Capture Your Travel Memories

It's almost time for spring break here in Georgia -- which for many people means a long-awaited vacation.  Although my family often travels this time of year, a getaway will have to wait until summer for the Penrods.  Still, with everyone else talking about plans, I was inspired to create a travel journal.  

According to Wikipedia:  travel journal, also called road journal or travelogue, is a record made by a voyager. Generally in diary form, a travel journal contains descriptions of the traveler's experiences, and is normally written during the course of the journey.

I, of course, had to incorporate photos into that description and the unique altered album below is the result.  The journal includes 12 pockets and tags for daily notes and photos.  On the back inside cover, there is an altered tin memorabilia box for stashing tickets, mementos, maps and other bits and pieces.

Thanks for checking in with Artsy Albums today...and if you have trip coming up soon -- may you be inspired to record your experiences through journaling and photos.
Safe travels!


 This journal can be found in my shop at:

4 New Scrapbook Kits and Another Premade Album!

Wow -- very busy weekend at Artsy Albums!  I have 4 brand new scrapbook mini album kits to share with you today, in addition to a new pre made album that is ready for photos!  They are all available in my Shop so you can get all of the details there!

As always, all of my mini album kits come with all of the materials you will need to make the album (except tools and adhesive) and they all come with step-by-step full color instructions!  Fun, easy, and you don't have to come up with the creative part!

I love so many of the new collections that were introduced at this winter's Craft and Hobby Association conference last month and ALL four of these kits use scrapbook paper and embellishments that are newly released from that conference!

The newest pre made mini album was also made using a brand new collection of great papers and embellishments from Echo Park.  If you like the albums in the kits, but prefer not to make the project, ask me about a possible pre made album of that design!  I can often accommodate this request.

Here is the newest pre made album:

And here are just a few photos from the newest kits available at Artsy Albums.

I am off to go create something else....this time, it's dinner....have a great day and thanks for visiting Artsy Albums!!
