Travel | Simple Stories | Here & There

Thursday 25 May 2023

Hey everyone! Here is a new layout using the super lovely Here & There collection by Simple Stories. This collection is travel themed and is full of lovely earthy colours with traditional travel icons such as suitcases, tickets, passport stamps etc. I admit that this collection didn’t capture my eye at first,  as I naturally prefer a brighter colour scheme, BUT once I sat down to use it I was hooked!  The colours are completely perfect for travel and as always, the icons, phrases and patterns are absolutely spot on.

I particularly wanted to use the flight board paper on my layout as my photos are taken at the airport, but it was a little busy to use as a whole sheet. I cut a section to use on the right side of the layout together with the passport stamp pattern on the reverse of that sheet. I paired these with the narrow colourful stripes to bring in plenty of colours.

I added my two photos and then added lots of embellishments around them, forming two clusters either side. I used Floral Bits, fussy cut passport stamps, Cardstock stickers to create the cluster on the right, and mostly used the Foam Stickers to create my title and cluster to the left of the photos. I also used that fabulous chipboard plane, and chipboard phrase ‘we’re on our way’.

I mirrored the colourful stripes on the very left edge of the layout and also created a little cluster down the bottom. This was to balance out the very large photo cluster – it worked really well.

I finished off with some label stickers from the Cardstock Stickers, added Decorative Brads and Enamel Dots and also handwrote in my journaling. I also added a few splatters of white paint.

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you have enjoyed this layout. Do check out the Here & There collection as it really is wonderful to work with.

Happy scrapping
