Rainbow Travel Journal

Not just one challenge, not two, or three, but four challenges in one. This was a challenge in it's self, but really fun.

Challenge #l was a rainbow and Gingersnap Creations. Wanted to make some journals for an upcoming reunion, had some paper in my stash and covered the composition notebook. Added some other colors on the cover and stamped "Memories" on the green. and "Enjoy" on the yellow.

Added pocket in red to hold the chipboard luggage tag. Chipboard was also one of the challenges at GC. Using chipboard is new for me, have purchased some and had also been given coasters from the local restaurant. Made a die cut of a tag from Sizzix, the tag was the challenge at Crafty Creations. The chipboard used had advertising on it, so it was necessary to cover the tag, used travel paper, then stamped it with "Our Journey" added ribbon, the tag can be used as a luggage tag for easy identification when locating your luggage at the airport.

The red pocket also has our "Our Journey" stamped on it (sorry the picture doesn't show the stamp.)

The last challenge was for Cinema Saturday Challenge, using red stitching, representing the movie "Field of Dreams." The red stitching was added to each white mat and also around the edge of the entire journal. (Once again I need to work on my photography.)

This is one of my favorite projects, in the past I have done notebooks for bridal showers, Christmas gifts for fellow employees, recipes books, and now a travel journal.

Just a quick note, I used a MOJO MONDAY sketch for the layout, it really works great, only required one full sheet of 12 x 12 printed paper, am ready to product a few more journals. There are all kinds of sketches out there the layouts are prefect for doing the notebooks.

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty day.
