Obviously, the Pack Your Bags Daily Diary kit is travel-themed. I love that it is because I recently did some day trips with a friend of mine who was visiting from Wisconsin, but all in all, we do not travel much. So this week I wanted to challenge myself to use the kit for a non-travel themed page. Now this would be pretty easy if I stayed away from all the travel cards because there are plenty that don't have anything specifically to do with traveling. But to make it a true challenge, I used the travel-themed cards and embellishments but applied them to a normal week at home.
The "Not all who wander" card worked perfectly for my kids exploring the park. After using my typewriter for almost a year, I think I am FINALLY getting the hang of it. I outlined the wood veneer feather in pencil and then used it as a template for where to type. Then I placed the feather and erased the pencil.
If you haven't been able to tell, I've been addicted to gold lately and this spread could not be complete without a touch of gold. I used this lace tape set from my stash to add little gold touches and to unify the spread. I love the extra texture it adds.
I challenge you to use your kit in unexpected ways and not just for those travel pages. Don't forget to join the Facebook group and share with us what you are making. And time is running out for you to secure your subscriptions for the next term, so hurry up and sign up here.
