Hello Lovelies! Candace with you today to share a double page 8.5×11 layout all about the magic of the beach. I love the beach and the only thing that is almost as good as going to the beach is scrapbooking photos of the beach! I love the light and ethereal feel of the water and sand in the photos and wanted the photos to act as the focus of the layout. To keep the layout photo-centric I knew that I needed a light and simple color palette.
I started the layout by using a 2″ and 3″ circle punch to punch out photos for the spread. I knew I wanted to keep the bulk of the embellishments and photos on the left side of the spread while placing my journaling and title on the right side.
I also punched a 3″ circle out of the one of the new journaling cards in the shop. I love the sentiment on this card! Perfect for this layout!
To add a little more contrast to the simple colors on the spread I added a few pieces of black chipboard and an enamel heart on top of the circle wood slices.
I love a simple font in my alphas. The cork letters in the shop are perfection, plus they matched the colors of the layout!
To finish off the right side of the spread, add just a touch more color, and to tie the left and right side together I added the “explore” acrylic sentiment.
I adore the final layout! Simple and beautiful, just like the beach! Make sure you stop by the shop to pick up all the goodies that I used and document those memories!
