Florida Vacation and Beach Layouts

I'm a big fan of using title pages while scrapbooking. Whenever an exciting event happens, I like to make sure it's got a headline before I jump into sharing the photos and details of the event. (I used title pages for my 24th birthday last year, and to document when I adopted my puppy- as seen here and here.)

I thought about making a large 12x12 title page to mark the beginning of my Florida vacation this year, but I wanted to keep the cohesive pocket page look of project life in my 2014 album. My solution? This gorgeous title page insert!

I used a 4x12 insert from this small variety pack of page protectors. I loved the 4x4 size of each pocket and adding the same floral paper to all 3 pockets made a big impact on the title page.  I went a little crazy with the thickers to document this event, haha. I think I managed to add them to at least 5 different cards this week.

I also used this method of adding journaling to this page without having it take up an entire 3x4 pocket. I simply added some paper tabs to my journaling card and tucked the card behind one of my photos. I picked out a lovely floral print from both the title page insert and these paper tabs for my journaling, which really makes the layout cohesive.

And now onto the beach layouts!

Pretty in pink. Perfect for the gorgeous day me and my baby sis had at the beach. I just love all the pretty extra pages I have in March because of my vacation to Florida. Sometimes it's nice to add inserts once in a while. They really spice up your album and it's a good way to fit a few extra pictures in (especially vertical 4x6's!)

How often do you use title pages or vertical 4x6's in your albums? I find that I try to stick with horizontal 4x6's for the most part. But I love the impact that pages have when they are an orientation that usually doesn't appear in your album!
