Capture Memories!

“The gladdest moment in human life, me thinks, 
is a departure into unknown lands.” 
– Sir Richard Burton

To travel is to discover,
Its all about exploring the unknown,
making memories,
capturing the moments
those good old days... 

Filled with freshness, lively designs, happy colours and soothing feel
Heidi Swapp - September Skies Paper Pad suited the best to work with.

The theme being travel, I choose the following papers
with graphic elements with blues and greens .
(oh these patterns are amazing!)
Decisions, decisions, decisions! 
Which paper goes at the top?
Which paper goes at the bottom?
Which paper dwells in between?
(after a bit of thinking...)

Using the amazing super sturdy Tonic super trimmer
I have trimmed the following papers according to the sizes mentioned below.
(12" x 12" - Base)
no need to trim
(11.5" x 11.5"- Centre)
(11" x11" - Top)

Then I decided to go with the following paper being at the top.
(It is upto you to decide which paper you want to embellish.)
I turned the blue pattered paper over and used the white page instead as I love White.
(There are several times when breathing space is required.Hence White suited the best.)

Viola! After deciding their positions it is time for the icing.
I picked these 2 papers from the Stack with some 
amazing quotes, words, patterns, bright and happy snap cards.
Timmed them using the super amazing Martha Stewart Scissors.
(It is always a good idea to use the snap cards to make your projects interesting
 and to give that little memory touch.)

Then I chose the following papers and 
trimmed them according to the sizes of the snap cards. 

Having looked at all the snap cards I picked few of the co-ordinating ones,
especially the ones with travel icons and memories icons.
I loved the friends forever, happy trails and smile pretty.
(good old memories! These few words took me right back in those times.) 

Then aligned each of the following snap cards
to that of the black trimmed paper pieces.
Using the super tacky - red tacky tape I pasted the snap cards 
on to the black cards to make the snap cards sturdy.
(I always prefer using the amazing tacky tape 
due to its  super tacky and transparent clear crisp sticking qualities.)

Lets begin assembling now.
Using the super red tacky tape - especially 24mm is excellent to stick and align the 3 papers 
in the centre as shown in the image below.
(There are several ways to arrange these papers)
(The red tacky tape is also a bubble free solution to stick your pages)

Now its time for the snap cards arrangement,
Using the 3D foam tape and the red tacky tape - 4mm and 8mm suits the best
(It is always a good idea to add dimensions to you layout, 
it add depth and makes your layout look interesting, 
hence a play with both is must.)
(Its a must must have tacky tape.)

Once all the snap cards have been placed
its time to add the photo mats.
(There are several way to arrange the snap cards and photo matts.) 

Moving it all around and then deciding where it looks good 
could be very fun idea to experiment.

Oooh these eye candies are just too amazing.
Playing around with it all is indeed super fun.
(I just cant get my eyes of these candies, they are so yum..
I love these embellishments.)
But at times a question about how to stick them often gets me thinking..
All thanks to the amazing tacky glue
it dries all clear and indeed a perfect solution for all the sticking problems
(If you haven't tried it yet, its must a try). its time to add some cherries on the top, using the amazing and super cool
(These beauties are a must, they are just super cool and can do 
wonders in beautifying your projects and add those little emotion touches and boost up your page. )

And here it is...all ready...
