Vacation Memories – Crate Paper

Today I am sharing a layout featuring Vacation Memories with the Wild Heart Collection! I must admit up front that I have never been anywhere tropical but that doesn’t stop me from loving the tropical vibe of Wild Heart! For this layout my journaling and memory is focused on what paradise means to me! I started out with the striped background and cut papers in strips to look like trees! I stitched the strips onto the paper with messy stitches and then added a cut file from white card stock on top.

Last year we spent 10 days on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The Island to me is paradise. The old growth rainforest was breathtaking and boasted Lucious huge green leaves!! I knew the minute I saw Wild Heart is would be perfect for those memories. I typed up my journaling and folded it up, I tucked it on top of of one of the ephemera cards and attached it to the layout with a leaf epoxy clip!

The chipboard paradise letters are my favourite!! I love that they are pink with a spotty animal print! I stitched them onto my layout for more subtle texture. I snipped the #happy from the cut apart card sheet into a little banner.

I knew I wanted to find a great spot for the pretty lush leaves! The leaves come in many forms in the collection, so I had a hard time picking between the paper ephemera ones, vellum and leaves on the sticker sheet. I ended up choosing the variegated green paper leaf since I had used so many of the green papers and I had more greens in my photos! The vellum leaf was the perfect companion! For one last detail I topped off the photo area with the gold foil butterfly print on the green card. It is just so pretty and draws the eye to the photo since I have a very busy background!

Wild Heart is a great collection for vacation memories, you can join me and scrap about your idea of paradise!
