My first thought upon waking this morning was “OMG! I only have 10 more days until I leave for Kentucky & 11 more days until I see Jenn”. It still does’t seem quite real that I am going (it never does really) but, while I purchased my tickets months ago, and I have been slowly pre-packing my bag It still feels as though it just snuck up on me. I still have last minute things to buy like dramamine, Benadryl and travel snacks, last minute planning about Kidlet’s schedule, instructions to write out for turtle, and tomato & basil plant care and probably a million other things to do to gah!
What I have been doing though this past week is getting the SN@P binder for my travel album ready, and a to go craft kit together. In the past I have used my Smashbook to document my travels to Kentucky after I got home and while I still plan on doing that for larger pieces of memorabilia that I bring home, I wanted to do an album just for this trip. I originally had the idea of making a daybook like I did for my trip to Boston last year but, I knew I wanted to try something a little different, perhaps easier to create this time around.
Here are the supplies I purchased:
- Brown SN@P Binder
- 3×4 Snappy Days Sn@p Cards
- 3×4 Snappy Sayings Sn@p Cards
- 3×4 Fill in the Blanks Sn@p Cards
- 4×6 Life Sn@p Cards
- Urban Traveler Sn@p Cards (16 4×6, 16 3×4)
- Urban Traveler Layered Stickers
- Urban Traveler 12×12 papers (1 each design)
- Urban Traveler Sn@p Pockets
- Urban Traveler Fundamentals Cardstock Stickers
- Sn@p Pocket Pages (1pk each 6×6, 4×6, 3×4, Multipack)
What I have added to my to go kit:
- 5 various rolls of washi
- American Crafts Precision Pens & Metallic Markers
- Sn@p Cards
- Extra Sn@p Pockets (multipack)
- Sn@p Layered Stickers
- Various 2×8, 3×4, 4×4 & 4×6 pieces of cardstock cut from the 12×12 Urban Traveler paper & my stash
- Elmer’s glue tape & quick dry glue
- Of course my Sn@p Binder
Also, in preparation I went ahead and typed up some of the things I already wanted to say about the trip and printed it onto the journaling cards using a template that I created in word because my handwriting is too big & bubbly for getting everything I wanted to say to fit.
So that is what I am using for my upcoming trip album. I am excited not only for my trip but, also because I finally figured out how to print on journaling cards and really it super simple using Word. Perhaps I will do a video tutorial on it for anyone who would like to know how to do it.
Oh! I forgot to tell you that I prefilled all of the pockets with journal & filler cards, and I will be printing out my planner pages that you can download here to jot things down while I am out and about. I will also be using the Picstitch & Walgreens apps to get cheap fast printing done while I am on my trip.
