Today was awesome.

Hello and welcome to the Scrapbook Circle blog!  I have to tell you I loved working with the Paradise Cove bundle-packed full of goodies!

Today I wanted to share a short process video of how this layout came together.



Paradise Cove: Summer Fun Layout

Hi everyone! It’s Kelly here today sharing one final project created with the Paradise Cove Exclusive Bundle…

After starting out with a Bible Journaling and devotional entry, and then moving on to a card set…I decided I wanted to try a little bit of everything with this versatile kit, and am finishing up with an 8.5×11 layout.

I started with white cardstock and used several of the patterned papers in different shapes for a background. The green palm tree paper is 5×5 to mat my 3.5×3.5 Instagram photo.

I enjoyed layering quite a few tags and stickers from the kit, and even popped up the littlest flamingo with some foam tape to add dimension. I finished up with some washi tape at the bottom of the page to ground some journaling.

Be sure to stop by the Scrapbook Circle shop to download/purchase your kit! Thanks for stopping by today!

California Dreams with Paradise Cove

Hey everyone!

It’s Jen today with another layout using the super-awesome Paradise Cove printable bundle from Scrapbook Circle. I love that I have been able to print and reprint the papers and embellishments to complete one project after another.

This project is an 8 1/2 by 11 layout that uses three of the patterned papers. To get the striped effect on the white card stock, I cut each of the patterned papers into one-inch strips and then machine stitched to the card stock. I didn’t worry about the strips being perfectly aligned or straight – I simply set them on the card stock and began sewing.

The photo I printed is 5 x 5 and I wanted it to be larger so it was prominent on the page. I used several of the die cut embellishments available with Paradise Cove bundle along with two of the printable sentiments. I also used the DIY roller stamp to record the date on a tag, which I tucked behind the top of the photo.

The title was created using Pinkfresh Studio puffy sticker alphas from a previous Scrapbook Circle kit. I position it at the top and bottom of the photo.

To finish the project, I added one tiny bit of journaling, doodles around the border, and some black enamel dots from my stash.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to create! Be sure to visit the Scrapbook Circle shop to pick up your bundle today!


Using Instagram Stories for Journaling in Traveler’s Notebooks

I mentioned in my first Paradise Cove blog post, that I printed my Instagram Stories photos and used them in my Traveler’s Notebooks. And when I do that, I tend not to need to add additional journaling.

When I’ve added text to my Insta Stories and print them, they come ready made with their own little bits of journaling!

Add some Paradise Cove printables, a few embellishments from the Bundle and call it done!

Since Insta Stories photos are not always great quality, printing them out on a contact sheet and printing them very small and then using them in Traveler’s Notebooks works out great! Do you ever print your Insta Stories?

Thanks for stopping by!

Paradise Cove Layout & Process Video!!

Hey there!  This is Jenni here to share one final project for September using the ‘Paradise Cove’ Exclusive Bundle.  I documented my process with a video you can see HERE!

After using the kit for a Summer edition Traveler’s Notebook, I decided to use the remaining kit for a traditional scrapbook layout.  I decided to use a grid with the square cut apart pieces in the kit that were either just graphics, or phrases.

After laying out a design using a couple square Instagram pics I printed out, I added lots of the embellishments included int he kit to add interest and texture.

I used one of the cut apart quotes from Helen Keller which I though was perfect for pictures of these crazy kiddos!

I added some of the Washi Tape, Puffy Stickers, Corner Embellishments and Ephemera Stickers for interest to each grid piece.

Finishing with a few paint splatters in coordinating colors, this layout was done!

Paradise Cove Cards

Hello everyone! It’s Kelly here today sharing a couple of cards made with the Paradise Cove Full Bundle.

I cut one of the pattern sheets in half and used each half as a card base.

I topped each card with some cut outs and a few of the adorable embellishments found in the bundle.

There you have it! A couple of quick and easy birthday cards. I love finding creative ways to use this super cute kit!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Bike @ the Beach

Our Paradise Cove line isn’t just for Traveler’s Notebook spreads (although we do love using in our TN!) Today I’d like to share a layout that I created with the Paradise Cove Printable Bundle. One of my favorite things about printable pages is that they can be printed over and over and you never run out of the elements.

The black and white alpha page from the kit is one of my favorite pages. It looks great plain, but it is also fun to dress it up a bit. On this page, I used watercolors to add color to the alphas.

If you’d like to see how I colored this alpha plus other printable alpha tips, be sure to check out my printable alphas video on our Scrapbook Circle YouTube Channel.

Boyce Thompson-another page in the Adventure book

Hello!  Diana here-I wanted to share with you another page in the adventure book of my daughter-these are pages created from her adventures in College from pictures that I downloaded from her social media-there is ALWAYS a way to scrap pictures! 😉

I am honestly loving how quickly these layouts come together in the Traveler’s notebook-I don’t know why I held off for so long!

In this spread I really like how the gold of the arrows, photo corners, and cactus washi tape draws your eye across the page.  And as you notice below the picture of the girls walking away I left some space for my daughter to journal about her adventure.

I honestly LOVE these large cactus-perfect for this spread as this Arboretum is a place with many different kinds of cactus and other desert plants.

Thanks for popping in, the Paradise Cove kit is AWESOME!

Let’s Go with Paradise Cove Exclusive Cut Files

Hello Scrapbook Circle friends!

It’s Jen today with a project made using the Paradise Cove printable bundle and exclusive Sun and Let’s Go digital cut files. My family and I spent a week in California over the summer and this kit is perfect for recording those vacation memories.

To begin, I cut 12 of the Sun digital files using white card stock and machine stitched them to a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 paper (white card stock). I added a piece of the MME washi, an AC die cut, and a printed sentiment from the Paradise Cove collection.

Next, I used the pink patterned paper with palm leaves to back my photo, which I chose because of the pink tones in the background of the photo. I adhered the picture to the white card stock and began embellishing with the AC die cuts included in the full bundle.

To the left of the photo I added more of the die cuts and one of the printable tags.

Next, I used the striped patterned paper and cut the Let’s Go sentiment, which I used as the title on the layout. Last, I placed a couple of the puffy circle stickers from MME near the photo.

I love that I can print and reprint the papers and embellishments from this collection. The finished layout has a fun vibe and really captures the mood of that day.

Thank you so much for visiting today! I hope you are inspired to create with this wonderful collection – be it a travelers notebook, planner, scrapbook layout, or card – with its versatile papers and embellishments.

Distress Oxide Inked Backgrounds

Sometimes it’s nice to add some clouds of color to the traveler’s notebook pages before you add your photos and embellishments.

I like to use Distress Oxide Inks and an Ink Blender to add some color and blend it together on my backgrounds.

Once the ink is dry, I add my photos, journaling, washi tape and other embellishments.

I like the soft hints of color it provides for the background.

Do you use ink in your traveler’s notebook spreads? We would love to see in the Scrapbook Circle of Friends Facebook Group!
