Little Summer JOY | Traveler’s Notebook

Little Paper Projects Little Summer JOY Album 2015 | Julie Love Gagen

SO. Last year I did this project called Little Summer JOY through Little Paper Projects. I knew I was going to have a super busy summer (4 weeks of 12 hour days for yoga teacher training) and I knew that I would want to document absolutely as much of it as possible.

You can read more on the Little Summer JOY project here.

So I chose a traveler’s notebook as my format.

And I couldn’t be happier with that choice.

Why?

Because I spent the summer carrying around a set of watercolors and a pen. Occasionally, I would take some time to stamp, add photos, and decorate. But mostly, I made some pages, wrote about my days, and journaled whenever there was a story to tell.. as soon as I had the time and the inclination to do it.

It was an amazing experience and one I’m planning to repeat this year for #LittleSummerJOY.

And I never shared it here.

I have no idea why.

Seriously. No idea.

So here are some of the pages that I made. I actually made two books (if you’ve followed around here for a while, you know that I make A LOT of projects, friend, so I’m sure you’re not surprised). And I have no pictures of that other book. So I’ll get the rest, definitely before we announce the second Little Summer JOY. Which I honestly CANNOT WAIT for.

Seriously, is it summer yet?

πŸ™‚

And I can’t wait to share the rest.

    Thanks for sharing Julie! I will love to work on this type of format for this summer. I will travel next week to NY and that for sure will be part of my book. Thanks for the inspiration! I was thinking to purchase a instax printer but I am not convinced yet. Following your blog! πŸ™‚

  3. What a beautiful little book! I love the idea. I do mine in a pretty binder from Target. I’m really excited to start creating more freely.

What do you think?
