Happy Tuesday!!! 
It is "ANYTHING GOES" with Eileen's Inspiration Team this month. 
I am sure you will be delighted to see how the team has combined her dies to create some fun and fabulous projects!!!

In a month I am heading out on a 5 week vacation to finish my 50 state bucket list of being in all the states.
 I thought I needed  a Travel Journal to carry along with me in the truck to take notes and jot down things that we see and do after all we are estimating a 6000 mile trip. 
I know I wont' be able to remember everything, lol.

To begin the Travel Journal Storage Box; die cut Card Box, Planner Storage and Organizer.
Create a mist with Clearsnap Colorbox Blends Inks by carefully removing tips; drop a few drops of ink into tiny misting bottles and fill with water. 
Spray the Card Box, Planner Storage and Organizer with prepared mist; dry. 
Stamp background images with Clearsnap Colorbox Blends Ebony Blend. 
Ink edges with Clearsnap Colorbox Blends Nutmeg Blend. 
Form Box. 

Adhere pattern paper to outside of the Card Box, Planner Storage and Organizer using DCWV Vintage Memories Paper Pad.

Ink pattern paper from the DCWV Vintage Memories Paper Pad using Clearsnap Colorbox Blends. 
Die cut flower pieces from Bookmark, Tag & Pocket Die.

Layer flowers together. Carefully cut flowers to center. 
Use stylus, tweezers and flower mat to form flowers. 
Adhere pieces together. Add metal brad to center.

Add flowers to top of prepared box. 

 Add to front of box. 

Add twine and ribbon bow along with the planner embellishments. 

Cut 3 cards to measure 5" x 6 1/2", 4 1/2" x 6" and 4" x 5 1/2", layer together. 
Punch a small hole at the top and the bottom of stacked cards on crease line. 

Decorate each of the cards with layers of DCWV Vintage Memories Paper Pad inked with Clearsnap Clearsnap Colorbox Blends Nutmeg Ink. 
Add die cuts from the supply list to decorate each of the pages. 

Add metal gemstones to pages!

Create extra pages with scored and folded paper added under the DCWV Vintage Memories Paper Pad
Decorate the pages also. 

Tie pages closed with twine. 

Add hidden tags under mats by only placing adhesive on 3 sides of mats. 

Add Journaling Words to pages. 

When pages are decorated; tie together with twine. 

I hope you are inspired to create a few Travel Journal Storage Boxes! 
They will hold all types of Journals, Notepads, Photos, it is just an all around organizer that you will love!!! 
Enjoy Pam
