I've got too many postcards, ticket tubs, odd labels [beside of thousands un-scrapped photos] from my past travels tucked in rows of shoe boxes!. Guilty. Way behind scrapping these!!.
Recently, I rummaged through these treasures and picked some to use in my latest mini album for Scrappingville, which I dearly called 'Globe Trotter' Diary.
It is a minimalist earthy-colored travel diary. I used pattern papers, corrugated papers and various sizes of envelopes to make the pages. Pages are neatly bound with Zutter 1" coil. Lastly, added some ethnic beads, ribbons and jute-twines to embellish the otherwise plain black chipboard covers.
It has plenty of pockets and folders to keep more little treasures :). My advice, never throw away those pretty labels from your shopping. They make perfect closures!.
I was nicely surprised to find that I kept a funky label from a bottled drink!. Ha!. Makes me smile.
And yes, pocket for coins is a must-have in any travel diaries.
I casually jotted down notes with black/maroon sharpies and white gel pens. After all, this mini album is more like a journal than anything :). Think I'll make more of these before my next travel, something to keep me busy while on transit :).
This would be one of my October's class @ Scrappingville. Please check our website to see timing & details.
