Create Your Very Own DIY Travel Log Using the Travel Log Collection

When you travel, there’s a lot to take in. You’re seeing all sorts of new sights, meeting all sorts of new people and trying all sorts of new things — it can be a lot to absorb! To help remember every thing from every adventure, many people create travel logs wherever they go. And fittingly enough, the Travel Log collection has all the supplies you need to create your own DIY travel log. Check out how blog contributor Tina used the collection to make a log that captures her wanderlust!

Tina’s Inspiration

My inspiration for this project is the notes I take while I travel. Why not have a dedicated travel log or notebook for your impressions, anecdotes, and experiences all in one place? When you are ready to scrapbook those memories, you won’t have to scramble to find your notes because it’s housed in your very own travel log.

Project by Tina Kistinger – CM Independent Advisor

To create this project, you will need:


Step 1: Cut paper for the front and back covers. Cut the top piece to measure 2-1/2″ x 6-3/4″, the bottom piece to measure 7-1/4″ x 6-3/4″ and the back piece to measure 9-3/4″ x 9-3/4″.


Step 2: Adhere the pieces of paper to the front and back covers with the Tape Runner and trim any overhang.


Step 3: Attach border stickers to the binding where the paper meets the binding and to the paper seam on the front cover. Trim them to fit.


Step 4: Cut out “Let’s Go Places” and “Travel Notes” from the Travel Log Variety Mat Pack and adhere them to the front cover using the Tape Runner.

Step 5: Decorate the front cover using Travel Log Embellishments and Stickers.

This project is a great way to use any leftovers supplies from the Travel Log collection. I’m looking forward to using this DIY travel log very soon.

There are so many ways to preserve and commemorate the memories you make when you travel. How do you like to document your trips and adventures? Comment below!

  1. What a super idea!!! Can’t wait to make one of my own! We are going to Israel next year! This will be great!

  2. I love this idea! It’s so easy and really a great way to keep all your travel memories.

  3. This is a great idea, I have taken extensive notes in the past, only to lose or give up on the information because it was on scraps of paper.

  4. I love this idea – and it actually works. I have been keeping a travel diary, daily, for years now, and my notes are invaluable when I sit down to get my holiday photos into my albums. If it is a whole before those photos go into an album, the notes are a great prompt. I usually store my travel diary with my photos, so that they are easily located when needed.
