Hello it’s Kristine Davidson with you today! I am sharing a layout I created using the NEW Travel Notes collection. I love this collection because it can also be used for awesome boy pages! I created this with something different in mind. I wanted to use all those gorgeous colors in this collection but I didn’t have a “travel” picture. I used this photo of my nephew and started adding chipboard as well as Bits and Pieces. It Worked!

I used a piece of black cardstock as my base because I wanted the layout to be framed. That enhances the colors for me and since the title in the word Explore was black – it would be perfect.

I cut up pieces of pattern paper different widths and the same length (9”).  I added the embellishments in random areas and my title in the centre. I didn’t add much for journaling except the date and our location.

I did add texture to my layout by sewing the edges of all those paper strips. This also helps unify all those patterns. I added popdots under my photo, some stickers and also chipboard pieces to give my layout some dimension.  

As you can see – this collection can be used for something other than “Travel “ related pages!

Hello Friends! 

It is Kristine Davidson here and I'm sharing a simple layout with you today. It was created using the gorgeous collection called ROMANCE

The picture is from my cousin who recently got married and was nice to let me use her pictures for my scrapbooking pleasure! 

I didn't go crazy on this layout with tons of paper or even layers for that matter. I saw this brick background and immediately fell in love with it. It's perfect! 

Here is my layout called You Make My Heart Happy.

In order to get a few details on my page I used the outline of the heart as a focus and sewed around the edge to give the heart some definition. I added some white ink splats as well as green and red. The paint just adds a bit of texture to my page as well. I didn't use any other paper but I did add some bits & pieces and used the sticker as my title again. 

You must see a trend in my page titles!? I usually don't overthink my titles. If a sticker or diecut jumps at me then that's what I use! No Stress!

I really love this page and could see this in a frame ;)

Hello Friends! It's Kristine Davidson here today and I'm sharing a layout I created using the latest Romance Collection

I must admit that I do love white backgrounds but on occasion a little blank with a punch of color just makes me happy! 

This is a layout called Our Love Story and it is of my cousin who recently got married last July. 

I love adding little bits of details to a page and the mini hearts from the 4x6 sticker pack has tons of little extras to add to a layout. 

Adding a few Bits & Pieces is always something I enjoy and lots of dimension to a layout with some pop dots is a must. 

I didn't add a prominent title to my page, instead I used one of the stickers and used that as my title. I find the butterflies and the 'love' chipboard add so many great details to this page. I had to add a little bow with black twine to make it complete!
