Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have Part One of my traveler’s journal project to share. In March, my husband and I will be traveling to Spain. I wanted to share what I have done to prepare my travel journal for the journey.
I have been a journal lover in the past, both for writing and drawing. But this will be my first traveler’s journal, and I am very excited about that. For this journey, I chose to start with a journal (cover, notebook, and inserts).
Travel Journal Prep
I used the yellow Self-Laminating Tag for the tag that I added to the cover of my traveler’s journal. Inside the tag, I added yellow cardstock and red vellum to create the look of Spain’s flag. I then painted wood veneer letters black and added them to the tag using Adhesive Dots Micro. I didn’t use the loop to attach my tag to the book but instead used a silk ribbon.
In the back pocket of my insert is where I will keep my Creative Photo Corners Kraft, Creative Photo Corners Black and my Keepsake Envelopes Mix. This way I will be able to easily pull out what I need while I create on the run.
The Keepsake Envelopes Mix will be perfect for adding little bits and pieces of memorabilia.
The final piece to take with me as I travel is my E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser. It’s perfectly petite to add to my travel backpack.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
