This month's design team challenge over at the Maya Road DT blog was to use the Journey Album Kit. We all created very different albums and you can view them all on the Maya Road DT blog.
The Journey Album kit comes complete with the binder album, plastic sleeves, card stock, pattern paper, ribbon, chipboard shapes, letter and flower/shape stickers.
I used the album to hold my scrapbooking layouts about my Chicago trip. I really enjoyed working with the smaller format (8"x8") and have had a lot of fun working with my photos. I have actually researched some of the places I had visited to add extra information to my journaling.
On the cover of the album is a map of Chicago. I scanned the map which I used for my sightseeing, printed it on photo paper and glued it to the cover. The cover has then been finished with a sealer.
These chipboard letters were the only think not included in the kit, which I used. The are some Maya Road chipboard letters painted with some new Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint by Ranger.
Here's some of the pages from the album (and yes, I do like my maps, when I'm visiting new places, if I have a map in my hands I'm a happy traveler).
In other Maya Road DT news, six new "Roadies" have joined the Design Team for 2008, read all about them on the DT blog. And I was thrilled to be asked to stay on the MR Design Team for another year, Caroline and Deb are so lovely to work for, and the DT girls are great to work with... all very exciting!
Hope you're all having a great weekend, thanks for visiting my blog.
