Go Explore Hong Kong

Many of the layouts in my album are two-pagers, as I love the space they provide for lots of photos, journaling, and adding pops of color.  I created this layout a few months ago about a special trip that my husband and I took, but had not posted the layout online and I thought it would be a good time to share it.

A better look at some of the details:

The globe and the black arrow were raised from the layout using pop dots. I used papers from two of BasicGrey's collections on this layout because they worked with the theme and the colors in my photos: Wander (in both 6x6 and 12x12 sizes), and Urban Prairie. I added a bit of Distress Ink to the edges for interest.  The chipboard "go" and the letters for "explore" are also from BasicGrey.  The "travel" stamp that I used for a journaling block is from Hero Arts and the globe in the title is from Jillibean Soup. The cityscape was cut using my Silhouette machine and I then pieced the windows back in: 

I also got a bit of mileage out of some of my StudioAE travel stamps on this layout, as I used them to create some mini flags ("travel" and "sightsee") and collage elements ("destination"-- visible in full layout above).

I loved recalling this very special trip and assembling this layout.  Thanks for looking!


  1. I came across one of your layouts on Two Peas and it directed me here. Seriously, your layouts are awesome. Keep up the good work! You are totally inspiring me. I have a baby boy album to create. :)

  2. Wonderful! Love this colorful page♥
