Northern Road Trip 2022 | The Completed Journal

A humble travelers notebook and journaling/filler cards from In a Creative Bubble have made completion of this year's Northern Road Trip quick and effective. I took the TN with me, but didn't write a single word of journaling while we were away; everything was added once home. I kept things simple and it all came together … Continue reading Northern Road Trip 2022 | The Completed Journal

The Travelers Notebook | Northern Road Trip 2022

Our Northern Road Trip to South Lakeland is fast approaching and I will be recording the days away in a travelers notebook. The finished TN will be very similar in style to last year's journal. All the journaling cards will be from In a Creative Bubble. I have added reminders here and there and trimmed … Continue reading The Travelers Notebook | Northern Road Trip 2022

Road Trip Jersey 2022 | The Completed Journal

And it's finished. Initially I thought there would be a lot of spare pages at the rear of the book, but it seems that I've timed it to perfection and finished recording our trip on the very last page. 🙂 Trimming some of the journal's pages worked out well - they definitely add definition and … Continue reading Road Trip Jersey 2022 | The Completed Journal

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 8x5 inches. The patterned paper is from Bella Blvd's You Are My Sunshine range and the … Continue reading Scrapbooking in 2022 | The Jersey Album

Recording Our Northern Road Trip

I've lost my way a little with my scrapbooking recently, storage space for new albums is almost non-existent and I'm about done with taking a large bag of stash with me when we travel. But that doesn't mean I wasn't up to the job of recording our recent road trip to South Lakeland. Enter the … Continue reading Recording Our Northern Road Trip

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. This first one documents the afternoon and evening The Boy Child and I spent being tourists in London. The second spread documents Cachirulo … Continue reading Scrapping in 2019 #11

The Completed 6×8 Summer Travel Journal

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. Obviously the wedding commands the largest number of pages ... ... but there … Continue reading The Completed 6×8 Summer Travel Journal

The 6×8 Summer Travel Album

Summer travels are afoot and, as with our stay in Guernsey, I'm recording the details of our holiday in a pre-prepped 6x8 album full of pocket pages. I began by printing a selection of journaling cards (purchased from In A Creative Bubble) and mounting them on either blue or yellow cardstock. I varied the pocket … Continue reading The 6×8 Summer Travel Album
