Hello Sweet Friends! Florence here! I am going to share with you some tips and tricks I use to document on the go. Traveler’s notebooks are my favorite to work with when traveling. You’re able to journal and scrapbook in a small space without having to drag your craft room along!
Let’s be real, some of us like to take all of the things with us, but what do you take when you have limited space? Flying to another country but still want to bring some goodies?
No problem! I suggest preparing your pages before leaving, especially cutting down papers and stamping. That will eliminate having to bring your bulky cutter and your whole ink and stamp collection. Things that are compact and work well are ephemera and stickers! I love bringing a variety with me, especially since my style is very layered and I enjoy having options. My favorite adhesive to use is Glue Dots. They are a huge sponsor of Stamp and Scrapbook Expo and provide samples to our crops, which is how I first tried them when I attended earlier this year. Don’t have a pouch? No problem. Don’t go out and buy one, you may already have one in your makeup stash!
The next time you head out of town, I challenge you to keep it limited. I know, that sounds so restricted. But pick your favorite pen (mine is the Sharpie pen), cut down 10 sheets of paper to fit your traveler’s notebook, and take adhesive, ephemera, and stickers (however much fits into your bag). Realistically, many of us cannot travel with all we want to bring along, but in reality, we may not touch a single thing while we’re traveling. We mean well, but life does happen and we get caught up in the moment and forget to document and that’s okay! I’m trying to help with limiting the weight for you to buy new products while you travel! Just kidding! 🙂
I hope this helps you with ideas for documenting on the go. I personally love stamping, stickers, and ephemera so I use it heavily in my memory keeping. What are some of your favorite things that I should add to my on-the-go kit?
Until next time!
