Traveler’s Notebook Spread with Magnolia Moments

09/28/18

Hello Friends! Maryám here with you today to share a Traveler’s Notebook spread I created with the beautiful Magnolia Moments Collection.

project02 copy

For today’s project, I used the #2934 Our Story paper. I cut it in two strips, one for each side of the spread, and also added a sticker from the stickers strips set.

The photo I’m using today is from my mom and my sister and is from ten years ago when she was around 4 years old. I wanted to document that moment and this collection had so many embellishments that coordinated perfectly with the photo.

Here are some close-ups:

Vacation Mini Album

09/27/18

Hello Fancy Pants fans. I have a mini album for you to share, made with awesome “On Our Way” collection. I have been playing with it this month because I have plenty of our travel photos to scrap. I am still in this colorful and joyful mood and I am not in a hurry to move to fall projects. Summer is my favorite season and I am going to stick to it as long as possible.
This time I was inspired by all the planes included into the ephemera pack. We usually travel by car so I do not airport or plane pictures, that would go well with those bits and pieces. What I do have is a bunch of photos taken in Toulouse while we visited Aeroscopia – Museum of Aviation.
1
I used a ready base – 4×4 Insta Album from Fancy Pants. It has page protectors included and basically all you have to do it to slip photos and embellish the cover.
2
I printed few 4*4 inches photos along with few collages of smaller pictures. Some of the pages are made of patterned paper. I used 6*6 paper pad to cut them out.
3
I also love to include tags and ephemera pieces between the pages of my album to add some new shapes and place for journaling. It makes album more interesting and interactive.
4
It took me less than an hour to make this mini album. I tried to keep things simple as I tend to overembellish :) It was fun to go back in time and visit Aeroscopia once again.

“On our way” collection is so fun and versatile and I really enjoyed making all my projects with it. Love the bold colors and fun patterns. If you would like to purchase it, ask in your local stores. You can also visit Make Pretty Life Shop.
Thank you for stopping by.

Colorful Zoo Layout

09/26/18

Hello friends,

Today I have highlight the On Our Way collection with a trip to the zoo.  I feel like maybe this layout is highlight the tags that are part of the collection and the rainbow paper!!  They both worked so well for the banner idea I had in mind for this occasion.

Zooo-Staged

Zoo--left-corner

Zoo-Right-corner

If you like at both of the above photos, you can see that I used the tags as background papers behind my photos.  The different colors and designs help bring depth and character behind each picture.

Zoo-Flair

I added the cloud flair like it is a could floating over our heads!

Zoo---Square

All the colors worked with the colors in my photos.  I love the colors in this nontraditional travel collection.  You can use it for so many different memories.

Thanks for stopping in today.

I have been saving this envelope for a loooong time. It is the perfect size to drop a gift card into it. It just needed a little bit of decorating!

I know a lot of people whose children go on their mission or to college, or studying abroad.  I can see myself giving my children a card like this lol. I’m coming too, my bags are packed hahaha.

My best advice is to never overthink a project, and everything looks better popped up with foam tape.
Have a great day!

The Road Less Traveled

09/18/18

Hello crafty friends. It’s Anna here with my newest project created with “On Our Way” collection. I just love those bright colors and fun graphics included in this line. I think it’s my favorite Fancy Pants collection so far. I am a big fan of every summer / travel themed items because I love scrapbooking our family vacations. There are always so many feelings and memories behind those pictures. This time I decided to use photo of a splendid view we had on Monte Capane while we visited Elba Island.
1-2
I wanted the picture to be a main focus of my page so I printed it big. With large photos on layouts you don’t have much space left for embellishing. I used this narrow strip under the picture to add colorful stripes of paper cut of 6*6 paper pad. I decided to use grey paper called “Now bording” as a neutral background.
2-2
We took a car trip around the Elba Island, enjoying views, climbing mountain and taking some beach time. That’s why I picked some retro cars from ephemera pack along with mountain silhouettes as an embellishments. Title came easy by connection big “adventure” with Elba word created with alpha stickers.
3-2
I love how colorful this layout is and how well you can see this wonderful view with sea and mountains on it. Big pictures look so well on pages.
That is all for today. Thank you for stopping by and see you soon.
