folders on clearance, so I was able to pick up a few I did not have.  I actually only own two, so I am excited to add the argyle embossing folder ($2.67), as well as the complete Freshly Picked set ($8.97 for 4 embossing folders in 2 different sizes), to my collection.  Maybe it is a sign I need to buy the Freshly Picked cartridge!

Our next stop was to find paper for a princess project I am working on for the girls, but I was looking for shades of blue.  I noticed that they have replaced the Paper Company Value packs of paper (I loved these!) with Core'dinations Premium Cardstock.  Within these premium stacks they had several themed sets.  I chose "The Prince," which included 5 sheets of 5 different colors, including the shade of blue I think I need.  Even better than finding the blue that I needed, the "old" Paper Company stacks were in the clearance section for $1.97 for 50 sheets of 8.5x11 paper.  I stocked up on those - they had the color themes Neutral, Brocade and Black & White left.

Finally, no trip to Joann's is complete without a stop at the Disney embellishments in the scrapbook aisle.  I love this section of the store. But today, I was quite excited to find Disney princess embellishments that included Tiana, Rapunzel and Mulan.  It is always easy to find Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, so I was excited to find the Disney Princess Die Cut Cardstock.  This set includes 118 pieces (see photo) and there are two of each image.  There are 10 princesses included in this one set.  The second set I found was a Disney Princess Dimensional Stickers set, which included 5 princesses (Tiana, Rapunzel, Ariel, Snow White and Mulan).  I am just excited to see more princess being included!

Now to get to work!  If you are looking for a little scrapbooking inspiration today, make sure you check our Mary's website Capturing Magical Memories and her Etsy shop MC Digital Designs.


  1. So cool to see Rapunzel and Tiana finally make the scrapbooking supplies!

  2. I was SO excited! My girls love Rapunzel, Tiana, Snow White and Cinderella, and I usually have to buy so many different sets to get just the ones we want. I will say the girls were more than excited to see Mulan in both sets too!
