Kimberly Wiener with you today! I am delving into this wonderful size of mini scrap books out there that they are calling Traveler’s Journals or Traveler’s Notebooks. This long slim profile really appeals to me. I have always loved creating 12 x12 pages, though a full album was always too daunting to me. The smaller sizes have been a more comfortable scale for me. I will be sharing cards as well as notebook pages for you as I create using the awesome Ink Road Stamps products.
The pages I created showcase my mom’s cat Lucy. A very lovely Lynx-Point Siamese cat. She is so beautiful crazy! Actually very mild mannered, except when she is in “hunt” mode. Then watch out, she will come after you! On the background Heidi Swapp Pineapple Crush 12×12 paper I added the photos and added trims and embellished pieces using stamped strips fit to 3.5×10 journal pages in white cardstock.
Sentiments were a great break as well as another added focal point. The “YOU ARE CRAZY BEAUTIFUL” sentiment from the Compliments Volume One set really says it all! The “All You Need is Love & a Cat” from the NEWEST RELEASE 3rd Quarter Bundle Purr Babies set was popped up with the 1&1/2 and 1& 3/8 circle punches and double sided foam tape.
Accents were added here and there with the Bella Flora Stamp Set inked with Ranger Archival Ink in Cornflower Blue and scribbled over with a Spectrum Noir Aquablend Watercolor Vivid Hues Pencil in Julep.
Accent strips and trims were made in tone on tone using Stampin Up! Blushing Bride as the base color and then inking the sweet floral images in Crisp Cantaloupe from the Bloom Where You are Planted set. Another accent border strip was the great dotted stamp from the Between the Lines inked in Versafine Black Onyx !
I am TOTALLY addicted to the Ink Road Stamp line and have already started collecting ALL of them. I hope that you are a huge fan like me and will enjoy shopping and also anxiously waiting to see what will be released next!!
ENJOY shopping and creating with INK ROAD STAMPS!
