Hi Everyone! Well I'm back this weekend as promised to show you how I finished the inside of my Travel Journal. For those of you who just tuned in, here's a link to the tutorial here that I created last weekend as well as a view of my cover below-
Follow along and I'll share how I finished the inside. First of all my notepad was originally a Class Assignment Schedule notepad, so there are dates I wanted to reuse but I wanted to cover up the word 'Assignment' at the top of each page. Second, these note pages are very light weight and I didn't want to have ink leaking through to the other side, so before stamping I took my ATG tape runner, and adhered 3-4 pages together still leaving m 10-12 days for journaling my trip!
With my pages prepped, I went ahead and started stamping. For the global image below, I first masked off at the line to only stamp in the upper margin as you see below.
Taking the plane and it's jet stream, I used them to travel across both pages as in the picture below.
But wait I'm not quite done yet, what's a travel journal without pictures! So I created a booklet, and a pocket to hold it and placed in the inside back cover.
Scored from each end at 1/2", 3/4", 1" - giving you a pocket depth of 1/4"
Place 1/2" wide Score-Tape to the 1/2" in on the areas just scored.
For the bottom, adhere a thick dimensional tape to the adhere and complete the bottom
With my scissors I cut from at the 4 1/4" fold up to where center at 5 1/2". Repeat that on the other pc. Now overlap the ends that have the slit and adhere one corner 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 section to the other.
Fold and manipulate back and forth forming pages so it looks like the picture below:
I adhered other open areas together to create one page - and continued to accordian fold it into itself like you see in this picture.
That's it- thanks for stopping by,
