Tropical Travelogue

This was a great project to work on.  The colours in this paper collection by Graphic 45 are bright, vibrant and full of warmth.  I wanted my travelogue to look like a vintage log of a tropical trip and was really pleased with how it came out.  The cover is three dimensional with the vine leaves and flowers creeping through the brass door knob to give an overgrown effect and set the scene for whats inside.

Please click on the video below for the full tropical experience:-) C

Happy crafting everyone:-)

These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
