Travel Journal

Kathy Orta at Paper Phenomenon designed this wonderful Travel Journal. You can purchase the tutorial by clicking on the link.

I made the journal using the Close to my Heart Wanderful collection. Sadly, this collection is being phased out and will no longer be available in the catalogue. However, I do still have a few papers in my stash to use for other travel projects!

The base of the folder is made from Kraft Tex, an amazing paper/fabric that seems to be indestructible and is so easy to work with. Instead of glueing the paper to the Kraft Tex, Kathy suggested using fabric bonding material like you would use for doing appliqué work. It worked fabulously and I am so pleased with the end product. It will be interesting to see how it stands up to use!
