After attending the press day for the in-home release of Inside Out, I feel very closely connected to the movie. But even before that I knew I wanted everyone to see it!
I'm not the only one who feels that Disney and Pixar have done something very special with this movie. Check out what's going on on Tumblr:
Combine that with what Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera said about how Inside Out has been used in working with kids with autism and I'm more than a little blown away!
All that aside, Inside Out is just a hugely entertaining movie for the whole family, and now I have a new craft to share that's based on the film!
How to Make an Inside Out Scrapbook
I received a fun pack in the mail to help my family celebrate the release of Inside Out. It was perfect timing because I wanted to do something special with pictures from our summer and fall family outings.
The pack contained the following:
- A scrapbook album in golden yellow (a key Inside Out color)
- Inside Out stickers
- Glitter glue
- Self-adhesive photo corners
- Poppy-shaped punch
- Neon Sharpies
- Adhesive foam stickers
- Double-sided adhesive runner
I printed out some of my favorite family pictures then took everything right over to my sister's house so she could help me put the scrapbook together.
I'll state it for the record right now: I'll always need assistance with anything scrapbooking. I'm not crafty by nature, but my sister is extremely talented and creates wonderful things. I wanted and needed her help!
The first page just shows “Joy”. While it's themed with stickers of the Inside Out character Joy, I like that the pictures show our happy family!
I swear, I hardly blinked and she had several beautiful pages set up. Adhesive and some of those great decorations completed the look.
If I had tried to do it on my own, I'd still be working on it!
These two pages are my favorite because there's a page dedicated to each of my kids' birthdays.
Piper and Haiden turned 6 and 7 years old in July. Their birthdays are just a few days apart, so they each had a special day but we also dedicated one day to celebrating both of their birthdays!
Disney has also provided you with instructions for how to make an Inside Out scrapbook along with free Inside Out printables to help with your designs!
Creating a scrapbook of some of your favorite memories with your child would be an amazing gift (especially paired with Inside Out on Blu-ray and DVD!).
Inside Out with Riley's First Date and other bonus features is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD!
About Inside Out:
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what’s going on inside their head? Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out” takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer.
Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy.
She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness.
It’s “an instant classic,” raves Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times.
Experience it like never before on Disney Blu-ray!
