Cruisin' on Sunshine!
Hi! Odessa here with some sunshine-y SN@P! pages made using the nautical Cruisin’ kit. When I first opened up Cruisin’ I was drawn to the rich blues, reds and yellows throughout the collection. I paired it with some fun photos and made a few pocket pages with it.
First up is my album cover. I used the new Robin’s Egg SN@P! binder which has a lovely blue spine that goes perfect with Cruisin’. I was torn between it and red but I wanted to keep the sea inspired colour theme going. I covered up the front of the binder with the Lost at Sea cardstock and embellished the corner with a simple cluster of Bits & Pieces, chipboard stickers and smaller stickers. I finished off the cover with a cute strip of washi where the binder spine and cardstock meet.
My first two page layout using Cruisin’ features a 6x8 layout on the left and some pockets full of fun on the right. You can really do anything in a 6x8 album, I love it!
I used some plain light coloured cardstock from the Simple Basics coordinating cardstock from the collection and layered different cardstock, stickers, chipboard and enamel dots around a watery photo. I had to include those cute nautical flags from the Cruisin’ chipboard. I used a scalloped boarder photo from the combo sticker sheet to give the page a nice edge that I echoed on the 4x6 photo on the other side of the layout.
I filled my pockets with a 4x6 photo and a couple of cut apart journaling cards from the Cruisin’ cardstock. I used oodles of phrase stickers from both the combo sticker and 4x6 sticker sheets and more enamel dots and chipboard to finish it off.
The next layout in my SN@P! album has a few more photos and cards. I just love the contrast between the peaceful blues and bright yellows in Cruisin’ so much!
The left side of this layout is more peaceful with some of my fav recent photos, a simple journal card and a few well placed embellishments. I had a square photo I wanted to use that I attached to a piece of the coordinating solid Simple Basics Cruisin’ cardstock and added some washi and chipboard accents.
The right side of this layout is packed with more fun and colour with lots of yellows. I filled up some 2x2 pockets with some of the journal cards cut from the 2x2 Elements cardstock and filled the larger pockets with a photo and some journalling. I added some more stickers, chipboard and bits and pieces to round it out and balance the peaceful feeling of the right side with a ton of fun.
I had a ton of fun using the Simple Stories Cruisin’ Collection with some fav watery photos and I hope I’ve inspired you.
