or at least planning to. There are 7 of us heading for Springfield MO for a mini-crop-getaway. And.we.can't.wait!
Looking forward to tons of fun and photos!
A while back,
I found this blank chipboard album at Tuesday Morning.
See the binding with the 7 Gypsies name?
Perfect for the 7 of us traveling together.
I gathered a bunch of my fave travel papers,
covered the album front and back
created the inside pages.
Lots of layering on the cover
and interactive pages on the inside.
The base of each page is heavy cardstock.
Love the use of belly bands
but . . .
feel the need to somehow stop the inserts from falling all the way through.
So I try to create some kind of *ledge* for the inserts.
This one (pack your bags), is a folded piece of paper
so that the insert falls between the folds.
Took a bunch of small file folders,
stitched them together
and decorated the front.
I now have room for 6 photos on this page alone.
Another belly band with an insert.
This time I found these fab arrows at
You can see them here:
Since the arrows are cut from chipboard
they're thick enough to stop the insert.
Wish I would have hung something from the arrow.
The pages on the left fold up and down
and are secured to the page with magnets.
The left page is another belly band.
This time I secured the inserts with an arrow
that is magnetized and slips around the side of the page.
All that's left to do now is decide what to take to work on.
I should have enough time to pare down what to bring.
Famous last words - right?
