Can you believe it’s ScrapMuch?! reveal time again?! Where have the last 2 weeks gone? I feel like June is just flying by, and I hope that summer slows down and doesn’t go anywhere near as fast as June has. Speaking of summer, I’m so happy that summer officially arrives tomorrow! We’ve had such a long, cold, hard winter that the arrival of summer is extra sweet this year.
Inspired by summer and sunshine I decided to scrapbook some pictures from a trip to Mexico for this week’s sketch.
Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch:
Supplies used: Cardstock-Bazzill; Patterned Paper-Pink Paislee, BoBunny; Most circle elements (brads, rosettes, chipboard pieces, gems)-Pink Paislee; button-Bazzill; Floss-Close To My Heart; Ribbon-Pink Paislee; Tile-Pink Paislee; Sequins-Teresa Collins; Washi-Tim Holtz, Bella Blvd; Pearls-Melissa Frances; Distress Ink-Tim Holtz; Title letters-American Crafts, Heidi Swapp; Paint-Claudine Hellmuth Studio; Stickles-Tim Holtz, Mist-Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
I went with a lot of purples because it’s a common decor colour throughout the resort at Hard Rock Cancun. I went a little wispy with the distress ink because it reminds me of the wispy clouds. The music washi tape is absolutely perfect for a resort focused on music. And it really is a beautiful life. I’m very blessed I’ve been able to take so many incredible vacations.
I only visited Hard Rock Cancun for a day shortly after it rebranded and I admittedly took TONS of pictures as the resort is FILLED with music memorabilia. In keeping with my new love for pocket page scrapbooking I added a second pocket page of some of the pictures I took that day.
Here are the two pages together:
I just pulled some of the patterned paper and embellishments from the left side to add some cohesion to the right, and on the back of the right I’ll add more pictures and journaling and ephemera (aka “stuff”). The Christmas tree there was done up in music themed ornaments. That fancy decor on the wall is all cymbals. And the drums on display there are John Bonham’s from Led Zeppelin.
