Double Trouble by Krista Wells
I loved the graphic design of this page in the new Flower Shop Travelers Notebook kit this month and really wanted to use it in my latest Palm Springs Travelers Notebook. It was the design inspiration for this layout - that and the new Ice Cream stamp set! I love grabbing ice cream while on vacation and the heat in the desert had me running to Kreem multiple times to to cool down!
I started out with two travelers notebook pages from the Flower Shop kit - ‘HERE’ & a light blue polka dot page as my base. From there, I stamped ‘double trouble’ using the Highline alpha stamp set in both navy and teal, creating a shadow effect. I like that the letters in ‘here’ are offset from one another and the ‘double trouble’ title is flowing vertically but sitting horizontally. I thought it might be too busy but I actually like how it all balances on the page.
On the opposite page I added a striped journaling card from the Hold On main kit on the polka dot paper first. Then I printed two copies of the ‘hi’ card from the same kit, Hold On, and layered them over the striped card. I added my double scoops pics to the cards.
I wanted to document each ice cream flavor so I created two little tabs, using the circles from the May label stickers. I folded each circle in half over a little scrap piece of paper and added a ‘1’ & a ‘2’ to them from the grey tiny alpha stickers from last months release. I added a couple stamps from the Ice Cream stamp set to my pics including ‘yum’ and ‘treat yo self’. I also added a little label with ‘keep it cool’, also from the Ice Cream stamp set.
I love the Travelers Notebook layouts. They are really stretching me creatively but I’m enjoying the challenge. I also love how each month the main kit + travelers notebook kit seem to coordinate so that I can use all the bits and pieces together!
