I started with a light kraft cardstock base and added a wash of white acrylic paint to the background. In Cricut Design Space I enlarged the “Go” Geotag, included in the Going Geo Cut File set, to 10.5″ and cut the image on a pattern paper from the Amy Tangerine-On A Whim Collection. The white acrylic paint helps the cut file image pop off the background and to add a little more definition to the cut file I added hand stitching using hot pink embroidery floss.
After the hand stitching was complete I moved on the photo. I added a couple layers of white tissue paper and fun foam to the photo to help elevate it from the background. I tucked multiple die cuts, clear stickers, and stickers from the On A Whim sticker book around the photo for extra pops of color. I love all of the bright colors in this collection!
The title of my page is #Hustle from the On A Whim chipboard sticker sheet. After I received this sticker sheet I wasn’t sure how I would use the word ‘Hustle’. When I think of this word I think of sports related activities but I don’t have those type of photos to scrapbook. Then I remembered that I had this photo of the airport from a recent trip we went on. We were going to Vegas and had a terrible experience with the airline! Our flight was cancelled as we were walking out the door to head to the airport and we couldn’t find another flight out from the original airport because, like us, everyone on the cancelled flight was looking for another flight out. We ended up finding seats at a different airport but had to HUSTLE to make it there on time. We arrived at the gate as the plane was boarding, but we made it! This photo was actually taken after we had returned home because I didn’t have one second to snap a photo as we were running into the airport to try to make our outgoing flight! This memory is actually one that stands out the most in my head from this vacation so it is fitting that it will be the opening page to our Vegas scrapbook.
I added the journaling using my We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter, cut the journaling into strips, and added it directly under my photo. I finished the layout by adding splatters of Hot Pink Heidi Swapp Color Shine.
I’ve also put together a process video showing how this layout came together!
