Thought you might enjoy some pictures of our ROAD TRIP album I made. I downloaded Ali Edward's mini class called Scrapbook On The Road. At $14 US, I highly recommend it. I actually created a lot of the album before I left and took an Iris bin with me to store supplies. I did a lot of the journaling on the road while the memories were fresh. This is the first time I have ever scrapbooked like this and I LOVE the results.
|The pattern paper is from House of Three called Daily Junque. I painted (after being inspired by Ali) the light blue color for the front and back pages of the album.|
|This first page is actually a recycled cardboard CD case I covered in pattern paper. I used Tim Holz's tape around the edges. It was a great pocket to stick stuff in. I love the pic - that is my youngest walking to the beach.|
|I kept every little tid bit I could - receipts, cut up french fry wrappers, etc. I journaled on the back of the White Castle cut out.|
|I loved picking up postcards to journal on.|
|I did LOTS of journaling.|
|LOVE my new Fujifilm Instax Mini camera!|
|I used Tim Holz's mini stapler to include items as well as decor tape and a tape runner.|
|Found this photo op outside a restaurant in Siesta Key, FL. The antique Vespa + Instax camera = perfection!|
|I used some transparency overlays - love seeing the next page behind it.|
|Me and the hubby - he took the photo and happened to catch our youngest in the background - LOVE it!|
|Probably our favorite part of the trip - parasailing! Our youngest decided not to go at the last minute - the oldest LOVED it!|
|More items I picked up along the way. We stopped in Juliette, GA and ate at The Whistle Stop Cafe! Yes, we had fried green tomatoes! The place looks exactly the same - hard to believe the movie is 20 years old.|
|Yes, I kept tack of our gasoline stops - thought it might be neat to look back on the prices someday. On the next page I used transparency and made it a pocket page for receipts, etc.|
|A receipt from Cootie Coo Creations and Jack in the Box.|
|I made a highlights page - had to spell it wrong to get the letters to fit!|
|I wanted to list all the states we visited - a tag was perfect for that!|
|I added a glassine bag to slip in all kinds of tidbits at the end.|
I am in love with my little Fujifilm Instax mini camera. I think it really added character to the photos I took. I plan to make a couple of scrapbook pages about the trip and call it done. I think I captured enough info in this little album. Also, some photos went in to my Project Life album. I wish I could remember all the different products I used for this. I know I used some Papertrey ink paper and their stamp set Road Trip, I also used Technique Tuesday's Are We There Yet by Ali Edwards. I used rubons, spray mists, tags, thickers, Tim Holz tapes, stickers - lots of stuff I had laying around. I believe the front, back and several pages were from Scenic Route. It feels good to use up supplies!
Well, I hope you enjoyed my little album and it inspires you to create something today!
