"Spring Break" Challenge - Art with Heart Challenge

Today I am sharing with you my project I made for the  "Art With Heart Challenge". The Art with the Heart April challenge is all about "Spring Break" so make sure to stop by the Eileen Hull's Blog to check out all the details and other fabulous inspiration. We are also celebrating the Eileen's New Vintage Travel Dies and you can see the collection HERE!!!!
I decided to make an autograph mini album to take with me this fall (but you can make it for any time of year including this Spring),  I am going on a  Mixed Media Cruise!!!!  I thought the new Vintage Luggage Tag from Eileen Vintage Travel Die Collection would be perfect. It is the perfect size for me to carry in my apron and I will be able to get it out easily to get autograph in and to place small passbook size photos in when I return home.
The Luggage Tag is made in one solid piece that folds in the center. I cut four pieces of small paper from  Graphic 45 Transatlantique Collection to make my inside pages, folded in half. Then I used a 1/16" hole punch and punched two holes in each page and the Luggage Tag Seam so I will be able to add my pages when they were decorated.
Here is a closer look at the pages, a couple include tags.
I wanted each to be unique so the artist could decide which page they would like to sign.
I love to fussy cut and these journal pieces that come in the collection were perfect for that and just the right size to be included in my itty bitty mini.
I tried to leave enough room on each page to add a passbook photo of each of the artist from the cruise when I return home.
Don't you love the vintage feel of the paper collection?
More hidden tags and....
Fabulous pockets.
The back page was a perfect place to place the year using stickers from the Transatlantic Alpha Sticker Sheet.
Once all your pages, tags, etc are made thread brown through the holes that were punched and tie into a bow at the Luggage Tag Fold. I love the leather piece I used to clasp my Passport Luggage Mini Album together but you can use ribbon, twine, etc to do the same thing.
Do you notice the small labels on each side of the pages...well they are from Eileen Hull Kitchen Label Die...don't forget it okay to mix those fabulous dies up that Eileen designs so beautifully for Sizzix.
Well, I hope you love my "Passport Luggage Mini Album" and try making yourself one sometime this year.
I hope you play along with us on the Art With Heart Challenge, I can't wait to see what you create. Hugs Pammejo
