Teresa Collins Travel Journal

Here you go.................this is a loooong post with 31 photos. This is a Teresa Collins Travel Journal kit I had received a while back and finally took time to complete this kit. Anytime I make a Teresa Collins mini album, I am always delighted. The colors are my favorite: Ivory, Black, and White with my added accents of red (of course). This finished album is 6" x 12" so all you have to do is cut 12" x 12" paper in half, then arrange the paper in the order of choice. The album kit does include specific page instructions which I followed, then felt comfortable enough to re-arrange the page layout. Many of the pages are still clipped with binder clips or secured with paper clips so there is flexibility for photos to be placed before securing any pockets or tags.
For this album, red grosgrain ribbon ties and a hombre black/grey "yarn-like" ribbon ties. The kit came with rings which I did not use, I used my Bind it All and 1" Black O-wires. I also added some fun charms threaded through a short silver ball chain for some added fun. The front and back covers are printed clear acetate world map. So let's move forward to all those photos - there are some close-up photos of interesting parts in the album................everything is pretty straight forward.
I hope you enjoy this album...............I have another one to make. Have a crafty day!

Spout Treat Container

Here is a really cute sweet box with a spout on the side. Stamps used are from Dandelion: Ping Set MC-1 Friend to Friend and MC-15 Fuzzy Bear 1. The words "sweet" were made from using my fonts and SCAL3 computer program and my Silhouette as the cutter. The template for this cute little box is from My Scrap Chick (the link is here). I filled the boxes with Jelly Belly's but mini M & M can work along with some other fun treats that are small. Finished project size is 2-1/2" x 3" x 1-1/4".
Here's Fuzzy bear:
And, here is my favorite: Ping:
Here's a closer look at the spout:
Have a happy crafting day!
