Travel Document Holder for Inspiration Journal

First, I would like to thank my latest new followers for joining me on my crafty journey.  Next, I would like to apologise to any of you that I have not visited lately.  I have been full of a summer cold which has made me feel pretty miserable and I have been trying to spend less time on the computer.

I am off to London at the end of the month so see the wonderful artist that is Wendy Vecchi and I made a Document Holder to carry all the things we need for the trip.

To start I used a Manila File Folder which I cut in half, folded to create two inner pages and then I got out Tim Holtz's fabulous Correspondence Paper pad to create this:


Once folded I covered the inside and outside of the file folder with Correspondence Papers.  For the front I used the Picture Wheel die and then added the word London using Tim's Alphanumeric Thinlits die set.


Big Ben is stamped from London Sights and the view is from the Cityscapes stamp set.


A couple of pockets were added to the first two pages along with Alphanumeric letters, Remnant Rubs and the rest of the Cityscape view.


On the inside back pages I added an envelope from the Bigz envelope die and attached another pocket on the inside back page.


I used Wendy Vecchi's Archival Ink and Embossing Powder in Red Geranium to cover the Idea-ology clip and the double decker bus charm is from my stash.

A view of the back cover and Tim's beautiful papers.  The finished folder measures 6" x 4.1/2", is not too bulky and will fit nicely into my handbag/purse.

Many of the items I used can be purchased from Inspiration Emporium, if you do shop there and use my code Redanne, you will receive a 10% discount from your whole purchase.

Thanks for looking, I will be back on Tuesday to share some 3D projects for Eileen Hull's
  Art With Heart Challenge.  Hugs, Anne xx

  2. Poor you, summer colds are the worst..It just seems to take so long to get one gone. Praying you will be feeling tiptop real soon, and until then, give yourself lots of TLC and don't worry about blogging or crafting. You amaze me with the ideas you create to show off the TH products and all the useful projects you develop. This one is so super with the London ideaology goodies that you've tucked around. Loved the way you've done the time die, it made me think of that huge ferris wheel that I see on lots of London sites (I'm not sure what it is actually called, but the big WHEEL thing-y, that would terrify me to go on it. Bet the views are splendid though). Again, you always have just THE perfect embellie, and the little bus is so cute and apt. Loved all the patriotic Brit colors, and just think of all the interesting items you can hide away in this clever & amazing folder. Great work, as always. Feel better soon. TFS & Hugs.

  4. what a wonderful London themed document holder Anne! I am SO jealous of all you ladies going to Wendy's classes - I wish I could have traveled there to take it with you! There are two sisters coming from the US to the class that I met when we all took Wendy's class at Eclectic Paperie in NH last year - ( if you happen to meet them say hello ) I love the papers and ephemera on this fun holder - what a great place to put all your tickets and mementos from your trip to London - so sorry you have a summer cold - they are the worst - hope you are feeling better each day - Julia xx

  6. Utterly magnificent, Anne - the perfect use of those papers, and so many brilliant details, the red embossed file clip being one of my favourites. What a fabulous place this will be to store up the memories of your WV trip. I hope the summer cold is long gone by then so that you can enjoy it to the full. Keep looking after yourself.

  17. Sending special hugs for that nasty cold - surprising how low things like that make you feel. Hot drinks and rest mi' lady!
    Love your travel folder - I love the one you gave to me and know how much you will use this. I just am amazed, once more to see your wonderful work. Suppose "amazed" is the wrong word as you do everything so beautifully and you think up the most amazing things. Guess with the overuse of this adjective I mean you are just 'amazing'!
    Hugs, Neet xx
    ps enjoy your trip - Wendy V - fab - lucky you!

  21. Anne...you will LOVE Wendy! Such a talent and a genuine person. I always love watching her demo at CHA. This travel album is absolutely beautiful! Love the folder as the base. Using Tim's correspondence papers is brilliant. I love the use of Wendy's embossing powder to completely alter the look of Tim's clip. That bright red is so cute and perfect for your book.

  23. YUCK! Nothing worse than a summer cold. Hope it goes away fast. We had our first winter snow on our local mountains which are about a 3 hour drive away, but it feels like it snowed in my lounge! We kid ourselves in this country that it does not get rediculously hot in summer or freezing in winter. Our houses are built for spring and autumn cos we don't have double glazing or central heating. So we freeze (like now) or fry. I have not yet had my winter cold and plan on keeping it that way, but hey, you can't get away from it eventually! I love your folder and hope that by the time you get to London that your cold will be long forgotten and that you have a faberoonie time with Wendy. Meeting her is on my bucket list!

  27. Anne, how wonderful to have this trip to look forward to but I hope you get well and truly rid of that summer cold, you poor thing.
    This is fabulous! Such a creative idea and I am sure you have thought of everything with all the compartments you created. The cherry on top of the icing is the London Bus charm, that is an adorable addition.

  41. What a wonderful document holder for your trip to London. Please, please, take lots of pictures. How very special to see Wendy Vecchi - I assume you will be taking a class? I sure do hope you are well by then - I started a summer cold right before our trip to Peru. Art has it now and he seems quite ill. Get lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids and take some cold medicine if you can. Of course you know all that don't you!!
    Take care Sugar -
