I'm totally in love with the Take a Hike collection. In Colorado we play outside a lot and this collection really speaks to me. The colors are perfect for Fall in Colorado when the Aspen leaves change colors.
The deep grain wood patterned paper is one of my very favorite in this collection and of course the retro color scheme is such a great palette to work with and makes this picture of my son really stand out.
I added some bright orange floss stitched across the top of the footprint paper. I also love how you can easily mix the Expressions Cardstock stickers between collections. This alphabet is actually from the Summer Fresh collection.
I also mixed some of the stickers from the Year.O.Graphy collection to add more layers to the page, pop dots are a great way to make them stand out.
It's also fun to use the 4 x 6 Journal Elements to make a little mini album. This one was very easy to put together. I just punched holes in the top left corner, added a binder ring and some ribbon and twine. Voila, instant album ready to add pictures to and because the journal elements are already "decorated," this project only requires minimal embellishment.
This was such a great 4 x 6 journal element, because I was able to use the cardstock sticker sentiments and tiny type to fill in the blanks for the message. This is my son and I enjoying the apsen grove we stopped at for lunch.
Please come see my blog My Little Sketch Blook for the rest of the details on this mini album.
