Project Hawaii: Ocean Center page


This one took about two hours, of course factor into that time that I was watching TV so I was not fully focused on my scrapbooking at all times. The results? Oh, I LOVE this one!! I had that “memories” silhouette cut from a friend (she was nice enough to make me some!) sitting here and it just fit in perfectly.

The really great news is: another one done! Stories told, photos preserved, and of course a few more of my project life olive edition cards used up as well. I am still LOVING those!


On this page I went wild coloring in Lawn Fawn sea critter stamps – so fun to add them in as a finishing touch! I also used some Elle’s Studio new goodies, Freckled Fawn stars, and a few Amy Tangerine stickers among other tidbits on this page.

This is my first Project Hawaii layout that you’re seeing here on my blog, but it is in fact my third completed. It’s going REALLY well just adhering to cardstock background like a layout too. I’m sticking with the “just under 4” for one side of every photo. meaning – one side of EVERY photo on this page is 3 3/4. This means I always have an easy time lining photos up and rearranging elements. Sometimes I ended up cropping off more of the width or height as needed of course- it just depends!


I relied heavily on my notebook for this one – I was glad to have it as well because I had forgotten that we were the ONLY people there for about the first hour, and that all said and done we only stayed about 2hrs because it was so tiny, we’d seen it all twice, and we were just done! It’s a good reminder that taking notes in the moment, even just jotting down tidbits and story ideas someplace is so fantastic s a scrapbooker’s resource. I know I’m grateful for mine and I will definitely be working on writing more in the future as well.

Another week, another edition of Project Hawaii and I can’t wait to start the next one – I might make another today in fact! They’re such fun and taking up the entire space of the page is such a different way to scrapbook for me – I’m enjoying that tremendously.


Speaking of wanting to start – Field Guide starts tomorrow!! I had someone ask me about offering it as a self-paced class later. Well, it *IS* self paced! You can go at any speed you like, in any order you like, and you have the materials FOREVER ACCESS meaning after the 12 weeks done new content ends, but the materials remain for you to use as a resource and keep working! This is the final offering of Field Guide so if you’re on the fence feel free to shoot me any questions you’ve got. I’m so excited to dive into this class!

  1. I love this! I have pictures from a 2008 trip to Hawaii that I was thinking of doing using the PL page protectors, but this is similar without the special protectors! Too awesome! 🙂

  2. Lovely! I’m guessing the first two spreads are class content, although I do hope we see them at some point on your blog; I always love travel layouts and Hawaii is someplace I’ve yet to visit. thanks for the very timely reminder to take notes in the moment; I’m off to Barbados next week and have been debating whether or not I want to put together a little journal to take along. You’ve made up my mind for me!

  3. I can’t thank you enough for this post – I have three years worth of family holidays to scrap but because they are photo heavy, have kept pushing them to the bottom of the pile in favour of the candid family shots or day to day events. Using the PL concept, I have made a start on one years holidays and feel energised as the LO’s come together so quickly. Like you, I don’t want to do PL all the time, but its definitely made a difference to the height of my ‘photo’s to be scrapped’ pile. 😎
