I had a major travel bug at the beginning of the summer and it manifested itself in these two new sets: Map It Out & Greetings From. They’re great by themselves, but when used together they can help you create customized maps for so many things: save-the-dates, moving postcards, travel keepsake containers, and just-saying-hello cards, to name a few.

Most of the images fit perfectly on the smallest clear blocks, and are easy to layer and line up. But be careful not to lose any of the little pieces—they are sneaky! (California almost didn’t make it to the photo shoot!) They also coordinate nicely with our circle punches (US/CA)—letting you create easy tags or embellishments for scrapbook pages.

The greetings from the Greetings From Stamp Set fit perfectly around the state abbreviation icons from the Map It Out set. Add a dashed line, an “x” to mark the spot—and other fun details—and you’ve got a perfect postcard to send to friends and family to let them know you’ve moved.

I stole a journal from the Try Me Paper Pumpkin kit, and embellished it with some stamping to make a travel journal. It’s the perfect size to bring on a trip and make notes along the way.
