    As I'm going on a lastminute trip to Tenerife, I had to quickly make myself a Road Book to document my holidays... So here's how I made this very simple one:
  • I first cut two rectangles (about 6 x 8,5 '') in a heavy cardstock for the covers...

  • I painted the borders with light green acrylic paint from Kaisercraft, than I decorated them with beautiful SEI papers that I stitched together and some Basic Grey die cuts.
    The title is made with American Crafts Thickers.

  • I love the SEI papers, with their glitter dimension:

  • The inner covers are also covered with cute papers.
    I didn't add any decoration in the inside, because I didn't want the book to be too thick, and as I'll be carrying it with me, I'd rather not have embellies not adhering.

  • For the insides pages I decided to separate the journal pages,

    the cards,

    and the guide (suggestions)...

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my project! 

Have a lovely day,
