Beach Vacation Folio Journal

Hi everyone! This month Eileen Hull’s teams are sharing travel theme projects and since I have an upcoming beach vacation I thought I would get a head start and put together a quick journal using the Folio Journal Diecut. So let’s get started!

First, I placed a sheet of patterned cardstock onto the diecut and ran through the Diecut Machine. I scored over the fold lines again so I would get a crisp fold and then I adhered a coordinating patterned cardstock to the inside .

I cut out three of the box tabs (not really sure what to call them?) from the Folio Journal Diecut, adhered the flaps of each tab to the inside of the middle of the journal and one to the top page of the journal. The “extra” flap I folded and glued down on each tab.

The top page of the journal I added a journaling card to the tab, adhered a piece of patterned cardstock to create a small pocket under the card and added a couple of journaling cards to the pocket.

The center page I added a journaling card and patterned cardstock to each of the tabs.

I might add more flaps and journaling cards later or a photo or two to the center of the page…depending on how this trip goes.

I only strung one piece of elastic in the spine and cut three pieces of cardstock and placed under the elastic. I didn’t sew the cardstock together in case I want to add more pages.

I decorated the outside with an assortment of of stickers, chipboard pieces, ric rac, seashell brad and a vacation cut a part that I stamped the word “beach” onto. I’ll come back later and add the name of the beach once the trip is over. I learned the hard way when I had a past vacation canceled because of a hurricane. I also added a couple of charms to finish…for now. I’m sure I will add more embellishments once my trip has come to past.
