Travel Journal

As promised, I've got my travel journal photos to share with you today. I didn't take a photo of the cover because I didn't have time to add a title so these are the inside pages. The front and back covers are from our On Board Book Basics (small) - basically they are just pieces of 5"x 7-1/2" chipboard. The stamps used throughout the album are from the Summer Mini - Sentimental Journey and Tropical Party. I can see using both these sets lots in my album.

The photo above is of the inside cover and I wanted to create a pocket to tuck little mementos inside.

Then I created a cover page for each day. Behind that is a sheet on which I wrote my thoughts etc. So this is the first tab. I love the look of the lattice die when it is applied on the same color cardstock.

For tab 2 - I used the scallop square die. It flips over to reveal the white cardstock with the image of the cruise ship.

Another thing that I wanted was a couple envelopes to tuck any postcards/odds & ends into. The glassine envelopes from the Occasions Mini fit the bill so I used a couple of those.

This is a piece of the Seasonal Pieces window sheets. Another thing that I wanted to do is use a variety of mediums and things that I had on hand.

Page 5 is straightforward - the number 5 is from a retired chipboard pack. The next page has the sand all the way across and then just the three palm trees on the right. That was one of my favorite pages.

The cover for page 6 is just a piece of the island oasis dsp. It flips over to reveal just a solid pumpkin piece of cardstock for journalling.

Page 7 is another piece of the printed window sheets and I wrote the date, our stop for that day and the towel animal and pillow present onto it using a sharpie marker.

Another glassine envelope for page 8. And then I created another tab that said notes and had several different sizes of white cardstock for additional notes or thoughts. It looks much different now that it's written in but I love how it turned out. If you are at any of my upcoming events be sure to ask to see it - I'd be happy to show you.
Thanks for stopping by!
