Paper Crafting With Travel Light By We R Memory Keepers

Posted by JulesinParadise (Jules):

If you plan any trips this summer, short or long, near or far away, this line of products by We R Memory Keepers is the go to product to scrap your trip.  It is also perfect for stay-cations, which so many of us are having due to the economy.  And, what a better way to economically scrap these events than to have it all in one package...or almost all.  

The Travel Light paper pack has not only three of each of the wonderful travel/vacation papers but stickers, a large shiny alpha and a page of the oh so popular little letters in three sizes.  The only things else I ordered were the layered tags, the layered words and a pack of the vintage tags.   

I used these products to scrap not one trip but three different ones and part of a stay-cation we recently had with friends from out of town.  Talk about a versitile line! Just look for yourself.

Last January, when our friend, Clare was visiting from New Zealand, Pam B flew into Tampa and the three of us drove to Anna Maria Island to pick up Janet M.  Thanks to Clare, we were bound for Captiva Island for three wonderous days of girlfriend fun.  While I have scrapped some of these photos with more tropical papers, the Travel Light line seemed so appropriate for the fact that is the last thing we did.
Recently, friends of ours from St. Louis, came for a week's visit.  We spent part of the time in Winter Park, Florida, a town about two hours away from ours where we had never been.  We stayed at a lovely historic hotel right on the main street and visited a museum, took a boat ride, ate at lots of wonderful restaurants recommended by a friend and had such fun.  

I collected brochures, admit tickets and other memorbilia during our visit.  I created this pocket page out of numerous papers and topped it off with the silvery bracket from the cover of the paper pack!  The variety of the papers in the pack and the additional layered words helped create a place in my album for things besides photos.

The rest of our visit with our friends was a stay-cation.  One day we rode the Jolly Trolley (a trolley that runs from our town down to Clearwater Beach and back on weekends) We had snacks at two beach side bar and grills there and worked our way back up to our town with stops along the way. 

I like to incorporate coasters and take out menus on these types of layouts.  A coating of an acrylic sealer or isolating these items that are most likely acidic from the photos is a way to protect the rest of the layout. 
Another part of our stay-cation included a visit to the newly built museum housing the Dali collection.  If the incredible art by Dali is not breathtaking enough, the building and the grounds which includes a labrynth is amazing as well.  I used two of the bookmarks we were given in the gift shop as the title for the layout and the papers from the Travel Light collection highlighted the photo and the book marks so nicely.

The final layout I completed with these wonderful products was to add yet another to my Med Cruise album from our trip a year ago.  I took so many pictures of the Acropolis in Athens, that I could probably do an entire album on just that location alone.  But, with time constaints what they are, I decided to print out my seven favorite views in wallet size and one slightly larger of my honey and me.  The layered photo corners from the layered tag set pulled the whole page together as did the journaling paper from the paper pack. 
So, stay-cation or away vacation, We R Memory Keepers' Travel Light line is versitile and economical.  Now I am off to scrap many more layouts with these wonderful papers.  Join me?
