The long-awaited paper documentation of my Universal solo trip is now here! I am excited to show you how I brought the fun of the theme parks to today's page. This is also part of my collaboration with Sara Scraps for Summer of Stories. You can check out her video here on her channel!

Let's hop right on into today's star-studded scrapbook layout.
There is something about the glitz and glam of Hollywood and movies that scream stars! As many of you may know, part of Universal Orlando is Universal Studios - a Hollywood-themed park with areas that bring you right into the movies. To capture this I went all out. Stars, stars everywhere.
I adored this star paper from Crate Paper that is part of my July HTKAKWS kit but thought it may be a bit overwhelming as a full background. I dug through my crafty stash and pulled out some colored cardstock options. Originally, I had intended on only using one of the blues I grabbed but figured I should tear into more of my stash rather than less. So, I tore into both the star paper and the bright blue cardstock for some texture and layers.
Fitting 5 photos on a page isn't necessarily simple, but I think I am getting the hang of it. Who knew having your own photo printer at home would be such a game-changer! The 3x4" size is quickly becoming a staple on all of my 12x12 pages. What's the smallest size photo you have ever included in your memory keeping?
Once I had an idea of how I would arrange the photos the lengthy process of embellishing began. I always note that my embellishment process seems to be quite sporadic. Jumping from one idea to the next as quickly as possible. Capturing the essence of a theme park visit through one page meant lots of embellishments. While I may not have any themed indicators like a roller coaster sticker or ferris wheel, the bright colors and fun textures help give an upbeat and interesting mood and feel.
This may just be the layout that made me fall back in love with stamping. Although super simple additions, stamping the title then led me to go dig out some more stamps I could utilize! Do you usually stamp on a majority of your layouts? I would like to start doing so. I have so many stamps and they are so versatile!
My first trip back to Universal Orlando may have been short, but I am glad I could take you all along for the journey! You can watch the vlog here if you missed it! I think my bold color combo of yellow and blue helps the blue sky shine among all of the theme park icons. I hope you get the theme park vibes as I do from this page.
