This next page is for my Project Stash book. This is a simple layout, just grouped the photos and stacked the paper bits. I added a swipe of white paint around all of the edges of the papers, but didn't do the photos. Now I wish I had, but oh, well. Then I popped on a few flowers. Hee Hee. Our road trip was earlier this month, you know, back when the gas prices were $3.65 a gallon instead of $4.20. Yikes.
The photos were taken from the front seat; I just lifted the camera over my head and started snapping without looking at the screen. This is what we look like during a calm moment of traveling, when they're not fighting over seats, messing with the dog, or trying to change the radio station.
Simple Stories supplies I stashed in my Project Stash album? I used them on the next page, and for some other compartmentalized pages. I just love them! Love the colors, love that you can do the basics with them but they still look awesome.
Even though I tend to do a lot of journaling on tags and tucking them into the page, every once in a while I have a journal-heavy page. This is obviously one of those pages. So again, I kept it simple and used the Simple Stories Happy Day line.
The quickest thing in the world to jazz up a page is to add some type of banner. The pieces do not have to be the same size, shape, or type. They can be used for a title or just for embellishment. I hand cut these banner pieces and used some 3D foam tape to pop them up. Twine and 2 grommets finished off the banner, then I sprinkle just a couple of orange felt flowers and the page was done. The journaling took longer than putting the page together!
And one last page from the Project Stash album. Sometimes I just want pictures, even though it is a scrapbook, so I grouped these up into a large block, grabbed some OLD stickers from my stash for the title, and did one line of journaling across the top above the photo block. I love the almost flowery Spanish style background paper!
Basically, what I'm trying to say is Keep It Simple. And it doesn't have to perfect.
And flowers make everything better.
