Hello friends! I’m excited to be here once again on the AED blog to share how I used the GO Scrapbook Kit and one of my sketch ideas to create a page. If you haven’t had a chance, you can go and check out my other blog post which includes eight different ideas for this kit. You can also download a PDF from that post with all of my sketches on it.
This kit has some really fun colors, and it is quite versatile. You definitely do not have to use a go or travel theme to create lots of awesome pages. You will see that my spread today is about time with my family at home. Let’s get started!
For this spread, I used three 12x12 papers from the kit: Large Arrow Circles paper, Mountain Symbol paper, and the TopoMap paper. The latter two papers were cut down to 7x8.25 and used for the background. I fussy cut the arrow circles out of the Large Arrow Circle paper.
Here is what my original sketch looked like:
And here is my finished spread:
I pretty much stayed true to the design of the sketch, but I ended up adding a clear plastic page in between the two pages. The clear plastic page holds the insides of the Chipboard Circle Frames that have my journaling on them. It is double sided so that as the viewer flips the page, the photos with their corresponding journaling show.
I typed and formatted my journaling in PSE inside of 2 inch circles. I printed them out on 8.5x11 sticker paper and punched each of them out with a 2 INCcircle punch. Then it was as simple as just peeling off the sticker backing and adhering the journaling to each of the chipboard circles.
You can see in my photos that I also did some stamping. Inside of the circle that goes across both pages, I stamped “the best” multiple times using two different ink colors. I stamped numbers above the journaling on each chipboard piece and then stamped a few phrases around the outside of some of the fussy cut circles. The date and some chipboard stars were added at the end to finish the spread off.
You can see in my process video below how everything came together for me:

Thank you all for joining me as I created this spread with the GO Quarterly Scrapbook Kit. Planning pages in advance and creating sketches has really helped me to make the most of my kits. I hope that my planning could help you, as well. Keep your eyes open for other pages from this kit on my Instagram @Denine2. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about this spread or any of my other sketches. Happy storytelling, my friends!
