Travel Journal Pocket Inserts Tutorial


Hello, G45ers!

  We are happy to be starting this week off with a genius Pocket Insert Tutorial Video by Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Janus Zate.  Janus teaches us how to create beautiful pockets on pockets that are perfect for inserting into your Travel Journals, Mini Albums, and Planners.  Grab your papers and embellishments and lets have some fun!

Princess Travel Journal

By Janus Zate


“Hello G45ers! I’m Janus Zate from the Philippines.


Today I’d like to show you these travel journal pocket inserts that I made using the Princess collection.


I do a lot of junk journaling and one of my favourite parts of journaling is custom-making my own inserts. I feel like it adds more character to my journal than using ready-made ones.


Tip: Don’t be afraid to keep adding pockets within pockets. You can never have too many of them especially with journaling.

Tip: Keep your layers as flat or as dimensional as you want. Your journals are, in a way, a window to your soul, and your preference is also a way to help you express your artistic sensibility.
