Travel Tales Suitcase and Mini Album

Have you traveled to exotic lands, gone on a special vacation, or just returned from your honeymoon and need an extraordinary place to showoff all those photos, well check out this suitcase and mini scrapbook album that Jeannene made that is pretty enough to display in your home or office. And it's all paper! This Kathy Orta design has so many photo and journalling opportunities your entire trip can be displayed in style.

The suitcase and album have been created using the Kay & Company Cut & Paste paperline featuring pastel and bold pinks and yellows. Crafted out chipboard, this suitcase has all the details of a real suitcase, including straps with metal buckles and a hinged closure. The outside of the suitcase is covered in a vintage dot pattern and highlighted with a beautiful butterfly motif.

This is a front view of the suitcase.

Silver butterfly charms with pink crystals accent the front of the suitcase.

The pocket on the front of the suitcase includes a pullout wallet. The opening is secured with a Velcro closure and accented with a metal button.

This is the inside of the wallet which features pockets for additional photos, journalling or space for keepsakes such as ticket stubs, maps or brochures.

This is a side view of the suitcase.

This photo shows the suitcase laying flat. Although the handle and straps (which have been inked to resemble leather) are made of paper, the paper is heavy Kraft paper that has been lined with Tyvek for extra strength and durability.

This is the suitcase in the open position.

The lid of the suitcase features an extra large pocket with a Velco strap perfect for holding your larger keepsakes or 8x10 photos, and the strap holds everything in place. Included in the pocket is a "passport" with a decorative brad for added interest.

This is the inside of the "passport".

As an added surprise, just open the Velcro strap and fold down the pocket to reveal another pocket in back for additional storage. The lid of the suitcase is lined with a complimentary travel motif paper.

The inside of the bottom of the suitcase is also lined with a travel motif paper that matches the lid. Pink ribbon and a metal clasp create the suitcase's interior fastener.

This photo shows the bottom of the suitcase with the mini album in place.

The front of the mini album is covered with complementary butterfly and vintage dot paper and is accented with metal brads, charms, raised metal buttons and contrasting jute on the album's closure.

The side of the album is bound using pink ribbon. Here you can see that each page of the album is connected with a 1/4" gusset to allow room for your photos, keepsakes and journalling tags.

This is the back of the album.

The album opens with a gate fold.

The inside pages of the album open in all directions and include many pockets and pullout photo frames and journalling tags in a variety of sizes. Check out the inside pages below.

Once all the pages are opened, the inside of the back of the album is large enough to hold an 8x10 photo.

This suitcase and mini photo album couldn't be more perfect for displaying and preserving photos and memories of a special trip.
