DIY travel journal

DIY travel journal cover by momentstolivefor

When we planned our vacation from Munich to Vienna and Prague, I knew, I wanted to document it. Because I didn’t just wanted to write a travel journal the regular way on empty, boring pages, I prepared a Moleskine notebook with my beloved stamps and washi tapes. This way I was forced to think about little things too, like what I liked about a city most, that otherwise would have been forgotten.

For the cover I took many different washi tapes, stuck them over each other in different angles and cut the word ‘vacation!’ out. I saw this technique over at Whimseybox created by Alicia Dirago. Loved her typographic washi tape art so much, so I thought, it would be fun to make something similar for this little notebook.

On our last day in Prague, we sat in a beer garden and discussed the pros and cons of our way of traveling and what we loved and hated about the cities in particular. It was fun to see the different opinions.

Furthermore I prepared some pages with To do-lists for gifts, sightseeing spots and some photo projects, to keep track of all the ideas. It was very helpful to have this notebook at hand and filled it, whenever I had the time.

For this travel notebook I used the lovely stamps of Elise Blaha, Evalicious, Bananafishstudio, Amanda Rose, Amy Tangerine, I lowe Scrap and Blinks of Life along with some washi tapes. And if you’re wondering… yes, I have a really big collection of wooden mounted rubber stamps. It was so much fun, to use them for this little project.
