Cruise layout 1 - itinerary

Here is the first page in my cruise scrapbook. I decided to do a summary page of our trip. I think this is a great way to keep track of the dates and stuff so that when you are like "Ok, did we go to Key West first or was it Costa Maya? And where were we for New Year's Day?" then you can just look on the first page and find all your answers!

I used a different tags and scraps for each day. I like the "scrappy" look and if you have room it would be cute to use a picture for each day. Since I didnt have room I only used a couple pictures but of course I will have pages for every day so there really is no need. I like how the square stiched border adds to the layout and off-center-ness of it all.

For the title I used my cuttlebug letters. I am truly adoring this awesome tool! Its so simple and you never run out of letters! The font has so many possibilities and uses.

Supply List:

  • ink- chocolate chip
  • paper- chocolate, passport (making memoreis), old olive, collage press tag sheet, velum, ledger esquire (making memories)
  • other- tim holtz tags, hodgepodge hardware, spiral punch, sewing machine, cuttlebug, olivia dies, creative memores tag punch

happy new year!

Ok so this is a bit belated but happy New Year to you all! I am sorry I haven't posted in so long it's just that school has been so busy and sports and vacation and everything. I have exams next week but after that I think I will have time to post. I will soon be scrapping my many cruise pictures so you can look forward to that. Also my anual scrapbooking get-together is comming up in febuary so I hope to get some stuff done with that too. Thanks so much for reading!
