August Scrapbook Club Layout - Travel Pages

This is the layout we did at our last Scrapbook Club meeting. It's a timeline page, so the photos will go all over along the map line. I used Kraft as a base, then layered some Brocade Blue on it. Then we sliced up some maps* to layer onto the Brocade Blue. I thought this would be a neat idea if you have a map from where you went on vacation - you could use it as part of your scrapbook page.

For the letters, I used marbling technique by stamping the letters (from Big Deal Alphabet) first in Brocade Blue. Then I took a Stampin' Around Wheel (I used Leaf Prints, but it doesn't matter which one you use) and rolled it in Close to Cocoa ink. Then I smeared that on the inked letter stamp and stamped it on some Whisper White cardstock. Finally, I punched it out with my 1 3/8" square punch and layered it on a Kraft square.

The little squares in the corners of the page are actually flaps that lift up so you have more space for journaling. Each one is a 2 x 4" piece of Brocade Blue, scored and folded in half. Then there's a 1 3/8" square-punched piece of map on it, along with a button from Fresh Favorites II that's been tied with some linen thread and attached with a mini glue dot.

*For the maps, I'm a member of the Alberta Motor Association, so I get free maps from them! I just went online and checked off the maps I wanted and they mailed them to me.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous long weekend!

Blessings to you,
