How I am organizing my travel pages in 2015....


As I mentioned in yesterday's post, the layouts/albums accumulation is growing at an alarming rate and I'm taking steps to curtail its growth...*winks*


This year, my travel pages will be in Midori traveler's notebooks. I love the flexibility of these notebooks - they can be brought along with you on your travels in a leather holder or stored at home in a kraft binder. There are lots of people selling what they term as "faux-doris" online which give you much more colour and material options than the standard black or brown leather offered by the Midori company.


You can purchase the refills which include diary versions so that you can use them as a planner. There are also tutorials online that teach you how to make those notebooks yourself which are much more economical.


I love the quality of the papers in the notebook. There are thin but there's no bleed-through when I write on them. I'm not big on paper curling so I have not tried any wet media on the pages. I did use some Faber Castell gelatos on them, blending with my fingers and I love the effect.


One of the reasons why I've decided on these notebooks is because if you keep them relatively flat, you can store quite a bit of layouts in them. The bonus is that I get to use up my flat embellishments like washi tape and stickers and paper scraps.


I'm also enjoying old-school mess-free scrapbooking just using paper, tape glue, washi tape and stickers. It's great for times when you want to get creative but don't really want to clean up after...we all have such days right? *winks*

Those little travel notebooks look great. I bring mine on the trips but never seem to find the time to fill them out. You've done a marvelous job on your travel journal. Thanks for letting us take a peek.

Oh, I love this idea, Yvonne! Perfect, fun size for travel layouts, and I love that you can store a bunch of these in one binder album. That should really save on space. Your first pages are really beautiful. Love all the detail. The map paper borders are perfect. Love the framework you created with the gelatos, and love all the washi tape use, too!
