I am a smidge obsessed with charms for my journal cover Roll Eyes
Along with the first "happy girl" charm, I've since added an Erlenmeyer flask, a tiny owl and a mini schnauzer. 
There is one more in the works...but I'm capping it at 5 charms. 
Or at the very least, I'm not gonna attach more than 5 charms at any given time  Tongue




And I've also made 4 additional notebook inserts and a few more folders. 
Nothing terribly exciting, but I'm stocking up on basics for my journal Cheesy

Here's a picture of my scrappy traveler's journal Smiley



More details in this post.

I need more accessories for it!   A pen holder, more notebook inserts, charms...the list goes on.

5  Scrappy traveler's journal cover, notebook inserts, etc. in Quilting: Completed Projects by loves2experiment on: April 30, 2019 05:02:15 AM
In preparation for my upcoming travels, I wanted some sort of journal to keep track of things.
Enamored by the traveler's journal flexible style of being able to combine different notebook inserts and pockets, I set out to make a scrappy fabric cover.
It was fun raiding my stash of fabric scraps for choice bits (pdx carpet fabric!!!).  I already had the right interfacing., gromets, etc. I needed for my project.  The only thing I purchased was the black elastic cording  Roll Eyes         
 
Here's the completed front cover.  And yes, there's a clip on charm as well!  I will probably make/add other charms later because they're fun to make.



Back view of cover...



Folder insert for storing papery bits that I might save during my travels.



Covers of some of the notebook inserts I assembled (everything came from my stash).



View of inside pages of one of the notebook inserts.



One more notebook insert...




Thanks for checking out my project! Smiley

Details of swap:
(much love to the fab organizers of previous rounds - SonjaBoo, Smmarrt and LimerRiot Kiss)

For this swap, youll decorate an envelope (something around a 6"x9"ish) in the way of your choice paint it, mix-media it up, add fabric, whatever inspires you. (Psst...don't forget you need to leave white spots or labels for your addresses!)  
In the envelope, youll include five (5) small but handmade (or hand-altered) embellishments or crafting doo-dads for your partner to enjoy.
Extras are not necessary, but feel free to chat with your partner if you want to send more than the minimum requirement of five (5) small items.



What are crafting doo-dads, you ask?
Handmade stickers, cards, altered tags, crafty ephemera, glue stencils, inchies, altered paperclips, ATCs, hand-cut stencils, paper feathers, paper flowers, altered buttons, etc.  Many other ideas not even mentioned here!  Use your imagination...as long as someone can craft with it and you made it, it's good.  

Here are a few links for inspiration!
