Cruise Down The Harbor - 12x12 Layout Process // Summer of Stories - Episode C

June 11, 2019

I am SO excited to share this page with you all today. I adore how all of it came together. The basis of this layout is an easy way to use your 6x6 papers. I hope you get to try it out soon. Now this layout looks really complicated, but it is a simple monochromatic color scheme. To simplify this style even more, I suggest starting with a plain cardstock base and skip the patterned paper. But if you're a pattern loving junkie like me, the more patterns the merrier!

The process video below explains a lot of the design process and decision making for this page. If you have any questions feel free to jot it down in a comment and I'll be happy to answer it.

This layout was severely lacking in dimension. Once I had included this little drink umbrella it helped create more texture and depth. I added a few wood veneer pieces as well to continue the wood feeling. 

This title gave me a little bit of trouble. I knew the title would go on top of this striped paper, but I could not decide what font I wanted to use. Once I saw this set of black and white thickers, I knew I had to use them! I haven't touched these and find them rather difficult to use. I thought why not add more busyness to this layout?! 

The bottom right of this layout is my favorite cluster ever! I just love all of the bits. It covers so many different brands with different colors and textures, I adore it! 

Here's the final page! I love the black border, the little bits of washi tape, all of the colors, I love it all! I hope you certainly enjoyed this episode of Summer of Stories and I would love to see you work on a 'C' Story soon!
