Welcome to the Road Trip USA Blog Hop
Today’s hop is all about traveling this great country of ours and all the crafty projects are inspired by that travel theme. We’ve got a bit of everything for you today, so be sure to stop by each blog and leave a little love in the form of a comment. One comment will be chosen from all those left on the hop by June 30th for a Stampin’ Up prize pack and the winner will be announced on next month’s hop. So let’s get on the road, shall we?
If you arrived here from my blogging buddy Alicia, you’re in the right place. If you’re starting here first, you might want to start the hop at the beginning so you don’t miss anything and comment on each blog to be entered for the Stampin’ Up prize pack. However you arrived, I’m so happy you’re visiting.
If you’re not in a hurry to reach your destination, traveling by train is a great way to go. Someone else does the driving for you while you sit back and relax…and the seating is far more spacious than in airplanes these days. I made this card with components from the All Aboard Train Trio from My Scrap Chick, but the inspiration came from my blogging friend, Kelly, whose cards are among the best I’ve ever seen.
But if you need to get where you’re going quickly, then an airplane is what you want. Here we have an airplane spinner…looks like this plane is in for a rough flight! This card was made using a Snapdragon Snippets design purchased through the Silhouette store. Of course, I had to make changes to it because I just can’t seem to leave anything well enough alone.
Of course, you can take to the air in a more leisurely fashion via a hot air balloon if you’ve a mind to. Having been in a hot air balloon once and experienced a hard landing, I wouldn’t use this mode of transportation again…ever! I created this 5″ x 7″ shadow box card and made the personalized greeting by using the text to path option in Silhouette. If you would like to see a tutorial on how to text to path, just let me know in the comments section.
If you’ve a mind to travel with or even IN your own accommodations, then an RV would be for you. Here’s one all gassed up and ready to go. I made this card by combining components from two separate cut files by Lori Whitlock and Samantha Walker, purchased in the Silhouette Store. I made this a birthday card and love the humorous greeting and sentiment. Click on the card if you want to see it.
If I wasn’t too old, too practical and too much of a “what if” kinda gal, I’d love to travel the country on the back of a motorcycle. Seems like such a carefree way to travel.
Well, that’s all I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed the projects I shared. If you want to see additional pictures of each card, just click on the image and it will take you to the gallery and if you want to know more about any of the cards than I’ve shared here, just let me know in comments or via e-mail. Next up on this road trip is the talented Connie.
