The Travel Ledger line is not only amazing, inspiring and beautiful, but also stands on it's own. There is no need to use much of anything besides what is in the collection to create amazing projects and layouts and the project featured today is a great example of how you can use just a few sheets of paper, lots of wallet sized photos and journaled memories to make something wonderful....
Todays inspiration was created by Stephanie using only FIVE papers, some binding wire, photos and memories to document her trip to South Africa in 2008.
To create this project you will need the following papers (click on image to see)
Travel Ledger Library Envelopes (TL1420) - punch out all elements
Travel Ledger Travel Tags Paper (TL1405) - Trim out all elements
Travel Ledger Travel Postcards (TL1409) - cut out all postcards
Travel Ledger Tags (TL1421) - punch out all elements
Using the large black file folder as your cover, fold closed and punch binding holes into the left side of the folder. After holes have been created, pull front flap away from back and carefully cut ONLY THE FRONT FLAP of the file folder from the top to the fold (approx. 1/2" over from the left side.) DO NOT CUT BACK OF FILE FOLDER (refer to photo for reference.)
Are you confused? Take a look at the photo below and think about this: most of the postcards, tags, tabs and envelopes will be bound into the filer folder with the binding wire on the left. The front flap has been trimmed so that it can flap open to reveal pockets and photos, and then flap back up to close the book...
Here is the really simple part (with no right or wrong way to do it) simply create a stack of postcards, tags, and cards that you have punched out and trimmed (be sure to alternate sizes for variety!)and then bind them right onto the folder.....be sure to save some of the tags for journal spots and embellishments.
Adhere library card pockets to the inside of the front flap & to the back of the folder and fill with tags...
Use the postcards and journal spots to add highlight's, moments, memories and even little photos of your journey whether it be around the world...across the country or down the road!
