Today’s steal, the Heartfelt Travel Collection, by TPC Studios totally marks the spot on a travel collection.  While this collection would be great to scrap vacation photos, I was inspired to use the papers for a different purpose—to create a layout about my latest addiction, Words With Friends.

As soon as I saw this collection I knew it would be perfect to create a layout about my game and my friends that play with me.  The sign of a great collection of papers is one that inspires creations beyond those of its intended purpose.  It’s sort of like winning the lottery with scrapbook papers. It was the postcard art and the map paper that initially sparked my idea for my layout.  Once upon a time the world shared written words only via mail service, but now we can share words via cell phone.

My layout this week is really packed with photos, which can be quite a challenge, so I decided to make the “official” sketch a single pager, with the option to expand if desired.

I love the Heartfelt Travel collection for its whimsical and vintage feel, which truly inspired the non-linear design of my layout.

The collection is absolutely packed with goodness.  There were so many embellishments to choose from, but I had to force myself to save my favorite travel-themed elements for a trip that I will be taking to the Northwest in a couple of months.

I did however, splurge with the self-adhesive gems and the velvety ribbon.

The Heartfelt Travel collection would also be fantastic for creating

  • heritage layouts
  • family vacations
  • recipes passed from generation to generation
  • a layout about your special someone
  • cards
  • altered trading cards (get that vintage look without the work)
  • Americana projects
