Grapevine Designs by Paper Vineyard

Hello all,

This week, Paper Vineyard is having a friendly competition using their new "Grapevine Designs" Custom Albums. I used their "Plain Jane - Man and Woman" album this week. These albums are AWESOME (they have a bunch of them that they keep in stock all the time) AND you can order custom albums cut just for you!! More info about the competition is listed below.

Anyway, here is my album. When I saw the Man and Woman (the universal symbols), I knew I had to do some kind of travel album. All the supplies I used were from my "stash" of papers and embellishments. The pictures are all ones that I have taken during my travels over the years. I printed them out in sepia tone and inked the edges to make them look older. I did the same thing on the other items that I included on the pages. I added a few charms from my stash of jewelry making supplies to finish the cover.

Here is more about the competition Paper Vineyard is having for the Design Team. All the Custom Albums that we have made will be on display starting on Wednesday, August 31st at the store. If you live in the Phoenix metro area, please stop by the store in Chandler (Alma School between Ray Rd and Chandler Blvd) and vote for my book. The voting can only be done in person at the store. Update: Voting will be open for a whole month so you have until September 30th to stop in and vote......for me I hope!!! The Design Team winner will win a goodie bag AND ...... wait for it ...... one of the customer ballots will be randomly be chosen to win a goodie bag too! See, there is something in it for you!!

Thanks for looking and I hope you get a chance to come into the store to vote. Let me know what you think. I look forward to your comments!


  1. Super project! Great details on this! Are you as ready as I am for this weather to change already??

  2. Finally got to see it in person. Pictures don't do it justice. It is the perfect "mini" book. The cover paper is to die for and I love the red biniding with it. It's a winner!

  3. I love this album! My favorite thing? The people cut out of the map! So fun...makes me wish I was traveling tomorrow!

  4. I am with Mindy. Those map people are so flippin cute. I love the color pallete of the entire book, it is fantastic.
