Scrapbooking in 2022 | The Jersey Album

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?

  1. It will take a ‘little’ bit longer to go by sea 😉 but it will all add to the adventure. Plus you have the flexibility of taking your car as well which will save on car hire once you are there! How lovely to have something nice to look forward to in the next few weeks but how rotten of BA to put a spanner in the works. They are betting a bit of a reputation for bad service at the moment.

    1. We were fortunate that there was an alternative route to the Channel Islands. I’m not sure how much we’ll use our car once there – we tend to enjoy using the local public transport or walking.


  2. Sometimes Plan B works out to be the better option. Your prep work on recording the adventure is putting your skills as a documenter to good start.
