Hybrid Life Crafted Layout with Marsha
Hey friends! Marsha here today sharing a hybrid layout in my Life Crafted Album. I used the Life Crafted Journeys Kit, This Is Life Daytripping Stamp, and lots of digital files from the shop.
Here's a look at the layout:
To begin the spread, I enlarged a map patterned paper from the Journeys Digital TN Pattern Papers to 5"x8.25" so that it would fit as a full page in the album. I created another canvas (sized to 4.25"x8.25") and added several of the arrow stamps from the Daytripping Digital Stamp Set. I was careful to leave space in the center for the geotag cut file that I planned to add later. I printed the papers, trimmed them to size, and adhered them so that the arrow paper was on top. Next, using Silhouette Studio, I sized a geotag from the Journeys Titles Cut File to fit in the area I had left on the page and cut it out using a blue patterned paper from the kit. I added some hand-stitching to the cut file for added texture and interest. I always love the results when I take the time to add stitching to a layout!
I stamped the word "travel" and the trees icon stamp from the Daytripping Stamp to the map patterned paper and used a circle die to cut it out. I added it to the center of the geotag to serve as the title. To complete this page, I stamped some sentiments from the Daytripping Stamp and also added a camera icon stamp to the bottom of the page.
For the right side of the layout, I opened a digital paper from the Journeys TN Basics Digital Papers and typed my journaling onto the page. I printed it out on white cardstock, added my photos, and used an ephemera piece and chipboard stickers from the kit to embellish it. I also did a bit more stamping using the Daytripping Stamp and the LC Kit Stamp. To complete the title, I used the aqua puffy alphabet stickers from the kit. I also added a "19" to the top of the spread, because my husband and I were celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary on this trip!
Be sure to check out all of the amazing digital files that are available in the Citrus Twist Kits shop! I will see you again soon!
