Road Book and Giveaway

by Polinka


Road Book

One of the many things I like about traveling is that I get to make a Road Book/ Travel Journal :)
I can't go for a trip without one! And I love writing everything we do, the places we go, the people we meet, etc... It's so much easier to remember everything when I come back and start my scrapbooking album!!

Here is a little tutorial on how I made this one!

Instructions

  • Cut 2 pieces of thick cardstock (for the covers): approx. 6 x 4 inches. Or simply use the Bind-it-all covers that are ready to use.
  • Ink their borders with blue ink or blue paint.
  • Cut 4 pieces of patterned papers for the front and back covers and the 2 insides covers. (same dimensions as above)
  • Decorate the covers and then stick them on the cardstock pieces.



  • Prepare all the elements for the road book: a few pages to write down our adventures, envelopes and clear page protectors for keepsakes, tabs and labels for decoration.




  • Once you have decided how you want the pages to be, just use the Bind-it-all tool to bind your Road Book.

  • You are ready to go travel and write down everything you do. It will be so much easier to create your vacation album when you come back!

  2. I love the Ranger products a lot although I have bought in the past a lot of her large sheets of papers. The Road Book is really great.

  3. Love your book, I definatly need to use one of these for our next vacation!
    My favorite product, hmmmmmm, I think what I have mostly bought is papers. What brought me to Frantic Stamper in the first place was that I was looking for some "velvet" paper and Fran had it and at a very reasonable price too.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win.
