Simple Stories: Bon Voyage!

Hello and happy summer! I’m back with a brand new layout featuring photos from our recent summer family vacation with the Simple Stories Cruisin’ Collection.

Each time one of my children graduate from high school, we plan a big family trip to celebrate! My son graduated from high school this year, so we planned a cruise to the Western Caribbean. It was such a BLAST! The photos on this layout today feature the excitement we all felt as we boarded the cruise ship.

I LOVE using lots of patterned paper in my scrapbook designs, but to make those patterns really SHINE, you need to give the eye a rest by incorporating solid colors as well. This is why I love the Simple Basics Kit so much! I used all three papers in the Simple Basics Kit on this page. I used the Navy/Yellow paper for the background, and then layered up the Red/Blue paper and the Teal/Cream paper as photo mats behind my main photo.

I then created an embellishment cluster across the top of my photo with the sun, cloud, and phrase stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet, as well as a few chipboard hearts and enamel dots.

I decided to do something a bit different for my journaling on this layout. Instead of using one large journaling block, I layered together three different journaling shapes from the Bits & Pieces. I LOVE the way this turned out! The different shapes stacked together are so CUTE!

I then accented the top of the horizontal photo with the “Anchors Aweigh” phrase (Bits & Pieces), a heart sticker (Combo Stickers), chipboard pieces, and a sprinkling of enamel dots.

I placed the chipboard phrase “Bon Voyage” along with the chipboard cruise ship at the bottom of the vertical photo for my page title. Next, I tucked in a few stickers behind the photo mat layers to the right of the title and then added tone-on-tone navy enamel dots to the ship and page background. (It’s amazing the fun texture and shine you can add with just a few enamel dots! I love those things SO MUCH!!!)

To cap off my design, I added strips of the yellow/white striped AHOY paper across the top and bottom of the page.

  1. Hi Jana, I hope this finds you, Kevin, and the kids well. I so enjoy getting these emails. I love the happy mail! 😀 Along with all of the great inspiration from your pages.  I just had to write and say Congratulations to Owen on his high school graduation. But seriously!! How?! Wasn’t he just a little boy on all of those scrap pages of yours?? I can’t believe how fast time goes. I hope you all had a great time on your cruise. Best wishes,  Michel
