Happy Tuesday! Kim here with a fun Aloha layout I finished up not too long ago.
Do you ever find a collection of papers and embellishments and immediately know what photo[s] you would use with it? I LOVE when that happens, because that’s a big part of the creative process taken care of…sometimes the hardest! This was just the case when I saw the Sun-Kissed collection from Creative Memories!
We were fortunate to get to Hawaii for the very first time in February…this paper pack and matching embellishments screamed ALOHA to me! I instantly knew what I wanted to do with this layout, so it came together quite quick…which is so not my norm!
I started out with a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock, my favourite base to work on. It’s 110lb cardstock and is a wonderful sturdy base to layer on. I trimmed it down so that I could layer it on top of one of patterned papers to create a border, which always draws the eyes into the story!
I pulled out some Clearsnap ColorBox Chalk Inks and an Art Screen to create some gentle, colour swirls on my background. It adds a little visual interest on the white cardstock.
I had so much fun layering the dimensional embellishments from this collection…they could not have been more perfect!
As I mentioned, mind had a pretty set plan for this layout right from the start, my title was no different. That big, beautiful Pineapple Pow drink…needed the ALOHA SPIRITS title! [not to be confused with Aloha Spirit]
The title turned out great! I cut it out four times with my electronic die cutting machine; four from the Superstock and one from the blue patterned paper! I stuck them all together using Tombow Mono Multi adhesive and honestly you would think it was a store-bought chipboard, die cut!
A simple date and location was written with a Creative Memories marker and my “journaling” is a photo of the drink ingredients from the menu!
When a collection speaks so strongly to “creative YOU” …buy it and let your scrapbook page come to life!
