Yellowstone Layouts Using Tommy Paper & My Sheri Crafts Inspiration

My husband gave me the greatest gift this summer. He arranged for grandchildren to join us on a memorable vacation to The Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Parks. Joy shared is an even greater joy.  I've been showing the kids our vacation photos for years and talking to them about the amazing creation God has given us to enjoy. It was so much more meaningful to let them see it firsthand.

These are the first four layouts I've made about our trip. They are part of a workshop  for my scrapbooking friends. The first one is part of the Close To My Heart Tommy Workshop on the Go. The others roughly use Magic patterns and inspiration from CTMH friends. I made all four layouts to hold more photos close to 4" x 6."  They used an incredible set of matching canvas stickers and Tommy Assortment of embellishments, which had many Stickease left over when I was finished. If you are one of my workshop ladies, hopefully these will help you know how to add photos. Scroll down under the first four layouts to see individual pages enlarged.

Layout 1 - left page 6" x 4" photos
Layout 1 - Right page 4" x 5.5" photos
Layout 2 - left page photo 5" x 7"
Layout 2 - Right page  (OOPS! My hemp slipped on this page!) 4" x 4.5" photos
Layout 3 - Left page 7" x 7" photo (or use 7" x 5" photo and additional 7" x 2" piece of patterned paper on the left of the photo)
Layout 3 - Right page - photos are 5" tall
Layout 4 - Left page 6" x 4" photos
Layout 4 - Right page 4" x 6" photos
If you missed the workshop but would like to have the four kits, please contact me here or by email ( It will be pre-cut and pre-stamped. It will have the papers cut, extra cardstock, Tommy assortment, and canvas stickers for $25.00 (plus shipping to your home if you're out of the area).

Fantastic layouts! I love the bright colors and how the layouts showcase your photos rather than overwhelm them. What a great trip that your grandchildren will always remember.
