A little vintage love with the West Coast kit!

Don't you just love the colorful Heidi Swapp frames in the West Coast kit? Paired with the blue woodgrain paper and my Instagram prints it creates a great twist on a vintage look! I included some modern trends like the arrows, flair (from the shop), cut title, and the ever popular ink splatters made with the Studio Calico white mist.

Ok, here it is and it makes me wish I was in Maui...right now!
For a something different, try adding in the rub-on words from the Heidi Swapp frames with your embellishments, like I did here. It creates a fun whimsical look.

Did you notice I don't have any journaling? On some pages I include lots of journaling and stories and others I don't journal at all. I felt that the photos, title and rub-ons included in the design said it all...I love Maui, I think it is paradise and I have fun when I'm there!

What about you? Do you feel you have to journal on every single page? Here is my take on it...if you are consistently preserving memories and telling stories, I truly believe it is ok to sometimes let the photos speak for themselves and just play with pretty paper, new products and have fun with the creative process!

Thank you for visiting! Have a fabulous week!
