Travel Journal

Hi there,  Karen here, sharing a Travel Journal created with the New Stateside collection.  These papers are perfect for Traveling, Military, and Miss you-themed projects.

Creating fun journals like this are great for road trips and an awesome way to document your adventures (in and out of the car). I look forward to documenting new memories in this journal on our next family trip. I’m including a quick and easy tutorial below.
