Caribbean Week NYC Day 5: Carnival Scrapbook Design Ideas, More Mas, and...

Making Carnival Memories:

If it's one thing I love besides creating jewelry and art, it's making memories and scrap booking all of my experiences. So I collaborated with a friend/client and created some simple and easy scrapbook pages for your carnival experience.
Here's what you do:
-Save tickets and wrist bands: from the plane ticket, drinks, food, fete, down to your carnival wrist bands.

These are perfect to add to your pages

-Save some feathers, beads, or jewels from your costume or headpiece to add to your scrapbook page for embellishments

-Take photos or thank goodness for TriniJungleJuice, TriniScene, WeLime, TheMagicMoments websites, I'm sure you're bound to make their website, so GRAB those photos.

-Write down your favorite chunes(songs) from the road, try and remember anything special that happened so you can document them, and also have fun when creating your page.

Scrapbook Page #1:
I focused on one costume, frontline. I used a sparkled sea blue card stock, which can be purchased at any craft store like Michael's.
I then used some colors like the orange to pop off the page, some pink cards stock for descriptions, jewels from the costume, and tickets saved.

Create your doodling designs around the photo with a white gel pen. Here's a before and after.


Scrapbook Page #2:
The orange in the costume popped so I used a card stock background filled with imagery. I used a regular tag that's sprayed for a tie dye effect with a product called glimmer mist, added some embellishments from a pair summer sandal stickers, a ticket, and some jewels. I also wrote around the photo but with the write gel pen you can actually write onto the pictures.

This is just a sneak peek of a few scrapbook ideas that can be used to create memorable pages for your books or for even page that can be framed and displayed in your home....
