ScrapHappy and Scrapbook Wonderland have merged under one name. ScrapHappy will be the home for all scrapbooking information, updates, tips and tricks, blog and videos as we move into 2019.
You’ll see this reflected in name changes over the next few weeks on all platforms.
We want to bring a unified approach to our online presence as it might not be obvious that these two companies have been working together to bring you inspiration, tips, tricks and scrapbooking challenges.
What will change?
You’ll now find even more inspiration on the ScrapHappy website. Look for the new BLOG, the ScrapSmarter sessions and more as we find new, innovative ways to have more fun as we DO MORE scrapbooking!

At the end of the year it’s nice to look back and pay tribute to your year. A great way to do that is to create a Top Photos of the year layout.
I’d suggest looking through your photos of the year and seeing how many of them feel like “the best of the best”.
That’s definitely not an easy task! I try not to create too many rules.
For a layout like this I knew I’d need extra space, so I created a two-page spread.
I used a kit from The Wild Hare Kits for this layout and made the layout during the December Scrapbook Live event. The Wild Hare Kits are custom-curated just for you according to your style. This kit was perfect for me… perhaps you’d like to try a kit too? Pop over to The Wild Hare Kits and fill our your style profile. There’s no commitment and you can order kits as often as you wish.
Here’s the replay:
Scrapbook Live December 2018 - YouTube
There was some calendar paper in the kit and I fussy cut the names of the months. My kit didn’t have the acrylic stars this month, but they were left over from another month, and they really helped to tie the star theme together.
I found the 2018 die cut right after the live event. It’s been sitting on my desk since I had used the negative of the die cut on my January layout.
I added some silver and diamond Stickles glitter glue to the 2018 die cut. I love that the zero has a star in the middle… it was such a perfect find for this page!
I added a list of details to go with the photos and I labelled each photo with a small silver metallic number.
I also added some star stickers in between the items on the list.
Whether or not you create this type of layout I hope you’ll take some time to look back at the layouts you created this year. Give yourself a pat on the back for the stories you’ve managed to capture this year.
The prompt for Day 3 of LOAD1018: Broadway Rhythm was inspired by the broadway musical Brigadoon. It’s a story of a world hidden away.
My story prompt was:
Tell about a book, play, or film that created a whole world you got lost in. Why did it make you feel that way?
And for technique:
Leave lots of room on your page for a good, long story. Bonus if you include something Scottish or plaid on your page!
I immediately thought of Harry Potter. The books, the movies, the entire magical world that is hidden just out of sight of the “muggles”. I’ve never scrapped the story of how I was introduced to the series and how it’s impacted me, so it was time!
