Update on Road Trip journals...

Edited 7-12-11 for more product information links. See below. :)

Hi guys. Hope your week is going great. We spent the weekend at the girls' softball tournament. Six games squeezed into Saturday and Sunday with 105 degree temps. That was crazy!!

Thank you so much to your response to the Road Trip mini albums. I've had many requests for some more of the albums. I've collected a few more fun items to mix the albums up a bit so I'd be happy to put some more kits together. Look for them after July 15th when I wrap up my Papertrey projects for this month. The kits will vary a bit from my first versions.

If you're looking for inspiration for your Road Trip album, stay tuned to Lisa Truesdell's blog. She has a post up about her road trip album and has a few goodies from my Road Trip kit pictured + some yellow tags + the Air Mail kit. I love Lisa's style and how she pulls together little tidbits and design elements. Check out how she used masks to mist a few of the papers and tags. Love that idea! I can't wait to see how Lisa pulls her album together.

I'm also intrigued with Ali Edwards' Scrapbook on the Road class. Am thinking I need to sign up for the class just to see what it's all about. Have you taken the workshop?

Also, to answer a few questions: The camper stamp is from American Crafts and is called Campy Trails Trailer . The blue route 66 looking stamp is from Ali's stamp set called Are We There Yet?, which is sold out at Two Peas but you might try Technique Tuesdays site or do a Google search. The US stamps is from Papertrey's Road Trip stamp set, along with other sentiments I used in the kit too + the postage cancellation stamp. Hope that helps.

Off to squeeze a few more projects yet tonight. Come back tomorrow night for a fun Papertrey post!

Nice post !! You get the great images, unseen outtakes, Shore's thought processes while on his trip, and a wonderful trip back in time.

can i ask you a quick question? i see that you use a lot of vintage finds in your work...how concerned are you about including the old papers that have acid in them (ledger paper, interesting little paper bags, etc.) in your projects? i want to put together a project like this and would love your input. thanks!

awwww...man...missed the road trip kits since I was on vacation.

I was wishing for the 'route 66' road sign, but don't see it in Ali's "Are we there yet set"??

I downloaded Ali's workshop and totally loved it. She demonstrated various techniques and provided great suggestions on items to use that you probably already have or items you could pick up on your travels and use (i.e., journal on the back of a postcard). I believe you would enjoy it! Look forward to receiving my kit from you.

I was on vacation in Maine when these last few posts on your blog when up. I was sad to see the travel kits were up and sold out before I got home. I am keeping my fingers crossed to catch one in the future. Before I left for vacation I took Ali Edwards class, Scrapbooking on the Road and learned a great deal of good ideas when journaling, ect. I embraced the idea of using postcards from her class, I took alot of pictures but sometimes postcards do capture the picture of the area better than I would, little tidbits like that were very useful. I loved her videos for the class.
