Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd - All Around The World -
Hope you are enjoying your summer!;
I have been busy putting together some of this year and past years' memories into layouts for my kids' albums. Fortunately, Scrapbook Nerd is releasing new cut files (The wanderer, and Beach Bound) designed by The Cut Shoppe, and you can get them for free at their on-line store...
It is a known fact, that the Cameo and I get along very well together, so I have used The Wanderer cut file to create this layout about our family trip to Ecuador last spring ( I have 3000 more pictures from the trip)... For this layout, the All Around The World design was amplified to fit fully in a 12x12in paper. I made sure to cut the map inside the circle, and then created isolated the circle to obtain the pieces used here.

The map was glued to the mat; once secured, I pierced the edges around the map, and used different color embroidery thread to hand stitch the edges ( the colors of the thread match those of the ones found in the Outfitters collection by Pink Paislee, that is featured in this layout)...
|I added a small marker to mark the place where the picture was taken.|
The outer circle (title of this layout) was then glued to the layout using foam adhesive to create dimension on the piece).

The picture of my kids was them layered using papers from Pink Paislee's Outfitters collection, as well as pieces from their ephemera pack. I chose to add the journal lines at the opposite side of the picture to balance the layout. Here is the final layout.
I really loved using the cut file along with the paper collection to document a little moment of our trip to Ecuador. As always, let me know if you have any questions about the layout.
Don't forget to visit Scrapbook Nerd to get a copy of the new cut files being released (they are free)...
