**BONUS GIVEAWAY** Check out my extra giveaway at the end of this post!


Well, well.. look who it is.. I’ve been expecting you! Yes, really!! Did you bring me coffee? You DID?! Awesome.

Here we are, another round of a fabulous design team blog hop with the Carta Bella girls! I hope you’ve been inspired and have loved the projects you’ve seen so far!

Today I have a vacation photo box to share. This was super quick and fun to create. I used the AMAZING ‘Well Traveled’ collection for this. This collection has got to be one of the best travel lines I’ve seen! I love the colors and vintage feel to the graphics. To create this I used a Lori Whitlock cutting file which you can find HERE.

Purty darn cool! And totally useful! You can make several ‘themes’ to store extra photos that may not make it to scrapbook albums and such. Perfect!

I am pretty much in love with this camera die cut. I got the shape in the Silhouette store. Added the ‘New York’ sticker with an Epiphany Crafts epoxy over it to create a ‘lens’. Then I added on some tiny brads and gray cord to make a camera strap. Um, yeah. Hello awesome idea! So happy to have met you!  You should come around more often!

*high five* for scrumptious embellies! I am so into brads right now. I think I might just start calling my husband Brad. Yeah. That’ll work.

Did’ja know Carta Bella’s ‘Well Traveled’ collection has WASHI TAPE! I added a little taste of it here and there to my box. Those cool roller stamps (arrows and cameras) are from Glitz Design. Really neat and I am glad I snagged them!


Alrighty, now for my BONUS giveaway. I am giving away a Well Traveled 6×6 paper pad, layered stickers, AND a pack of three washi tapes! I will chose a winner from my blog comments AND Facebook page. Here’s how it will work. When selecting the winner I will count blog comments first and my Facebook WALL COMMENTS. So if you follow me on Facebook and post to my wall that will get you an extra entry!

  • Go to my FACEBOOK PAGE. Click ‘like’ (if you haven’t already)… post something to my FACEBOOK WALL; that you are a follower, say hello,  leave me a smiley face, tell me your credit card info (LOL)..etc. The comment must be posted between 2/21 and 3/1. YAY! Good luck!

**  Don’t forget that a comment on EACH DESIGNER BLOG will enter you for a chance to win a kit of your choice!

Time to send you off to the talented Jan! I gurantee she’s got something amazing to share with you all!

If you happen to just stop by my blog, or got lost along the way, here’s the hop list:

OK, crafty friends… I will see you next time! Feel free to browse my bllog later and check out the ECHO PARK DT blog hop! We’ve got more prizes there, too! YAY FOR PRIZES! I hope you all have a great weekend!
