It‘s me, Tanti. This time I want to share with you my travel journal in my June standard size Daisy Dori.
I always match my documentation with the design of the kit. No matter when it happened. Not only the event that happened in the current month but also some old memories, as long as it matches the theme of the kit. The lovely bicycle theme this month inspired me to document our short trip to Amsterdam back in March. It reminded me of the bicycles that you can see everywhere in Amsterdam.
For my title spread I used the vellum that came in the planner classified kit.
You can see the process of this spread in the video at the end of this post.
Here are some other spreads that I‘ve already finished.
On the spread below I made a pocket out of the 4“ x 6“ and the 3“ x 4“ journaling cards that came in the memory keeping pocket kit. I used the washi tape to attache it to the page. I used the pocket to store our tram tickets and another 4“ x 6“ card that I‘ve folded in half for my journal. On this card, I wrote about the price of the tickets and where to buy them.
I usually kept all the memorabilia from every trip and attached them in to my travel journal. Here, I even glued the tissue paper towel from the snack corner in my journal, as you can see in the picture below.
I also glued the free city map that we’ve got and we’ve used during our stay in Amsterdam.
I always did this in all of my past travel journals. I just love to look on it again to remember where we have been.
I then folded it like this.
This spread below has two tip-ins. The one on the right side is a brochure from the diamond grinding shop that we‘ve visited there. And the one on the left side is actually a paper pocket for the cutlery from the restaurant where we had lunch.
The spread below is not quite finished. I might add some more embellishments on it.
This spread has also two tip-ins.
The second tip-in is the ticket to the museum.
That‘s it. The last three spreads are not finish yet. I‘ll share them on my Instagram after I finished them.
If you want to know how I’ve created my first spread, please feel free to watch my journal process video below.
I hope that this post could inspire you.
Thank you so much for joining me today and hope to see you next time.
I LOVE this travel journal! Especially all the bits and pieces you saved from the places you went. AND the card you made with the journaling cards is amazing!!
Thank you so much Casie. Glad you liked it.
Thank you so much Casie. I’m glad that you liked it.
Tanti, I’m blown away by these journaling spreads. I don’t even know what to say, so many details, so much to see and explore in those pages! Thank you so much for sharing!
Love your work! But I’m a bit confused about sizes and names. My wonderful daughter in law got me started on 10 1/4 x 4 1/4 with no holes. Does this size have a name? Help me please! Suzy
Thank you so much. Are you sure about the size? Because I‘ve never heard about it. The standard size dori is about 8 1/4 x 4 1/4.
