Destinations Suitcase Album

Here's another travel album just finished: it's called Destinations Suitcase Album kit from Pine Cone Press. Here is the link to the kit here. I did tweak the kit just a little bit: replaced the chipboard album for that suitcase look for a O-wire bound album. I cut the front & back chipboard covers, added strips of black card stock to the left edge (so it would match the inside pages). Then punched the holes for the black 1-1/4" O-wires. After positioning all the pages in order, I decided to move some of the sentiments around and pop everything. I also made some pockets and additional tags since I wanted to use up as much paper as possible. WHAT am I going to do with so little scrap anyway? I didn't use the suitcase handles nor the button closure - felt it didn't need it with the O-wire closure. The original kit had pocket pages in a landscape format. I changed the album to be portrait style:unfortunately, I had already cut some of the 12x12 paper...........but it was still looked OK. Final album size is 10" x 6-1/2" excluding the O-wires.
Album back:
Hope you all enjoyed this album.........there are plenty of places for photos in this album ........it is still available for purchase. Have a great crafting day.

Well your blog must have sold out this destinations set because I went over there and there was nothing but a summer travel album! It really is beautiful! :)
