Enjoy the Ride Travel Themed Tray

Today I have a fun project to share that I've been working on a little at a time over the past couple weeks. I'd add a few things here and there and play around until I liked it. I finally decided it was done (for now) and adhered everything into place over the weekend.

This piece was created to hang in our vintage camper. (we are still in the middle of renovating...and that's a whole other story!) Anyways...I found this 7 Gypsies Tray at a garage sale, brand new for around $4 everything else I had in my stash. These trays were super popular maybe 8 or so years ago? I remember that Stampin' Up! sold one in black for a little while...I think it was part of a kit. Not sure if you can still find these for sale anymore...other than garage sales that is! lol

Each compartment inside the tray measures 4x6 so that works out perfect if using photos or in my case beautiful DSP. The top 3 compartments I used a half sheet of gorgeous paper by Webster Pages from the Strawberry Fields line. I love the "always take the scenic route" quote...not in love with the die cut butterfly I added...might be swapping that out for more realistic shape.

The scrabble tiles were also a garage sale find...I think they are the perfect touch for this travel themed tray. I made the flower in the bottom corner using the now retired spiral flower die and added a Vintage Brad to the center...I think maybe those were my all time favorite SU! embellishment. They were a little bulky for cards, but I love them for 3D projects like this.

Thanks for visiting!
