With the completion of another trip comes a brand new travel journal filled to the brim with memories and journaling. My latest Eurotrip 2017 travel journal is complete! This was by far the fastest journal I’ve ever completed. Honestly, doing the bulk of the work each day while traveling is just so wonderful. Because I come home every time with a completed book memories. There’s just something so satisfying about having a finished book of your recent trip, whether it’s a scrapbook, mini album or travel journal. It’s just so nice when it’s finished!
So like I mentioned, I filled this book up as I traveled. I left spaces between my journaling and ephemera bits so that when I got home I could add all of my photos into the journal. I managed to do all of that within a few hours (to be honest, it took longer to upload and sort my photos than it did to pick my favorites and print them out). But my photos were printed, trimmed and added to my journals super quickly. I finished up a bit of journaling in the end and bam! Journal complete.
I handmade this journal like I usually do. It originally had two signatures in it, but I found half way through my trip that I wasn’t going to end up filling that second signature out. So, I took the entire book apart, removed the second signature and sewed the one signature back into the center of the book cover. I much prefer the one signature; my journal closes better now and I can always use that spare signature to make a new journal!
I filmed a little flip through of my journal and mention a few things about my geoscrapping process (aka my travel journaling on the go). Hopefully you can learn a few of my tricks from it. Enjoy!
