April is more than 1/2 gone, can you believe it?!
This has me thinking travel. A lot of local store events, a lot of personal travel, even a trip to Ranger Ink Headquarters in New Jersey are all coming over the next few weeks and months…
all this travel has me thinking about scrapbook supplies like these:
Great lines are plentiful – and what I’m noticing is that travel ‘themed’ lines are really not specific anymore. There is a lot of generic maps, compasses, words and phrases that could be applied to life in general, and very easy to use back-sides of patterned papers.
Heidi Swapp, Studio Calico, and Tim Holtz are definitely topping my shopping list. Other items/brands I’ve found myself picking up for general travel goodness are from Bazzill (Janet Hopkin’s Wayfarer line), Glitz Designs, Basic Grey, and more Amy Tangerine.
I happen to be working on a number of past travel related layouts, and with two all new big on-line classes coming up soon, not to mention the upcoming travels, well I can justify (self-enable) stocking up.
I wonder – when you scrapbook your travels do you ever buy stuff ahead as I am? Do you wait until after? A combination?
Since I often use non-travel product on my travel layouts, and I try to purchase only travel related stuff I know I can use for multiple projects, I do a little of both.
Do you have a favorite travel line right now? Tips for scrapbooking on the road? I’d love to hear. I have two upcoming trips I believe I’ll be taking a small crafting kit on… I’m in brainstorm mode on that…
Enabler note: Studio Calico has their abroad line for sale here in their shop. There’s lots of goodies including USA states die cuts, garlands, and more.
