Tips for Crafting On-the-Go with Bea

Hey, everyone! This week the highlighted theme on the blog is travel projects! Traveling means me a lot of new adventures and stories what I love to tell and document! Creating travel journals are the best way to write about the trips and the experiences we had. It’s a collection of adventures, stories, memories and discovery.

For me, the travel journal project starts at home, before the travel. I used to gather a ‘travel kit’ what includes all the crafty things I need on the go. It contains essential things like scissors and glue, but there are other supplies which I customize depending on our destination. Watercolor pencils, water brush, stickers, die-cuts, paper clips are always welcomed!

The most important part of my travel kit are the handmade travel journaling booklets.

This time I used the incredibly beautiful Willow collection to customize my journals. I adhered patterned paper to add a cover, and used ephemera pieces to create the title.

My next trick is preparing some pages into my journal in advance. I used to create basic design, which makes the first days easier to document.

In this spread I used the calendar block stamp by 1 Canoe 2 to start my journal. I also added journal tag, washi tape and stickers from the sticker book. The tiny envelope could help me to store memorabilia.
