Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #22: Have a Nice Trip!
Hello, Friends! It’s time for the last challenge of 2014 over at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. I’ve created a super fun Travel Girl Luggage mini album as my inspiration piece for this one, and I can’t wait to share it with you! But first, the details for this challenge:
Challenge #22 Have a Nice Trip!
Many of us travel around the holidays, so let’s celebrate our adventures! 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!
Travel Girl Luggage Mini Album
I dug deep into my hoard this time around, pulling out some fabby papers from 2012 (October Afternoon Travel Girl) and some Tim Holtz pulleys that I’ve been hoarding forever. I added some little silver charms that have been in my stash of metal items for years and a 5″ square Mixed Media box from Graphic 45. I love the funky retro vibe of this project!
I painted the surface of my box with Deco Art “Treasure” chalk paint because I wanted it to look like the old Samsonite suitcase colors. I added luscious gray plaid ribbon to go with the metal wheels. I don’t know about you, but I’m lovin’ this color combo!
And here is the inside “cover” page. I used my craft knife to cut the image out of the center of this cute tag to make it look like a slide mount. Remember those? The top is left open so a small photo can be tucked in that space.
The panel on the right has room for a photo because I glued items in so that there’s room to tuck in a picture or souvenir. The brad at the top pulls out to reveal a tag, and there’s also a pocket on the far right, filled with retro travel- themed journaling cards.
The sponsor for this challenge is Spellbinders Paper Arts.
They generously provided the design team with loads of holiday dies, and they have provided this very generous prize package for one talented participant in the challenge.
Now go visit the rest of the design team for a dose of crafty inspiration, then get busy making your own travel themed project, linking it up to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous BLOG before midnight, Pacific Time, December 28th.
