I have been waiting and waiting to do this class. It’s been percolating for months now. If you didn’t already know this about me….
i love to travel.
And last fall when my hubby and I decided to get out of town for the upcoming winter, I thought that making a travel journal was going to be so cool to do ‘on the road’. But it’s funny how desires change. I think all the traveling we did from September to December completely burned us out and we had no desire to go anymore. Which was a good thing because of all the crazy bad weather the south had. So we chose wisely. ;) But that’s still something I want to do–and take my little Epson Charm printer with me too!
Because of my love for travel, I have done my share of travel journals, including one for Creating Keepsakes’ KOTM. I love the interactiveness that a travel journal can have. But I also love simplicity and capturing my memories quickly. However, with all the products available out there, it isn’t always easy to get the color scheme or the size or the words that you need.
That’s where this class can help you out!
Here’s a bit of the Description:
Our proverbial suitcase is practically busting at the seams–over the weight limit for sure. I had to sit on it to get everything to fit and zipped up. But, boy oh boy, we are going to some great places in our little design world!
This class is all about using Silhouette Studio to make elements that can be used for trips from sea to shining sea. We’re talking paper, tags, shapes, special effects, maximizing your art, and everything in between. Expanding your Silhouette skills making specific elements is a must as well. And even if you don’t have an occasion to use ‘that palm tree’ in your vacation memories, the skills you use to create a shape like that can be used for many other designs to come. And I love me some interactive goodies too.
One Size Does Not Fit All
The beauty of this class is that it is adaptable to whatever size or format you’re needing. Take the interactive elements and use them on a page or use them as a page. Decorative elements can be added as dimension to a 3×4 card–or as a graphic element on the card itself that we make in class. You get to choose your color scheme, your sizes, your style…whatever you need to make the album fit you. Of course you can follow along and make your album like mine–with different photos, of course. ;) My album is 6×8 and consists of cardstock pages, photo pages, interactive elements and pocket page protectors. There will be predefined color schemes to help get you started as well.
In addition I will be sharing so many tips and tricks and my own personal–and usually very guarded–collection of titles to help you record your travel memories quickly and efficiently. There will also be a bonus lesson to show how I create handwritten titles and accents to use in Studio. Chances are you may have a similar setup so you can do the same.
Go. Go. Go.
My particular album focuses on all the many places I traveled last year, so we’ll be covering themes that can apply to trips you may have taken or will be taking–like the amusement park, the beach, the great outdoors, the big city, and who knows where else. You’ll come away with so many ideas, you’ll be sitting on your own proverbial suitcase to get it all in.
This class is jam-packed with a variety goodness.
Oh, and let us not forget the usual freebies that always accompany a KBS class (a $10 value).

Yep. Good stuff! I’m so excited about this class!
Please note: Due to the release of the brand new Silhouette Studio version 3, that’s what I will be recording with. Hopefully within the next few weeks bugs will be worked out–and hopefully I won’t get too much grief either. ;) At this point, I’m not sure what may be differ during the design process, so if you’re using the older version of the software, there may be discrepancies.
