U.S. Destinations Paper Packs and Stickers - Creative Memories - Noreen Smith6However you may be shocked at how nicely they may work with a number of different sorts of layouts too! For instance, my household and I just lately spent some Spring break on Vancouver Island the place we loved mountaineering the Wild Pacific Path and visiting the historic Amphitrite Lighthouse close to Ucluelet, British Columbia. I knew the U.S. Locations Nice Lakes Paper Pack and Stickers featured lighthouses, so I got down to see if I may make the enjoyable Nice Lakes papers work with my very Canadian images! U.S. Destinations Paper Packs and Stickers - Creative Memories - Noreen Smith5First, I tackled the U.S. Locations paper with the geographical picture of the Nice Lakes printed within the higher right-hand nook. The again facet of this paper was a delicate total fish sample, so I reduce the paper proper underneath the picture with the 12-inch Trimmer. U.S. Destinations Paper Packs and Stickers - Creative Memories - Noreen Smith4Then I flipped the strip with the geographical picture over to point out the fish sample on the other facet, butted it tightly beside the bigger piece exhibiting the blue water sample and added just a few dabs of Tape Runner Adhesive throughout the seam to “weld” the 2 items collectively. (TIP: when you’ve got some previous washi tape that you just don’t love, this can be a nice use for it!) Then I utilized one of many blue seagull border sticker strips throughout the whole seam to firmly maintain the 2 items collectively.

I may have used it as-is, however I made a decision to trim off ¼” from either side and mount it onto a 12 x 12 piece of Blue Cardstock for a little bit of distinction and extra stability. I additionally added a ten” x 3” strip of the enjoyable lighthouse stamps paper above the sticker strip which added a number of persona and introduced in just a few extra colours. U.S. Destinations Paper Packs and Stickers - Creative Memories - Noreen Smith2With the bottom web page full, all that was left to do was to mat my images on some extra of the Nice Lakes papers and prepare them on the web page and add some stickers. I additionally dug out the elaborations from CM’s Serene Waters assortment (which was launched final summer time!) that options the identical palette and imagery and located the right little journal field die-cut embellishment to layer underneath the stickers. U.S. Destinations Paper Packs and Stickers - Creative Memories - Noreen SmithTotal, this was a fast structure to place collectively – even with the slicing and welding of the bottom web page! I like how I used to be in a position to make use of a U.S. Locations paper pack meant to focus on the Nice Lakes space and adapt it to make use of with my images, and I LOVE the way it additionally works with earlier CM collections – so versatile and helpful!

Irrespective of the place you’re travelling this summer time, I’ll guess considered one of these U.S. Locations mini-collections and different CM collections will work completely for you! Blissful travels!
