Weekend Getaway Traveler’s Notebook Spreads by Kim

Hi there, Kim here!

We recently went to Columbus Ohio for a rare weekend getaway! I wanted to document some stories from this journey and why not do it while fresh in out minds hearts- on the way home in the car!

I used the April Freckled Fawn Embellishment Kit for these three layouts as well as a new blank travelers blank notebook insert.

Which at first glance is quite bright and floral-ly but it is so modern and sharp at the same time!  (I love the polygon shapes!)

Yellow and black are surprisingly stricking with purple, a color combo I’ve not used before! Using the screen shots from Instagram Stories and Snapchat I saved them in a grid photo collage and printed them out at a Walgreen’s as we were leaving town. Not bad for $1.05! The frames and journal cards we great bases for two of the pictures.

On the next page, I used a more subdued palette, teal and red/pink.  2 more journal cards were bases, but also the sticky note paper was one as well!  I also was a bit cheeky, using one of the long enamel diamond stickers as a torch in honor of Olympian Jessie Owens.

My last double page was for the zoo.  The green journal card was perfect on an angle while using several of the chipboard “lovely day” stickers as accents.

And no, my handwriting is much to be desired for but not bad for a jiggly car with no table. Not a bad use of time, a couple of hours, plus my documenting is complete!

Thanks y’all!

XO,

Kim

TV Journal: Time Jump by Kristin

Hello Lovelies,
Kristin here! I keep a bunch of traveler’s notebooks going on at the same time. One of my favorite notebooks to grab is my Television Journal. Inside my TV journal, I art journal about whatever shows I’m watching at the moment.
In this spread, my topic was the recent time jump in one of my favorite TV shows. I used the post it notes from the April Planner Kit to create a patterned paper background for my title and journaling. I embellished the right page of the spread with some of the purple toned elements in the April kit, as they complimented both the pink tones in the graphic and the vellum purple alphas in the title.

XO,
Kristin

Adventure TN Layout by Kristin

Hi, Kristin here!

This TN spread was inspired by the ‘adventure’ acrylic piece in this month’s kit. I pulled together some supplies that coordinated with the piece, including patterned paper, and this photo that had just enough orange to work perfectly.

On this page, I documented an adventure that we had in Brooklyn with friends visiting from California. With the prompt written on the left side, I already had a title for the page. I did a little bit of journaling on top of the photograph to round out the story.

Hope you have a lovely day!

XO,
Kristin

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!

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!

Makeover Traveler’s Notebook Spread by Evelyn

Hi! Evelyn here!

Here is my make over spread that I created using March Planner and Embellishments Kits plus I used a bold word ‘ happy ‘ from a previous monthly kit.


This was a fast spread to assemble actually. I just used photos of me, one is a photo before I cut my hair, the second one is photo of the final result. I printed it out in 6x9cm. I pasted them on the right page, tilted the photos so it will show some movements. I did fussy cutting for the orange flowers from the PL cards, then tucked it behind the photos.
Actually I didn’t have to put any glue behind the photos because I used a gold paper clip. They are perfect as a decoration too.
I just wrote down a short story behind the photos in the labels.

On the left page, I just used those bold happy clear word, and pasted it right there as my big tittle. I also wrote down the name of the saloon in the pink label. Simple and meaningful.

XO,
Evelyn
