Travel journal by Julie Jacob

It is that time of the year when we get ready to pack for our holidays and what a fab way to record those memories in a travel journal. Make it bespoke to you, your travels and your experiences just like Julie has with the Travel Record. Thank you Julie.

Here are a few notes from Julie...

"My brother and sister in law are left for London recently. I wanted them to have something so they could remember the details of their trip. :)
Here is a little travel journal I did. It's small...4x6, so you can take it along easily on your trip.
For the covers, just cut two pieces of chipboard to 4x6. Cut all inside pages to 4x6 as well. It's a good way to use up scraps of smaller paper.
Just remember that you'll want to write on the make sure it's not too dark or patterned.
I covered the front with atlas paper...added a chipboard embellishment from the Teresa Collins World Traveler collection, and then made a pennant from dictionary paper.
To make the pennant...cut a strip of dictionary paper, add your stamp,
and then use a square punch for a nice crisp end.

I bound it with my Bind it All...but you could use a hole punch as well."

The sun is shining and the holidays are fast approaching…which means that our stamps this month are all about holidays, enjoying the sea and sun, celebrating July 4th and the London 2012 Olympics! We hope that they inspire you to create some fabulous projects.
Let me take a moment to thank, and introduce you to Karin Joan who designed this month’s stamps – thanks so much!
Here is a little bit about Karin…
''My name is Karin Joan, happily married with Freddy and the proud mother of our
4 year old Jeremy. I'm a part time primary school teacher and part time stay-at-home-mom.
Besides that, I'm very busy with the 24Homes foundation, together with my best friend Claire.
I love to design and to be creative in many ways and as much as I can. In that I find inspiration in almost anything: be it window shopping or a friend’s home, you name it!
Although my own style is girly, vintage and shabby chic, I'm not scared of a challenge and to design out of my box :-)
