The Ultimate Getaway Scrapbook Layout

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project features Close To My Heart’s Wanderful Paper Packet and Complements.  I am getting ready to go on a small vacation with my family and thought that a getaway scrapbook layout is a great project to share with you today.  

This is a simple one page layout created without any stamping, I plan to expand this to a two-page layout in the future when I have all my photos printed.

If you are visiting my blog from the Heart 2 Heart Challenge "Around The World: Maps!" welcome to my blog and I hope you like today's layout project.

Tools: Trimmer, Scissors, Acrylic Blocks

CTMH Products Used:

  • Wanderful Paper Packet 
  • Wanderful Complements
  • Colonial White Card Stock 
  • Flaxen Card Stock (2 are included in the Wanderful Paper Packet) 
  • Flaxen Extra Thick Twine
  • Liquid Glass

  1. The base layer for the page two layout is a 12" X 12" Colonial White Card Stock.
  2. Using a tape runner, adhere layer C on the right side edge of layer A.
  3. Adhere layer D on the left side edge of layer A.
  4. Adhere layer B on the top edge of the layout.
  5.  Adhere layer E on the center of layer C and D below layer B
  6. Add the stickers (from the complements) "Here", "There" and "Everywhere" on top of layer C in a diagonal pattern.
  7. Add the sticker (from the complements) "The Ultimate Getaway" on the top of layer D for a title.
  8. Add the (2) 4 X 6 Flaxen Photo Mats on layer D.
  9. Use the liquid crystal and add a line on the left and right edges of layer E.  Add the Flaxen Extra Thick Twine and trim to size.
I recommend using CTMH Liquid Glass or Bonding Memories glue pen to adhere the layers and 3-D Foam tape to give the accent dimensions. Feel free to add your own touch to this elegant scrapbook layout.
