Bermuda Honeymoon Album

Bermuda Honeymoon Album | ft. Paislee Press Aloha!

Hello Lovelies! Today I am hopping back into our Bermuda Honeymoon album for a wonderful layout I created using the Paislee Press Aloha kit. Have a look at the process video here.

For this layout I am still working on photos from our day at the St. David’s Lighthouse, and the Aloha kit make documenting these photos so easy and quick. Here is a look at the full layout.

The Aloha kit has a variety of digital elements that were just incredibly fun to incorporate into my layout. There are journaling cards, digital elements, and traveler’s notebook papers. I was drawn to the greens in the kit so I printed out lots of elements that tied in that color.

Of course I also needed journaling space, and the Aloha kit provides excellent opportunities for that. One of the great stories about this adventure was how much I don’t really love heights, but I climbed all the stairs, popped my head out of the door at the top, and then climbed right back down. Mission accomplished. Ha!

The handwritten patterned paper and the wood grain were both patterned papers that I printed just to use as cards. I resized them a bit so more of the pattern would show on the card, and then layered a few elements on top. The glitter palm fronds are from Crate Paper, the triangle word art from Studio Calico.

This title card was fun to create, I’ve used a neutral patterned background paper and then word art to create visual interest on the card. Wander where the WIFI is weak is from the Aloha kit, Let’s Go from Crate Paper, and triangle Studio Calico again.

The cards in this layout create such movement across the layout and it makes me so happy to see! There were so many beautiful photos from that adventure. Don’t be afraid to include as many photos as you like in your albums. You will be so glad you did!

Thank you for joining me today! If you love the Aloha kit as much as I do, you can grab it at The Lilypad via this link here: Paislee Press Aloha Kit.

Bermuda Honeymoon Album | A Layout Using Maps!

Hello Lovelies, today I am sharing a layout from our Bermuda Honeymoon Album! This layout incorporates a map from the island to help tell the story. I have also used products from Crate Paper Here & There, Wild Heart, and My Minds Eye Wander. Here is the completed layout.

Bermuda Honeymoon Album | A Layout Using Maps!

Maps are the perfect ephemera to incorporate into your travel albums, and pocket pages make it so easy! I recommend as you travel, pick up several copies of the maps you use, so you can cut them up and use different portions of them in your pages. For this layout I have used half of the Bermuda map. This map helps tell the story of where we were on the island when we discovered this beautiful beach. I cut the map up to fit into the pockets and added a very simple title. The title doesn’t obscure the map since it is a simple font.

I am continuing to document our day spent at Horseshoe Bay in this album. No lie, this was a favorite spot on the island for us! So my photos are different shots I was able to capture while exploring this beach. So many amazing rocks, contrasting against the blue sky and sea!

The right now stamp is from rukristin shop and is a must-have. I have used a ton of Crate Paper in my recent layouts – mostly Wild Heart, Oasis, and Here and There. They have been releasing some amazing travel collections lately, and I am here for it! The Say Cheese card is from My Mind’s Eye Wander collection.

Bermuda Honeymoon Album ft. Crate Paper Wild Heart!!!

Hello Lovelies, today I have another layout from our Bermuda honeymoon album to share with you! While touring around the island we found the Royal Dockyard and these are some of our photos from that day, plus telling a story when you don’t have any photos of that particular story. I am using the Crate Paper Wild Heart collection, plus a little My Mind’s Eye Wander. To see the other layouts in this series, you can follow this link here.

I have to tell you all that this Crate Paper collection has been so much fun to work with! I wasn’t so sure about it, but it has such beautiful patterns. I am loving every layout! For this layout I had a particular story I wanted to tell and no photo to go with it, so I took photos from that same day and placed them together on this layout. There are a couple of random photos from our travels around the island, and two photos from the Royal Dockyard. Those are important stories as well!

On the left side of the layout I used some of the cut apart pieces and ephemera from Wild Heart, and layered them onto some of the patterned papers. I also grabbed plain white card stock to make a simple journal card – all that was needed for that was a line stamp and a card stock sticker. I have used the Wild Heart stamp set to stamp some fun graphics onto my photos.

I also used my Ali Edwards Wild story stamp set to create a really easy filler card. This is a great way to incorporate a little type into your pockets!

For the right hand side I have included photos from the Royal Dockyard specifically, one of the courtyard and one of a really amazing glass artist at the Glassworks.

The story I wanted to include was about the lunch adventure we had while at the Dockyard. We ate at this fun little Irish restaurant and they had a guy playing music that day. He was pretty good, and we were enjoying it, and about half way through lunch he started singing “Just the three of us,” instead of “Just the two of us.” Alan and I just laughed and laughed at that! We still talk about that all the time, and it is easily a favorite story and song now.

I began this side of the layout with a single patterned paper, and let that be the starting point for my pockets. I stamped the butterfly image (from AE Wild story stamp set) onto plain white card stock and layered it directly onto the paper for the top card.. I journaled about our lunch adventure on a Rolodex card that was in the Wild Heart ephemera for the next pocket.

We didn’t have photos from the restaurant, but I did find an advertisement in some of the maps we brought home, so I included that here. The bottom pocket is simply a cut apart element from Wild Heart. I love this layout so much and love the stories it tells! Thank you for joining me today!

Felicity Jane Willow + Sahlin Studio Viewpoint | Bermuda Layout No. 09

Hi guys, today I am sharing a process that came about from a viewer request! Marybeth Lysen asked me if I could think of any digital kits that would coordinate with Felicity Jane kits, and boy can I! So I created this layout from our Bermuda honeymoon album using Felicity Jane Willow and Sahlin Studio Viewpoint collections.

Have a look at the completed layout here:

“/>

So let’s take a look at the left hand side, which is a pocket page. For this side I chose journal cards from the Felicity Jane Willow collection and embellished as usual.

I began this side of the layout with a photo we took of ourselves on hotel property before we left for adventures of exploring the island. On that particular day we took the buses around the island, and my story is that we discovered Alan did not care for the buses!

Alan struggles at times with motion sickness, and the buses on the island really messed with him, so that is why we decided to rent the scooters. I actually thought it was kind of hilarious that he thought the buses weren’t safe – they were really fast and the roads were really narrow – but I actually loved them! But of course I didn’t want him to be sick! I absolutely adore this photo of our helmets together. So cute!

For the right hand side I used another photo we took in the same spot, of our feet. In the process video I shared how I made that photo just a tiny bit longer so it was big enough to fit this space.

For this side I chose two of the pattern papers in the Sahlin Studio Viewpoint collection, and then embellished on top using the Willow collection. This allowed me to plan and print the photo as I needed it, and also to print just the parts of the papers I needed as well.

I kept embellishing to a minimum simply because I wanted the focus to be this strong diagonal lines created by the pattern paper. The white space in the photo was perfect for a bit of title work.

I hope you enjoyed this process today! I love using a mix of products and love that it helps use my supplies over a wide range of projects.

Creating Hybrid Layouts | Bermuda Honeymoon Album Layout No. 08 ft. Paislee Press Tour Guide!!!!

Hi guys, today I am sharing two videos all together for you!!!! First is my Photoshop tutorial for how to print your hybrid layouts. Second is my process for putting together the hybrid layout once I have printed out all the elements and papers. I am using two collections from Paislee Press: Tour Guide and Memory Keepers.


There were two layouts completed in today’s process video, first have a look at the hybrid layout. Photos are taken at the Royal Naval Dockyard in Bermuda.

I hope seeing the whole process of designing, printing, and then assembling the hybrid layout was helpful for you! I am loving creating layouts this way and using digital products but still being able to experience the depth and dimension of physical products in my hand!

This was a super fun pocket page to put together as well, about our experiences on a island scooter. Our favorite thing the entire week (and still!) is referring to them as scooter of doom and delight. We were warned when we rented them that we could get hurt, and that many tourists do get hurt, so I was terrified. Alan insisted we would be fine and he absolutely loved them.

I loved using the templates from the Tour Guide collection to add more photos to this layout. s much as I was afraid of the scooters, we still had such a great time and saw so many beautiful places on the island because of our scooter. Definitely a central part of the honeymoon story!

I know I keep saying every layout that this photo is my favorite from the trip. We could have one heck of a drinking game for every time I have said it! But this one of us in our helmets is absolutely priceless! Such great memories!

Even though I consider these layouts somewhat individual, I thought I would share what they look like together in the album itself. So much fun, such awesome pops of color here!
