Scrapbook On The Road {Coming Together}

I love getting stuff in the mail. Especially when it's fun stuff like this! I was a little pleasantly surprised that the 7Gypsies book covers were actually black and not that reddish color in the shop pics. Now that I have it though, I'm not sure if I'm going to use it for the cover. Right now I just have two pieces of chipboard as place holders. They work well so I might just decorate them and use them instead.

These are the first few things I added to the book. I have a clear scroll overlay along with a red envelope underneath for ephemera. Under that is a large craft tag that I added some green ribbon to.

I added quite a few of these opaque velum envelopes. They're just a hair too big for the album but I have a feeling by the time this is completed I'll have bits and bobs stuck out all over the place (like the ribbon). So I'm okay with it.

I punched a few pieces of thin cardboard and added them throughout.

I purchased these Martha Stewart chipboard letters on clearance at Wal-mart. Every once in a while you can find some good crafty things there. I added these to the back of the cardboard. I'm still deciding if I'm going to paint over them or not.

I added a small note card. It's got a birdcage in the corner with the word 'fly' above it. Love this.

More various bits of scrap paper and cardstock I had laying around. I even used some packaging, which you can see on the left side. I plan on covering up the print with photos.

Another craft tags and a piece of brown textured cardstock.

More vellum envelopes. I bought some overlays from Michael's {Ill have to check on the brand and I'll take some photos for you} and I stuck one inside of each. They're all different designs and are all super cute.

I won this on eBay the other day. It's a 7Gypsies wire bound envelope book. I tend to collect a lot of crap while traveling and I honestly don't think all of it will fit in the album so this will be used for backup.
