“Nature” & “Adventure” by Erin Blegen

by admin

Good morning! Today I’m here to share with you a couple of projects to wrap up the month, featuring the “Travel” theme. I have both a layout and a card to show you today, so let’s get to it!

“Nature”

As I mentioned in my post earlier this month, as a mom of 3 little ones, traveling is just not a part of our lives at this time. However, there are endless beautiful places around where I live to which we travel almost daily, usually by four-wheeler. I love that my kids get to experience the beauty of nature all around us and they always enjoy it when we take another adventure to one of these places.

There’s just no competition for the titles available from Scrap FX! I’m sure I say it every time, but I just LOVE them. Here I’ve used my finger to unevenly coat my title with gesso before applying a sandy shade of ink to blend with my layout. I’ve also added Stickles and bling to the flowers on this beautiful “Nature” title.

I’ve created a pretty little embellishment out of this piece from the “Railway Station Pack“. After painting with gesso, I stamped the flourish vine and added this pretty little cameo.

I wrote my journaling on this pretty new journaling tag pack, “Journal Notes KRAFT“. I’ve again painted it with gesso, inked and stamped along the edges, and added a small cameo as a pull tab. I’ve also used the little fan out of the “Asian Embellishments” pack to add interest to my cluster.

Now that you’ve seen my layout, I’ll share my card with you :).

“Adventure”

I love small titles like this one, from the “Camping Wordlet Theme Pack“. They’re perfectly suited for a card. The railroad track and sign are from the “Railway Station Pack“- perfect little additions to support a travel-themed card. And finally, another tag from the “Journal Notes KRAFT” pack adds the perfect backdrop for my title. All pieces have been painted with gesso, inked and stamped for a beautiful coordinating piece.

And that does it for me today! I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at some of the travel-related pieces available from Scrap FX. If you’d like to see more, have a look through their store HERE– and get your local scrapbook store in on the action! These hot little pieces take ANY project to the next level.

Take care and see you again next month!

  1. I Love how you found a different spin on the embellishment packs you used, gets one thinking of all the different uses other packs can be put to! Great work and very inventive!
