Adventures with the Pack Your Bags Collection!

Adventures with the Pack Your Bags Collection!


Hey everyone! This is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) with two layouts using the new Pack Your Bags collection.  I have loved playing with this collection, it is travel themed which is great for me but is also packed full of fun bright colours which I love!



For this first layout I chose the red checked patterned paper and cut it into a frame which I placed on top of a white cardstock background. I then fussy cut around some of the flowers from one of the floral patterned papers, in one large piece. I added that to look as though the flowers were growing out from under the frame – I actually really loved how this turned out and I was so pleased to be able to use that floral paper!

I added two photos in the opposite corner. I had two photos of different sizes but because they were both portrait orientation this worked out really well.

I then set about building my clusters in the two opposite corners of the layout, incorporating the flowers in the top corner, and the photos in the bottom corner. I also added a title: Explore, from the Foam Stickers. I love the multicoloured words and they stick so well too!

My clusters consist of lots of different bits: Bits & Pieces, Chipboard Stickers, Foam Stickers, Cardstock Stickers, Decorative Brads and Enamel Dots…ALL the things! I particularly loved the ditzy arrows and hearts and I added one of these from the Rub Ons too.

I added phrase stickers from the Cardstock Stickers over on the right side and began my journaling there as well.

I finished off with a few sequins and splatters of black paint. I absolutely love this layout! Here is the link to my process video if you would like to watch along:

For my second layout today I chose to feature a large block of that fabulous cactus print paper on my background. I added my two photos and created one large embellishment cluster horizontally across the page.

I used a few squares from the 2x2 4x4 Elements paper which added pops of colour to my layout together with that fabulous title ‘let’s go on an adventure’. This title came from the Page Pieces and I love that it is multi coloured.

I cut two tags from the Tags Element paper and layered them together and tucked them behind my photos. This gave me a little journaling spot to add my date. I handwrote my actual journaling along the two vertical sides of the cactus paper.

I added so many things to my large cluster: Foam Stickers, Bits & Pieces, Decorative Brads, Chipboard Stickers and Cardstock Stickers. I also added a few sequins and finished off with splatters of white paint!

This layout turned out so fun! You will be able to find a Process Reel for this layout over on the Simple Stories Instagram account!

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
