Have A Nice Trip!

Greetings craft friends!  I'm back with one last sample for Craft Hoarders Anonymous. Many thanks again to Gloria and her fab team for allowing me to join them this month!  This time around, the challenge is all about Travel!  I love to travel and when I go places I collect little things that I can put into my craft projects - whether they are to go specifically into a scrapbook or be used in a project in some other way.

Many of us travel around the holidays, so let's celebrate our adventures!

I am also in love with creating mini-albums of all sizes and shapes and so my project this time around is a mini travel album.  I used Tim Holtz's Destinations papers, Chipboard, and kraft cardstock along with a few tags I've picked up along the way.  It's always a fun challenge to figure out proportions and how to make everything work.

My mini this time around is inside of a tri-fold album.

the album is held in place with a ribbon that is glued under the gusseted pocket inside the center back.

here you can see the pocket.  On the left cover are 3 pockets and the right cover has 9 photo flaps held down by a strip of paper.

and a couple of shots of the inside pages.

Now it's your turn!  Dig into your hoard and find some items that are vacation or travel themed.  Do you have a hoard of cruise ship ephemera?  Do you have a box of transportation stamps?  Do you have a stash of camping themed papers?  Or piles of Disney embellishments?  Show them off!  Create a vacation or travel themed project for  us!

Whatever it is, create it and then link up on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous for your chance to win a great prize from this month's sponsor - Spellbinders!
