16 Page Daytrip Scrapbook with Seaside - Part 4

I'm back today with part 4 of my daytrip album.  Before I get on with the pictures and info, I want to make sure that you know that some of these items get discontinued  in just a few days. The Seaside Workshop on the Go will be leaving, and the Paper Fundamentals are changing from the current geometric patterns to a more doodle-like look.  Be sure to order ASAP if you want either of these items!

Here is today's first layout:

Seriously, is there anything cuter than penguins? I found a fun way to add more pattern to this layout using just cardstock. I cut a full size overlay using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge, and turned it upside down from the way it's shown in the handbook so it looks like waves. I also added some ink distressing in Desert Sand, to tone down the Lagoon a bit and tie it in with the papers from the kit some more.

I made the fun title with the Keyboard Alphabet stamps and patterned paper letters cut using the Artiste Cricut cartridge.

The paper strips make a nice  base for the photos to "sit" on. I cut the border embellishments from the same pattern paper as the title letters, using the Artistry Cricut cartridge.  I added a few sequins for interest.

Here's a great way to use large photos and keep your layout balanced. This sketch from Scrapbook Generation uses a large panel and connected strips across the bottom to add weight to the single picture and really place the focus there. It nicely balances the simple grouping of photos on the opposite corner of the layout.

I used the Paper Fundamentals for a subtle pattern on the large panel - it pairs nicely with the multi-color pattern on the strips. The title uses only a portion of a stamp image from the kit, as well as the Keyboard Alphabet again. A grouping of sequins again adds some interest.

More stickers from the Complements, plus a few embellishments, make a fun little scene below the focal point photo.
