Traveler's Journal:Passport {Happy Memories}

***If you're here for the Reverse Confetti Blog Hop, please scroll down****
I'm so excited to be back today sharing my newest project with 
the Papertrey Ink Traveler's Journal team! Heather has outdone herself once again with this AMAZING new Passport size Traveler's Journal cover and coordinating page inserts! This month the team is focusing on adding ephemra to our journals and this size is the perfect fit for the things I wanted to include in my booklet! 

The cover die also comes with so MANY amazing word and embellishments dies that you will just fall right in love with! I had so much fun using them to create my journal! I used the "happy" and "memories" words that are included on my front cover! I don't think it's any surprise that I created this to document our recent trip to Disneyland!
I chose to use the small dot print from the Soft Stone Bitty Big Pattern paper as the backdrop for all of the fun embellishments. To begin, I die cut the word "happy" four times out of Aqua Mist cardstock. I glued them together and then added crystal glaze and chunky glitter to the top. For the "memories" word, I actually die cut it, but left it in the positive space and secured it on the back with scotch tape. The "right Now" image is from the Currently stamp set as well as the fun little typed words on the white strip. The Mickey silhouette is just circle punches and then I stamped the word remember on it using Fresh Snow ink. The silver diagonal striped image that I embossed in silver is from the Adventure stamp set.

I also wanted to create some paperclip embellishments to use in my journal. Minnie's red polka dot bow is iconic and the vintage Mickey images always have buttons on his pants, so I thought these would be great details to add to the clips. I used Pure Poppy Swiss Dot ribbonPure Poppy Stitched ribbon, and Aqua Mist stitched ribbon. I used True Black and Pure Poppy Buttons. Everything is just simply hot glued to the two sizes of clips.

As I mentioned earlier, this month is all about adding and preserving ephemra in our journals this month. I just love adding ephemra because it can help you with your color combinations, it can add graphic details, and can also include important information pertaining to the event, like dates and times!

I was thrilled to find that I had kept a crumpled receipt {which adds to the charm} from the Disneyland Tiki Bar where I purchased two of the famous Dole Whips! Don't you just love a Dole Whip? They are amazing! Anyway, it turned out to be such a cute detail for my has the "Disney" script, the date, the location, the price and what I bought. The "LOVE" and "This", and hearts and arrow are all included in the Passport journal cover die set as well. 

It's such a silly little thing, but such a cute detail to add in this particular journal! I also added  one of the bow clips to the side and some more of the words from the "Currently" set.

I also had to sneak in a sweet picture of my three youngest kiddos. I printed all of the pictures for this journal in the wallet size so they would fit nicely!

I was BEYOND happy that my husband had saved all of the park hopper passes! They are perfect pieces of ephemra to decorate this journal! I used more of the awesome dies included in the new die set. I used the front of my park hopper with Mickey, Goofy, and Mickey and then used the back of my oldest son's ticket to show some extra detail!

I took all of my color cues from the photos I took as well as these tickets. I eliminated a lot of yellow and added in the Aqua for a fresh and unexpected look.

Thanks for joining me today! I had so much fun getting started on this journal of such a special trip! There's nothing as magical as Disney! Thanks for fluttering by!

Can I ask if you have a typewriter you use for the very cool courier text you use?

Those are actually stamps that are included in the "currently" stamp set. I linked it in the post. Heather actually uses an old typewriter when she designs those sets. I love it too!
