This summer I took a trip with my mom and my husband to New York. It ties with London as the best trip I have ever taken. My husband had a conference during the day, so my mom and I spent all day being tourists in the city and then in the evening, after my mom had turned in, my husband and I would enjoy the night life. We saw Cinderella on Broadway, spent an entire day in The Met and had our portraits draw in Central Park.
I don't love scrapbooking, but, I didn't want to lose any of memorabilia from the trip, a vacation box seemed like the perfect fit. This post is part of a paid campaign with American Crafts, but all opinions are my own.Project Life, it appeals to the crafter in me, because I still get to create, but it doesn't need scissors or glue, so it comes together quickly. Project Life features sheet protectors that are designed for your favorite photos, add writing to a few Project Life cards and add to the protectors for a finished layout, fast.
For this project, I decided to use Project Life elements to create something else, I used the Vintage Travel Core Kit because it features travel themed images such as maps, which I loved for a project featuring my vacation.
- A wooden box, I love this flat box that I found at Michaels
- Project Life Cards, You can find The Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic Core Kit or the Vintage Travel Core Kit at Michaels as well.
- Paint (I used a charcoal color)
- Mod Podge
- Photos from your trip
