Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop! Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy a sneak peek of the Summer mini catalog, releasing on May 1.
If you have been following the blog hop in order, you have just come from Jennifer's blog featuring the single stamp set Sail Away. Didn't she do an amazing job with a single stamp?
I totally love travel stamp sets and coordinated accessories, and this mini has some beautiful options! Today I will share some projects using the stamp set Travel Log. Road trip! First, a bon voyage card.
This card served double-duty, as it was also my card for Paula's Summer mini card swap over at Stampin' Addicts. I created my own suitcase by rounding the corners and embossing with the Square Lattice embossing folder. The Bon Voyage sentiment was printed with My Digital Studio. Although faint, I used an embossing plate to texturize the background as well.
Stamps: Travel Log; Paper: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Nautical Expedition DSP; Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy; Accessories: Early Espresso baker's twine, Eyelet, Word Window punch, Small Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Corner Rounder punch, My Digital Studio sentiment (Bradley Hand ITC), Circle Scissors Plus, 3-1/2" Circle die, Square Lattice embossing folder, Perfect Details Texturz Plate, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread.
Travel Log is a perfect scrapbooking stamp set. Here is a page of the weekend trip we took to Ducktown, TN for hubby's 100-mile mountain bike race.
We looked around the Ocoee River, site of the 1996 Olympics canoe, kayak, and slalom events, while we waited for him to finish. You can see DH didn't feel so peppy when he was done. Little Missy is gonna drive tired Papa back home. :)
Stamps: Travel Log; Paper: Pacific Point, Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, Melon Mambo, Very Vanilla, Nautical Expedition DSP; Ink: Early Espresso, Not Quite Navy, Sahara Sand, Melon Mambo, Versamark; Accessories: Clear embossing powder, Early Espresso baker's twine, Scallop Square punch, Tasteful Trim, Big Shot.
And hopefully this project isn't too much of a stretch. This set seems to lend itself to masculine color palettes, but I wanted to create a more feminine and colorful travel journal.
I kept the front free of bulky accessories, while still adding layers. I used "supporting" stamps in this set to create tabs and a cute border on the inside page.
