Cruisin'...Urban Traveler Style!

I'm first up this week at 
SIMPLE STORIES
to share some projects made with the new Winter Collections.
Today I've chosen an Urban Traveler mini album and card that I've made!

I'm not much of an 'urban traveler' myself, but my parents take 1-2 cruises a year,
so they were the inspiration for this little mini album :)

 As you can see, I took a tabbed chipboard album and covered the fronts and backs
 with the assorted patterned papers in the collection.
  For the wave on the front I used an acrylic template by Kiwi Lane. 

 I just had to use the camera image found on one of the journal cards,
 so I trimmed it away from the background before attaching it to the page!
  The small alpha stickers are the perfect size for adding a small title to mini albums.

 I like adding a 'mat' to the background paper...I also distressed all of the paper
 edges with a bit of walnut ink.  Keep in mind how you'd like to display your 
bulky embellishments so that when the pages are closed, they lay as flat as possible.
 It's also nice to have a space where some journaling and dating can be added. 

 The new collections are loaded with so many fun and interactive 
pieces to help bring your creation to life!
  Simple Stories has really given us a treat with  
chipboard pieces, layered stickers and decorative brads...endless fun!
