I had originally planned our last day of the week with a "Maps As Home Decor" theme, but several team members shared some projects and a tutorial that didn't fit anywhere, so we're going to throw it all in here today so you don't miss any mappy (yes, I just made that word up) goodness.
Without further ado, let's look at some more ways to use maps!
Maps As Home Decor
Paula shared an absolutely wonderful (and simple!) home decor project that I adore:
See that? That's Paula and her husband in map form. Paula covered chipboard people with maps showing where she and her husband are from. (In case you can't read the maps, Paula is from Ireland and her husband is from Boston.) Two chipboard shapes + two maps + a heart sticker + a frame = instant, meaningful, classy, mappy home decor. What could be better?
Map Grab Bag
Let's start this section with a couple of mini-album projects.
First up is a travel mini-album cover that Katie created.
Francine created adventure books as party favors for her son's birthday party. The party theme was based on the movie "Up."
Our last grab bag item is a tutorial that Christine pointed us to. This is something for all you digi folks out there! It's a Photoshop tutorial on how to do map shapes on a digi page, along with a FREE template of the U.S. map!
And Thus Ends Map Week
Thank you to all of you for hanging out with us this week! Be sure to tune in next week when we will have a special Thanksgiving Theme Week put together by the write. click. scrapbook. team!
