Quick Travel Journal with a 6x6 Paper Pad (video)

Typically I make a travel journal for our trips; however, this time I left myself very little time to make one.  Without a journal, I tend to forget some of the details I want to include in our album.  I made this travel journal for our trip with papers from one 6x6 paper pad and little else.  The designs on the front are cut from some of the pattern papers.  The entire thing took less than 40 minutes including filming the video.

Using rings to hold the pages together make it easy to dissemble and use pages as journaling in my travel album later on.  Although, I have such poor handwriting that may not happen.  Still it is an option.
To save time, I did simple designs on each page.  Pages that had a busy print got a ledger stamped paper for writing space.

Now that we are home, all the pages are filled with details.  I've put the journal with my memorabilia from the trip so it will be ready when I get to the scrapbooking.

Here's the video at YouTube:

How do you capture your memories while traveling?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Such a great way to record the goings on and events during a trip. I do the same, but usually in a little notebook. I try to have my hubby and daughter contribute their thoughts too, but that doesn't always work. LOL!

  2. I really need to try one of these for an upcoming trip! Any tips on being attentive to writing in the book while actually on a trip? I'm afraid I'll forget. :-(

  3. This is such a great album.
    I capture my travel memories by blogging them. But for more personal notes I jot them down on index cards.
