For today’s layout, I have chosen to use the new Vintage Artistry Hike More range, this time to scrapbook photos of my husband and my recent weekend away. This range is perfect for documenting photos of beautiful scenery and cozy cabins.
I chose In the Thicket paper B side as the base and used the B side of the Journal Card paper under the torn edges that I added to the bottom left and top right sides of the background paper. The distressed text on the B side of the Journal Card paper was the perfect addition to the subtle tone on tone style of the B side of In the Thicket. Due to how thick 49 and Market papers are, I find the best way to create these torn distressed sections is to cut away some of the paper first and then distress and slightly tear the cut-away piece.
My layout is essentially a cluster of four 3×2 inch photos with embellishments layers under and around the photos to draw the eye in. You could easily substitute two 4×6 inch photos into this design too.
Under the photos I have layered card style pieces and tags from the Hike More Ephemera Bits – I distressed the edges lightly. Once I knew where the photos were going to sit, I added rub-on leaves from the Hike More Rub-On Transfers to the top left, bottom left, and middle right of the photo cluster. I then added the large viewfinder from the Hike More Ephemera Bits to the top right of the photo cluster. This formed the base for my photos.
Once this was all glued down using wet glue and craft foam to give some dimension, I used acetate leaves from the Vintage Artistry Essentials – Foliage (which just works perfectly with the Hike More range), Hike More Chipboard Stickers, tickets, and tags from the Hike More Ephemera Bits and Hike More Wishing Bubbles and Trinkets around the photos.
The final touches were acetate butterflies from the Vintage Artistry Essentials – Foliage, and arrow from the Vintage Artistry Essential Shaped Clips and Jute Cording to all of the tags.

I hope you have some creative time soon.
