Ah, Monaco! This was such a lovely night trip on our holiday. The “Loving Monaco” page above is one of my favourites from the set, and possibly one of my favourites ever. I’ve really started to love the plain kraft cardstock as a background, and I have to stop myself from using it too much for this section of the scrapbook!
I like the symetry, and the way the tag hangs out of the box.

This page is using the scrapbook starting point Shimelle posted the other week. For me, the colours where amazing there, and I really wanted to replicate that with the paper choices, so I’ve used a lot of really bright colours around the purple/aqua/blue range.
Of course I had to include my little cut out of Monaco (there’s that kraft cardstock again!).
Below is the next page in the set. I’ve tried to use similar colours. This layout is very, very simple- just the four 4×4 squares stuck down with even spacing, then 3×3 photos stuck down with double sided tape on three sides to make pockets. I’ve used various journalling tags (Cosmo Cricket, Odds and Ends ‘scraps’) slipped into the pockets which explain what each photo is about.
We went to the Monte Carlo casino for the night, and so I did a page just on that. It’s such an over the top place! One of the ‘important’ things there is the hectic hair pin turn that they go round at the Monaco Grand Prix. I joined the two photos I had of it together to make a pocket (stuck the photos onto card first, then stuck onto the background). The embellishment is pretty simple. Because it was the casino I used some playing cards we were given as the main feature, and just repeated them on the various elements of the page. The strip of playing card suits that runs across the width of the page is actually the bottom branding section of the paper I was using!
I’m a big fan of interactive pages (in case you can’t tell!). I love being able to handle the paper, photos and special bits. Love!
