October Afternoon Travel Girl Blog Hop (Giveaway Closed)

Welcome to the October Afternoon blog hop, featuring the new Travel Girl line!
This collection is perfect for summertime scrapping, travel-themed pages, and more!
I pulled together Travel Girl miscellany, buttons, stickers, and papers here to create this layout about my  sense of wanderlust and how I have yet to visit all the places I long to see.
I began by stitching ribbon from the Travel Girl miscellany pack in a zig zag down the left side of the page, and then I tucked my photo in it and added buttons, a tin pin, stickers, and other accents. The "Stand By" sticker seemed to serve as a fitting title for the page, given the journaling.
I printed the journaling on vellum, placing it atop a collection of papers and cards from the miscellany pack and stitching over the gathering.
Don't you just love these Travel Girl buttons? How about a giveaway?
To be entered to win these little beauties, leave a comment on this post by 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18. Please include your email address in your comment (or a link to a site where your email address may be found). A winner will be announced on Wednesday, June 19.   (The giveaway is now closed.)

Thanks for hopping by today!  The next stop on the Travel Girl blog hop is Mandy Koeppen. You can also start at the beginning of the hop on the October Afternoon blog.

  57. I like how you zig zagged the ribbon and combined all those elements.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I truly love your journaling. I don't think I developed a sense of wanderlust until middle-age - when making travel plans for the whole family sort of dampens the spirit of spontaneity. How I wish that my husband and I had taken more opportunities to travel...maybe when we retire? (I can only hope!)
    I do love the way you framed your photo and used the vellum on top of the travel bits. The "see the world" pin is my fave. TFS!
