Travel Journal Book Tutorial By Guest DT Anushree

Hello Crafty friends,

A very lovely warm Good Morning to you all.

Again we are back with a new tutorial and this time we have Anushree as our Guest DT in Teaching and Learning Program. Sit back with a coffee and enjoy the tutorial. 

Over to you Anushree,

Hello everyone,
I am really happy to be on the blog once more with Teaching and learning program. This time I have experimented with something out of my comfort zone. I have tried making a travel journal .With this journal I will be showcasing different techniques like making pockets and waterfall card which can also be used in making explosion box and different styles of albums or scrapbooks. In the waterfall card I have given provision to put pictures of the trip in tags of the pocket, one can jot down his memories of the journey. So let’s begin this beautiful project.

Here is the front cover of the journal for which I have used some pattern paper and metal embellishments with ribbons along.


So I started with green & blue cardstock and some pattern paper, along with some die-cuts. Sizes are mentioned in the pictures. The blue cardstock will form my base for journal with four sides,front,back and inside left and right.The green one is single sheet.


I started making water-fall card first. I took the green card stock and marked it according to the sizes mentioned (In Inches) in the pictures. I used my Martha Stewart scoreboard to do all this scoring. After that I did mountain folding to it. Put a little glue below the first marking and stick the pattern paper to it. The pattern paper only needs to be glued from the top section to the card stock. 


After that one by one rest three sheets of pattern paper needs to be glued to card stock in the same way.


This is how it will look after stacking all four sheets of pattern paper on the marked portions.


After that i folded  the green cardstock keeping all patterned paper on one side and remaining on the other. On the other side to the end make a hole to put ribbon through it. Now I took another pattern paper with some brads. This pattern paper is of similar size as the blue card stock and attached to blue cardstock from one side of it.



This is how the back cover will look after attaching both.


Meanwhile I made some tags again with pattern paper for the pocket on the inside left hand side cover. I also made a pocket separately for the left hand side cover. The pocket is glued to the base card stock which will hold all the tags.


Now I took that sheet of pattern paper for the waterfall card and glued to the green card stock.This is the only place where waterfall card is getting stuck to the journal, else nowhere we need to glue it up.


This is how my inside covers on both sides look like without any embellishments.


Now if we try pulling the green cardstock piece, the one which has hole in it, rest pattern paper will start showing a water fall effect. I am not sure if photos can justify the effect but honestly it’s a lovely effect which one should definitely try.


After that I started putting some mdf embellishments on the left hand side and some hand stamped travel related images along with the die-cuts on  the right hand side.That completes my journal.


This is how it looks finally.
 

I really enjoyed making this one.Hope you will enjoy it too. For any queries please feel free to ask.
