Road Trip | Travel Layout with Great Escape by Niki Rowland


Hey everyone! This is Niki (@nikiclairecreates) back with a new layout and video using the Great Escape Collection. I opted to attempt a more minimal-style layout than my usual which is a bit out of my comfort zone because usually I like to use ALL the things,! But it was fun to try something different and I do love the result!

I began with two strips of patterned paper from the A5 paper stack. I trimmed a photo to match the width and stuck my photo to one of the strips – I was attempting to make it look like part of the design rather than a separate photo stuck on top, and I think I did achieve that.

I then created two areas of embellishments, made up of Floral Ephemera from the Heart & Home collection, and some Chipboard Stickers and Accessory Stickers from Great Escape. I added a ‘glow’ of green ink under my two embellishment clusters to add a bit of colour to the white background.

I also fussy cut some of the flags and added those to the layout. For my title, I opted to use one of the Puffy Title Stickers and I added that vertically along the paper strip.

I then added a third strip of patterned paper, a bit narrower than the others. This gave the effect of a completed central square on the layout and balanced out the design somewhat.

I then added a few small stars and some sequins and a few splatters of black paint.

This layout is a little different from my usual style, but I’m trying out something a bit different here as sometimes I feel that I do so much scrapbooking that I repeat the same designs over and over. It is great to try for something a bit different and I love the result!

Happy scrapping
