more traveler's journal collection


Welcome to day 2 of the Papertrey Ink July release countdown. Today I have some more to share with my new Traveler's Journal collection.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on July 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.


One of the things I am most excited about with this collection are these great little notebook/journals. This makes memory keeping and journaling super simple and portable. You can build your book to suit your project (journaling, scrapbooking, planning, etc.) and put several books together in a collection. I will explain all of this in a lot more detail in the days to come in the countdown.

This is the cover of a notebook that I am putting together with some photos and memories from a trip to Maine that I took with my husband in August 2015. All of the little pieces on the cover are die cut and/or stamped with stamps, dies, and papers from the Traveler's Journal collection.


Here's a look at the first pages as you open the book. On the inside cover is a square envelope that secures shut with an eyelet/circle closure. This envelope die is one that is a part of the Traveler's Journal collection. It is perfect to tuck into your notebook to keep things like tickets, stickers, small photos, or even some journaling that you might want to tuck away from your adventures.


On the opposite page, I used the frame die to create an introduction to my book. I typed up a main title and then added some other notes with words and sentiments from the Traveler's Journal stamp sets. The Maine die cut is one that is available now as part of the United States die collection.


Turning the page gets you to the beginning of our trip. I included a photo of Chad and I and some journaling on the opposite page. I made sure that this little book would be a great size for Instagram sized photos (4" x 4") You can print Instagram photos at so many different photo printers these days. If you don't use Instagram, an easy thing to do is to take a 4" x 6" photo and just trim it down to the 4" x 4" size for the book.


You can keep things as simple as you want to in your journal. I typed up my journaling, but there is no reason that you can't hand write, print it from your computer, or even stamp out your journaling. It is completely up to you! You could even bring some supplies and assemble your pages as you go along with this easy notebook style of scrapbooking.

I will have much more to share in the coming days of the countdown and sure hope you are enjoying the peeks of what I have shared so far.

You can see more new products being debuted today for the July release over at Nichole's blog. From there you can link up to other members of the design team who have new things to share with you today too!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I will be back very soon with more to share!
