First off, you should have come from Amanda Haynes's Blog. If not, please HOP on over to Erica's Blog to start at the beginning (or recover where you got lost!) and enjoy the entire ride!
Next, if you're in the right spot, please have a look at the layouts I created and leave comments below (I LOVE feedback!). Also, you're more than welcome to become a follower if you like what you see! Then, HOP on over to the next blog in our lineup and keep the fun rolling!
For my designs, I decided to use Going Places, Designers Calendar, Ocean of Words, Gypsy Font and 50 States. I made two layouts, each one using elements from some of these cartridges, and they are pictured below along with their "recipe" if you wish to scraplift. :) (Feel free! Imitation truly IS the sincerest form of flattery!)
My first layout is called "Road Trip" (betcha can't guess why LOL). This is perfect for any motorcycle enthusiasts in your family (like my parents) who love nothing better than to take to the open road on their bikes!
Here is the "recipe" for this layout:
- Background Paper is from Destinations Paper Pack by Colorbok
- Other stuff cut from basic cardstock from my stash
- Words “Road Trip” from Going Places cart cut at W: 4.82 H: 4.65
- Motorcycles from Going Places cart cut at W: 5.44 H: 2.65
- Interstate Sign (white part) from Going Places cart cut at W: 3.63 H: 3.47 (then I used my Gypsy to “hide” other lines and just cut the top part in red and then the bottom part in blue for layering)
- Georgia state outline from 50 States cut at W: 2.16 H: 5.00
- Number “41” from Designers Calendar cut at W: 1.12 H: 1.59
Next is my "Catchin' Waves" layout - perfect for a beach trip!
The "recipe" for this layout is as follows:
- Background Paper is from Zoo Page Kit by The Paper Studio
- Word “waves” and waves on photo mats are cut from some scrap water-looking paper found in my stash
- Photo mat waves from Ocean of Words cut at W: 6.31 H: 1.47 (cut on Gypsy x2 but flipped one to face the other direction) and trimmed to fit mat; then "popped" with 3D adhesive dots
- Word balloon at top from Ocean of Words “Catchin’ Words” feature cut at W: 8.44 H: 4.65 (then used the Gypsy to “hide” the word “words”)
- Word “waves” from Gypsy Font cut at H: 1.83 and welded with the Gypsy so that total width was 3.64
As I said before, any and all comments are welcome! Please let me know what you think! :) Become a follower if you look my blog over and like what you see!
