Traveler Journals Preview

Published by Darron Toy on

for everyone I just wanted to share with you a traveler's journal that my mom and I worked on together I also wanted to show you just a small preview of the new collection that I will be releasing it's the winged I didn't have the papers for the winged elements out quite a while ago but I did revise some of the pages and I added to the collection so there's ephemera post cards tags and so forth I will just show you a little preview of some of the pages some of these stayed the same so like this one was from the original kit but then I added these lined papers and I double-sided these [Applause] so now there's lines papers to go with the collection this was one that I did revise from the original as well as this one and if you've already purchased the winged elements and you want some of the revised images to send me an email and I'll make sure that you do get those revised designs this is a new one so I believe there's 15 designs and then five lined papers five envelopes five large tags with borders three sheets of postcards with tags I believe I don't have all of them print it out but I just wanted to give you a little preview of a few of them these are just ones that I printed out to send out in a kit and sometimes when you print them out the very top gets cut off so you kind of just have to cut around that shape and then I just distressed the edges but I do try to make the envelopes as big as I can get them these are the large tags I printed these on my older model HP LaserJet it's m251nw and I love my older ink not inkjet I love my older laser because the toner I get the remanufactured toner from Amazon and it's very reasonable whereas my newer model HP for whatever reason the remanufactured toner is a lot more so if you guys can still get your hands on one of the older model laser printers you know if you're looking to go shopping for a printer it is one I highly recommend now here's another envelope I printed this on pearl paper some more tags and there is just a preview of the new collection now the travelers journal and my mom and I have done quite a few of these and I'm hoping to get more videos showing all of the journals that we've done but I will have them all listed on the site for sale I believe we have about ten done and we're doing some more but I know they're gonna go fast just from past experiences they tend to go really fast so if you do want one of these I just recommend that you check out the site they'll be for sale at my dream CTC site under the journals section and I like I said they'll be around ten and then my mom and I are doing a few more I'm not really taking too many custom orders at this point I'm trying to recover from a neck injury and it's had me down for quite while I am recovering slowly but I am so far behind and I am trying to you know just kind of get back on track so I won't be doing any custom orders for a while so when these are available I just recommend grabbing them if you're very interested in getting one okay so starting off but we did here on the cover and as we have this little charm we did a little beading and strung it around the elastic we took composition notebooks and we had them cut so they were in strips and so this is just a strip of a composition notebook which just gives you a lot of space to write notes or whatever you might want to put in there and then let's see the pins here we also did some more beading added some bling they're the they're the nice rose gold metallic or no it's a rose gold I can't tell the lighting but I think it's just the gold metallic pants and the Cynthia rally pins so these pens do come with the journal for your travelers journal again I hope to have those in the next few weeks so inside we just have some journal cards and here's one of the tags that I moved to the front of the page and then I just kind of used my exacto knife to create this little pocket that holds this little tag and then I added little gold metallic word sentiments to it to embellish it a little bit you guys own than me I love to embellish and then here's one of the line papers just created a little flap here with one of the ephemera cards this is another thumb ricard actually a couple more of them and one of the word sentiments that comes in the collection and then here I had a weekly stamp and I just stamped on the white side of the card and then here is a little notepad for writing little notes sticky note pad and then of course places to journal and then here is one of the ephemera cards so you could insert a picture here this I cut out fussy cut the butterfly out of the ephemera pack and then added one of the Martha Stewart butterfly stickers over it and here's another ephemera card I just created this little pocket to hold it in place and then here's one of the smaller tags and I did a little stamping I love as you guys know I love using my stencils this is a Tim Holtz stencil and I believe it came with a butterfly cling stamp set I think you can get them at Michael's or Joanne's here I just applied a little dragonfly sticker over it over the dragonfly on the tag and again more places to journal get a little flap there just use some washi tape to make my hinge and this is I just cut half of the postcard that's in the thumb er a pack is what I did there and this is one of the lined papers and then here I used one of the borders to create a side pocket added a word sentiment and here is one of the journal cards from the kit here I used a stamp that says brilliant ideas so another place to do journaling more over here another place you could insert a photo and this is just a leftover piece from one of the lined papers so you could actually still journal across it and then I just added another word sentiment I got these word sentiments I love them I got him at Dollar Tree and I'm pretty sure you could still get them I think I'm gonna go back and get some more because I had so much fun using them they just added that little touch that that just gave you know a little more interest to the page and there's another one and another one and another one more stamping this is from the Prima an older prima stamp set and this is all ephemera from the collection I loved this stamp it says smile giggle laugh and joy and I think I got that one at oh I think it was Hobby Lobby this these other stamps this brilliant ideas I think I got that at Hobby Lobby and then show me how brave are showing me how big your brave is that I believe I got a Hobby Lobby and this monthly calendar I have no idea where I got that so I'm sorry I love it but I know it's an older stamp I'm not even sure if you could still get it but these ones are newer and I believe I got them all at Hobby Lobby it's just one of those Martha Stewart butterflies it's able to run to Tuesday morning and pick up a whole bunch of those stickers I lucked out my the timing and just happened to just get there at the right time and then this is the other side of the pouch I love these pouches because you can include just little bits of things like here is a journal card and then I have some of the Prima butterfly paper clips and then here's some washi tape I got these also at the the dollar store I just kind of cut them in sections and then another journal card both of these journal cards came there in the the kit I think actually these are freebies that come in the newsletter so if you get the newsletter guess what guys these are the freebies that are going to be included in okay so and just to subscribe to my newsletter just go to drains e.t.c calm and at the bottom of the homepage does click on subscribe and then you should be getting the newsletter so there's all those goodies and then I just put on my business cards in here just to demonstrate but here's a little business card holder so when you're traveling and you run across you might run across certain people and they hand you a business card then you can just you have a place to put it and here is another section of a composition tablet that was cut down to this size and then I just used one of the design papers I cut it to size just from the winged elements I'll probably cover the inside of this not sure because kind of makes a nice place to add in dates if you wanted to or special times appointments so forth so I might just leave that and then you have a whole tablet here where you can do a ton of journaling and more places for business cards and then here we have like I think they're called little dashboards there's here's a another little journal card and I just created this little laminated pocket and then another Martha Stewart butterfly stickers over that and then here is another thumber a card and tag and then here is one of the envelopes and I need to put a card inside the envelope which I will do and then you have a monthly calendar for this is for 2018 and 2019 so you have two years here so this would last you a while and then when you're done with you can take it out and replace it with a new one and then here's more journal cards so lots of them to journal place photos and here's a tag and another tag and there is our travel journal now I have to show you guys some of the others I'll just show you the outer parts of it cuz I don't have time to you know do every single one I would be here for a long time okay what's going on here this is all cut this all tangled somehow so and you can this has a little clasp so you could take this charm off and if you didn't want it on here you know you could attach it to your keychain or whatever you like and then also on the side with the beads bead dangle it's got a little clasp where you can detach it and and this just slides back on the front like so and I just kind of use a little paper clip to hold hold it in place there and then I forgot my forgot to put my pin back on okay and so there is the preview of that one and let me show you the others that I have okay so here is one of the TIROS guess I can do a brief little flip through and then I will be embellishing all of these pages there's the business card holder and the planner and here's the pen that it comes with and all this wonderful beading got pretty my mom is the one who created most of these I just go in again and I just kind of embellish them that's all I did and then here's another tea rose cafe one here is a ferry journeys and again look at all the wonderful beading and then let's see I have quite a few heroes it looks like a forty Rose cafe journals and again after I do all the embellishing of these I will do a preview hopefully another video showing how I did the inside of these or how I should say how my mom and I did the insides of these again since she did most of the work I just go in and embellished embellished embellished that's my job but she did all the beautiful beadwork she put all the books together I helped her with the Pens we did do the Pens together and then I just go in and just add a few specials such as I'm stamping and so forth if you don't see them on the site it's probably because I don't have the embellishing done so just shoot me an email and if you want one let me know and I will get you taken care of all right so there's just a preview on some of the other travel journals and I have to show you last week I had a lovely lady come visit me in my studio she flew all the way from Washington just kind of to do a meet and greet and we had to do a little bit of a project so she had started on this larger size travel journal and it is large we were sizing it around a full size composition notebook and so I created the cover here from the winged elements collection and there is a four there's five a four sized designs in the kit and that's what I used here I did on the front and the back and then I'll be doing craft x here which I might cover after I get everything strong not sure not sure yet but I used that's what I used here on the spinous and craft text and then of course you know I'll clean this up with a little trim or something to decorate it and then I'll be adding in some notes a calendar and up because I'll be recovering all of this she covered this composition book for me this is one of the a4 papers as well from the winged elements and there's the back and then she used some of the ephemera and we created a folder I just need to cut it and we'll have our little black folder flap there it was on this page so that's what I have in the works and I won't be finishing this up until I get my T Rose cafe part three done which is almost done thank goodness and I also have some other custom orders that I'll be finishing up but this is kind of what I have in the works and as far as travel journals go and I'll be uploading another video on another Jain journal that I do any more custom orders but when you see these available on the site just grab them as you know they're good they're gonna go quick they always do my mom and I take so much pride in our work we really put our heart and souls into everything that we make and so you know it takes time it takes time to add in all those fine details but anyway I hope you guys all enjoyed the video of the travelers be sure to subscribe to the newsletter for those freebies and coupons and if you have any questions please send me an email thank you so much for watching

Hello Jen
I do not post comments generally but there I can not pass up.
I am an unconditional of your Art since I discovered you in 2014 by chance of my research on Etsy for new projects. I think I had to buy all your collections whether on Etsy and lately on your site.
But I think you do not have to sleep a lot at night 🙂 so you are creative 🙂
Too bad that you are so far (I live in France) otherwise I would have liked a meeting just to see with your eyes your magnificent creations.
Continue to make me dream Jen.
I sent you a private message.
