Hey everyone! This is Shu-Wen (aka ChouxPuffCreations https://www.instagram.com/chouxpuffcreations/) coming back to Show & Share my finished project for one of the pages I had planned out in my Plan With Us blog post featuring the Go Scrapbook Kit! If you haven’t checked it out already, I shared the process video for how I created the base for this interactive page (and more!) in that last blog post (https://aliedwards.com/2023/06/go-scrapbook-kit-sp....
I decided to use one of the foundation pages that I had created in that video to make a page in my 5x8 album documenting our trip to Vancouver for a board game convention last year. With the “Story #1” and “Story #2” prompt, I decided to document the two major highlights of our trip: the board games and the food! First, I used the typewriter font stamp in the Ali Edwards / Laura Wonsik “Alpha Varieties” stamp set to stamp out the word “Games” beside “Story #1” and the word “Food” beside “Story #2” to indicate which pull-out was documenting which story.
Then, I typed up two blocks of journaling, printed them out on white cardstock slightly smaller than the size of my two tabbed inserts, and adhered them onto the fronts of the patterned paper. I also decided to include a black label sticker from the Scrapbook Kit on each of the two tabs on the inserts; I love how the stickers fit perfectly in those tabs!
Next, I created two photo collages corresponding to my documented stories and adhered those to the backs of each of the pull-outs. I decided to add some more of the black label stickers from the kit to point out some of the particularly note-worthy photos in my collages.
To accompany this page in my layout, I printed out a full-page photo of Kevin and I standing at the entrance of the convention hall. To pull together the colors across the photo page and my journaling page, I added the orange circle chipboard frame to the bottom left corner of my photo page, cutting off part of the circle so that the text on the frame is still intact, but making sure that it didn’t cover up any parts of our bodies in the photo. Next, I adhered one of the circle label stickers from the Travel 2022 Main Kit Sticker Sheet (https://aliedwards.com/shop/travel2022-main-kit-st... into the center of that chipboard frame. I also adhered an orange puffy star sticker from the Storytelling Basics Bundled Kit (https://aliedwards.com/shop/storytelling-basics-bu... onto the circle label sticker. Together, those three elements helped to anchor the orange in the patterned paper across my photo, as well as the orange in the SHUX sign in my photo. I also added a yellow puffy star sticker to my photo to across the yellow color from the arrows on the patterned paper in my interactive element, and a couple of navy blue puffy stickers (one onto the orange chipboard frame and one between the two arrows on my interactive element) to balance out the dark blues in my photo.
