Hi friends! Welcome back to my Kids Album Projects and today I have a great hybrid scrapbook layout along with a tutorial to share with you! Each month on the Sahlin Studio blog you can find a new Monthly Template, and this month’s template inspired me to create a layout from our trip to the Outer Banks back in 2019. I have two process videos for you today, first is the digital part of this layout where I added all my elements into Photoshop and prepared the layout for printing. The second video is my process video once everything was printed out. If you’d like to see other layouts I have created for our kids albums, check out this link: Kids Albums Project.
I love scrapbook templates so much because they make it so easy to plan and print the layout, and then it all comes together beautifully on your desk. Follow along below for the process video.
For my elements and papers on this layout, I chose to work with the Sahlin Studio Flashback kit. The blues and tans with pop of red seemed to fit the nautical theme of my photos perfectly. My story for this layout was all about a trip we took to the Outer Banks back in 2019, and these photos feel a bit different now that we have been locked down for more than a year. I journaled a bit about how the kids were a bit tired on this trip and even though we didn’t stay at the beach too long, I hope they will always remember this fondly simply for the fact that we were together.
The template gave some beautiful spaces for some of the patterned papers, so I chose the blues and the krafty tans with a pop of red from the digital elements. I loved how this template allowed me space for longer journaling and yes, the journaling is very different these days than it might have been if I had made this page back in 2019. I used the grid patterned paper as the background, which gave a bit of texture so it was more than just a plain white background. The strips also provide a bit of color with the red and orange and blue dots, and I added one single wooden camera. The word art makes up the title, which is such an easy way to make the title for a digital page. I printed the background page with the journaling and the word art
Thanks so much for joining me today! This layout has made me miss the beach, what are you missing right now? See you again soon!
