Fall in Lake Placid by Jen Carlson
I’ve been saving these photos from our trip last October to Lake Placid for a while now! We went at the perfect time to capture the leaves in full color. I knew I wanted to showcase the photos by using a minimalist approach. I love love love the stamp set from the This is Us Traveler’s Notebook Kit! The “family” stamp banner was the perfect touch in the corner of the landscape photo.
I usually stamp on white cardstock, but the colors from this kit were so great that I wanted to play with some patterns. The orange polka dot card from the This is Us kit fit the bill.
Again I pulled from the Traveler’s Notebook kit with the green leaf card. I love that this kit can always be adapted to pocket pages. Stamp, staple, and label trimmed from the Main Kit were all the embellishment that the green card needed. I typed out my journaling on a 2x3 template in Photoshop and stapled it to the stripe card from the Traveler’s Notebook kit.
I cut out a leaf outline stamped on another This is Us kit card for a pop of color in the corner. Because the stamp comes with both the outline and a solid, you can actually make it whatever color you want! This page came together quickly and simply with the great designs captured in this months’ collections.
