scrapbook layout: remember this

Finally I took the time to make another layout! It's been way too long. I've still been making cards and working on Project Life, but I've missed the fun of creating a big 12x12 page and my scrapbook kits from Studio Calico are starting to pile up. :) I have especially been inspired lately by Ali Edwards and her Story Stamps. The videos and inspiration she provides with the monthly subscription really made me want to make something, and not just any layout, but one that tells a story. So I chose to document how much I enjoy our vacations, even the days when we are in the car all day long. The kraft envelope contains some of the notes I took during the car ride that day.

I used the Studio Calico Poet Society scrapbook kit and Whitman add on along with my Story Stamp set. Here a few tips on how the layout came together:

  • To attach the acetate alphas, I first adhered them with washi tape before I sewed them to my page with my sewing machine.

  • Because I had a little longer journaling this time, I first wrote in pencil and then wrote with my Precision Pen on top. That way I knew it would fit in the space, and I didn't have to worry so much about messing up. I erased afterwards with a white eraser.
