On the Craft Table...

Finally finished up my Outer Banks Travel Journal :) I am thrilled with how it turned out and am glad to add another journal to our family collection :) I love making these travel journals-- they are so simple to make, with no pressure of making them look just so.

+ To do captions/explanations for some of the pictures: I simply wrote on them with a permanent marker or pen, or stapled a tag on.

+ Extra pictures: I had a TON of pictures printed and knew they wouldn't all fit in the journal. So I put extra pictures (some with captions) in the envelopes already in the book. This makes for a fun surprise when looking back through the book, and all photos are there in the book, just not necessarily displayed.


+ To avoid a lot of "blank backs" of pictures while looking through the journal, I glued (rolling adhesive) two pictures front to back in relevant order and then put them in the journal.

  1. This is lovely! Great trip, great memories and photos. It's an album that won't sit on a shelf... too much fun to page through. Scallop salad? One restaurant advertised it. That's new to me.
