oh me lucky charms!!!

comin' up on saint paddy's day pretty quickly here, so we've got a "multiple choice" challenge for ya this week at shopping our stash. you can make a last minute card for the BIG DAY; ...OR... you can make a project that's predominantly green; ...OR... you can incorporate charms ...OR... i suppose you could combine all of those together, but it doesn't really get you extra points or anything; though i'm sure we'd all be super-impressed, lol! here's what i made:

vintage papers from a few different old atlases; glitter and foam thickers: american crafts; twine: doodlebug; charms: tim holtz; book ring and plain white cardstock pages: staples; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, xyron, sewing machine

i was in the mood to make a travel book, for one thing, there haven't been any in my etsy shop, just enough stuff, in ages.

for another, i've got loads of travel-themed vintage ephemera that i loooooooooove to play with --AHEM-- utilize in artistic projects (that's better!).

plus, i just happened to score a very cool pack of tim holtz travel-themed charms in the clearance section of michael's last week, which seemed like A SIGN, lol.

so i'm officially listing this baby in my shop, as well as this "aloha" book that i made ages ago but somehow never posted. honestly, the plus side on days like this is that i feel utterly unworried by the imminent zombie apocalypse, seeing as how my brains are totally lacking in nutritional goodness, woohoo! :) :) :)

speaking of goodness, and brains, and glamorous good looks, did i mention my amazing design team sisters have also made fabulous projects just to inspire you? it's true! hop on over to SOS where awesomeness awaits! ♥♥♥

  4. Impressive! I like this idea! I never thought about a travel book and your design is so practical! Nice take on the challenge..it gives the players another option. Great work as always!

  5. Very cool! I dig those atlas pages! I also like that you kept the inside pages simple for notes and pix... Very useable.
