Storyline- My Hawaiian Album Made Easy!
Hands up if you love scrapbooking! Hands up if you love scrapbooking but are like me and are time poor! Well there is now a solution! It’s called Storyline , and it’s available at your local Michaels stores now!
Let me share with you how easy it is to create an album- a vacation album in under 4 hours. You see the storyline collection which includes 12 x 12 and 8 x1 1 albums and the Sticker packs and Deck of Days cards are all self adhesive. Yes there is no adhesive, no cutting necessary , just print your photos and go…. Print your photos and adhere them with the self adhesive corners…..see how easy it is!
The 8.5×11 Leaves album was the perfect choice for my recent vacation to Hawaii! Combined with the Adventure and Life Happens Deck of Days and the Botanical and Peony journaling stickers it was just so easy to get my memories recorded! Now the only thing I did add to a few of my pages was some splashes of Color Shine, some Metallic texture paste and stencils and Art screens and ink. I did this first to a few random pages and while they were drying I set out to print my photos!
My opening page starts with a panoramic photo of the beach and a couple of stickers from the Peony Sticker kit.
The On the Go page I moved to the second page and added some Mint Texture paste with the Wish stencil from the Gallery Wall collection. I printed off my photo to 8×11 and slipped it into the pocket.
I love the shine that is created with the Metallic Texture paste.
Pops of yellow and Navy from the Life Happens Deck of Days adds some sunshine to any page.
I laid down my photo and then added the different cards around around my photo to form my embellishments and hand wrote my journalling on the sticker.
I used the Dream Art screen and yellow art screen ink to create a soft background for my photos. Do you notice the typed journalling at the bottom of the page. I used my We Are Memory Keepers Typecast typewriter to add the Who, What and Where to each page. It was just so easy.
Turning the page celebrates our first day on the beach.
I snuck in a super quick palm tree that I cut with my silhouette and then layered over my journalling from Peony Journalling cards kit. I mixed in some green and grey stickers to add a pop of color as well.
This page took me literally five minutes to complete. I adhered my photo with one of the self adhesive photo corners and then stuck down the cards and journalling box.
Another 8×11 photo slipped into the pocket on the left creates a big impact.
The best part about this new Storyline collection is the way we can add so many photos and a couple of cards and Boom your page is done!
More mint texture paste and the wish stencil to create a background for my photos.
I stuck the heart die cut under the photo for a fun effect and added the date with the stickers from the Botanical stickers pack.
A grid design is a perfect way to quickly create a page. I trimmed a piece of pattern paper from my stash to 3×4 and then popped that Welcome to the Weekend card onto the paper with pop dots for a bit of definition.
I wrote out my journaling on the blue journaling sticker and slipped it under my photo but I left the self adhesive backing in place so I am able to move it in and out.
I adhered that gold heart with pop dots to my large photo on the left.
On the right page I created a border across the middle of my page using the stickers from the Botanical kit.
This might be my favorite spread. The yellows and blues are just so refreshing!
For this page I used some butter Color Shine and a dot stencil to create a background on my page and then I added my photos again in a grid design and added my circular journaling spot to the grid as well.
For added texture I popped the heart die cut up with pop dots and added the beautiful sticker over the top of the photo.
Another big and bold photo to tell the story of my boys surfing lesson!
I loved how the soft mint colors in the Life Happens Deck of Days matched my photos perfectly. I finished with some splashes of Color Shine.
Our final night in Hawaii was celebrated at the beach staying till sunset!
The gold die cut stickers were the perfect choice to create a richness to this page.
…and finally I added some more hidden journaling by trimming the journal sticker to size and kept the adhesive backing on it so I am able to move it in and out.
Can you see how excited I am to be able to complete my album in just one sitting. It really is like a scrapbooking revolution, for anyone who is busy, and face it who isn’t! I encourage you to try out this new collection, it really will change your life!
