Back in the summer, I travelled around Central Europe and visited ten cities in four countries. I'm sure I'll eventually document this trip, the memorabilia I collected, and all the little details in a separate travel album, but for now I wanted to make sure a summary of my adventure made its way into my Project Life.
I ended up making five 12x12 spreads for my album. To streamline the process, I edited and printed my photos all in one go, since that normally takes me the longest. I used one 4x6 photo per city and labelled each 4x6 with the city name, country, and date(s) visited. The rest of the pockets are a mix of 3x4 photos and printable journaling cards from my store. I laid out all my photos and journaling cards first, then went ahead and added bits of embellishments to my pictures and cards. As always, the last step in my process is to finish things off with journaling on the cards.
Here's a look at my spreads:
In a Creative Bubble products: Awesome cards (hip hip hooray card), Travelogue cards no.3 (here we go card), Vancouver cards (here + there card)
In a Creative Bubble products: Good Stuff cards (01/02 card), Vancouver cards (raincloud card), Click cards (take a picture card), Journey cards (moments card)
I added a bit of stamping (with a stamp I designed for Studio Calico) to the cloud on my filler card. I used one of my favorite blue ink pads - Color Theory's Something Blue.
In a Creative Bubble products: Recorded cards no.4 (awesome card), Japan cards no.2 (always on the go card), Travelogue cards no.1 (travelogue card, adventurer card)
I added washi tape ticket strips to the edges of my adventurer card since I thought they were fitting and liked how they added pops of color.
In a Creative Bubble products: Everyday Adventure cards (adventuring card), Friendship cards (good times circle card, yellow card), Travelogue cards no.2 (explore card)
In a Creative Bubble cards: Journey cards (enjoy the journey card), Summer cards no.2 (summer card), Vancouver cards (explore flag card), Travelogue prompt cards (go card)
The bear tab is actually a little piece of washi tape that I stuck on an orange scrap. I stapled it to the corner of my photo and added a word sticker that says 'wild thing'. Love how that turned out!
Other products used:
- Christine Herrin Gone Exploring stamp
- In a Creative Bubble Urban Summer stamp
- Kelly Purkey New Adventures stamp

So glad to finish up these spreads and have this trip documented in my Project Life! Thanks for taking a look and I hope they inspire you to work on your own albums. Happy Wednesday.
