Journey Around the World

A few short months ago I connected with a wonderful Yahoo group called All Things Tim.  I quickly joined into one of the first swaps I could, called Journey Around the World.  We were instructed to create fifteen six by six pages inspired by where we live, which would be swapped out with other participants around the world.  The pages were returned to us for binding and to create a cover. You can read about the pages I made here

I punched my holes with my new Cinch.  I love this crafty tool.  It was super easy to use and I had my pages and cover bound in no time with the help of some book binding rings. This book is really chunky.  Therefore I made a clasp from a hitching post, some ball chain and an eyelet.  It works very well.   


Inside I added a little flip up where I wrote in the swap participant information.  I used Tim's license plate paper and added a clever title of "pit stops."  Here are photos of the pages I received in this lovely swap.  I am so glad I participated and have such a great book to show for.

I ended up with an extra page of mine.  I received two back, as I requested a specific one of mine that had a piece of vintage map from my hometown.  If one of my fellow ATT members, who did not receive a page of mine, and I don't have theirs (pictured above) wants to, I am game for a one on one swap for a page.  Send me an email and we can work it out.




  1. very KEWL! Great work from everyone!

  2. Excellent! Love to see what everyone came up with. :)

  3. Love the way you did your cover. I also love the page you did. Too bad you already have my page or I would swap with you. Awesome job!

  4. Great book of fabulous pages: You've done a great job of putting it all together.

  5. That is fabulous and I wish I had known about it! Need to find out what a cinch is...looks like I need one.
