Planner Essentials Scrapbooking

My Virtual Travel to Illinois

March 5, 2021

Karen here. I’m still doing some virtual travel through my “Places I’ve Been” planner/journal. It’s been a kick to look back through old pictures and to create pages. Today’s creation is all about a trip to Chicago back in 2007. One of the highlights of the trip was a Cubs game at historic Wrigley Field, so I chose a color palette of blue and red.

I’ve been creating two-page layouts (front and back) for each place I document. The paper I used in this lay-out is from Reminiscence, The Book. Gorgeous papers in blue and red!

The page base I used in the lay-out is from Planner Essentials 28. I love the beautiful deckled edge on this particular base. The letters are from the Butterfly Pocket Insert dies.

On the backside, there was some words on the paper that I didn’t really want in my page, so I added the polkadot paper that I die cut with the Fitted Circles dies and then ran back through with the page base.

And I LoVe playing with reinforcements. I always add 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the paper before die cutting. The beige banners are cut from a die in the Reinforcement Variety Pack 1, and the stars are part of Planner Essentials 14.

Thank you for stopping by today. I have linked up the supplies below.

Craftily yours, Karen
