Every January everyone starts talking about creating a journal to record our daily/weekly/ monthly events; or perhaps creating a journal of stuff we want to document. I’ve never gone this route because I just didn’t want to create a complete 12” x 12” scrapbook based on general, everyday stuff for an entire year – way too much work!!!! Then I came across these journals by Fancy Pants and they seemed to be the answer for me. These journals are wire bound and contain 12 sections – perfect for creating a monthly journal. Complete with journaling pages, photo pages and pockets, I thought it would be a good starting point for my 2013 journal.
I haven’t yet covered the front of my journal. I’m not sure what I want to do with it, but I’m sure over the next few months, some ideas will come to mind.
For January, I wanted to document my trip to Anaheim, California. I attended CHA, visited Disney and took a road trip to Los Angeles and Beverly Hills.
Using Moxxie’s Which Way Paper, I cut the banner to fit my first page and added my CHA ticket stubs. On the adjacent page, I started journaling, added my ticket stubs and used papers from Reminisce and stickers from Adornit.
The following pages are filled with assorted papers and stickers and journaling to document this trip. Each section ends with photo sleeves and a pocket which is perfect for holding additional photos and memorabilia for the month.
I am hoping to create a section each month for stuff that’s going on.
