Today I have several layouts to share - all of these were created for our 10th Anniversary Cruise Albums and were inspired by challenges in the Stashbusters Anonymous workshop.
This first one uses scraps of paper to create a chevron pattern as part of the background of the layout. I also added some scattered sequins on this layout, then put a drop of glitter glue on top of each.
One of the elements that I'm continuing to add to the pages for our cruise albums is a small cluster of words. This is the one design element that I've used throughout these albums - a little something to tie all the miscellaneous layouts together.
Another challenge in the Stashbusters workshop encouraged us to use some of our metal embellishments. I used a large black metal frame around my title on this next layout.
I also added a metal brad in the word embellishment cluster.
Here's another layout using metal brads and eyelets as a border above and below one of the photos.
This last layout today is one of my very favorites. I decided to try the sunburst challenge again, this time using washi tape!
I also used some small metal embellishments near the title and journaling blocks.
I'm putting our cruise albums together with the layouts sorted by theme or category. These layouts will all go in the section I've titled "At Sea" and (as you can see) showcase photos taken of the water and sky and horizon while we were at sea.
How do you organize the layouts in your vacation theme albums?
