Carta Bella Our Travel Adventure - Summer Getaway

Hello, Karen C back again today with one final bonus layout using the Our Travel Adventure collection from Carta Bella. With people starting to be able to enjoy overseas travel from the UK again, I decided to use a photo on my layout of my parents taken a couple of years ago as they were getting ready to jet off to a sunnier clime.

After already creating two layouts from my design team kit I started by trimming roughly a quarter of an inch off of all four sides of the only remaining full sheet of paper I had - the Luggage Tags paper, and matted the B side of this onto a sheet of navy blue cardstock. I then layered strips of the Wanderlust and Travel Strips paper and very narrow strips of the navy blue cardstock on top. 

A 4x6 photo was matted onto a piece of the Wanderlust paper (B side), then onto a scrap of the B side of the Journaling Cards cut apart paper and finally onto a piece of the navy blue cardstock. The matted photo was then placed on the left of the layout with 3D foam underneath for added dimension. I added a piece of knotted ribbon below the photo and a journaling strip typed on the computer.

I matted three of the journaling cards onto white cardstock and a fourth card with an image of a passport was made into a card which when open reveals hidden journaling. I added a ribbon tab to the side of that card to make it easier to open. The four cards were then cascaded down the side of the layout with 3D foam underneath.

The title words were die cut from yellow and navy blue cardstock and nestled together.

Two word strips were cut from the Travel Strips paper and placed below the title.

The layout was completed with the addition of a wood veneer plane, from my stash, to the tail of the letter Y.

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope I've given you some ideas as to how you could use to Our Travel Adventure collection and this any many other travel themed supplies can be found in the shop. Just select the 'Shop by Theme' option on the home page.

Take Care,
