What I'm Working on Wednesday

So during Canada Day weekend we took an 8 hour drive out to the Humber Valley Resort with a friend of ours. Best part of the 8 hour drive-M sat in the front with our friendly driver & I sat in the back and scrapbooked.

Yep, you read that right. I scrapbooked. I packed a little kit before leaving with a few key elements and thought I would share my packing strategy and show you what I worked on.

So here's my little case-filled with some stamps and a glass block, some washi tape, a few bottles of mist, some little embellishments, the usual tools like scissors, ink pads tape and dots, a little punch. I also brought along my bag of scraps.


 You can see the little album that I worked on sitting on my knee to the right. I knew my 'workspace' would be limited so I brought along something small to work on. I ended up taking out most of the supplies and laying them on the car seat beside me-


Of course, it got much messier than that-and I used the clear bin as my 'workspace'.And I was very productive too. Have you ever worked on something in the car or on a place or train?! How did you pack?! I'd def do it again.

This album still isn't finished- it's an ongoing project but here's what I managed to do in a few hours on the trip...

You'll notice that it's simple with lots of repeating elements. I've been using a lot of the same embellishments and letters to keep it simple and cohesive even though I'm working on it over a period of time. Lots of little pics and stories of Eugene's adventures in his puppy days.

What are you working on? What's on your table right now?!



  1. what a great idea - you are a genius!

  2. Great Mini! The repetition/cohesiveness really shows. What a fun (funny?) place to scrapbook :)

  3. I've never had it together enough to scrap on the road but I love the idea. And in the car?! Girl, your'e a rockstar! haha! On my next trip I'm going to try this, if not on the actual road, at least in our hotel or outside. TFS!

  4. I love the fact that you scrapped in the car... hehe The album is looking fabulous... thanks for sharing...

  5. Your album looks awesome! Can't believe you scrapped in a car - good job :) I think that's too difficult for me, haha.

  6. Wow! I admire you for doing this...great way to pass the long drive. I wish I could do that too but I would be soooo carsick! I can't even read a text on my phone in a moving car and I get nauseous!

  7. Super cute. I scrapbooked my December Daily in the car before. Not easy, but do-able! Is that an Amy Tangerine album?

    1. Yep. Amy Tangerine album from her last line. Love it! So much room for 'stuff' and stories!
