Kids Travel Journal

For those of you who may not know, we are actually in the Caribbean right now - thank you Stampin' Up! Have I mentioned I love my job?! Well actually we aren't there right now because I'm typing this on Friday night - we leave very early in the morning. But since you are reading this almost a week later - I guess we are.

Anyway, one of the things that both kids were assigned as homework while away is to write a journal. So I decided at the last minute that they needed a little travel journal. I had to give myself a time limit, otherwise I would just spend WAY to much time and really go overboard. So I alloted 1 hour to complete two journals. BTW - I spent WAY more time on mine - which I will show you when I get back.

This is what I came up with - and really the dsp does all the work. This is some of the new Travel Journal dsp that is in the Summer Mini - available May 1st. I cut it to 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and folded in half. I did the same with all the inside pages, but used coordinating cardstock instead of the dsp. I decided to add an envelope at the back so that they could add some little keepsakes. Then I bound it using my Zutter machine.
I kept the inside super simple - if only I had more time... To decorate the pages I used the coordinating stamp set Sentimental Journey - available May 1st.

Here's another one of the pages. The rest are all pretty much the same. I'm sure they will have lots of fun things to add to the pages! Anyway it is way too late and I need to finish packing so until next time!
