DIY Traveler’s Notebook Insert Cover Tutorial | Washi Wednesday

Hey everyone! Sami here with another Washi Wednesday Tutorial.

I recently made a cover for my Traveler’s Notebook insert and I wanted to share it with you. I really loved how last week’s clean and simple thank you cards turned out with the Chevron Washi that was part of the March Embellishment Kit and Planner Kit. I wanted to take that a step further by making a TN notebook cover.

Lately I have been using a Freckled Fawn Sleek TN in the color Rich Teal. I just LOVE the texture on this TN. It’s gorgeous!

Here is the quick video showing how I made my cover:

I hope you enjoyed today’s quick tutorial.

Have a lovely day!

Sami

Project Life Week 6 Process by Jen

Hey there! It’s Jen Schow here to share a Project Life spread with you using the March embellishment kit. Something that I’m loving lately is a lot of photos + just a pop of color and I love how using a few simple embellishments really helps them shine.

I used the yellow acrylic “adventure” on my date card and a little blue puffy star above it. I love the texture that adding a staple to a puffy sticker gives.

To bring the blue and yellow to the other side of the spread, I added a little yellow arrow sticker and another puffy star to the top of my journaling card. So very simple, but I think it really lets the photos and those few embellishments shine.

If you want to see how it all came together, you can watch the process video.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Don’t forget about our design team call! Click here for all the details.

XO,
Jen

Adventure Layout by Megan

Hello everyone! It’s Megan here today to share a fun multi-photo layout with you!

As soon as I saw the acrylic word “adventure” in this month’s March 2017 Embellishment Kit, I knew I wanted to make a page about my kids playing at a cool climbing park for the first time!

The kit is great for travel, but you can use it for hometown adventures, exploring, and outdoor activities just as easily.

I knew I wanted to include a lot of photos on this page, tucking embellishments into corners and empty spaces, so I played around with the photo sizes on a digital 12×12 canvas before printing the photos on letter sized photo paper and cropping them–that way I knew that the layout would work!

I loved adding the title with the foam letters and using it with the journaling to create a sort of photo corner framing a photo. I also slipped in a label sticker with the date.

The wood explore chip and the heart clip were great additions to this empty space left by the photo configuration! I attached the heart clip with embroidery floss, which helped get in more of the seafoam green color of the title.

I wanted to create a visual triangle with that seafoam color, so I added a clip under the upper right photo, attached with a glue dot, to make another photo corner. Clips can be very useful for attaching things (I love them for memorabilia!), but it’s fun to use them decoratively sometimes too.

The adventure acrylic word, a line of puffy star stickers, and a strip of washi tape from an older Freckled Fawn kit finished this layout off!

If you use the March 2017 Freckled Fawn Embellishment Kit, I’d love to see how you do! What would you document with these embellishments?

XO,

Megan

Exploring Winter Feelings by Kristin

Hi, Kristin here,

I’ve been using a Traveler’s Notebook as my everyday documentation project for 2017. I’ve been creating double-page spreads for whatever everyday stories are calling to me. With this spread, I document how winter is making me feel using the March 2017 Embellishment kit.

February is the hardest month for me personally. It’s always so cold, it still gets dark super early, and spring doesn’t really seem to be in sight just yet.

I used my Polaroid Zip printer to print our a 2×3 photograph that I stuck down in the bottom left hand corner of the spread. I journaled next to the photo, and left the right side of my spread to hold the title.

XO,
Kristin

Exploration Planner Spread by Kim

Hi, it’s Kim here!

I have recently switched over my “to-go” calendar to be housed in my Freckled Fawn Travelers Notebook.  There is a week overview and each day has it’s own timed daily in these inserts which makes it really fun to deck out my planner!

Using the March kit, I’ve done the whole week exploration style with the wonderful mapped arrows and bright orange washi tape.

I loved the abundance of tag stickers and used them along the spine to house the big boys practice schedule.

On the next page I used that arrow washi and doubled it up on the bottom of the page.  Gives it a little grounding and dimension with it in two layers.  I have also cut  the square in half and placed it on the edges of the column for focus on some FF to-do’s.

The large puffy stickers add a bit of bold pop along with the arrow bleeds to house more list making.

I again used some sticker bleeds in combination to the regular tags and arrows.

Cutting the single piece of washi into columns made the design very different, don’t you think?

And for my weekend vibes, I used the wood veneer frames but cut off the frame part.  I did rub each piece with brown stamp ink to disguise the natural cut marks.

With the arrows directing focus on the tasks at hand, how could I be lead astray.

Thank for joining me today here on the blog!

Go See Explore Layout by Soraya

Hello! Soraya here.

Today I have a layout to share that I made using the March Embellishment kit.

I love every bit of the kit so I decided to fill the right side of the layout with embellishments! I also used some elements from past kits to embellish more and give a vertical sense of movement to it.

“Go + See + Explore” is made with a mix of textures like: vellum alpha stickers, puffy stickers and acrylic word!

I hope you enjoyed my layout today. Thanks for stopping by!

XO,

Soraya

On these cards, the March chevron washi is the star of the show. I absolutely love this month’s washi and I knew I wanted to make some cards with it because it’s so graphic & perfect for clean and simple cards.

These cards are so easy to whip up in a large batch to always have thank yous on hand. Enjoy!

And that’s it! I made both cards in about 5 minutes. So easy!

I hope you enjoyed today’s quick tutorial. Have a happy & crafty day!

Planning with Kristin

Hi all! Kristin here.

I’ve got a planner spread to share. I decorated my week with the Freckled Fawn March Planner kit.

This is my Get to Work book. It’s my personal/work planner. Each week I write the things that are coming up, my daily schedule, and a few weekly to-do lists. The label stickers make it easy to segment out the week.

In addition to being super fun to look at, using different colored labels makes it easy to glance down at the planner real quick and see everything that needs to get done.

XO,
Kristin

It’s Cuddle Time Layout by Soraya

Hi everyone! Soraya here with a project I made using the March Embellishment Kit.

Even if there was no pink in this kit, I HAD TO add some with papers and inks (in the background). I love how the contrast between the adventure colors of the kit and the soft pink gives more light and sweetness to the whole design!

I used some past kit items on this layout along with the March items.

Thanks for stopping by today to see my layout.

XO,

Soraya
