DIY TRAVEL BOOK- SOUTH AFRICA!!!!!

One of the thing that I actually do is DOCUMENT and CREATE my own life and my own memories. I design the products and lines that personally inspire me and I want to use. So this was the actual book that I created while traveling in South Africa. 

It was a LONG 12 day trip and I did this entire book of our travels from day 1 of the trip. It was all done during my trip. So I thought I would share how I document TRAVEL during the journey.




(6x6 paper pad TC GOLD GLAM, stickers, wash tape- debuting at JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts this month)


(TC mini heart wash tape)

I found this magnet and KNEW it was perfect to put on the cover of my album. 


  The things I recommend taking with you on your trip are the following:

TC Gold Stapler *fiskars, TC Scissors (fiskars), Favorite Black Journaling Pen, TC Mega Runner (Xyron) and BLANK BOOK (I am using a new TC white marble book that has not debuted yet but has LINED pages and is big!!!)



I love to use my room key holder and info from the trip to include in my book. This way I can remember where I stayed.


I love to keep my receipts and will staple them to pages in my book. So easy and so FAST! 


I'm obsessed with STICKERS that represent where I am at. This was so beautiful and the colors of SA. So easy to simply place within your book.

Glenda who hosted the SA Scrapbook convention was so organized and gave me a very detailed itinerary of my days there, activities, the hotel and locations. I simply folded over every single page in 1/2 and stapled inside the book pages. 

Why rewrite what has already been done for you????


POSTCARDS-

 I cannot get enough.
No one can take these beautiful photos and so I like to make it easier for myself to simply buy postcards to add stunning visuals along with the photos that I take. 

(TC GOLD GLAM glitter die cut stars and gold pineapple brads)



The SECRET is to do it WHILE you are on the trip. It's so easy to write down moments RIGHT in the moment. That is why a stapler is vital. Staple in travel notes, brochures and hotel cards. 




This was my bag from OUT OF AFRICA and I cut out this large icon from my shopping bag to place in my book.


The shape of Africa was on the bag as well. I placed my luggage sticker tags in the book as well.



JOURNAL JOURNAL JOURNAL
WRITE IT DOWN while on the trip so you are capturing your feelings in the moment.

(TC Gold Glam washi tape:  gold and black and white)


(TC GOLD GLAM WASHI TAPE- pineapples)


When you come home you will thank me. Life is so busy and you are catching up on WORK, LIFE, KIDS, TONS of laundry... right? So all you have to do is come home and PRINT the photos from your camera and phone. *note: print photos within a week of being home so you don't put it off. Simply add the photos to your album.




I love using 6x6 paper pads since the patterns are smaller. 
(TC Gold Glam 6x6 paper pad, 3x4 Gold Glam journaling cards (glitter heart), TC heart enamel)



Use any notes to personalize your book. This was given to us at the Kichaka Lodge when we arrived in our room. 
(TC GOLD GLAM- gold book plates)




Add train cards, tickets, hotel notepads etc. 

I love documenting my TRAVEL and TRIPS while still on the trip. I hope this show you a little bit more on how I design and create on a personal level.

*note GOLD GLAM is my newest line debuting and since I had the products I used them to create this book. They will be available later this month.

I have so much to share.... more later!

My life was destroyed when my husband sent me packing, after 13 years we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to my husband back to me. One day at work, I was distracted, not knowing that my boss called me, so he sat and asked me what it was all about, I told him and he smiled and said it was no problem. I never understood what he meant by it was no problem getting back my husband, he said he used a spell to get back his wife when she left him for another man, and now they are together till date and initially I was shocked hearing something from my boss. He gave me an email address of the Prophet Abuvia which helped him get his wife back, I never believed that this would work, but I had no choice coming into contact with the sayings that I get done, and he asked for my information and that my husband was able to propose to throw him the spell and I sent him the details, but after two days, my mother called me that my husband was pleading that he wants me back, I never believed, because it was just a dream and I had to rush off to my mother's place and to my greatest surprise, was kneeling my husband beg me for forgiveness that he wants me and the child back home, when I gave prophet Abuvia a conversation regarding sudden change of my husband and he made clear to me that my husband will love me until the end of the world, that he will never leave for another woman. Now me and my husband is back together and started doing funny things he has not done before, he makes me happy and do what it is supposed to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind need, please contact Prophet Abuvia for help. His email is prophet.abuvia@gmail.com his website is http://prophetAbuviasolutiontemple.webs.com/
