2 Page True Stories Layout

I don't usually horde paper. If I love it, I use it and I usually use it right after buying it. But True Stories from American Crafts was a different story. This is such a fun collection, and I wanted to use it for our pictures from Northern Ireland, so I held on to it for quite a while until I was ready to scrap those photos. Today I have a Bushmills 2 page True Stories layout to share.

Our trip to Old Bushmills Distillery was the beginning of one of my very favorite days of our trip to Ireland. If you're ever in Northern Ireland, I highly suggest you go, even if you're not much of a whiskey drinker. Our tour guide, Seamus, was so knowledgeable and so much fun, and the history of this distillery and the science behind making whiskey is super interesting.

I plan on using True Stories to scrap our entire day, but since this is the first layout I've made with it, I had a heck of a time deciding what papers to use. There are just too many good ones.

Plus, I wanted to use all the embellishments. I had to rein myself in so as not to make the layout too busy.

There are some pretty pops of silver in this collection, so I used my Silhouette Cameo and some Bazzill Silver Foil cardstock to mirror the silver of the collection in the title. 

There is so much to journal about on these layouts, so I created my own large journaling card with some strips of paper and stickers from the collection. 

 Scrapping these photos and finally being able to uses this True Stories paper that has been in my stash makes me so happy! Do you usually hold on to paper you love, or use it right away?
