Hi Cindy, I've got a post here on doing a Project Life album while traveling: I'd recommend keeping it simple - bring only a few stamp sets, some ink cubes, and washi tape like I used above. Maybe a couple of 6x6 paper pads too if you think you'll need them? I think stamps are the key! They're easy to pack and you can do so much with them, especially my smaller planner ones. Bon voyage!

Hi Michelle, I did the very first title page ahead of time to use for another trip but ended up saving the notebook and just filling in the rest when I got home from Japan.
I've jumped on the Traveler's Notebook bandwagon, which is the new trend in scrapbooking + documenting. When in Tokyo, I was fortunate to go to the Midori's Traveler's Notebook Factory, where I loaded up on some supplies. What better format... Continue reading

Every week I resolve to get back to a regular blogging schedule and then before I know it the weekend is here and I've gone without posting. It's been a very, very full six weeks. I went around the world... Continue reading

When I was on the East Coast last week the temps were in the 90's and I was miserable. A miserable sweaty mess. Thankfully back in the PNW the weather has finally gotten chilly and it feels like fall. Yes.... Continue reading
