Not Quite Paris Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paris Flea Market Blog Hop. If you arrived here from the talented Tina you're in the right spot. If you'd like to start from the beginning head on over to Club Scrap to see what Karen has created for you. 

By now you know that Paris Flea Market is one of my all time favorites collections! I'm sure you also know that Paris is on my bucket list. Next month my family is off to the Mediterranean where we'll be sailing across the Atlantic eventually ending up in Venice.  The closest we'll get to Paris is Nice, France. I still think this kit is perfect for the two travel necessities I prepare for almost every trip.  I usually have some sort of journal and I have a folio for receipts and small keepsakes.


I found these little chipboard "Sarabinders" by Hot off the Press on clearance at my local scrapbook store and bought every last one.  They had envelopes, page dividers and paper inserts that go with them. I bought four of them with 20 different packs of  inserts for $10!


I covered the outside with a printed cardstock making sure the images were positioned where they'd make the most impact. Make sure to work the paper into the binding folds. It did take some time and patience but it goes in. I think next time I might paint the inside near the binding to make it easier.
I then covered the inside with gray panels. Make sure to mark the hole each time.

Next came the dividers and panels. I used the same masking technique that was used to create the masterboard
I love my little journal keepsake!


Next came the folio. This is so simple!  I just adhered three envelopes together at the flaps.
 I cut panels to cover the fronts and back of each envelope and added two blank mats for inside. Decorate panels if you wish. I usually jot down confirmation numbers on the panels so I keep the images to a minimum. 

 This is what it looks like closed. The envelopes fold inward leaving the open flap tucked inside so nothing falls out. 
 Thanks for hoping on by! Please continue on to see what the amazing Donna has created today!
