Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a couple of projects that use recycled maps. Maps and atlases are often free and are so much fun to add to paper crafting projects. There is a whole article on this in the Winter 2018/2019 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine – be sure to check out a bunch of other ideas using recycled maps. Maps are particularly well suited to travel layouts – the layout below uses a map of Germany I got from the AMA for the page background. I marked our route using embroidery thread and added a postcard and our entrance ticket to the castle. I always save memorabilia when travelling.
Supplies: Paper House Productions Germany stickers, Simple Stories wood embellishments, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L photo corners and adhesive.
Old maps also make great embellishments! Here’s a card featuring map pinwheels.
Supplies: Stampin Up! patterned paper, ink, cardstock, embossing folder and stamp.
The Stampin Up! paper line is called ‘Best Route’ and the stamp set is called ‘En Route’. It’s a great set to have in your collection.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to pick up a copy of the winter issue of Creative Scrapbooker magazine for more inspiration!
