Pinterest Inspired Scrapbook Travel Layouts – Cool Serenity Collection

What a month – CM introduced not one but two exceptional vacation collections! They’re very different but don’t be afraid to mix and match. I found that the Cool Serenity papers provide a nice pop of color to the Uncharted Collection. The embellishments and stickers in both travel collections are really awesome, and it’s going to be easy to over-use them! I like this piece of advice from Coco Chanel, “before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.”  I tried to follow that rule when making the pages below! This is the second part of my assignment to create layouts based on inspiration from Pinterest. These pages were made with the Cool Serenity Collection. Make sure to follow CM on Pinterest for more layout ideas and inspiration.

Yellow Cardstock
12-inch Straight Trimmer

Step 1: Using the largest circle pattern, cut a circle from yellow cardstock using the red blade on the outside edge. Using the border maker with the grass cartridge, hand punch around the outside edge of the yellow circle to make a sun. Hold the border maker with cartridge upside-down to line up your punches. You will not use the paper guide piece of the border maker.

Step 2: Using the border maker with grass cartridge, punch two grass borders from green paper and trim to 1.5”.

Step 3: Using the shape maker, punch 7 half circles from a variety of paper.

Step 4: Crop one photo to 4” x 4” and another photo to 3” x 3.5”.

Step 5: Assemble pages as shown. Use foam squares to adhere some of the embellishments.
