Cinch Travel Journal

Hi everyone, it’s Traci and I’m excited to be sharing a great vacation project with you today.  If you plan to travel this summer, create this easy travel journal to take with you!  Record your memories, tuck in some photos, keep memorabilia in the envelopes, and your trip will be saved and easy to share.

To create the journal, I used the Cinch Binding Tool, the Envelope Punch Board and the Cinch Journal Kit.  The Jet Set paper is an older We R collection from my stash.  I didn’t need much paper for this journal so using up scraps from the past was perfect!

To start, I created some envelopes of various sizes using the envelope punch board.  This is very easy … just follow the size instructions right on the board!

Once the envelopes were created, I decorated the chipboard covers that are included in the Cinch Journal kit.  Once my covers were embellished, I punched my binding holes using my Cinch tool.   Easy directions are also included right on the Cinch, as well as in the packaging for the journal kit.

Next, I punched binding holes in all of my journaling pages, envelopes, and accent pieces.

Once all of my binding holes were created, I added my binding wire to all the pieces to create my finished journal.

I hope this has given you some ideas for a travel journal for your summer vacation!  Make them for the kids too!  Theirs could include pages to keep them busy during the trip, space for their photos and notes, or even coloring pages!
