SOTM Blog Hop November 2012


Just got back from vacation on Monday.....and I took craft supplies with me, well doesn't everyone?  Three days before our trip was over.....I pulled out the November SOTM set "Capture the Date" S1211.  As I looked at this set, I thought what could I make that would be really fun?  During our trip we make many stops and I started picking up fliers at each place we visited and it hit me....how about a vacation smash book? 
Now, let's get started. 
 If you are coming here from Kami Welter's Blog you're on the right path.....and if you get lost along the way, its easy to get back on track, just go to HelenOnulak's Blog for a full list of hoppers. We have an amazing group of 68 Consultant's participating this month!  
There are a lot of pictures on this post, hope you enjoy :)
 The cover was made with a bag from one of the wineries I visited on my trip.  I embossed it with Cashmere pigment ink (Z2503) and clear embossing powder (Z821), then distressed the paper with a variety of pink and purple inks.  First embossing the cover with black ink for "October 2012"
 The cover is still not done, but close enough for the hop......I used a cabinet knob and part of the wine bag handle for the cover.  Now, I actually needed one more page in the book and due to the thickness it wouldn't close, so I had to make a foe closing cover with the My Creations Bookmark Album Z1740.  It turned out really well this way.

Each page is done with a jounaling stamp featuring the date of our trip and is inserted behind a picture....The road map signs are of the highways we traveled for the wineries :).....yummy!  So close to being done, the journaling will be done in the next few days.

  6. LOVE the book! And yes, I take craft supplies on vacation! The one time I didn't? We got word that my father-in-law had passed away and were on the road for a 7 hr. drive in less than 2 hours. I looked at the bag-and decided NOT to take it. Fast forward to trying to put together a photo montage for the reception following the service---in a town that had a dollar store, drug store--and that was pretty much it! No Wal-Mart, no AC Moore...no...well, you get the idea! I managed tho! And I never leave home (for any length of time!) without my craft bag!
