Tour – Salzburg

I’ve been having so much fun creating these past two months! Today’s layout focuses on a photo my husband took in Salzburg, Austria. Although it wasn’t one of the best weather days on our trip, the colours and perspective in this photo instantly take me back to that moment every time I look at it. Most of you would know Salzburg from the musical “The Sound of Music”. This magical city is full of breathtaking discoveries around every corner.

Before I describe the details of creating this layout, I must give a shout-out to Lisa Furtney, owner of ScrapFest. Lisa owns and operates this event-based business and hosts large and small face-to-face and virtual events throughout the year with her wonderful team. I am a member of ScrapFest Connect – a virtual membership group of fellow crafters on Facebook. ScrapFest Connect offers members several virtual events a year, plus they run a monthly challenge open to all members. I was honoured to be the March Challenge Winner this year, and I used products from my prize package to create this layout. I have plenty of leftover products from my prize package, so you can expect more designs using them. Thank you Lisa and Team for this beautiful prize package!

My prize pack included the 49 and Market 12′ x 12′ Paper Collection Pack of Vintage Artistry Everywhere and several coordinating embellishments, including the Chipboard Set, Laser Cut Elements, Epoxy Coat Sticker Embellishments and Tag Set. Absolutely perfect for all the pictures we took on our recent travels overseas! I chose the back side of the Great Big World patterned paper for the background of this layout. Each patterned paper comes with a strip at the bottom that provides details on the brand and name of the paper. In this case, the back side of this strip had a coordinating row of tickets. I decided to keep this element in my layout and therefore trimmed off the top part of the patterned paper to fit the 12″ x 12″ layout.

I used two cut files to create this layout. The first cut file comes from Peartree Cutfiles and is entitled Travel Words. I find it very helpful to use the software in Silhouette Studio to size all my files and pictures before cutting or printing. For this layout, the cut file was reduced considerably to fit the space. I backed each word with a coordinating piece of cardstock to complete the title.

The second cut file comes from Bea Valint at My Shiny Studio and is appropriately titled World Map. Bea’s file is a free download from her blog. To replicate a perfect alignment of the cut file on my page, I cut the outline of the cut file from a 12″ x 12″ piece of vellum. The vellum was then positioned over the patterned paper and used as a template to secure the cut file in place.

To complete the design, I added some epoxy coat sticker embellishments on either side of the photo, and the geotag with the “Right Here” bauble to the world map to indicate Austria. Two rubons were added to the centre of the layout for added depth and texture. The large blue geotag, “On the Bucket List” and “A Perfect Day” banners were utilized from the Chipboard Set. The final embellishment is the set of binoculars that hang off the end of the word Adventure. These were found in the Laser Cut Elements package. The location of the photo was added using Thickers “Happy Life” foam stickers. And last, but not least, I included the date by writing it on the inside of one of the date stamps on the patterned paper. It can be found to the left of the photo.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope I’ve inspired you to scrapbook a few of your own travel pictures. Until next time, stay safe, stay well, and Happy Scrapping!
