October Afternoon Travel Girl Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Afternoon Travel Girl blog hop! 



You should have arrived here from Vivian. If you didn't, jump over to the October Afternoon blog and start from the beginning.

We are having this blog hop to share our love for October Afternoon's beautiful Travel Girl collection. This collection is amazing! Colors are beyond lovely and all the little elements make it so fun to play with! It is perfect for all summer vacations we have in front of us, but it works just as well for everyday scrapping. Just check out this layout I made about something as ordinary as coffee :-)

I hope that you are having fun hopping and that you feel inspired! I have made this cute little card for you:


I cut this car with my Cameo and assembled it using papers Mix Tape, Postcard and Camera Bag. Cute little brads just had to be car's spotlights and the registration plate is made using a stamp from the See The World pack. When the car was finished, I attached it to a piece of gorgeous Passport paper using 3d-dots.


I cut the clouds and made them look like smoke behind the car. Before cutting them, I sketched them using Silhouette sketch pens. Phrase "Bon Voyage!" is written using Jeana Sketch font. And what would a card be without some cute OA stickers? :-) 


If you like the Designer Brads I have used on my card (and who doesn't???), leave a comment to this post by Tuesday, June 18th. I will draw one lucky person who will get a pack of brads. All the winners from this blog hop will be announced on Wednesday, June 19th.



After you have left comment here, be sure to continue hopping. There are prizes to win at every stop along the way! Your next stop from here is my sweet friend Danni. Jump over to her and be ready to get inspired! 

Alex (you are here!)

Thanks for stopping by!
