Vacation Postcard Layout

I made this layout for the beginning of my gulf coast vacation scrapbook.  The B&T papers are from CTMH's Passages and Vintage Travel paper packs.  I included small photos from highlights of our trip and described the photos by location in a postcard.  I like the vintage look.
I folded the map papers into thirds to look more like a real map and distressed the folds with ink.  I added photo corners to each picture to give it an older look.  Both the map papers and cocoa mat on each page were edge distressed with water.
 Lots of CTMH stamp sets (current and retired) were used.  Here's the list:
Posterboard Alphabet (title--stamped on postage stamped paper from Vintage Travel)
Vintage Postcard (all postcards, vacation definition, Express Post. postmark, East River postmark)
Neighborhood (car)
Postmarked (large postmark under calendar)
Live Inspired ("Explore," "Journey," and "Dream")
Take a Picture (camera & "A Picture if Worth a Thousand Words"
Relax ("Relax" and "Life's a journey, not a destination")
Hang Ten ("Beach")
Legendary Moments ("Carpe Diem" and fleur de lis)
Moments in Time (calendar)


  1. fun fun fun! looks like a great trip and makes me want to get my scrapbook stuff out and work on one of our adventurez!

  2. I absolutely love this LO! I always bring home post cards just in case my pics aren't so hot. Then I am always puzzled as how to present them on a page. I think I still have the postage SSs somewhere!

  3. I really like this LO! Wish I had thought of it 1st! Thank you for the inspiration!
