Canada Memento Holder

I had an amazing time on our latest road trip to Canada.  I got the chilly weather and snow that I was hoping for.  My husband...not as happy as I was ;-).  What a perfect opportunity to use my neglected Memento Holder from Retreat 2015. It's been sitting in my project bin just begging to be used. You can see Karen's version at Club Scrap.
 
This holder uses folded manila envelopes on the inside. The half with the clasp offers a secure place to stash loose items. This is where I stored all my receipts for fuel, food and RV parks. With a clever trimming trick, the other half of the manila envelopes become decorative pages with angled pockets, great for holding smaller items like tour maps. I tried to keep up on the journaling, ticket stubs and maps while on the road, leaving myself room for photos later.  
 

Word of advise...you start the vacation off wrong if you forget your clothes!

We try to do the Hop on Hop off bus in every city we go to! Great way to get see a city and discover where you want to return to.
 

A vacation isn't complete until a visit to a winery.
 

There are still a few of these projects available in the CS Pro Shop if interested.
 
Mark your calendars and make sure to return!

Orchard Watercolor

Welcome to September's Artist Team Blog Hop brought to you by Club Scrap. This month we've been challenged to incorporate watercolor techniques with our projects. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to dust off those Faber-Castell Gelatos.  If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Club Scrap. If you're already hopping and linked to me from Tina's Blog, you're in the right spot. Gelatos are acid-free pigment ink sticks that can be used with or without water.  I love the bright colors and creamy texture of the Gelatos.  The fact they look like lipstick tubes is kinda cute too. 1. Directly color the stamp with your gelatos. I usually start with the lightest color first and work to the darkest. 2. Mist water directly on to the stamp. 3. Stamp image onto paper.  I used all sorts of papers: cardstock, watercolor and mixed media papers. I d…
