Flip Book By Bea Valint
Planners are very popular and they are such a great way to document your travels along with your everyday schedule. I love working with my traveler’s notebooks. I have a traveler’s notebook that I use every day to keep a list of my daily tasks. This is a place where I keep important dates and activities. Start out small using a traveler’s notebook and you will see that this will be one thing you won’t be able to live without! Bea shows us a flip-book that she created that is on the same line as a traveler’s notebook.
Flip-books are so much fun to create, especially if you fill them with your photos, stories, memorabilia, and memories of a particular trip, holiday, or event. A flip-book can be used as a planner or a small mini album. I love the idea that Bea created the flip-book ahead of her trip so she only had to add pictures. This is a fabulous idea! Create it in your own style and add your personal favorite items to the pages. The ideal way is your way! Use what you love, do what works best for you, and just have fun doing it. Let me take you on over to My Shiny Studio where you will see how Bea created this darling book for her summer trip. Never be afraid to try something new – creativity involves breaking out of your traditional style.
