If you have followed my story theme layouts with Ali Edwards' theme kits, you know that I usually use the monthly prompts to document my story as opposed to documenting our family story which I do with my Project Life spreads.
Switching gears a bit this month, I decided to use the June 'Go' Story Kit to document our anniversary trip to Greece. As usual, I am a bit behind keeping up with the monthly prompts but I love creating these layouts.
Instead of the black 6 x 8 inch album, I recently found a navy and white strip album in the same size from Michaels. I can't seem to find a link, but it definitely reminds me of all the blue and white colors of Greece that was so evident while on our trip.
I love these manila tags that were included in the 'Go' story kit, and knew immediately that I wanted to use them for documenting this trip.
This layout is inspired by Ali's example from the class. I cut white textured cardstock into 6 x 8 inches for the base pages. I attached the tags with Scotch mini tabs in order to make them stand out a bit.
In Photoshop, I cropped six images approximately 3.5 x 1.7 inches and used one of the original tags to cut each photo into the same shape.
Finally, I added a little bit of journaling directly on the images. I love how simple and clean this layout is.
And here's a look at the layout in my album.
I'm slowly, but surely, working on documenting this trip, which I plan to share more of as I complete it.
Products used in this layout: Go Story Theme Kit, Becky Higgins Design 1 page protectors, White textured card stock, and the "XO" washi tape is from my stash (can't quite remember where I picked this up).
