Everyday Adventures-Inspired with Tessa Buys

We are loving the feedback that we’ve received from the Everyday Adventures Mini Album Class, and today we’re lucky to have Tessa Buys back on the blog with us to share more of her class-inspired traveler’s notebook; as well as give us tips on how to use up the paper scraps from the Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack in our mini albums!
Hello, Elle’s Studio friends! I’m back with more pages from my Everyday Adventures Mini Album Class-inspired traveler’s notebook. In my first post, I shared how I used the Everyday Adventures Product Bundle to create pages about my adventures in being a mom, and today I’m sharing how to use every scrap to create unique pages.

I love the Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack. It’s a great size for a travelers notebook, and after you’ve trimmed the papers to size, the leftover pieces can creatively be used to create more layouts. For example, I had two narrow pieces left in these teal polka-dot and gray star papers. I cut each one into strips and then overlapped the strips across the page spread, bordering my photo.

On this page spread, I used more leftover strips to create side borders. The wide striped pattern of the paper made this technique especially fun.


On these pages, I didn’t use a bit of patterned paper. Instead, I aligned all my photos to the center and filled in spaces with labels, die cuts, and a border Live Laugh Love Puffy Sticker cut in half.


I love the  Live Laugh Love Washi Tape Stickers, and to make them go farther, I cut them into pieces. Some I cut in half long-wise to create narrow strips.

Layered together, and stamped over with the class’ exclusive stamp set, The grouping of tapes make a great top and bottom border on this page.

Thanks for checking out more of my Everyday Adventures-inspired travelers notebook and have a creative day!
