Happy Sunday and welcome back.
Ahhhh! – Now it’s Summer time and soon time for my annual Summer vacation. Something we treasure highly in my family as everyday can sometimes be a bit harsh due to all our challenges. So this time, once a year, we throw all our cares away, get on a plane and fly down south and this year we’ll be visiting Mallorca – the largest of the Balearic Islands, Spain. We’ve been there before but we do love this island, so we decided to go back.
The only thing I don’t look forward to is 14 days without my crafting……YIKES! Gotta smuggle something with me so I don’t go mad (Ehm….more mad 😀 )
Ok so with this in mind, I decided to make something with a travel theme and my eyes landed on the gorgeous Round Traveling Case from SVGAttic’s JGW Fashionably French kit. I’ve seen many versions of it made the last couple of months and wanted to make my own – and here it is:
I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Chestnut and Coffee along with the delightful Graphic 45 paper “Come Away with Me” collection that seems just right for this project.
I also used some Cricut Faux Leather for the strap, metal colored dots as nail heads and a ball chain to hold the tag and a tiny metal key.
Then I dived into my huge stash of Prima flowers and found some that matched the paper real well along with a rhinestone swirl. Finally I also found some glass cabochons to decorate with.
Such a fun project to make and the suitcase goes together so easy but looks so amazing – don’t you think? Tell me in a comment.
Thanks for stopping by today – I really hope you like my version of the suitcase.
