Bon Voyage with H2H...

Today we are dedicating this challenge to our newest members of the Close to my Heart sisterhood, the new consultants in Australia and New Zealand. We wish you all buckets of creativity and a joyous start on your new adventure as Close to my Heart consultants and want to give you a warm welcome and invitation to participate in our challenges!
For this week's Bon Voyage challenge create a project that reflects your interpretation of "good journey".  
My mom leaves today for a trip to Portugal, Spain & France.  She LOVES to travel and usually takes one of these trips every other year or so.  I usually make her some sort of note-taking device where she can write down where she was that day, stick in flyers, receipts, etc. and jot down any notes that she wants to remember.  For this trip, I made her this mini-album using For Always Paper Packet and  CTMH's new Artbooking Cricut Collection.


Here's the cover...cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge in my CCR (Cricut Craft Room is FREE and is a WONDERFUL tool if you want to do funky things with your images like this....)

 Here are some of the pages...

------------------------------------
For the page below, I used one of the overlays from the NEW Artbooking Cartridge...resized it to fit on a 3-1/2" area and cut multiple ones (one for the top and one for the bottom)...added a piece of Ruby Cardstock to hide the gap and some of our NEW Washi Tape!
Don't forget to save all those little pieces...they come in handy for other projects!
---------------------------------------
Here are the pocket pages for receipts, flyers, etc....


-------------------------
I love these Keyboard Kraft Alphabet stickers....one of my FAVES!!!

-----------------------------------
and remember those little pieces I saved from the overlay...here's a cute little airplane as an accent to this pocket!

I hope you enjoyed my vision of "Bon Voyage" and I hope you play along with us this week.
Don't forget to visit the other DT Members and see what they've come up with!

Great job on this mini-book. It's great to have a useful purpose in mind when you create, isn't it? I'm sure this gift was appreciated! Wonderful Bon Voyage sample for H2H!

Ooh, this is fun! I've wondered about this thin little album and how it would look. You did a cute job with it!
