Through our gypsy travels, we love to collect ephemera to remind us of all are museums, shops and events we see along our travels. We also like to make little notes to document our memories. I am Monica Taylor and I have the perfect project for that!!! Let’s have a look at my Patriotic Post Card Journal.
Using the American Vintage 8×8 Paper stack and various ephemera as my inspiration, I created this little Patriotic Post Card Passport Book to capture all our memories along the way.
CCB Thickstock – Hot Fudge
7 Gypsies 8×8 American Vintage Paper Pack
7gypsies Journal Pages: Lille
7gypsies Gypsy Moments Cards: States I Visited

Tim Holtz Corespondence Paper Pack
Carabelle Studio American Flag stamp
Tim Holtz Paper Dolls

Using the Sizzix die cut, Cut out the Front, Back and binding of the Book from the Hot Fudge Thickstock.
Cut out the Red and white paper and Blue and white Floral paper using the same die set and adhere to the Brown Thickstock
Cut out 12 pages using the die cut from the American vintage Paper Pack
Book has four signatures. Each Signature has 4 pages. Bind these signatures together using the twine.
Create pockets using scraps of the Paper to tuck journal cards and ephemera
Cut out mini post cards from the American Vintage Paper Pack and add to various tucks and pockets

This is a fun little keepsake book that is great for travels; it has room for notes and tucks to save receipts, tickets and ephemera collected along the way. It’s everything you need to keep track on your travels.

I love this journal and I love the way the binding is done. Any chance of seeing a tutorial on that technique?
