One of the collections I was assigned to work with for Echo Park Paper’s booth at Creativation in January was the Go, See, Explore collection
. It is now available and I get to share with you my creations!
I had a lot of fun with this one! I really love vacation collections because they can be used for so much more than vacations … think “journey” through life, goals, graduation, school, boys, and more! Here is what I made.
The Go See Explore collection
was perfect for documenting my family’s adventure to San Francisco a few years ago. The bright colors and icons reminded me of all the wonderful city sights we enjoyed while we were there.
I layered my photos on top of the light blue card cut from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper
and then clustered together a variety of circular elements to the left of the photo.
I used a post card to the right of my photo to house my journaling. I cut out the city skyline from another one of the 4×6 Journaling Cards
and layered that along the bottom of the postcard. To the right of my journaling, I tucked in a few of the tag die cuts
I layered together a word sticker
and die cut to serve as my title, and then added detail to the bottom of the photo band by layering together two of the border stickers from the Elements Sticker Sheet

SEE THE WORLD CARD
This cute card is perfect for the graduate or jet setter in your life! Layer up a couple of the postcards cut from the You Got a Postcard paper
with the cute globe and car images
and you’ve got a card that will have anyone itching to hit the road!

Is someone in your life heading off in a new direction? Maybe they are graduating school, leaving home, moving to a new town, or starting a new job? This would be the perfect card to encourage them to chase their dreams!

Vacation collections are some of my very favorite ones to work with! I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects with the Go, See, Explore collection
Thanks for stopping by!
Have you ever had so much fun creating a page that you wouldn’t mind making it again? Well, I say, go for it!
For example, last fall I submitted the following page to Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. They liked the page, but asked if I could recreate it in a two-page format for their readers. I did exactly that, with different photos, and now I have two pages finished in my albums.
And here is quick snapshot of the two-pager …
The photos are from different years, so they won’t be right next to each other in our albums. I’m willing to bet that someone looking through our albums, including my kids and husband, will be none the wiser! It feels great to “kill two birds with one stone,” so to speak, and complete two great layouts for our books.
Have you tried this approach on any of your pages? This same thought process would also be a great way to convert one page sketches to two-page sketches when you are looking for inspiration.
Give it a go and let me know what you think!
Have a great week!
I am so completely excited about this announcement! A big THANK YOU to Simple Stories for this amazing opportunity!
