Travel Journal


I have found I really like making journals out of old Readers Digest books.  This one's spine was cracked so I had to cut it apart and add rings.


I wanted to make a journal for some foreign relatives visiting Washington DC with us a few weeks ago.


My mom had found these long lost French relatives a while back.  I thought the "French Country" paper collection would be perfect.


The pattern design dictates what kind of page it will be...folded or a made into a pocket.


Places to write and add a picture, receipt or ticket stub attached with washi tape.




Hidden places to write


I did add in another collection of papers to mix it up a little.


I used some of the pages from the Readers Digest book as a base for a pocket page with a little flap.



Chicken Wire Embossing Folder pattern on the pocket
 












A little ribbon accent.




I added some plain pages for sketching.
 


I really had fun making this journal and the relatives appreciated receiving it.
