Today I thought I would show you a project I made for the Stampavie Creations Newsletter. You do get the newsletter don't you? If not... As soon as you are done here :0) POP over to STAMPAVIE and sign up - really is a gorgeous FREE newsletter that you get emailed straight from Stampavie. This months newsletter is just jaw dropping gorgeous inspiration! Really... I mean really did you see Jing's Cake on the cover! Is there anything better than combining your favorite stamps and CAKE! :00 And then once you start scrolling inside the newsletter - man! This DT really rocks! LOL sorry... I know I am on this DT and I am not talking me... I just am floored at the cool things the girls come up with!
Ok... back to my Travel Journal - The stamp I used is Stampavie's Laurence Collections Explorer. Not an old stamp - was just released in January. So I didn't dust it off to use it, and I know this is my Dust It Off Sunday post... but I did dust off most all the supplies I used for this project! For the image I colored with my Copics - and then used lots of Stickles for all of the treasures!
There is a raffia looking ribbon across the middle - had forever, never can pull off using it on cards - but this... was perfect. I printed off the internet a vintage map from a free photo share site, and then dug through my old Scrapbook supplies and found a small flash card with the plane and travel log on it. I have no idea when or where I got it... but it is cool and again perfect! I tore the edges and inked it. Behind the image, I placed a piece of Tim Holtz Glassine paper, wrinkled for that cool old look. And then it needed some "fun" pieces. Embellishments that went along with the vintage, travel feel.... I found some old large brads, another Tim Holtz product the metal journey tag, and then the wood scrabble letters to spell out Memories. Seriously... all of these things I have had forever and did have to literally dust them off! I added some ruffled velvet ribbon down the edge and then sat looking at it. It needed something else. But what? And I looked up and saw my little watch makers box... A VINTAGE WATCH FACE! yep... perfect!
Had a lot of fun making this journal - just one tiny problem.... I never travel! LOL I would love to really I would, but with a million animals it isn't easy to go places.... what will I do with this now?
Have a wonderful Sunday! Today - Hubby and I are hauling in round hay bales! Fun.... but the donkeys really appreciate it.
