Documenting A Relaxing Vacation with Suzanna Stein

Hey friends, Suzanna here! I’m so excited to be back on the blog today sharing a layout I created with the July kit and add-ons! As soon as I saw this month’s kit, I knew it would be perfect for documenting our Kauai trip from the end of last year.

Supplies | July 2018 Kit, July Labels, Jane Alphabet Stickers — NavyJane Alphabet Stickers — Teal, Jane Alphabet Stickers — WhitePool Time Wood Veneers, Yellow Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Puffy Heart Stickers — Summer Mix, Highlight Stamp, Noteworthy Stamp
There was a lot I wanted to document with this layout, so I decided to do a two-page 6″ x 8″ spread with a double-sided 3″ x 8″ pocket in the center.

I usually embellish my photos quite a bit before adding them to the pockets, but with all of the journaling and recording, I felt like the photos spoke for themselves. I used the yellow tag from the July 2018 Kit for my main journaling, and one tag for my title. Then, I added in the photos, and a few decorative tags.

There were a couple of tags from the July Kit that I knew I wanted to add. The first was the “Morning, Afternoon, Evening” tag. I knew this would be perfect to document how little we did and to emphasize how relaxing our days were. I used the teal Jane Alphabet Stickers so that the phrases would stand out on the simple card, and then added the dates of the week of our vacation at the bottom.

I also included the “Currently” tag because so many of the sentiments were perfect to describe our trip. I used the Summer Puffy Heart Stickers to check the boxes of those that applied!

The last tag that I added was one with three journaling spaces. I numbered them 1, 2, and 3 with the navy Jane Alphabet Stickers, then added one activity from our trip to each line. Again, these were simple things, since our days were mostly spent relaxing by the pool, but since that’s what I loved most about the vacation, it was the perfect way to document it.

I love the way this layout turned out and the extra interaction the 3″ x 8″ pocket adds in the center. I can’t wait to document the rest of our trip with this kit!
