Stampsmith Mini Travel Album

Hello Friends,
Here I am today with a Mini Travel Album. I used another of my fab Audrey Hepburn Stamps from The Stampsmith. I thought this would be a nice little album to write reminiscences and add photos. Take a look. The "Bon Voyage" is from the Paris Full sheet also The Stampsmith.

I used several Lavender and plum CS's from Stampin' Up and Hot Off the Press. The Perfect Plum CS is dry embossed with a Tim Holtz folder. The edge punch is from Martha Stewart.

The photo image is stamped with black dye ink on glossy white CS. I added three ribbons and a medallion for accents. I beaded a piece of wire to attached the medallion and also glued on a Chinese coin. These were pieces I picked up in the jewelry section of my local craft store.

I made the album with several blank pagers. Here is a photo of the inside.

I think this would be a nice gift for a friend.

A few fun challenges for Mini Travel Album:

Shabby Tea Room: bingo. I used the bottom row Punches- Embossing- Ribbon.

Simon Says Stamp and Show: Show a word.

That's all for now. Hope you are having a great day! Love ya.
