Oh, hello! I am finally back with a scrapbook layout from our trip to Hawai’i. My plan is to get a minimum of one layout created each month for this trip and share it in the Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop at the end of every month. I’m using the perfectly awesome Sand & Surf collection from Bella Blvd along with a few of their other collections since they all coordinate so well!
This month there weren’t enough bloggers for a hop, but I am happy to share my stash busting layout with you today anyway! And since Simon Says Stamp’s Monday Challenge was Throwback where you could pick a previous challenge and create a project for it and they had a challenge for Make a Plan, I decided to enter this layout into that challenge since I have definite plans for scrapping this trip now.
On to my page:
Lots of good stuff here (and you can click on the image to see it bigger and click again if you want to read the journaling), but first I want to share the sketch I used from Scrapbook Challenges (#455):
As always, Scrapbook Challenges had an awesome sketch and I loved that there were small photos (since I used my phone in the very dark stretch limo while we were on our way to the airport and the pictures weren’t fabulous) and I also was so pleased to have all that room for journaling since this is the introduction to my album about our trip to Hawai’i and there was quite a bit of backstory that I wanted to share.
There were lots of words and embellishments that went so well with this page:
This was going to be a very long day of travel for us and I loved this quote about the journey as well as the awesome Chic Tags Let’s Go wood veneer pieces! I love the great colors and patterns on the patterned paper, too!!! (I used Sunday for the title font, FYI.)
I just wanted to show off a bit of a PL style card that I created (and my cute and happy hubby;-) I really felt this quote from Helen Keller was perfect for our trip (especially heading out with both my husband and son fighting the flu.) I am signed up for Kerri Bradford’s Here, There, Everywhere class and used the ideas from Lesson 4 using Silhouette Studio to add this quote to my page. The wood pattern is from the Man, Oh Man Pattern Pack 1 from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I used Kerri’s globe (it’s in another lesson to create it yourself, but I hadn’t done that yet, oops) and the fonts in order of appearance are FontleroyBrown, Another Typewriter, Channel Slanted 1, Biscotti, and akaDora. I’m pretty proud of how it turned out! Have you ever created word art to embellish your page? It’s a nice skill to have and I will say that anyone can download the Silhouette Studio software for free and print something like this out! How’s that for enabling?
How about another picture?
Last one. I printed this out from Google Maps and added some fun wood veneer from Studio Calico, enamel dots from Freckled Fawn, stamping with CTMH stamps and ink, and cute letter stickers from Bella Blvd (Ice Little Bits – probably the newest thing on my page.)
So there you have it! Cardstock from Bazzill and Doodlebug Design Inc., a die cut from the Silhouette store, a button from Basic Grey, Sakura Sepia pen, Xyron Mega Runner, Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and Zig Chisel tip glue pen round out the list of supplies!
Thanks for sticking through this wordy post! Sometimes I don’t think enough can be said about a moment in time and I guess this was one of those moments!
