DIY Thanksgiving Traveler’s Notebook Part 2

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today. I’m sharing a look inside my complete DIY Thanksgiving Traveler’s Notebook. This is my first album documenting my Thanksgiving holiday and the notebook approach was a quick and fun way to record my memories.

I shared my DIY Thanksgiving Traveler’s Notebook Tutorial last month, so please start there if you missed it. I show you how to create the notebook.

A Look Inside a Thanksgiving Traveler’s Notebook Insert

Give Thanks Travelers Notebook Insert with Family Photo Cover Page

I embellished the cover page of my insert with a journaling card, a die-cut label, and a family photo. I used the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to secure the photos and cards to this album. The Thin 3D Foam Squares were the perfect size to adhere, and slightly raise, die-cuts for added dimension in a size-restricted book.

Sequin Shaker Pocket Made with Keepsake Envelopes

I added several different sizes of Keepsake Envelopes between the notebook pages. Two of the same sized Keepsake Envelopes can be stuck back to back to create pocket pages. I placed a chipboard sticker inside the front facing Keepsake Envelope (top photo). Then, I filled the rear facing envelope with sequins (bottom photo). To ensure that the sequins stayed in place, I sealed the envelope with Extreme Double-Sided Tape.

Flip Cards Travelers Notebook Insert with Keepsake Envelope Flaps

Use the flaps from the keepsake envelopes shown above to create a 2-sided flip card. I left the flap exposed (top photo) as a reference. I used the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to secure the cards to the flaps. For a seamless design (bottom photo), sandwich the envelope flaps between the cards.

Give Thanks Menu 2-Sided Keepsake Envelope Flip Page for Travelers Notebook

I created a 2-sided card to slip inside a second, larger, Keepsake Envelope. I sealed the card inside the envelope with a strip of patterned paper and the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.
