Road Trip to Normandy | The 6×8 Travel Journal

As with the two other 6x8 travel journals from our travels this year, I created all the foundation pages before we went to Normandy. And just like with those other journals, I used Project Life style cards from In a Creative Bubble. Album spine damaged either at the wholesaler or en route to the stockist. … Continue reading Road Trip to Normandy | The 6×8 Travel Journal

Scrapping in 2019 #11

Over the last few weeks I've enjoyed putting our Summer into albums - some traditional 12x12 pages, a few Project Life pocket pages and a few hybrid pages combining the two options.

As I've said previously, when making travel mini-books my goal is always on the stories, photos, and memorabilia. I don’t experiment with a lot of creative techniques, because I want to highlight the photographs and keep the album fairly simple and clean.

New York City | The Traveler’s Notebook

I'm off on a solo trip shortly to my beloved New York City. A mini book for a sizeable city I've developed a fondness for the mini traveler's notebook, as it's forced me to look at design and sizing differently. The plan for this short trip is one page of journaling and one page of … Continue reading New York City | The Traveler’s Notebook

This year's 100 Day Project is live! This year, I've decided to use the 100 Day Project to finish off the handful of abandoned works in progress I have around the place. Five UFOs to tackle In no particular order, I have the following UFOs: A small album recording each day of London 2012 The … Continue reading 100 Day Project

Summer Holiday | Traveler’s Notebook

Earlier this month, we nipped over to Valencia in Spain to see friends.  Along with supplies for The Boy Child's Summer Scrapbook, I packed a traveler's notebook.  The Boy Child managed to keep on top of his project better then I did, perhaps because mine is more detailed.At the time of drafting this post, I … Continue reading Summer Holiday | Traveler’s Notebook
