travel kit - Memories of our trip to New Mexico

The back of the book




the mini tag album insert

Little mini paper bag pockets for tickets etc




This has a velcro pocket that opens

I liked the hidden pages, little pockets for souveniers










flip up pictures and
another pocket




Last year I got this amazing kit from Creatologie to create a travel journal. Carol Wingert has such great kits that come with Everything and the instructions are so clear and easy to follow. Here I will show you how I used it to remember the wonderful time we had when we went to bowling nationals in New Mexico. My husband is an awesome bowler so I actually made it as an anniversary gift for him.

I did so many things that were new to me especially making the tag album in the back of the book. Loved using the Tim Holtz embellishments and all the material.......basically I loved making this and I am so proud of the finished result!

I too love this book. Can you give us some idea of how it goes together, so we can make it our own? I can see some of the construction in the photos, but I can't tell how many pages you have and did you use an existing album, or create your own? Thanks so much for sharing! Jessica
