A Project

One of my friend's at work asked me to make a travel journal for her neice who is off to Guatemala for a month long holiday. Of course I was delighted to say 'yes!' and then the panic was on when Helayna came early and we had to go to Calgary. Luckily I had thought about it alot and had some coordinating Studio K papers on hand so it came together in just a few days. There were 30 pages in it, 2 pockets (you see one here with the circles on it, and a map on the front inside cover to trace the path of her trip.

I used the S! sewing stamps, a little suitcase stamp from Hero Arts and a vintage sign one from the SU Parisian Plaza set. Ink is Nick Bantock Van Dyke Brown. I had several different rubons from Basic Grey and Karen Foster. The binder was 6 X 8 from WR Memory Keepers (anybody know where I can get more of these?) and I painted it with MM Meadow paint.

My scrapbook creating has been sadly lacking so it felt good to make this and I think it was liked by both the ladies (the giver and the receiver!) And she asked me to make some more books for Christmas - I am honored and delighted!

Back to my report cards I go-------

  5. Looks great, Mom! When I'm home we'll have to spend one day in the studio working together. I think one of these would also look great with a map of Poland or Europe inside. Hint, hint! :)
