Capture Your Adventures!

Hi there!

Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog today with an amazing keepsake full of beautiful photos, and lots of stamping…

Today I’m sharing my completed holiday journal from our recent adventures in Portugal. This was a real labour of love but holiday journals are so worthwhile. There is nothing better than looking back through them and revisiting awesome memories.

The following page was for our day out in Lisbon. Each day we took some  Instax photos, as well as using my usual camera.

These photos measure approx 8.5 by 5.5cm. I use the colours in my photos to inspire each page.

I first made a background using stamps from Mesh-ellaneous. These are such cool stamps!

They work perfectly with Distress oxides

I had fun playing with a background pattern.

I just had to use the camera (I know it isn’t an Instax but it’s retro enough for me) which I stamped, embossed and fussy cut out

I stamped and fussy cut out some of the paper boats from the Destination Unknown set…

I then put on my creative hat and put together my page…

Here are a few close ups…

Don’t you just love the paper boats…I do ?

Stamps Used:

Capture The Moment

Destination Unknown


This project was a real labour of love but so worth doing… there are a lifetime of memories inside my journal.

I really hope that I might have inspired you to create your own holiday journal.
You will be able to “capture the moment and make it last forever…”

Thanks as always for stopping by and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me. 

Bye for now,

Wow a real labour of love for sure… such a great way to remember wonderful memories made.
