Comments Off on Pack Your Bags | Carta Bella

Hey there. The weather has turned the corner here in the UK, so I’m already planning our family holiday. What better way to get in the mood than scrap holiday photos? Pack Your Bags from Carta Bella has fabulous cheery colours and the most adorable imagery. Who can resist that combo?!

My two layouts using the same collection couldn’t be more different. I really fell in love with the cute images on the papers which I’ve used to great effect.

This bold layout features 2 tags which were hand cut from Away we Go paper. I fussy cut the large phrases from the project cards as I don’t do pocket scrapping. To draw the eye across the page, I stitched a swirly trail and added fussy cut planes and tiny clouds.

The second layout of a trip to New York – I had to use the cutest little snow globe as a feature.

The base is made up of strips of paper from the Border Strips and Hello World paper. I added a bit of stitching for a bit more detail.

I hand cut the baggage labels from the Border strips paper and threaded bakers twine through. More fussy cutting of the ephemera and pocket cards to  add a bit more interest and up the cute factor!

You can see from my layouts that this collection is truly awesome for bright, fun pages. There’s loads of great mileage in the papers for fussy cutting.

Grab your Pack your Bags collection before it it’s all gone!

Thanks for stopping by.
