Chic Tags | Santa Cruz Road Trip

Here's a new layout I had up on the Chic Tags blog using some of my favorite embellishments and a pic from our road trip up the California Coast last summer.

I wanted my photo (straight off my phone) to be the center of attention, so from there it was just a matter of picking the perfect pieces to highlight and accent my photo. I started by die cutting my cardstock and layering it over the patterned paper. Next I did some machine stitching on the sun rays, then added the cute Hello flair button right on top of my photo.

I added a mix of wood veneer from the Let's Go and Cloud 9 collections. Road Trip really is the perfect piece for this layout!

I especially love the geotag wood veneer so of course I had to add in one of those right about where Santa Cruz would be on the map, and then layered on the Sunshine & Happiness die cut.

I can't believe we have just a few weeks of summer left. We are savoring every moment and enjoying the days before it's back to school!
