We have some fantastic Escape projects to share today from Cycling Team Member Juliana Michaels who returns for a 2nd ride with us. You probably remember her wonderful projects with our Hello Spring! collection. But let's have Juliana tell you all about it...
When I saw The Escape Collection, I immediately knew at least one project that was definitely on my to do list. I had recently gone on a weekend trip with my niece and parents, and of course I had taken a few photos. What better way to remember this time together than with a mini album? I wanted to create a mini album for my niece using photos from the trip.
The LYB Canvas Covered Chipboard Album was prefect for this. I had all of my pictures printed wallet size to give me some room to decorate and embellish each page. I used the 6 x 6 paper pad for all of the patterned papers and embellished it with various stickers, journaling and chipboard pieces.
When I create a mini album, I like to keep the design elements similar from page to page. This makes it easier to design and put together. For each page I used one piece of 6 x 6 patterned paper for the background. I then cut another pattern 4.5 x 5 inches and layered that on the background paper. I then used the 1.5 x 6 inch scraps to create the banner strips.
My husband and I enjoy traveling and would love to do more of it. Our dream is to go to Italy together. We have both been, but not together. To help us stay focused on our goal, I create a travel change jar for us to put in our extra change or what ever money we want to help us save up for our next vacation, where ever it might be!
I created it using an empty and washed peanut butter jar. I glued a strip of patterned paper around the center and then embellished it with pieces from the Chipboard Shapes. To attached them to a rounded surface, I first bent and rounded them a little to that shape. I then adhered them using a glue gun.
I also used the Vellum Tape Strips and Cardstock Stickers. I am especially loving the Vellum Tape Strips! I dressed up the lid with a fun flower from the Paper Crafting Kit. Once it was finished, I added some change and our travel change jar is on its way to helping us save for our next vacation or trip!
Please see Juliana's blog 17 Turtles for more inspiring ideas and details from her. We are so appreciative of all of the amazing ideas from our Cycling Team, Guest Designers and Biker Chicks. I am going to start a change jar this week!
