This was the first project I made from Club Scrap's "Cruise in a Box" and I'm already thinking of ways to make different versions of this. I modified mine by adding an elastic closure, and using my bind-it-all to bind the book inside. If you look closely, you'll see my holes, and the ones they provided. I like to take a little journal with me on vacations, so I tailored this for my trip to England this summer - we'll be in London at least one day!
The book part isn't glued into the cover - it slides into a cute little pocket. The pocket is conveniently the same size as a little ring notebook, so I can see myself using this for more trips in the future. There is also a sweet little pocket on the inside front cover.
The back cover - which wraps around the spine and onto the front cover - was stamped using a variety of stamps and masking techniques. I don't usually get this ornate with stamping. It was fun to play around and try some new things out here.
Most of the stamps are from Club Scrap - the Journeys, Weather, and Collection kits. The stamps on the inside journal also come from Club Scrap's Serengeti collection (2009), Hero Arts (London) and Stampin' Up (suitcases and compass).
It was a nice day outside, so I thought pictures outside would be a nice change. It sure is nice to see some green in our garden - our daffodils are just getting started, so we're a bit behind most of the US with regards to our garden.
