One of the cruiseline's craft projects offered is to decorate a blank journal. You get the journal, three sheets of cardstock, stickers, tags, ribbon, photo corners, and the use of a few rubber stamps.
I chose to be unconventional and used the photo corners on the cardstock and mounted it to the covers of the journal. Then I attached ribbon 'handles' to the unbound edge on both front and back. I tore out sections of the third piece of cardstock to use as travel labels, and attached tags to the handles.
The result was a 'suitcase' style journal.
I applied stickers and stamps to both sides for a bit more decoration, and a few of their paper-clips at the top edge.
