Nova Scotia Vacation Scrapbook Layout
Welcome! I am excited to be hopping again with Scrapbooking Global's monthly blog hop. Thanks for stopping by! It has been a while since I have had the time and space to sit down and work on a layout.
The theme for July is travel.
I chose to do a Nova Scotia vacation scrapbook layout. I have so many pictures from trips with my children that I have yet to document. Although, not as many as I was hoping as I seem to have lost a bunch when my phone died last year :-( (a big reason to get your pictures printed and in albums!)
When my son was just under 2 years old we took a trip to Nova Scotia to visit family. This trip meant that my son would now have been coast to coast in Canada and visited all but 2 Canadian provinces and the territories. PEI and Newfoundland are on our bucket list. My daughter's first trip was also to the west coast so I would really like to get her to the east coast in the next year. It was so fun to walk on the ocean floor when the tide was out and dig for clams, mussels and all sorts of surprise crabs.
Anyhow, back to my scrapbook layout... the colours were inspired by Nova Scotia's flag.
For my Nova Scotia vacation scrapbook layout I used several products from Stampin' Up!'s Come Sail Away Suite, including the Memories & More Cards. I also used Stampin' Up!'s Under the Sea dies and Sea of Textures stamp set.
The lighthouse is heat embossed white on Poppy Parade Cardstock and the background label die was coloured with Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blends to get the shaded effect.
The red coral/seaweed was a specialty card from the Memories and more card which I sponged over on my white background first and then cut apart to stick behind my photos. You can see some of the peekaboo reverse sponging below. I also stamped a net in Night of Navy and some Artisan texture droplets in Pineapple punch to complete the background.
My title was coloured with Stampin' Blends, heat embossed in white and die cut.
I am quite pleased with how this my Nova Scotia vacation scrapbook layout turned out and I hope you've been inspired to add some more artistic elements to your pages!
