So a funny thing happened after my Sunday afternoon nap. I wasn’t really even thinking of my Kauai album when the thought of this giant pineapple popped in my head.
And so yeah…this is what happens when a large pineapple pops in your head! As always, my objective in my traveler’s notebooks is to keep things simple so I can get them done. And this one came together in about thirty minutes. Sometimes I have a tendency to over-think and mull things over. With this….I just let it ride.
- Cut pineapple by tracing the PNG image from the Beach Vibes Digital Stamps in Silhouette Studio.
- Trimmed already printed accents (flowers+yellow word strip) from Traveler’s Pack: Paradise and stapled to left edge of pineapple–not the paper. Adhered to page.
- Opened palm tree photo (amazing patio view, yes?) and Beautiful View PNG file from the Go Digital Stamps. This is a left-aligned set of words that I removed the periods and aligned the text at the right by moving each line over. It didn’t look as good being left aligned over the building. Printed and adhered.
- Stamped the lines and numbers from the Nowadays stamp set and wrote five key points about being there.
Done, baby. Done!
Here’s a little closer look.
Now what are you going to do with your big pineapple? ;)
Here’s a little tip. Because I remove the staples from my albums and use a Midori rubberband around the center, I can remove the page I want to stamp–or write–on so I have a flatter/harder surface underneath.
