My niece is going on an over seas trip soon and I wanted her to record her adventure. So I made her a ladies travel journal using these amazing papers from Megs Garden.
When I made the book I kept in mind that this journal was going to be pulled in and out of luggage so I had to keep a plastic cover on it to protect it.
I used lace on the spine of it and washi tape to bind it together.
The following photos are the pages in the journal ready for my niece to write or attach travel notes.
In between the pages I hung little travel embellishments on the Italian paper clips from Megs Garden.
Using stamps from Megs garden I stamped on the inside front and back cover .
Some times I find it difficult to get what I have thought of. So I make it. The particular album size I wanted had to be made. I bought a A4 two ring book and measured the size I wanted. After drawing on the white plastic I cut it using good scissors as it is strong cardboard.
I cut the third white plastic page in half to made a pocket and using washi tape I bound the three front pages together.
I slide the spine out and decorated it then slid it back in. Again using washi tape to seal the edges.
Using the same method as the front cover I completed the back cover.
To make a title plaque I cut a strip of tin and borrowed the hubbies letter punches.
I framed the plaque on black cardstock.
I was really happy how this journal turned out and with the beautiful papers of Rose Quartz its such a nice ladies project.
Thanks for looking at my journal.
