France in a Sidekick

June 14, 2023

Karen here! I’m excited to be sharing with you a few Sidekick Essentials pages I made for a trip scrapbook. My parents and I had planned to spend about 3 weeks in France back in May 2020. Of course, that got delayed, but we finally did it in August/September 2022. I created two copies of each page, so I could give my mom and dad their own album. Each of these pages has a smidge of the Everyday Elements release from Annette. Fun!

First up is the cover. I kept this page pretty simple, but at it’s center is one of the flowers from the Playful Flowers set. So sweet. The page base is a Sidekick Essentials 4 with the “green” part cut from the Sidekick Pocket Page Fillers 1. The word “France” is cut with the Alphabet Tabs, and I used Planner Essentials 56 (tickets) to cut the month names, and the Ticket Stamps for the 2022.

One of our epic adventures was a trip to climb Pont du Gard. (Yes, I did it – it’s a HUGE beautiful bridge!) The page base here is a Sidekick Essentials 7. I used a Label Tab stamp at the top, and added some Lace Borders to this page. The “Epic” die is from Sidekick Essentials 8. The paper is from a combination of Books 2 and 5 Reminiscence.

And on the back of the page is more pictures from the Pont du Gard climb. Stunning view at the top.

Another page is from our day at Villandry. What an amazing experience to visit the homes of royalty from hundreds of years ago! Just beautiful. The page base here is a Sidekick Essentials 10. The “Love this View” is from a retired page.

More pictures on the back along with a couple flourishes from the Fancy Flourishes set. I added a stamp from Adventure Awaits. And finally, no page is complete without the amazing reinforcements from the Reinforcement Variety Packs!

Craftily yours, Karen
