Pack Your Bags & Create a Travel Mini

Pack Your Bags & Create a Travel Mini

Hi, It's Lisa here today along with this fun collection from Carta Bella called 'Pack Your Bags'.

I just love the designs. The colours, the fun images and also the feel. Yes the Carta Bella papers have a really special feel. They are amazing quality!

I have a video here for you to watch where you can see the whole process of this book being made.
I used several pieces of the 12x12 papers along with the 12x12 coordinating stickers here.  

That's all I needed. This book came together so easily.

The die cut papers are perfect for journaling and adding photos.
I wanted to create a mini book to tell the stories at the start of our roadtrip recently. This mini book is just the 'traveling to' bits. It was such a fun trip that I have decided to make a few books to tell all the different stories. That's also why this paper collection was so perfect.

I really enjoyed using the papers throughout the book and not just filling it with photos and journaling.
This page is really fun. I've used the paper with the strips here. I've left the top glue free and used them as pockets to hold the photos.  You can see this better in the video here.
This book has many many layers. Again it's one of those parts that is easier to see in the video.
On a few of the pages I've added vellum behind the photos. Some of the papers are very busy. I didn't want to cover the designs as I really like them, so this way I can still appreciate them but they are toned down a little. 
I'm so happy with how this book turned out. It's busy, colourful, fun, layered and so much fun to look through.
I hope you enjoy this and hope that you like the video here too.
Thank you.
