Simple Stories Urban Traveler and Sketch

The new Simple Stories Urban Traveler collection is such a great combination of bright red and blue grounded in creamy yellows and green.  It reminded me of these photos of my daughter going off to camp for the first time last summer.  Can't believe we actually gave her up for 10 days.  I know she had non-stop fun, but it was the longest week and a half of my life.
Thought I might include a fun sketch to make your own page and push yourself to use more photos on your page.  These are all wallet-sized and fit perfectly across the 12 x 12 layout.

Urban Traveler comes with blue cardstock sticker letters, which probably would have worked great too, but because I used the dark blue patterned paper, I opted for some contrast and grabbed alphas from the Summer Fresh collection.  Love how you can easily mix and match alphabets among the Simple Stories collections.

Love how some of the stickers are already stacked in clusters.  All I needed to do was to find the right spot, add some foam tape and stick it to the page.

The cardstock stickers in this collection are so much fun.  Just add a little foam tape and they pop right off the page or photo.
I made these very simple notecards so that my daughter can use them to write home next summer when she goes back to camp.  The graph paper makes a great neutral background so that the stickers pop off the card.  I cut the tails from one of the patterned papers.

Thank you for stopping by -
