We traveled in June to London and I brought along a new blank Midori Travelers' Notebook insert to journal on the go. We've always journaled on each trip, I have many notebooks from many trips. I will then make Project Life pages and Digital Photobooks to record the trips. I talked about all of these in two posts which you can find here:
Since last December, I have fallen for the MTN trend and I loved that the same notebook I used to journal on the trip is going to be my memory keeping minibook! The fun is coming home and adding photos and bits and pieces collected on the trip plus embellishments to make it a fantastic journal of the trip!
I had journaled on the trip intentionally leaving blank spaces here and there where I will be adding photos, brochures, memorabilia, etc.
Once we are home I selected photos (about 3 to 5 photos for each double page spread), depending on the space I had, using the templates I made for our last trip. (get to the templates in this post). They are for printing on A4 size paper. Because I use a kraft paper notebook, the white border for each photo helps to give defition
For the Cover, I kept it simple and to the same theme as my Japan notebook. Just strips of paper and washi with simple wooden alpha stamp that I have had for ages.
I am excited imagining many of these notebooks in the years to come!!
Then I used some of Ali Edwards' digital stamps (Summer passport stamps and Travel Messy circles), recolored them in photoshop, added pattern overlay to get the gold foil effect), printed and cut them out.
And then got going with sticker, glue tape and stapler! Here's the first page
I had kept the first few pages blank, so here's where I wrote highlights of the trip
And added an itinerary
And here's Day 1
Love how the Ali Edwards' digital stamps added color and a pop to the pages. I re-colored the stamps to match the colors on each page.
Also added maps and pieces cut from brochures
The Henry VIII card is our Historic Palaces Membership card
Project life cards can be added too, they are the perfect size :)
We got to see the fly past on Trooping the Colors!
Here are some of the other pages, I filled up the entire notebook, adding tube map and London map at the back too, totally loved this record of my trip!
