I’m still in the process of putting together my holiday scrapbook album. If you want to see the first post which is the cover and binding method, click here. Now I will be sharing some of the pages of the inside of the album. Each page is dedicated to a different country that we visited and the 2 pages I am showcasing here are of Italy and Greece.
So as you can see from the picture above, this is the Italy page. The base paper is a lovely gold theme from the DCWV Tradewinds stack. I found an extremely apt Embossed Tag titled Good Times which is perfect for journaling. I added chipboard alphabets which are heat embossed gold as the title. For the city name, I used Chipboard Lasercuts again embossed gold as the base and on it I glued the name of city using my new favourite die – the Sizzix Doodle with Dazzle die. It’s got all letters of the alphabet in upper and lower case and it has a pretty dangling star at the bottom of each letter, giving the dazzle effect. Here are some closeups.
I guess the best thing about this alphabet die is that you snip off the stars when you want something simple and straightforward. I had preserved lots of tokens from the trip and this one is a receipt for ice-cream – yummy gelato – that I went nuts on during the trip. To see the Doodle with Dazzle Die in action, check out this video tutorial!
I used the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Borderabilities Die to frame each of the photo spaces which are all flaps allowing 3 photographs on a single space. So this page will accommodate 9 photos of Pisa.
My next page was the section devoted to Greece. In Greece we visited 2 places – Mykonos and Athens. The top layer is for Mykonos and the inside flap is for Athens. Since Mykonos is a beach town so I used some net with shells to create the theme. The shell embellishments continued all over the Mykonos page to complete the seaside feel. Each of the phtotos are framed by a Scallop Rectangle die cut offering a pretty frill to all photos. Again this page can hold 11 photos of Mykonos.
My Cruise Scrapbook Album is going to take a few more days to complete, 3 more countries to include and so many photos to print in different sizes. But I have to say, I am really enjoying it. I never tried this before and it truly is a pleasure to preserve all one’s memories so craftily!
