Travel Dreams + Giveaway [CLOSED]

My favorite time of year is summer. And with summer comes all kinds of new travel-themed scrapbooking goodies! I was lucky enough to work with the On the Coast collection this month. It’s full of bright, fun colors and is perfect for scrapbooking those fun tropical vacations. But it’s also great for scrapbooking any travel themed page. I made this fun “Travel Dreams” minibook and used the On the Coast collection to scrapbook places all over the world that I’d love to see.

club SEI has a great kit this month that features the On the Coast collection along with a fun acrylic minibook. I love using kits, and I love to come up with unconventional ways to use the contents. The edges of the acrylic minibook look like clouds, so I cut them off, added a little paint around the edges, and used them as cute embellishments on the front of my minibook.



I still have the acrylic minibook (now with straight edges) for another project! My minibook is made of simple 8x8” chipboard sheets, bound together with book rings.







I added a few pieces of glittery chipboard, some foam stickers, and a few jewels from my stash as embellishments on each page:



Thank you so much for stopping by the SEI blog this week... it’s been tons of fun sharing posts with you all!

xo,
Nancy

I liked them all but the one that stood out was the "scrapbooking ourselves". Great article and I loved the layouts.

Janell said...

I think the scrapbook ourself was great, it's a good idea and something fun to pass onto our kids. I really like the minibook from today's post, it's great way to use the Coast paper.

I really love today's mini-book. I need to scrap some recent pictures from my first real trip to Vegas. I think this mini book would be a great gift for my mom and aunt, since we took the trip together.

Thanks for all the great ideas!

My favorite post this week was about scrapbooking with just paper - I really liked the way the pages looked.

I really loved all of Nancy's post--she shared so much of her inspiration and her creative process, and it's been such an inspiration for me. I think my favorite post was today's. What a creative way to use the On the Coast paper--I never would have thought about using it for places like Egypt and India, but it worked perfectly for her! I love travelling internationally, so was also excited to see the international theme.

I loved Patterned Paper day! Such fun colorful layouts. And great inspiration for all the awesome patterned papers I have "collected" over the years. Thanks for sharing!!!

Each day's article was great in its own way. I always love anything travel related but I think the fashion related one is actually more thought-provoking. Thank you for sharing your sketchbook with us.

Rachel said...

Great Job, Nancy! Of course, my favorite post was about scrapbooking yourself...

Tanya said...

I liked all the articles, the Inspired By Fashion was fun. I think I really like the Scrapbooking Ourselves. I scrap my kids, hubby, dogs, but honestly have not scrapped myself. I do need to do it for my kids, thanks for reminding me. :)
