Travel Album: inside pages

Here are some of the inside pages of the Travel Album I created for our Mad Scrappers Saturday event this week. I used patterned papers from Carta Bella 'Transatlantic Travel' range, along with a Graphic 45 Tags and Pockets Album.

I used some of the journaling cards from the paper range to add to main pages and pocket pages.
I used some black card for a mat for my photograph and one of the stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet on these pages.
There are ivory coloured tags included in the album that are a perfect size for photographs or journaling.
I've used one of the journaling cards for a photograph mat, just ready for my photographs.

Looking forward to Saturday ladies.

Travel Album

This is the outside of the G45 Tags and Pocket Album, which we will be creating with at our Mad Scrappers Scrapbook Saturday event on 24th June. I used Carta Bella 'Transatlantic Travel' paper kit to decorate.

This is what the album looked like before I covered it with the Carta Bella papers:
This is the fabulous paper range I used:
I'll show some of the inside pages nearer the date of our event. Looking forward to it ladies.

Love This layout

I created this layout from a Pink Paislee Page Kit called 'Fancy Free Heart' that I found (at half-price) at a well known high street craft store. I bought it because it contained several elements to complete a layout including a sheet of 12x12 patterned paper, die-cut heart shape, die-cut phrase and embellishments. I added a sheet of cardstock to give the page a border.

Simple layout but I love it!

Greek Islands LO

This is my take on a Facebook post by American Crafts, where they used strips of left-over patterned paper and turned it into a scrapbook page.

I took left over pieces of patterned paper from previous Mad Scrappers Kits and other projects and came up with this layout. I used patterned paper pieces from Kaisercraft Ubud Dreams, Bo Bunny Aryia's Garden, Echo Park Everyday Memories and Kaisercraft Party Time range.

All I added was a sheet of Bazzill Avalanche cardstock and some Kaisercraft Washi Tape (also from a previous kit) and added the off-cuts in strips. All other embellishments are from my own stash.
