The Journey

Hi Everyone, here is a Peep show of The Journey our second suitcase project.  This is the project I created from the Inspiration piece I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  Yes, yet another class project!!!! I created this piece completely from Chipboard.  I used the Tradewinds Stack by DCWV.  Look out for this one on the class schedule.


  1. My dear Kathy,
    This is INSANE! I mean REALLY!! This suitcase looks like something from Neiman Marcus or Nordstrom’s! OMG Pita Girl, you have OUTDONE yourself! I am lucky if I can fold a piece of cardstock in half!
    Do you fully understand how utterly AMAZING you are?
    Thank you for sharing this incredible suitcase project, and remember how much you are loved by all us Pitas.

  12. Hi Kathy,

    I just started watching your videos on youtube & ustream.. You are wonderful and so talented. I wanted to know 2 things. Can you do a video where you show us all of the different tools you have to create these mini’s; such as the crop a dile, and the cinch, cutter, stuff like that. Also could you do a video that incorporates the many different pages that you’ve done into 1 album. Thank you so much for taking your time out to show us all how to do these mini’s. I know I’ve learneda whole lot. I’ve gone from just watching to actually attempting one.

    Thanks again
