September Club Q with Barb!

Hi! It's Barb and I am sharing a project I made with the September Club Q kit! I was one excited person when this box filled with crafty goodness arrived on my doorstep! I immediately fell in love with the yellow, gray, black and white color scheme! Gorgeous!

One of the projects that are included in this kit is a School Year Calendar. It is a beautiful calendar that you can quickly make using one of Quick Quotes Wire Bound Albums (which is in the kit.) I wasn't sure that I would actually use a school year calendar but I did see it as a great opportunity to make a mini album for my year of travel!

Not too long ago, one of my friends made a comment that she never knew which city I would show up in next. That got me thinking about the wonderful year of travel that I have had, so I decided to make a mini album that reflected the year. Normally my mini albums are focused on my family but this one is all about me! I took a photo (or two) for each month that shows something fun that I did that month and used that to make my travel mini.... take a look!

Don't you love mix of papers?!
 
The ribbon I used on my travel mini came in the Club Q kit!
 The vellum travel quote is from the Quick Quotes Travel Bundle.

I made a glitter pocket using another vellum quote from the Quick Quotes Travel Bundle. If you would like to see how I made it, check out the video at the end of the post!

I loved the Monthly labels that were part of this kit and I used them to label each page of the mini album.

 Some of the months I had more to share so I used 2 pages of the album on those months.

 This kit is packed full of die cuts which I used throughout my mini album.

 I printed the photos in black and white because I liked the way they looked with this color scheme.


I was sure to leave plenty of room for the remainder of the year! I have a few more trips coming up and I want to be able to include them in the album! And I have plenty of paper left to complete the album and still do a few more projects!

This glitter pocket was a fun little embellishment to make. If you would like to make one yourself, watch this video for the step by step instructions!
