Summer is right around the corner which means summer travel is as well. If you are traveling by plane, train, or automobile or are simply planning a low key staycation, you will want to document your trip. Travel journaling can be completed (or started) when you are on your trip, or it is something that can be finished up once home with photos and ephemera collected along the way. These five tutorials will show you how to use pre-made and DIY journals to document your travels.
My favorite traveling paper crafter shares her tips on how to create a travel binder that you can complete while on the road.

Where would you like to travel this summer? I would love to go to China, we have been twice but it has been in winter both times, I would like to go when it is warm for a change!
I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
