There has been a substantial delay in updating the handbooks in the Cartridge Library. Before I went to CHA, I photographed my Creative Memories Traveler handbook pages. Several people were interested in seeing more details about the cartridge. It is a very time consuming process to photograph, edit and watermark these photos (unfortunately, too many people have "borrowed" my work when I post a booklet so I need to watermark the images to show the source of the photos). At CHA, I checked to be sure that it was OK for me to post my images and I planned to put them up when I got home from Chicago. I had to reorganize and label the photos and, with little free time in the last few weeks, I wasn't able to finish until yesterday.
The Road Trip Font is a relatively thick font that appears to be hand drawn - it looks like the markers used on signs at many restaurants along the highways.
The Beach Bum font is a simple clear sans serif font with more rounded shapes.
The base images (the images on the keypad overlay) are primarily things you would see on a tropical vacation including several suns & palm trees, exotic flowers, sea life, sunglasses and flip flops, fish and cool drinks. The icon layer includes more general travel images, vehicles, keys, luggage and some famous destinations (pyramids, Big Ben, Eiffel Tower, etc.).
There is a shadow for the base set of images and for the Icon set of images. This is a very full cartridge with almost every key position filled.
Here are my photos of the pages of the booklet:
I will share some projects made with this cartridge another day. There are many possibilities to use these images for more than just travel photos. Some of the shapes and tags near the end of the book are particularly useful.
I think Traveler is a nicely done cartridge and would be a worthwhile addition to your collection if you do not have a lot of travel images available on your other cartridges. The fonts are both quite attractive and suitable for general use (not too "girly" or specific to a holiday or time of year). My favorite Creative Memories cartridges are the first two that were released, Cheerful Seasons and Reminisce Accents. You can find links to my cartridge reviews under the tabs at the top of the blog page. The Stork's Delivery cartridge is another more specialized cartridge that is perfect if you need images for babies and cute fonts for a boy or girl.
All four of these cartridges are available only through a Creative Memories independent consultant. I am a consultant and if you do not have a local person that you work with I would be happy to help you with any questions or orders. You can access the Cricut Page on my Creative Memories personal website by clicking HERE or using the link in the left side column of my blog and browsing to the page (under "shop" - "paper scrapbooking" - "tools").
We had a great family reunion picnic and will be at a reunion with some former co-workers today - then back to the family for some birthday celebrations. It is a busy time of year for us! I hope you have a great day and that the sun is shining (but not too much) wherever you are.
