Nathalie here with you today. I hope you all are doing well!
Here in Canada we are enjoying our Summer season, and that means travelling. This year we headed back to my native Ecuador for a month long vacation, and brought back over 5000 pictures to live by until our next trip. I was lucky to come back to find the gorgeous Malibu Traveler’s Notebook kit at my door step! Right away, the colors of the papers in the kit, and all the add ons were an open canvas to start documenting some of our vacation adventures.
This month’s TN kit is loaded with many so many goodies that can easily also be reworked into a scrapbook layout. Here is small video showcasing how the layout came together:
As you can see, the kits are versatile!. In this case I used the Malibu TN kit to create this colorful, and vibrant page about our vacation resort. It all started with the cut file (which i had previously designed), which you can easily download below -just click on the picture-.
All the letter spaces were backed with the different 6×6 papers included in the Malibu TN kit, except the letter “o” which was backed with the subject’s picture. After all the letters were secured, then i used some foam tape to add a bit of dimension to the page.
To add more color to the layout, I used some Prima’s The tropicals watercolor palette to create a mixed media background. The colors used match those of the papers in the Malibu kit.
To bring the eye to the picture of the layout, a few clusters were created around the “o”. The clear stickers from the Pink Paislee’s Summer Lights can easily be backed with white cardstock, so that they stand out on the colorful papers.
To complete the visual triangle on this page, i used a combination of all the Malibu kit’s embellishments. The exclusive printables (the escape sign) along with the fussy cut heart, die cut pieces and the holographic star bring the page together. Here is a look at the completed layout:
I am loving the final look of this page (even after a 6 week scrapbook free vacation)! All the colors in the background complement those of the Malibu TN kit, and bring the picture to life. Not to mention that those Neon pens included in the kit are so smooth, and they even work on top of mixed media!!! If you haven’t checked the kit yet, then visit the Clique Kits Store to see all that is included; there are still a few TN subscriptions available!!
Remember I am always a comment away if you have questions about how this page came together. In addition, I would love to see what you create with the cut file, so don’t forget to tag me if you use it in one of your projects.
Til next time!
