Mini Holiday Pt. 3

Here are the final pages of our trip to Charleston, SC. There are actually more, but these were my favorites from what I had left to share. If you'd like to see them all as they appear in my album, feel free to pop over to my gallery.

I really love how this divided page came together, it was definitely one of those times when it all just clicked. Plus, I finally got to use one of the sweet wood veneer mushrooms I'd gotten from a Freckled Fawn kit.

On all my 12"x12" layouts, I varied the photo placement and I think working on the top third worked well for my sunset photo. One of the Basic Grey {Mon Ami} papers had a repeating ticket pattern which inspired my title for the page. I cut them out, used a hole punch on some, and built up my layers from there.

On this last divided page I had a little mishap with my journaling, but because I had already stitched my embellishments down, I had to just work around it. I covered up my mistake with more of the same patterned paper and moved on.

I did have fun with the yellow card at the bottom though. I kept all the stamps on the package, inked it with Versamark, and then heated clear embossing powder on top. I am so in love with the October Afternoon {Daily Flash} alphabet sets and plan on stocking up on some more colors.

Onward to the next project! :)


  1. Gorgeous pages, as always, Elise! Love the use of the tickets for the border on the layout!

  2. Wow - this is really amazing. Love the different details.

  3. Beautiful photos Elise, really love your layout and the pp you chose for the PL pages works perfectly with those pictures.

  4. I love love your scrapbook page, gorgeous.
    I really like how you used the same paper to your divided page on the first one.
    Love all of your photos

  5. Elise, I love the garden page and oh so love your sunset page and the waterfront card with cat and bread is too darling!

  6. Oh that yellow card is too cool... I seriously thought that was patterned paper. Looks like you had a fun trip! :)
