Spring is a time when we usually document getting outdoors after the thaw of winter, but in this season, it may be our only escape! Get outside, and don’t forget to document these moments, too! That’s what design team member Katarina Prevendarova did in a new traveler’s notebook spread that she’s sharing with us today, using our March kit and extras! Let’s take a look at what she created!
Hey friends! It’s Katarina here and today I am going to share with you a traveler’s notebook spread documenting what we need and enjoy the most these days—time spent out in the fresh air. To create it I used the gorgeous March 2020 kit and add-ons, perfect for any outdoor or spring project.
Supplies | March 2020 Kit, Go See Do Acetate Die Cuts, March Label Stickers, Black Typewriter Cardstock Alphabet Stickers, Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, Title Builder Vol. 4 Puffy Stickers, Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack
We are very lucky to live close to a forest which means that it’s really easy to get to a place with fresh air and almost no people—the best place for our son to spend time, play and explore nature. I love this photo of him admiring a huge tree.
I decided to create with circles because, you can never go wrong with circles, right? I chose three main colors: green, coral and purple, with pops of black. On the left side, I took my big circle punch and punched three circles into a piece of white, textured cardstock, backing them with three pieces of patterned paper from the Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack. This is always a good way to create little nests for your title, embellishments or journaling.
The top circle holds my title, for which I used the word “fresh” from the Title Builder Vol. 4 Puffy Stickers and the Black Typewriter Cardstock Alphabet Stickers. Oh, how I love this font! I embellished the other two circles using the die cuts from the March 2020 Kit and a Go See Do Acetate Die Cut that I tucked under the white cardstock. To emphasize the circle pattern, I chose two circle labels from the March Label Stickers and put them slightly off the edge on both sides of the page. I added a bunch of little dots in corresponding colors from the Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers to add some dimension and interest.
On the right side of the spread I decided to use two 3″ x 4ʺ pockets. To stay cohesive, I continued with the same colors as the left side. Two of the journaling tags from the March Kit were perfect for this purpose. I used the green tag to back my photo, over which I layered the “Let’s Go” Go See Do Acetate Die Cut and a purple heart from the Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers. I also stapled the “favorite” banner die cut from the March Kit.
To better connect the left and right sides, I used the floral journaling tag and repeated the circle element. I cut out the “Love This” title with a stitched circle die and raised it with a piece of adhesive foam. Next I embellished the tag with a tiny coral heart and a green label sticker with date. To bring the stitched effect to both parts of the spread, I added dots around each of the big circles with my black gel pen.
This spread came together so easily with all of these beautiful products and I love how it turned out. I hope that I have inspired you to use the March 2020 monthly kit and add-ons in your travelers notebook. Have fun creating!
