Our trip to Jersey is looming and I’ve been working on the foundation pages for the journal I’ll use to record the details of our visit.
I’m using a bigger-than-usual travelers notebook – the measurements come in at approximately 8×5 inches. The patterned paper is from Bella Blvd’s You Are My Sunshine range and the journaling cards are from In a Creative Bubble.
The first entry is already written in the journal and records British Airways cancelling our flights and our subsequent booking with Condor Ferries.
I’ve trimmed a few pages to add visual interest; some to house a 4×8 card and some to house a 3×8 card (or two 3×4 cards). I’ve also added a few 6×4 pieces of patterned paper – these will be used as background when I add the photos after the trip.
I’ve also created a pocket and added a tab – I’ll probably use it to store any ephemera collected during our visit.
How do you record a trip? While you’re away or once you’re back?
