DIY Travel Journal

by Lynn Lilly, Jun 06 2019

My favorite paper crafts always incorporate photos. Ever since I became a mom I have been obsessed with creating unique and easy ways to save our family photos. Growing up I loved scrapbooking but I also had a lot more free time. Now doing a 12x12 scrapbook layout is super intimidating because of the time.  Recently I have been doing travel journals and mini scrapbooks because you can create the perfect little memories quickly. This travel journal is one of my favorites because in addition to designing the layouts I also created the actual book and it was so easy! The key ingredient to making it fast and easy is the right adhesive. My go-to adhesive is Beacon Adhesives and for this project, I used Fabri-Tac on the faux leather and Zip Dry on the photos and pages because it is the best paper glue! Watch the video tutorial below and keep scrolling to see a close up of the page layouts.
