Road Trip

August 11, 2018

My husband and I were lucky enough to take our two eldest granddaughters on a trip in our caravan to Cooktown during the last school holidays.  We had an amazing time, saw lots and spent a lot of time together on our long travel days.  I thought I should scrap these memories before I forgot all the details.  Today’s pages show the title page and the first day of our trip.

The title page is pretty simple.  I selected photos to show an overview of the trip and printed them 8 to a page.  I am lucky enough to have an Epson Picturemate printer so I can easily print only the photos I want.  I attached all of the photos to a piece of Basic Black card.  I stamped “July 2018” onto Whisper White card using the retired Date It stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The date is punched out using the Everyday Label Punch I punched Basic Black card using the same punch and attached it to the back of the stamped punch shape.  The punched piece is attached to the back of the Basic Black card before attaching it to the Whisper White 12″ x 12″  page.  I cut the letters for the title from Basic Black card using the retired Little Letters Thinlits Dies.

The second page depicts the first day of our trip.  A really long drive from Brisbane to Emerald.  We made two quick stops on the way one for morning tea at Gayndah and the second for lunch at Bileola.  We arrived mid afternoon at Emerald and had a quick walk around town, the railway station being the most beautiful building we saw.    The photos and journalling block are attached to a piece of Natures Poem Designer Series Paper before being attached to a Whisper White 12″ x 12″ page. I stamped the images from the Waterfront stamp set onto the lower right hand corner using Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Crumb Cake ink.  Since most of Queensland is in drought it is hard to find too much really green grass.  I cut the letters for “day” from Blackberry Bliss card using the Large Letters Thinlits Dies.  The number “1” is cut from Basic Black card using the retired Large Numbers Framelits Dies.  I also stamped the images from the retired Let’s Get Away stamp set onto the journaling card using Basic Black ink.

Creating these two pages brought back lots of great memories, I can’t wait to create more pages from our holiday.

Bye for now,
