Traditional Scrapbook Layout - At The Fair
This past weekend, while, ehem, not being able to control myself and purchasing those Heidi Swapp Project Life core kits that everyone is going nuts over (at least I managed to split each kit and sell off 3/4 of them to cover most of what I paid), I picked up this hot buy Crate Paper Boys Rule 12x12 stack. I love the colors and patterns and wanted to make a page right away with it.
We had taken Austin to the Topsfield Fair last fall, and I knew I had a few ride photos that would go nicely with this line, so I went to work.
This layout is based off of one of Shimelle's sketches. I didn't embellish much on this layout, rather I used the paper stack to add bits to the page.
The arrow paper in this stack is probably my favorite, and I loved cutting out a section and adding it as a mat behind the three smaller photos. I also cut out some of the ticket paper and a strip from the black patterned paper for a border. I used a card from the Amy Tangerine HSN exclusive Project Life mini kit for my journaling.
More of the black paper at the top, layered with a tag from the paper stack, and a "tickets" sticker from the October Afternoon Midway collection. The alpha thickers I used are the American Crafts Roster Alpha.
Simple on the embellishing but bold on the patterns. I loved working with this paper stack!
