My Personal Traveler's Notebook!

I will admit that I am seriously addicted to making these fun notebooks!  The one I'm sharing today is  special though, as I've made it for my own use on an upcoming vacation.

I recorded a video walk through of the entire journal so that you can see all the pages, tucks and tags.

I used Eileen Hull's Travel Journal die by Sizzix to cut the covers.    I love the size of this at 4.5" x 8.5".  In addition to papers from Authentique's Explore collection and a 6" x 6" pad of Authentique's Pastime, I used a lot of scraps from my scrap bin to make pockets, tucks, and tags.

 It has 3 signatures held in place with elastic bands.  Using elastic bands to hold your pages is a real time saver when making this style of notebook or mini as you do not have to individually construct and adhere each page.  I love that I can take a piece of paper, score, fold and then place it in my book!
 Usually I either sew or staple the pages in my signatures but sometimes I do not.  That allows me to easily add and subtract pages.


  1. This journal is beautiful! I love all the original pockets and folders you added. Great job!!
