Scattered Hearts Cricut Blog Hop: Beach Vacation Scrapbooking Layout using the new You Are Here Cartridge

Today's post is brought to you by the Scattered Hearts Team! I'm proud to be a member of this leading team at Close To My Heart. This team is full of amazing artists and I have a real treat for you today: a blog hop of projects made by team members using the Close To My Heart Cricut collections.

If you arrived from Pink Cloud Scrappers with Lori, you are on the right path. My project is this beach layout using images from the You Are Here cartridge and stamp sets.

The hardest part of this project was deciding where to start since this cartridge has 700 images. They are all travel related and I love to travel, but the sand castle really won me over so my first You Are Here page has a beach theme.

If you'd like more information about this project, continue reading. If you are ready to see the another Cricut project, hop on over to Scrappin with Heather to see what she's made.

Project Details

One of the things I love about this layout is the use of our new two-toned cardstock. The front of each sheet is the original color, but the back side is a slightly lighter shade. I love how it works for the sandcastle -- using two different colors in our palette would have made the contrast too bold. But cutting the layers out of the two sides of our new Toffee paper made it just enough to highlight the details.

You can also see the difference two-toned makes in the Lagoon water. Our paper still has a white core which helped me create the waves in the ocean.

This layout also introduces our new Color of the Year, Bashful. This beautiful soft pink is so trendy and was the perfect addition to my beach layout. 

We have a full lineup of Bashful items including Cardstock, dye and pigment inks, reinker, glitter paper, albums and even the pearls.Don't they add so much to the cute beach bag on this layout? You will also see this trendy color pop up in other products through out the year.

The You Are Here cartridge is part of a bundle that includes a paper pack plus three great travel stamp sets that coordinate with the images on the cartridge. This tag was made from a cut on the cartridge and stamped with one of the includes stamps. Toffee paper and ink were used to get the soft tone-on-tone look which was perfect for this layout.
