India................here they come
Anyway in honor of her trip ahead I thought I would show you a little Travel Journal I made with the Papermania Travel Print Urban Stamps. We have a shop here called Bookstation and they were selling off little wire bound books with the children's cartoon Miffy on the front for only €2.00. So €10.00 later (I couldn't just buy one!!!!) and I was ready to go.......
To start I removed the back and front covers from their wire binding and covered them with Kraft card and then stamped the images in the stamp set all over them. I highlighted one of the stamps on white card and punched it out with the postage stamp punch from Xcut. The lettering is from the Me to You Winter Wonderland cardstock stickers (love them!!!). I thought I would give this to Hannah to take with here as she is forever drawing and this would be a great little diary and sketch book for her.
The little tag is a Kraft tag from Docrafts. I cut out a rectangle from a Post It note, placed it centrally on the tag, drew a line around the rectangle and then stamped around it with the same stamp set I used on the journal above. Then when I removed the post it note I was left with this lovely clear section to write a name and address. Needless to say I now have to go off and make more of these for everyone to put on their suitcases.
Hope you like it and happy crafting everyone.
