Hello, Friends! There’s a brand new challenge up at Really Reasonable Ribbon! This time, it’s a color challenge, which is always fun! Since the April Ribbon Club Assortment is filled with beautiful Aqua and Coral Ribbons, we decided that would be the theme for the challenge. And I used those gorgeous ribbons to make this Come Away with Me Travel Journal.
I’ll give you a nickel if you can guess what I used to make the journal cover. Give up? Ok…it’s the Duncan Hines cake mix box that I salvaged from our Easter celebration. I realized just before tossing it into the trash can that it was a great size for an album, and already had a scored spine! All I had to do was build the hidden hinge binding and fill it up. I stitched white burlap directly onto the cardboard base, and my sewing machine performed like a champ!
Each page in the journal has pockets or photo mounts and of course, beautiful ribbons. I’ve created borders with Tropic Checkerboard Satin, Light Coral Satin with a grosgrain edge, and Light Coral Diamond Satin ribbons. The stamps are from the Graphic 45 Come Away with Me stamp series.
More of the same ribbon, but here I’ve added in some ivory burlap string for texture.
I used Coral Rose Swiss Dot Ribbon to add some texture and design to these pages.
And added some sweet Cosmos Daisies to the diamond satin ribbon here.
Now I want to go up in a hot air balloon! How about you? Be sure to visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog for more inspiration and details on how you can play along in this fun challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
