Papertrey Ink // Travelers Journal Feature

Well it’s finally here. We are celebrating 10 years of the wonderful Papertrey Ink and Nichole and the rest of the team are really knocking it out of the park, wouldn’t you say?! I am very blessed to be here today alongside the uber talented Heather Nichols to showcase some of her incredible Travelers Journal products (including some new ones!) as a Team Contributor for this series. If you haven’t read Heather’s guest post on Nichole’s blog yet, click HERE and make sure you give it a read – you won’t be sorry. 🙂

For those of you who aren’t quite familiar with me, I will give you a bit of background. 🙂 My name is Stephanie Gold (everyone calls me Steph) and I am a proud wife to Bryan and mama to Abbey (6) and Jack (4). We live in Arizona and live a relatively simple life… spending time together, volunteering at our beloved church, and hanging out with cherished friends. We are all a bit goofy, silly, and at times crazy haha – we love laughing with each other and making the best of our chaotic lives! I began paper crafting in 2013 after I was given a card kit and I quickly and happily fell down the crafty rabbit hole. I spent the next few years taking classes, practicing and doing my best to improve because I was super in love with card making. I strongly believe it’s great for the soul and mind, and it makes me a happier human being. 🙂

I hope to get to know you all more and more as this year progresses, over our combined love for Papertrey, card making, and all things paper craft. <3 So let’s dive into my project for today!!

Now I don’t travel as much as the everyday Travelers Journal user but I do use Travelers Journals OFTEN. I love them. Love love them. There is something about their small frames that works really well for me. I also am a strong believer that you DON’T have to use them just for documenting travel!! So today I am going to show you this little book I made with the Papertrey Travelers Journal products to document my baby girl’s big moments as of recently.

This first page is all about the day she lost her first tooth. I have a little note of journaling all about it inside that little envelope and the date is stamped out using the brand new Travelers Journal: Dates stamp set (I’m in love!!).

Awwwwwwww look at that little toothless face! I can’t get enough… 🙂 One of the great things about these specific sets is the fact that you are in charge of creating your own cover. You can make it however you want! Whether you want to make a mini-album for a family trip that’s coming up, or if you are thinking of making a memory album for a Mother’s Day gift, etc… you get to completely customize your Journal to suit exactly what your needs are.

For this second page I wanted to document the day she got her ears pierced (sniffle, sniffle… such a big girl!!!). I used the smaller dot from the Dates set to create that pink polka dot frame and put my journaling on a tag and slipped it into the vellum baggy.

So what do you all think so far?? Have you ever used a Travelers Journal for other types of documenting? Or are you a purest “travel-only” Travelers Journal user? There’s no wrong way to use these and I can’t wait to see what you all make with the wonderful products that Heather is dreaming up for you! 😉 Thank you all so very much for stopping by my blog! Feel free to leave a note, ask a question, etc. below! Have a wonderful day and see you soon! 😉

Xo, Stephanie

    Welcome to the PTI Traveler’s Journal team. I agree – this concept can work so well – it doesn’t have to be used just for travel. I hope – someday – to start journaling while I’m on a trip, rather than waiting (and thinking) I’ll do it afterwards. That never seems to happen. Looking forward to all of this added inspiration this year. P.S. Your daughter will love having these special memories captured for her.

    Hello Stephanie, and welcome to your adventures with PTI! I don’t do any scrapbooking, and travel these days is pretty limited. Larger formats are a bit intimidating, so I’m liking the size used in these journals. I have a 2-year-old granddaughter who is just getting the last of her teeth, so we’re a ways off from her losing any of them! However, there’s plenty of other excitement in her life that could be fun to write up in small books like these. I’ll be looking out for your next post – have fun with your journals!

      Absolutely!!! Sometimes I just put a thought, poem, or song lyric that gets me that day. 🙂 You can use them for anything at all and I really love that. 🙂 Thank you so much for your comment, Lola!! Xoxo!

    I love all the wonderful little details with the stamping and die cutting in your book! Such a fun way to document how your little one is growing up!

    I love to scrapbook, but I mostly create 12×12 pages. You have definitely given me something to think about, though, since I don’t take the time to scrap as much these days and a smaller size page might make it more quick and fun to do!

    Thanks so much for sharing!!!

      Thank you so much Ruth!! Yes, very different from 12 x 12 haha. If you decide to give it a try, I’d love to see what you make! Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate it! xoxo
