Hip Kit Travel Journal

For September's Hip 2B Square Hip Kit, we were asked to create a travel related project of some sort. The kit included a sheet of Basic Grey's Sticker Elements from their Wander collection...which were perfect for a travel related project!
I decided to create a travel journal & knew I wanted something with pockets so various memorabilia could be easily saved along the way. I started with three 9x12 manila envelopes & my trusty sewing machine...
All the patterned paper in the kit was fabulous! There was a mix of My Minds Eye, Crate Paper and Sassafras. All of them coordinated so well with the Basic Grey stickers, brads & Small Details (those cool round embellishments with the metal hooks that I used on the cover!). This journal would be really cute in a school theme too, using the fun Crate Paper papers and Pink Paislee embellishments that are also included in this kit! How fun would it be to make this journal with more envelopes & make it into a perpetual birthday calendar? You could keep a stash of birthday cards in the pockets. So many possibilities...I just need more time in my day for creative play!

  1. I've never posted a comment on here before, but your blog brings a smile to my face and a feeling of "oh, I could do that!" every time I visit. I love to craft - especially with paper - even though I'm not any good at it. But you bring inspiration and excitement for my projects. Thank you.
