Six Things: Travel

6Things


Tis the season for travel (or dreams of travel) and adventure.

Last night I did a little online shopping to collect some travel related products for an upcoming family gathering. I was reminded once again that what I have always loved about travel themed products is that they can often be used on a variety of different projects. They are great for pages documenting the journey and adventure of life - definitely one of my favorite themes. 


Here are a few travel-related products that made their way into my cart:


(1) EK Success Airplane Punch
: This would be great for punching little accents to create some consistency in
a travel journal. It might also be fun to use one of these to punch out
a collection of papers from a trip and create a collage similar to the framed butterfly piece.


(2) Little Yellow Bicycle 12x12 Snapshot Overlay : This would be so cool as the cover of a mini-album of favorite photos.


(3) Reminisce Travel Icons Cardstock Stickers : I think these are the ones I am most excited to see in person - love the idea of them and hope that they are as cool as I think they will be.


(4) Little Yellow Bicycle Film Strips : These will be cool as photo overlays but also as homes for little embellishments.


(5) Making Memories Great Escape Collection Spiral Journaling Book : Still love this product concept and have the Valentine's book sitting on my table right now.


(6) American Crafts Travel Flair : I admit to using these button-type embellishments a bunch lately. They are a nice pop of color and I love circle accents. There's also a second travel-themed set here.

Ever since I first began scrapbooking I have been a fan of Hero Arts. This set still remains one of my all time favorites. I love them even more for being a certified green business.


This week, on July 15th, Hero Arts is unveiling a new look and new features on their website. To celebrate they are having a whole week of cool stuff happening on their blog (which is a great place to go anytime for challenges, contests, and stamping ideas).

In addition, if you head over to their blog today and leave a comment that includes the initials AE you will be entered in a drawing for the basket of stamp goodness shown above (they sent this basket to me after Anna was born - such a fun, thoughtful gift idea).

Congratulations on your re-design Hero Arts! I can't wait to see it later this week.

    I love this post. There's nothing better then putting together a little book to stash all my precious memories...even if my travels lately are more along the lines of "staycations" they still deserve to be documented. I spent the weekend making mini journals galore in preperation for a few jaunts coming up and a few waiting to be remembered:)

    I LOVE the MM journaling books--have a stack of them right by my desk. Love to rip one out of the book to use on my pages.
    And thanks for the heads-up to the Hero Arts blog. They have great products, too.

    Hi Ali
    Once again a wonderful post thank you. Just a question.... the butterflies on the baby journal are they are stamp or a punch? I have been trying to find a nice butterfly punch but seem to have a limited supply here in good ol down under OZ. Thanks Paula
