What could be better for a scrapbook page with beach pictures than a stamp set that is full of great tropical beach images? The Aloha stamp set fit my pictures perfectly.
These pictures were taken when we went to Florida in the fall of 2007 and they're in dire need of scrapbooking. We took a day trip to the Canaveral National Seashore and had the beach pretty much to ourselves. It was a fantastic day and one of the highlights of our trip. We loved it so much that we went back for a second day near the end of the week.
I used a pretty simple design to fit my photos on my page. Since they're 4x6 photos and I was using a 12x12 page, there was no need to crop my photos. A quick mat of some blue cardstock behind the photos and they were all the perfect size to fit 3 photos right in line going down my page. I added a strip of Chocolate Brown cardstock with some ribbon on top (from one of the past StampTV kits) and topped it with some brown buttons from the Neutrals Button assortment.
I stamped the images around the page with dark brown ink and then gave them some light color with Koh-i-noor pencils.
The greeting that was stamped on the blue cardstock and then matted on Chocolate brown cardstock is also from the Aloha set. I really like using sentiments from stamp sets on my pages either as quotes, titles, part of the journaling, etc. They're not just for the outside and inside of cards....you can definitely use them in your scrapbooking, too!
My journaling was done with my trusty Black glaze pen. I love that thing!!
