Travel Scrapbook Page with the Mini Alphabet Punch Board

 Hey We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here, to share a fun travel layout that I created using the Mini Alphabet Punch Board and my Stitch Happy sewing machine. I LOVE both of those tools! I keep both of them right by my desk because I use them so often!.

This layout is documenting the first time I flew by myself. Previously when I traveled I always traveled with friends and family. When I started traveling to teach scrapbooking classes, I flew alone. At first I was nervous but it turned out to be such a great experience. And by having the courage to take that first trip, I’ve had so many more opportunities come my way. In this case, having a little courage to do something I’d never done before, had a huge payoff.

To create this layout I started with a white cardstock background. I knew that I wanted a big title and a row of 3×4 photos. I decided to add the title below the photos but with this design, I think the title could go above or below the photos. Of course, I used the alphabet punch board to create the letters for my title. Each letter is cut from a different piece of patterned paper from the Little By Little collection by Shimelle for American Crafts. I added a few black stickers to the layout so to tie the title into the rest of the layout I outlined each letter with a black pen.

At the top and the bottom of the layout, I added patterned paper strips. One of my favorite ways to attach patterned paper strips to my projects is to sew them in place. The Stitch Happy sewing machine is perfect for this technique. My favorite thing about the stitch happy sewing machine is that you can stitch through several layers of paper with thick thread. This adds so much texture and interest to the layout.

The journaling on this layout is typed with the Typecast Typewriter. I love the look of typed journaling. My handwriting is big and loopy. I like to type my journaling so I can get more journaling into a smaller space.
