A couple of weeks ago I purchased Ali Edwards' Scrapbook on the Road class determined to get something ready to take with me to capture life as it happened on my cruise. Before that I had bought "Remains of the Day - a shabby journal of scraps", a self-paced class taught by Mary Ann Moss. After looking at the video, I decided it would be much more time-intensive to get it ready by May 1 (sail date...WooHoo!!) so I turned to Ali. You can always count on Ali for quick but cool things and this little class was no exception. Yesterday I finished my travel journal and thought I would post it for y'all to see. I didn't buy a single thing while putting this together! Every bit of it came out of my paper scrapping stash (which, by the way, is huge!).
The base for the album is a sheer five-ring tab book by Maya Road.
I love this paper...the swirls and ledger lines and the words "laugh" and "savor". Great words for a life motto.
I have no idea where I got this "for you information" block but isn't it great?
Can't wait to see what will end up in this envelope.
The delight arrow started out as a little house tag. I cut off the chimney and, voila!, an arrow. The blue page behind it is leftover packaging from some stickers I had.
Love this idea of Ali's...painting over stickers. It's a great way to use up old stickers of any color. These were hot pink and lime green. It makes a great embossed tag.
I am so looking forward to filling this with journaling on the spot and with bits and pieces of the places I visit. Have to make sure I buy a little stapler before I leave and pack my glue sticks, pens and extra paper clips.
I think the best thing about this scrapbook is that it will basically be finished by the time I get back. All I will have to do is print off some 4x6 pictures. I have been on several cruises and don't have a single finished scrapbook of any of them...just random pages here and there. So, So, SO excited about this travel journal!!!
