destination travel journal

Using this cute journal to document our trip to Hawaii in 2008 where we got married. I made these tags for the journal with a cute trailer stamp by Corrabelle on Etsy. If you don't want to use this as your front page, just simply switch up another page and use the mini handstamped tag with the map on it.

Actual front cover is Hambly heavy overlay. Make sure you peel off the 2 protective layers to reveal the clear acrylic.

On the right side is a double sided grid tag with a sewn punched out airplan. You can journal on it or add a photo.

More faux instax photos:). Right page is made of a page from a vintage postage stamp book and white cardstock sewn together. Use the fun washi tape sample strips to make it look like it's holding down your photos (I would still use adhesive to adhere photos to make sure it doesn't fall off - I use my washi tape for decorative purposes only).

Add momento directly to your journal by trimming it to size if needed and punching holes in them.

Add photo onto your momento pieces if there's room such as page on left.

A badge holder on right for you to add a mini photo or paper with your journaling.

Collect business cards of places you've visited and trim out the logo to use as embellishment on your page.

Another handmade glassine pocket on right. The vintage stamp book that I mentioned earlier actually housed a whole bunch of vintage stamps that I discovered as I was tearing out pages for sewing. Super happy about it so added them to the glassine pockets :).

On right side is a printout of a digital vintage image of a ship that I got from Etsy (with permission for resale).

Include receipts of significance.

This is it for now. Because I have to take care of your orders first. Then I'll get to work on this baby some more. Will post more when it's complete.

Have a journal made for up-coming trip. I had forgotten about shooting room. Think we will be in new room each night. LOL It is a history tour of Civil War sites and Indian information. Certainly will be following your journal.
