Page's Challenge

Hello Everyone!

I hope that everyone has started hopping from shop to shop and is finding all sorts of great inspiration!  I'm sure Page's will have you singing "New York, New York" for the next few weeks after you get your picture taken with the Statue of Liberty crown and the fantastic backdrop!

Okay, now let's get onto the Page's Challenge!  I think that it's a totally appropriate and even (gasp) easy challenge... which is... well, take a look at some of our projects and see if you can figure it out for yourself!

Here are 2 single page layouts from... wait for it... Mary Jo!  Yes, I asked Mary Jo and Kathy to participate in this months Design Team Challenge Samples.

I love the titles, I believe that MJ cut them out using the Cricut.  The signs and the RV are great and really add some pop to the pages!

Here's an envelope mini-album that I created after a trip to the beach that I took after a morning of Shop Hopping!

I used  9"x6" Manila envelopes and a few tags, I wanted an option to store journaling or extra pictures in the envelope.  I used mostly paper with some twine (shocker, I know) and buttons.  I really wanted the pictures to stand out and the paper just helped give me the fun feelings that we had that afternoon.

I created 4 pages for the August Page Maps class that happened to coincide with the challenge theme.  I used WeR's Travellite paper line which is super cool and retro and a whole lot of fun. 

Here's one page that I created the fun paper and a luggage tag and a stamp from the collection. 

Here's my double layout that is my favorite - I love the luggage tags, I couldn't use them enough!  I also used Glimmer mist to help give the blue paper a more vintage feel and it turned out exactly how I imagined it would.

Here's a close up of another page with more luggage tags, except I used the luggage tags instead of paper  to keep the flow of the page.  All of these pages have picture of my son's first train trip, which was perfect for the paper line!  But don't feel limited with this paper line, they're all about every type of transportation - planes, trains and automobiles!

So that's out inspiration!   If you haven't figured it out, the theme is travel/vacation! Please create any style of project with a travel/vacation theme and email me a picture of it and any relevant information about your project to me by midnight, August 9th.  We really really really want to see what you, our readers, create so please show us what you can do!  We are so excited about all of our challenges and hope to inspire you to work on your own projects and have a chance to win some goodies from Pages and notoriety!  There's no bad side to the challenges!

Please email Andi with your projects at

Thanks so much!  Hope you all have fun unpacking your supplies and creating!
