The photo shoot meets Old School

Returning today with another project using my most favourite collection -the Heidi Swapp Old School collection. The cool blues, and eclectic patterns and designs were the perfect way to celebrate a special photo shoot we had last year in Santorini. 

I began with an enlarged photo and embellished with stickers from the Old School collection.

I added in a 6x8 photo and again added stickers to embellish my photo.

On the back I trimmed a piece of the wave pattern paper to size. I then took one of the Old School tags and typed up my journaling. I then adhered into the pattern paper and added  some machine stitching.

I added my photos into the pockets and then used the 6x8 pattern paper pad to find favourite pattern papers that coordinate with my photos. I used some of the iridescent thickers for my title and stapled tags and ephemera to my photos and 3x4 pockets. I tried to use camera icons to help tell the story of the photo shoot. 
I am totally loving using the Old School collection in my travel album. I cant wait to start my next!

Venice and Color Fresh

Sharing some new pages in my travel album today. Our European vacation included a 3 day stop over in beautiful Venice. Today I am sharing two double page spreads using the gorgeous and bright Color Fresh collection from Heidi Swapp. Let me share with you the details.

I began with a pocket page for the left and an enlarged 12 x 12 photo on the right.

I trimmed my favourite pattern papers from the Color Fresh collection to 3x4 and popped them into the pockets. I then used the variety of sticker booklets from the Color Fresh collection to embellish the photos. 

I added this Neon stickers also from the Color Fresh collection to create a subtitle on my enlarged photo.

My second spread mirrors the first with an enlarged photo and pocket page on the right.

Again I added in patten paper from the Color Fresh collection to fill the empty pockets. I used typewriter to add my journaling directly onto one of the 3x4 pieces of pattern paper.
I also added stickers onto my enlarged photo as well.

I hope you are enjoying seeing my travel album come together.
Don't forget you can find the Color Fresh collection at JoAnn's right now

Art Walk meets Venice!

Welcome back to my growing album of travel layouts of our trip to Europe last year. This time I am using the Heidi Swapp Art Walk collection and it is documenting a visit to Doge's Palace in Venice!

I looked through the 12 x 12 paper pad from the Art Walk collection and chose pattern papers that coordinated with my photos. I love the washed out feel to the papers, it gives a historical vibe.

I used some of the Thickers and stamps from the collection for my title and typed up my journaling on a piece of pattern paper that I trimmed to 3x4.

I added some Minc touches to my photo and one of the 3x4 cards by using the Art Walk stencils, Minc texture paste and Gold foil before running through my Minc machine.

For my enlarged title I used the Hello die from the Art Walk collection and a piece of pattern paper also from Art Walk to embellish simply.

You can find the Art Walk collection at JoAnn!
