Immediately, partially one, I’m sharing a course of video of how I put collectively my 12 x 12-inch conventional web page from our 2019 journey to Prince Edward Island on Canada’s east coast. At any time when I doc my travels, I usually scrapbook by breaking down my journey into sections, creating pages centered on the occasions of the times and locations we visited. Utilizing the attractive daring designs of the Easy Tales Right here + There assortment, I made a decision to scrapbook our first-day recollections driving across the south a part of the island. 

As a web page opener, I made a decision to focus on the story from Argyle Shore Provincial Park. I liked the rainbow “Journey Remedy“ paper and determined to make use of that as my background. This can function my coordinating color scheme for my pocket web page.  I layered this with white cardstock and a 6 x 8-inch piece of navy paper from the paper pack on prime and used the color nook squares from the journaling tags to outline the white house. 

Utilizing the 2 3 x 3-inch chipboard frames as my information, I printed three photographs, together with one 6 x 7″ and two 3 x 3″. My solely standards for choices was they needed to be “finest” or “favorite” photographs from our hike alongside the crimson sand seaside. I enlarged the picture of my household strolling down the steps to the trail to the seaside and included smaller-sized pictures of my daughter constructing a rock inukshuk in addition to an image of the attractive shoreline. 

Lastly, I used chipboard components, which included geotags and arrows, in addition to items from the journal tags to create a diagonal line to direct the attention from the underside left to the highest right-hand aspect of the web page. I like that these components pop off the web page! They praise my journey photos so properly and I’ve sufficient to hold over to my pocket web page so I embellish my further photographs. 

Be sure you verify again subsequent month as I share how I complement this conventional web page by creating the coordinating pocket web page, utilizing the Easy Tales, Right here + There journey assortment.
