Monthly Moments: July...

Good morning, Papertrey Ink fans!

The Monthly Moments stamps and journal cards by Papertrey Ink for July are all about travel and adventures! I had to scrap one of my favorite pictures from our trip to the Rockies a few weeks ago. We traveled up Trail Ridge Road to the top of the Rocky Mountains, what a scary but gorgeous ride!! Most of the road does not have guard rails and has huge drop offs. I wouldn't want to have a tire blow out! Up at the top, we got out and walked even higher, where I took this pic of my husband. Did you know it's considered tundra up here? Everything above the tree line is tundra. It gets VERY cold, yet it's hot and you get sunburned while up there. So strange, but darn was it ever amazing!!! A trip everyone should take, truly.

So I printed out this photo at 8.5 x 11" at home. I would have liked to do a 12x12", but I don't have a large format printer. Then I cut a few of my favorite pieces out of the Monthly Moments: July Journal cards and a few from the free July download (free with purchase), added some stamping from the Monthly Moments: July stamps and the Monthly Moments: Travel Plans stamp set.

The colors in the Monthly Moments Journal Cards this time work great with outdoor photos, I must say! "This" is cut from the new Wet Paint Cuts II dies.


I love that I have a large photo of this to keep....it was one of my favorite pics from our trip.

This one is a pocket page from the 4th of July, just a few of my favorite pics from that day. I used the Monthly Moments: July stamps and dies, Monthly Moments: Travel Plans stamps, Wet Paint Alphabet stamps and the Monthly Moments: July free download.

We stayed home on the 4th and attended some of the functions our neighborhood had put on, then later watched the town's fireworks from our back deck! The top right-hand pic is of my family hanging out waiting for it to get dark enough for the fireworks to start. You can even see my little dog. lol 

"Destination", "lodging" and "details" are cute little stamps from the Monthly Moments: Travel Plans stamps. Even though we stayed home on the 4th, I thought it was fun to incorporate them into my journaling! I cut the July die from several colors of cardstock and stamped the "4th".

Our rec center does such fun things for the holidays. For the 4th, they had a parade, pool party with DJ, games, lunch and free cotton candy. Nothing like a holiday without cotton candy. Ha. I was bummed I didn't get pics of the fireworks, because some friends stopped over later and we were too busy chatting. I completely forgot about getting pics of the fireworks!

Love your layouts, Danielle! Red, white and blue with lots of other cheerful colours added. Fab photos and journaling, too.

For large-format prints try Scrapping Simply or Persnickety Prints. Their everyday price is $1.99 and sometimes they run sales! Good quality, quick turn around. I scrapbook digitally and these are my go-to print sites.

Love your layout and use of the new PTI products!

I don't use pocket pages, and don't scrapbook, but I do love these travel themes for the July Release to use in my cardmaking.
