Vacation memory book (2).

I’m back today with the lil’ coaster memory book that I made for my daughter and will give it to her when we get home from our cruise.

032 copy

This was actually the first one I made, so it’s a little more…hmmm….how shall I say, reserved maybe?  I was learning and trying hard when I made this one – the second one was a breeze and a lot more fun.

I covered the coasters front and back with patterned papers from Prima’s Road Trip collection and then I swooshed over the edges with some white acrylic paint.

And then I alternated with glassine bags from my shoppe to house little memories from the trip.

113 copy

I used chipboard pieces from the Road Trip collection as well, and left little spots here and there where she could write down a few words about what she saw and did.

I used Prima pom poms on several pages, and I also added a strip of fun stitching to the glassine bags.  Looks like I’ve got an equal amount of American Crafts chipboard in here too.

More journaling spots and alphabet letters from The Girls’ Paperie – from a Christmas pack by the way 😉

    Love it! We have booked a Disney Cruise for next May (on the Fantasy!) and this would be a great little gift to make for our Exchange Student and her Mom who will be joining us!

    What a wonderful gift for your daughter to help extend the vacation for a little while longer and keep the memories forever. It is definitely a change going from Disney fantasy to the real world.

    Aha – you DID make one for your daughter, too! Just beautiful! Will give your daughter hours of fun creating and later remembering. Will be a beautiful keepsake.
