It's been a busy few days getting my life back to normal after our family trip to St. Maarten. Unpacking, laundry, grocery shopping -- always the worst part about traveling! But we had a great time and the weather was perfect ....
I got a chance to get back into my studio yesterday so I completed the 3rd release in our series of 2016 travel album kits. The first two have been very popular ....
Vintage Travel Scrapbook Mini Album with Carta Bella
Aren't the colors in this collection wonderful? The 8x9" chipboard binder album includes 12 6.5x8" scrapbook pages plus 9 plastic photo sleeve pages. The album will hold at least 60 photos. The title on the cover says "Adventure: For the Love of Travel" and some of the other pages say "Explore", "Sightseeing", and "The Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins with a Single Step". To see my handmade albums and kits, be sure to visit my online shop at www.artsyalbums.shop.
Hope all of your travel or "stay-cation" memories are wonderful this summer!

To create my album, I found three small pieces of scrap chipboard. I used white, but you could easily use regular grey chipboard and cover the pieces with pattern paper or paint. The two cover pieces are 5" x 6 1/4", and the other piece is 4" x 6". I used a heavy-duty hole punch to punch binding holes in the front and back cover pieces.
Next, I taped one end of my black chunky twine to the back of my 4x6 chipboard, applied a small amount of liquid glue to the front, and starting wrapping the twine around the board. I repeated this process several times with black, grey, and white chunky twine ... taping the ends on the back, and glueing on the front. I finish the top of the piece with red twine for a pop of color.

The scrapbook is available as a DIY kit, or you can order it already finished. What a fun way to remember and share your trip with friends, family and future generations!

Colorful, summer themed paper, pockets, tags and an envelope adorn the pages of this beautiful album. The cover has paper and embellishments from Carta Bella called "Soak Up the Sun".

I love all of the pockets! I'm also excited about the more masculine paper line Lori designed for Echo Park called Pinstripes. It's a great collection for all of your "guy" projects. The "I (heart) DAD" title on the front is also another design in Lori's shop called I Love Dad (link below).
Now, back to Lori's blog hop ... your next stop is Kathy Skou!
