Life is full of moments, big and small, that we want to capture and treasure forever. The Here + There Collection from Simple Stories is perfect for documenting those special moments, whether they happen close to home or far away. Today, I’m sharing a fun and creative way to use this collection to preserve your travel memories.
The Here + There Collection features a variety of fun and colorful designs that are perfect for documenting your travel moments. Last April, my daughters and I went on a whirlwind trip to New York City and Washington, D.C. Little by little, I’ve been creating layouts that will live in a 12x12 album. On this project, I used the patterned papers to create an eye-catching background for photos taken from the plane as we began our flight home.
To begin, I cut the bottom half of the Travel Therapy patterned paper along the printed lines to create the triangle-shaped cutouts. Next, I stitched the paper in place atop the You Are Here patterned paper and folded the strips of paper upward to create texture.
Next, I used chipboard frames with my photos and adhered to the page. To make my journaling tag fit behind the photo on the right, I used foam tape to pop it off the page. I then folded washi tape in half and sewed it to the tag, making it is easy to pull it out from behind the picture.
Embellishments were next, and I chose to use a bit of everything from the collection. The flowers are always my favorite, so there are quite a few of them layered on and around the pictures.
To create the title, I used the foam sticker and chipboard sentiments beneath the photos. I love how the colors in the title match the background papers perfectly!
To finish the project, I clustered enamel dots throughout the layout.
The Here + There Collection from Simple Stories is perfect for capturing life's little moments, whether they happen close to home or far away. This collection, as with all Simple Stories products, is perfect for making fun and creative layouts that showcase your memories and tell your story. Happy scrapping!
