July Gossamer Blue.....vacation journaling cards

Hey everyone! The Gossamer Blue July Kits are now up in the shop.  This month presented us with some amazing kits and all new projects from our brand new Design Team.  Our own Peppermint Granberg took over illustrating my stamp concepts and she knocked it out of the ballpark.  There were so many great comments on the stamps this month, thank you!

Today I'm sharing some journaling cards I created to have on hand to scrapbook my daughter's recent trip to Chicago.  I love all the travel themed products in the kits this month so they came in very handy. I reached for the Life Pages Add-on #3 (now sold out, it was a good one) mostly.  I love to just rip open a kit and sort out all the pieces and parts. 
 I grouped together like items like the glittery pieces, tags and arrows.
 My daughter rode on a train, a car, a Segway and an airplane for this trip.  I definitely will want to use the airplane, suitcase and location icons. Plus all those tickets will make great accent pieces.
 I reached for most of the journaling cards, designed by Peppermint, and added simple embellishments to each card.  I'll use these as filler cards to go along with photos and plain cards that I will journal on.
 I collaged together several elements and then added machine stitching or stapling. I like to stitch over chipboard alphabets just in case they want to fall off in 50 years.
 Here's some close ups of the collaged accents.  So many fun little tidbits.  That vellum ticket?  Eeek.
 I stacked all my finished cards and the left over travel accents into a little tray so everything will be ready when I get around to scrapbooking the trip.  I also added in some of the awesome plain journaling cards from the shop.  There are lines, graphs, notebook designs and more.  I can't get enough of these in my stash.  I'll also be adding stamped images from the stamp set in the Life Pages Kit.  That little camper turned out soooo dang cute.  I just swoon over anything Peppermint does, right?
Okay guys, there's still kits left in the shop this month so be sure to check out the store.  Don't forget to grab a cup of coffee and stroll through the gallery too.  So much talent there!
