Paradise Cove Cards

By Kelly Holbrook

September 23, 2017

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

By Lisa Andrews

September 22, 2017

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

By Diana Waite

September 21, 2017

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

By Jennifer McMurtrey

September 20, 2017

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

By Rebecca Keppel

September 18, 2017

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!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paradise Cove – Bible Journaling

By Kelly Holbrook

September 17, 2017

Happy Sunday! It’s Kelly here today sharing a Bible Journaling entry using the Paradise Cove Full Bundle. I have decided to start working my way through the book of Job, and the verses I have highlighted come from chapter 1. (vs. 20) “Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, (vs.21) And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”

I thought the cactus found in the American Crafts Memory Planner Stickers were perfect for this passage because even though cactus are prickly, they are beautiful to look at. I felt like this was a great illustration of Job’s ability to worship despite his suffering.

I used the coordinating Traveler’s Notebook as a devotional/prayer journal to accompany my studies in Job. I liked the idea of using the smaller, matching cactus in the notes that go along with the Job 1 journaling entry to show that they go together.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Paradise Cove – Traveler’s Notebook Part 2

By Jenni Calma

September 16, 2017

Hi again!  Jenni here to share the next couple pages of my Traveler’s Notebook that I shared a couple weeks ago.  I created this Journal using the new Scrapbook Circle custom line ‘Paradise Cove.

I used the same formula that I used in the previous pages, to create these.  I used a piece pf the patterned paper as the larger background for the journaling, tags, embellishments, and other details.  The opposite journal page had the photo and possibly more embellishments or the date.

I added watercolor to the alphas I planned to use for this spread to continue the feel and to tie in all the colors.  I also added more machine stitching, to carry over that detail throughout out the book.

The part I love most about these kits is that there are just enough patterns, embellishments, combinations to design so many unique pages or spreads, but there aren’t so many options to be overwhelming.

Sometimes, lots of choices can be a little daunting, but this smaller kit helps alleviate the stress and just inspires creativity!

Thanks for stopping by the Blog today.  I hope you enjoyed a couple more ideas for that Traveler’s Notebook, using the new kit from Scrapbook Circle.

Thanks again & have awesome week!

A day at the Lake with Paradise Cove

By Diana Waite

September 15, 2017

I have to be honest this is my very first time using a travel notebook and guess what?  I LOVE it!  Did you know that a travel notebook is included in the Paradise Cove Full Bundle?  For my creation today I used the Full Bundle which includes so many wonderful little treasures!

I decided for this particular travel notebook it would be my daughter’s adventures from College her Freshman edition.  She lives away and most of these pictures come off of social media-which makes the journaling portion hers.

My favorite embellishment on this layout has to be the cactus because these photos were taken when she came to visit us here in the desert.

This traveler’s notebook I plan on giving to her for Christmas along with the start of her Sophomore year.  Thanks for popping in today-happy creating!

Paradise Cove Process Video

By Rebecca Keppel

September 13, 2017

I am so excited about Scrapbook Circle’s Paradise Cove collection and the coordinating Traveler’s Notebook. But, to be honest, I did not do any traveling this summer! However, I was sill excited to document the ordinary every day moments of the months of June, July and August!

I love the colors and designs of the collection and the coordinating embellishments in the Full Bundle are so fun!

So I used them to document everything from eating summer fruits to watching my kids play video games.

I love using contact photos in my traveler’s spreads and I used a combination of typewritten and handwritten journaling.

If you would like to see each item of the Full Bundle up close AND a process video of how I put together this spread, then check out this video!

And, even if you don’t have any travel photos from this summer, check out Paradise Cove to document you ordinary, everyday, but still beautiful summer memories today!

Documenting Beach Days

By Lisa Andrews

September 12, 2017

Our Paradise Cove Kit is perfect for documenting our family’s beach days this year. To start off my album, I added a few of the items from the Paradise Cove kit to the cover of our traveler’s notebook. I used Glossy Accents Glue to adhere all of the elements since I figure that the cover of the album will get a lot of handling and I want everything to be really secure on the cover.

Here’s a look at a couple of my inside pages:

I just used the kit elements and had a lot of fun putting this together. The journaling tags and cut apart words are two of my favorite pages from the kit.

Have you picked up your Paradise Cove Kit yet? We have both a printed version + embellishments plus and printable only version. We’d love to see what you make with your kit, so be sure to share over on our Facebook Group!
