Welcome back to the blog today, where you’ll find new inspiration using our May 2020 kit and extras from design team member Stacie Watson! Stacie is using a traveler’s notebook to record one of her favorite family members—take a look to see how she cleverly used our new product to create it!
Hey hey, scrappy friends! It’s Stacie back today to share a new traveler’s notebook spread with you, created using the May 2020 kit and add-ons . I love that there are so many options that you can do with traveler’s notebooks. You can document the day to day or decide to do monthly spreads. You can document a trip or vacation. You could have a notebook for each person in your family, or my case our furry four legged family member! I’m still using a traveler’s notebook to document the first year with our newest puppy and I love being able to flip back through it to see how she has grown in just the few short months we’ve had her. The traveler’s notebook size is also a great way to help you use up your monthly kits and add-ons. Just take a look:
I started this traveler’s notebook spread knowing that I wanted to use circles in some way, I also wanted to use the dog paw stamp from the Currently Icon Stamp, and I wanted to use scrap pieces of paper that were laying on my desk. I chose a piece of patterned paper from the Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack and cut it down to size. I then punched four holes into it with a circle punch.
Once the holes were punched, I backed two of the holes with patterned paper from the Flourish Paper Stack and added the “here & now” acetate shape from the Go See Do Acetate Die Cuts set to the top circle. I then repeatedly stamped the dog paw stamp from the Currently Icon Stamp onto a piece of white cardstock before backing it behind one of the circles. To finish off the fourth hole, I once again used the circle punch on the “the best” journaling tag from the May Kit. After all of the circles were backed, I adhered it to the right side of the notebook.
On the left, I used the “all the details” journaling tag from the May Kit and printed my photo to size. On the top of the page, I used die cuts from the May Kit. I then stamped “life is good” using the Currently Icon Stamp. To finish off the spread, I added Icon Chipboard Stickers and Puffy Heart Stickers. I printed out my journaling and adhered it to fill in the blank spaces.
This spread came together quickly and I love how it turned out! I hope it inspires you and makes you want to use your goodies! Thanks for stopping by!
