Crate Paper Design Team : Hello Japan

By Jcchris
When I was assigned to create for the Travel week, instantly I knew I had to scrap about our latest vacation in 2015. Last November, we had the opportunity to travel to Japan to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and also to visit our Japanese friends. It was a wonderful experience for all of us especially for my daughter. She absolutely loved Japan and still talks about it until today! And of course it is a great reason to scrap all about it.
Before I begin with my scrapping process, I will make a habit to go through all the papers & products so that I can carefully choose the right elements to include onto my layout. And of course, it doesn't have to be travel theme to be able to scrap about vacations. Anything that has similar resemblance is awesome! As I was going through the Maggie Holmes Bloom, Little You + Hello Love collection, I managed to pick out some cute elements i.e.: the globe, XO balloon, hearts, arrow and some awesome sentiments. I certainly loved how Crate Paper collections are made to mix + match.

Don't be afraid to layer, there's no right or wrong whenever it comes to personal creativity! Trust me, layering will make your layout interesting with the entire different dimension on each sticker.
