7 Gypsies Travel Mini-Book . . .

I used to fancy myself a bit of a gypsy.

With over 30 years experience in the travel industry 

GA

I can't get enough of travel mini-books.

Here I used 7 Gypsies: Gypsy Moments and Wanderlust 8x8 paper pads

There are things to do with paper that are a  must for me:

GB

{1}  Ink all raw edges

GC

{2} Add pockets whenever possible

GD

{3} Layer with chipboard and Crafty Foam Tape - even stickers!

GE

{4} Use black Crafty Foam Tape or black chipboard or ink the edges of the chipboard with black.

Why? It creates less of a glaring lift than white would create.

GF

{5} Fussy cut where you can to create layers and tags

GG

{6} Odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye than even numbers

GH

{7} Use magnets to create flip pages

GI

{8} Create interest with double pockets

GJ

{9} If the packaging is pretty, save it and use it for backgrounds.

GK

{10} Drag colors from one side of the page to another.

The right side paper already had a blue toned design

so I added a blue toned tag to the pocket on the left page. 

It helps to draw the eye from one page to another.

Thanks for browsing my travel book.
