Today I wanted to share with you my OBSESSION with Maps. Yes, maps.
As you know I like to travel and we've been a lot of places, but I've loved maps all my life. I'm not sure if I've shared about my Pinterest page on all things maps?? I can't believe I haven't before... but if you want to see some darn cute ideas using maps, you should check out my "Map Love" board.
Here's some of the cute ideas I've pinned on there:
This is just a small sampling of the map ideas on my board, so go check it out when you have a minute.
I've been playing around with making my own designs with maps and one will be in the Scrap 365 soon, so I can't share it yet. But here's just a quick thing I decided to make with some maps:
This is an easy thing to do and a fun idea for your old maps since everyone's in the whole Instagram craze these days. These are perfect for putting on a layout or in an album as a frame around a your 3x3 or 2x2 Instagram photos.
Here's one I used in my Smash Book recently:
It's a simple page, but I love the map on it. I also LOVE Smash books because the papers are so cool and ecletic. Here's a look at this page and the one next to it:
Love the subway page and the little luggage pocket page that comes after the page with the insta-frame.
Here's another thing I played around with and made with an old map:
I made an envelope! For this map envelope I just took an envelope template and traced in onto a map and then cut it out. I wanted to be able to open it back up again so I simply used washi tape to close it for now. I think it's a cool map idea and easy to slip into a Smash book or any album or layout about a trip you took. So don't forget to SAVE those maps from your travels!
Lastly, here's a cute little project I just made and posted on the Maya Road blog last week with a map from Italy:
I wanted to remember our travels to Italy this summer and even saved a little sand from the lake for this project... You can see how I made it if you check out the Maya Road Design Team blog here. This is an easy project you can do as a little memento from your travels this summer!
Who knows what I'll make next with a map... :)
Hugs to all,
