Book Page Protector with Home Sweet Home 

By Sandra D


“Hi G45’ers and welcome back to the blog

Do you hate it when you have your journal in your bag

 and your book gets bent corners 


Well today I am sharing how to adjust your 

Journal so this won’t happen again 

Begin by removing all the components of your 

Travel Album 


The books slide out very easy from underneath the elastic 

Also, remove the Elastic Closer 



You need 3 of the Large Tag 

Cut 3 strips of black cardstock 2” x 7” 

Score 2 of these in half @1”

Take the third and score at ½” and 1 ½” 

I like to cut a triangle of the tops, see pic 

The one on the left has a section cut off so that the piece will sit above 

your pocket in the Travel Album 

 Once you have glued them together they will look like this 



Next start to decorate with your choice of papers 

I have used “Granny Quits” and “Handmade” 


I then put panels of paper for Important Info on these panels

Panel sizes are Black card 3 ¼” x 7 ¼”

Cream Sizes 3 ⅛” X 7 ⅛” 



Keep scraps of papers to create small banners. 



Place Cover to one side and Decorate the Note Books 



Place books back into the cover of the Travel Album and carefully then fold the tags over,

two at the back one at the front this will then protect your pages 



Continue to decorate as you wish 


We have a few tutorials on how to do this. 

The latest one is here
