Hello, friends! It’s Meghann Andrew with you today! I love documenting special moments in a traveler’s notebook and the smaller scale does not limit my creativity whatsoever! Today I’m here to share a new traveler’s notebook spread that documents fun Halloween memories in my daughter’s “favorite moments of 2018” notebook using the October 2019 Kit and add-ons and the amazing Winifred Alphabet Stamp!
What a fun color scheme for Halloween, right? It’s much more colorful than the typical black and orange combination, and completely inspired by my daughter’s Sally costume. I started out adding the teal pattern from the Home Sweet Home 6 x 6 Paper Stack to the background, which I cut five triangles from and backed with colorful cardstock. Below that paper, I added a strip of black “trick or treat” washi tape for contrast before I began stamping.
Using alternating colors of black, pink, yellow, teal and orange, I added lyrics from “This is Halloween,” the main song from Nightmare Before Christmas, using the Winifred Alphabet Stamp at the base of the spread. I was able to add three lines of text, and between the words, a few candy corn and pumpkin stickers from the Halloween Puffy Stickers. I love all of the color that it adds to the base of the layout.
To make the top more interactive, and to keep a clean and simple look to the layout, I added journaling tags, adhered back-to-back from the October 2019 Kit and Halloween Journaling Tags. Using washi tape, I made the tags flippable with my 4″ x 4″ photo, so that I could fit another, smaller photo on the right side of the spread.
To bring those colorful Winifred alphas to the top of the spread, I stamped “Sally,” on the “Halloween details” tag from the Halloween Journaling Tags, then added my journaling underneath. Simple embellishment groupings included die-cuts and labels from the October 2019 Kit and stickers from the Thankful Stickers and Halloween Puffy Stickers.
The Winifred Alphabet Stamp completely made this spread, and I love the way that it paired with the amazing October 2019 Kit and add-ons to make it one of my favorite of the year in this traveler’s notebook. In any size format, the amazing Winifred Alphabet Stamp will make your projects amazing! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I can’t wait to see how you are recording your Halloween memories in a few days!
