Wedding Invites and Travel Journal

I offered to make Leonore's wedding invites for the renewal ceremony.  She was thrilled with them and I have received a few compliments from recipients.  Leonore and her husband are going to Costa Rica for their honeymoon.  She adores my journals so I decided to make her one.  She really likes the eclectic look.  It's a 6 X 8 portfolio all handmade.  I included quite a few journal/picture cards as well as a waterfall for pics.  I know she will be delighted.  I hope you enjoy the photos.

Using my laser printer and the Minc, I made the celebrate in purple.  I cut the tags out with Cricut, embossed the green tag, and attached a LOVE charm.

Coat of Arms printed from computer, fussy cut, and adhered.  The month and year are cut from Cricut and adhered.

Inside the portfolio. This page opens up to more pic/journal cards.  It is magnetized to stay together.

This is the back portion of the portfolio.  I placed a waterfall for pics and topped it with a pic/journal card.

This is the inside section.  Two areas to hold pic/journal cards and the bottom flap is magnetized.

Top flap of inside section.  I used my envelop maker to create an envelop for ephemera.

Journal for Croatia & Slovenia for Jackie

Jackie is going with Don and I next year to Croatia & Slovenia.  Once again, I made her journal to write in.  She keeps track of her pics for the site or day and notes.  She takes all her info and makes digital scrapbooks with them.  These journals are so easy and quick to put together.  They remind me of the old Golden Books I read as a child.  Hope you enjoy!

I used the flags of the Country and in Croatia, each City.  I used vinyl on the edge not realizing it wouldn't stick to material.  I ended up putting Glossy Accents over it to keep them in place.

Inside the front cover.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo on each page.  I used several stamps throughout the journal to emulate it looking old.
