To remember this annual family tradition, I took two photos the last time we were there and whipped up a super-easy scrapbook page using them. In addition, all of my embellishments on the page are ones that I had leftover from other projects, so it was a great way to use up some of my scrap stash!
Ice Cream Cones Scrapbooking Page Layout Idea
The background is a sheet of texture cardstock in a solid light turquoise color. I used three strips of paper to make my own bottom boarder and simply cut them out with a wavy edge, layered them together and put them onto the page. I used a coral colored printed piece of scrapbook paper, a dark turquoise textured piece of paper and a solid bright red piece of paper to make the border. Those colors worked well with my photos. Layered on top of the boarder are three chipboard ice cream cone embellishments.
I matted both of the photos (after I cropped them) onto solid bright red cardstock, trimmed that mat leaving an 1/8" edge and matted it again ton the coral piece of printed paper that I had used in the border. This way my photo mat coordinates with the boarder. I left a 3/16" edge around the outer mat.
The word SMILE was made with a glitter adhesive word kit and I used dark turquoise glitter for that. Underneath each photo I used vellum word stickers, SAY CHEESE and TOGETHER FOREVER. To the left of the photo block is a file folder tab that has the date on it and to the right is a thing-a-ma-jig with coral flower epoxy sticker. Both of the embellishments were inked around the edges with turquise colored ink.
I really like the color scheme that I used which pulled out the colors from the photographs. The layout was really simple to put together, allowed me to use up bits & pieces that I had leftover from other projects and I think it's funky looking which I like.
Note: You can double click on the photo to have it automatically open up in a new window and in an enlarged size, so that you can see the details up close!
