I have made these in the past and painted pages and added a bunch of different things to them - I'll search one out and share it here when I do.
So because I love new ideas and I especially like to make them my own I decided to try this with my traditional paper bag albums as the base.
Here is one version I made and it has an uplifting and personal inspirational theme to it.
See the cover looks like any other paper bag album.
But then when you open it - its filled with so much more. Lots of extras
I used small bags, envelopes and vintage papers to create inner booklets and holders to hold special secret notes to yourself or words and photos that are extra special to you and maybe for your eyes only.
And I added a bunch of 3x5 journal cards with positive messages and lots of space for journaling in other spots. The smaller hand sewn booklets inside have little surprises all over,'it's quite fun to flip through these.
These inner books are made of scrapbook paper, journal tags, and vintage paper and are held in the album with bakers twine!!
I just posted a video up on YouTube (@onecraftymess) on a journal I made for my trip to Tennessee before it was filled in and another video with ideas on what to collect on your trips to add to your junk journal when you get home!
Next will be the finished travel journal with all my goodies added and it's quite full and super fun for all to flip through!!!
Happy Tuesday ya'll
