When you hear "traveler's journal" what is the first thing you think of? Daily, weekly, or monthly schedules? YES! That is pretty much what everyone thinks of, but today we are going to do a little bit of a stretch and use those inserts for something else...memory keeping! We asked our designers to use them ANY WAY they want outside of scheduling...which meant adding papers, stamping, lots of luscious layers, plus flowers, and even art mediums....because our inserts can handle all that and more! Come see what they created!

"For the second insert I decorated with the Havana collection and Julie Nutting s Doll Stamps to match the sweetest PTJ ever! I layered and cut the little mermaid to create a fun page. Now I can add photos or just use for inspiration." ~ Nathalie

"I will admit I was a bit skeptical when it came to using my Prima Traveler's Journal for anything outside of schedules, but I decided to give it a go this time. Being a mixed-media lover, I thought of doing something the way I like it. So here I scrapped one of my trips in mixed-media style...in my PTJ! It was so much fun! I love how this turned out.

I have a PTJ and I love it for keeping me organized, but it has four bands....so why not slip in one of our mixed-media or watercolor paper inserts and add a bit of artistic space as well, like Riikka did on this beauty.
I LOVE that idea of playing on the go, when you are waiting in a drive-thru, at school, in a doctor's office, etc. Or I can keep an insert just for recording special moments, like a mini scrapbook! Once I fill up an insert I can easily date it and slip in a new one and I won't LOSE all of those precious moments through-out my week.
