travel mini ...

Over on the Heidi Swapp blog the latest Make Pretty Stuff ebook was recently released. ( link in my sidebar).  It is full of beautiful projects that Heidi, the team and I created using the new Joann collections. I shared this pre made travel journal that can be prepared in advance and then taken on your next holiday.
I started off with the the Mini Tag album and used the Ephemera pieces, Numbers and Words Stamps to complete my journal.


I used some seam binding to hold  it all together.



I added a plastic pocket to the front  inside cover to hold tickets.


Adding some  Velcro dots for easy closure.


I added one of the large Die Cut tags to add an extra page in the album.



Throughout the journal you can see I added lots of stamping to add an edgy feel.


Here I cut a window in one of the pages and added some clear plastic inside the window to hold photos.


I trimmed a piece of pattern paper and pushed it through the centre of the tag album to form a flap.



Extra tags for journaling.



Here you can see I added a glitter 3x4 card for some interest.


The back side of the extra flap.



A spot to hold all those plastic keys you seem collect.



I used the day stamps to keep track of  spending.



At the end I added in another clear plastic  sleeve for extra storage .



Be sure to check out the other beautiful projects in the Make Pretty Stuff  ebook, you will not be disappointed.

This is very cool Kim! I totally noticed the "edgy" or freestyle look and it's perfect for a travel mini! Would love to take it on my summer trips ;)
