Tropical Travelogue Notebook
“I was thrilled to see that Tropical Travelogue is being released again as a Deluxe Collector's Edition! This collection is so colorful and has such great tropical colors and imagery. I had just 7 sheets of paper and some little scraps left from the original collection released in 2011, so I challenged myself to make a traveler's notebook with those remains. These notebooks are so fun, and useful to have while vacationing. I included a signature (these are the inner books in the notebook) that is made up of lined note paper. It’s a great place to write notes and reminders while vacationing. The other two signatures are perfect for photos and memorabilia. I recorded a quick video flip through so you could see all the pages.” ~Maggi
Tip: Coat the cover of your minis with matte medium as this will make the paper stronger and protect the cover from wear and tear. Fussy cut elements in particular, benefit from this treatment and it is best to coat both the front and back sides.
Tip: When you only have a little bit of paper, use cardstock as the base for some of your pages. Then fussy cut elements and layer over the cardstock. Save every little scrap until you are finished. You’d be surprised how you can utilize those little pieces.
