Organize Your Travel Plans – Journal Tutorial


Organizing Travel Plans can be hard to do if you don’t have a place to put those plans. Linda Israel is sharing how to make a super quick travel journal to hold those travel plans to help keep you organized. Using a blank 7gypsies journal along with a few other items this journal comes together quickly.

Organize your travel plans with 7gypsies.

Products used to make the travel journal:
7gypsies American Vintage 8×8 Paper Pad (48 sheets)

Architextures™ 6″x6″ Blank Journal – Sketch
Architextures™ Trinkets – Travel Toys
Canvas Corp 12×12 Cardstock Paper – Kraft 80#
Canvas Corp 12×12 Cardstock Paper – Ivory 80# – Phrases printed on my own computer on Ivory Cardstock
Canvas Corp Burlap by the Yard
Fabric scraps
Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect
No-Clog Writing Cap by ScraPerfect
Distress Ink – Walnut Stain
Blending tool, Sewing Machine, Velcro

Here are the main steps Linda followed in her process:

  • Cut American Vintage map page to just shy of 6 inches square
  • Create words with computer. Apply distress ink around the edges.
  • Layer papers, map, kraft cardstock, fabric and phrase. Sew layers together, adding decorative stitches around the edge.
  • Adhere layered papers to the cover leaving a pocket that opens on the top.
  • Attach 7gypsies truck from Travel Toys to the cover.
  • Add word phrases on the pages.
  • Create a tie out of burlap and fabric sewn together with a velcro closure. Wrap around journal to keep it closed.
