Available in themes that showcase events like Graduation, Baby, Birthday, Travel, Wedding and more. And, with just a few tiny modifications, you can turn any page that was designed to be used for a specified theme into something completely different.

Now, imagine if you had some photos that weren’t travel themed, but wanted to use these fab pages. NO problem. Simply cover up some of the design elements on the page with your own embellishments, paper or photos and presto – they’re totally customized. Easy peezy!

Designer Melissa Ullmann put a totally fun twist on these travel pages, turning them into college scrapbook page layouts. She trimmed a 2-week section from a calendar page from the Year to Remember Paper Pack and added it to the bottom of the airplane page. She also covered up the globe design on the left page with a circle shape cut using the Custom Cutting System with Circle Patterns. It’s a great way to make a page layout title that packs a punch and fits your theme perfectly!

To create these pages, you’ll need:

Step 1: Cover the airplane on the right hand page with a piece of the calendar designed paper to measure 12” x 4-1/2”.

Step 2: Cut a piece to measure 12” x 1” from the arrow patterned paper and adhere to the bottom of the calendar paper.

Step 3: Cut a piece from the star patterned paper to measure 12” x ½”. Adhere over the top part of the calendar patterned paper.

Step 4: Cut three photo mats to measure 4” x 6” from the navy cardstock. Adhere to spread.

Step 5: Cut one photo mat to measure 6-1/2” x 4-1/2” from the navy cardstock. Adhere to spread.

Step 6: Cut one photo mat from the star patterned paper to measure 4” x 4”.

Step 7: Adhere photos to the photo mats. (3) measuring 3-3/4” x 5-3/4”, (1) 4” x 6”, (1) 3-3/4” x 3-3/4”.

Step 8: Using the outside of the medium CCS-circle and the green blade, cut a circle from the navy cardstock. Adhere to the top of the circle on the left side page of the spread.

Step 9: Using the outside of the medium CCS-circle and the red blade, cut a circle from the orange star patterned paper. Adhere to the top of the navy cardstock circle.
