The Journey...

"Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be…close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar, and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before." - Erich Fromm
I think this quote says it all.  "The Journey" is a chipboard mini album that is perfect for capturing the memories and thoughts from any journey...spiritual milestone journey...soul awakening journey...or simply a refreshing vacation journey, like this example.  Using the Be Amazing Collection from My Mind's Eye, this peaceful color combination puts the focus on your photos and your story.  Plus, you'll save time creating this keepsake because all tracing, cutting and sanding has been eliminated.  The papers for the chipboard pages are punched out for you!  Kit ingredients include:  12 page 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" chipboard landscape mixed up album with 2 silver rings, 24 punched paper pages, total of 10 additional 12x12 papers, 1 - 12x12 chipboard accents sheet (32 pieces), 6 - 4x6 transparency frames, 1 pack of 30 decorative brads and tags, 1 pack of 23 decorative buttons, 1 pack of 3 layered stickers, 1 sheet of canvas alpha stickers (518 pieces), 1 silver metal Nunn Design charm with heart and turquoise stone dangles, 1 black and silver clip, 12" of printed tape, 4 flowers, 2 kraft or transparent tickets, 1 large Bella brad, 24 buttons, 9 naked chipboard accents, 7 punched diecut shapes, 2 fabric strips, 3 - 5x7 fabric mats, 1 - 12x12 naked chipboard sheet, 9 yards of twines, black wire, 9" of metal ringed twill tape, 12" jute twine, 1 yard of seam binding and patterns for pockets.  Machine stitching is used.  However, a similar look can be created by outlining with a rust pen.  Please visit our gallery under Dee Walker Designs to view all images of this kit.  Available for purchase now, with shipping BEGINNING May 7.  Kit price is $69.00.
