I thought I'd share a few close-up photos with you too. This left hand card would qualify as the title, I think - "Discover Paris." I enjoyed being able to use different kinds of cards from different collections as well as including a few of the layered stickers that I enjoy so much.
To tie some of the cards together, I used different patterns in the cards I chose as well as layering some washi tape to create some additional interest and cohesiveness.
The number of photos I was able to include on this layout makes me really happy. I also like the mix of big group shots and smaller groups of just two or three of us at a time.
I was undecided about using this card because it has rounded corners and the rest had squared corners, but I just decided not to sweat the small stuff. In order to make it look more purposeful, I layered an acrylic piece over it to make it stand out a bit. I really wanted to use this particular card as my background for this photo because it nicely tied in the pinks and aquas that I'd used on the rest of the layout.
And here's the right hand side of the layout alone.
Finally, here it is one more time in its entirety. I don't make many pocket pages anymore, but I'm really happy with the way this one turned out overall (besides the random adhesive square, that is). This type of page allowed me to create a layout that told our story of visiting Paris in a visually interesting way with plenty of room for both decorative elements and pictures. Hmm, maybe I'll do a few more of these kinds of pages as I scrapbook my other student trips from over the years.
