Hugs and Kisses Week: A Lovey-Dovey TN Spread with Aimee Mertell

Hi, it’s Aimee here and I’m so excited to be sharing this travelers notebook spread for the final day of Hugs & Kisses week—a week of love filled projects! For this traveler’s notebook layout, I wanted to focus on all of the pink in the January 2021 Kit and really make it feel romantic by pairing it with neutrals like grey and black. 

Supplies | January 2021 Kit, True Love Stickers, Chipboard Label Stickers, Love You Chipboard Stickers, Puffy Heart StickersAll My Heart Wood Veneers, Love You Wood Veneer, XOXO 6 x 8.5 Inch Paper Stack, My Heart Metal Die

It is seldom that my husband agrees to take photos, as he is somewhat camera shy, so when I coaxed him into taking this one I knew I had to document it in the most lovey-dovey way possible — it is February after all! I decided that the Love You Wood Veneer would be the perfect title for this spread, adding just the right amount of boldness. 

I selected a number of papers from the XOXO Paper Stack that kept to my color scheme and trimmed them into 2” x 2” squares to fill my pockets—then it was time to start embellishing! I chose pieces from the All My Heart Wood Veneers to tie in the wood tones from the other side of the spread as well as focus on black embellishments from the True Love Stickers and the Love You Chipboard Stickers

With those same pink patterned papers and the My Heart Metal Die, I was able to cut some precious hearts to nestle in next to the photo of me and my honey. I finished off with a some more sentiments and labels and of course a sprinkling of Puffy Heart Stickers

I hope this layout inspires you to create a love filled project today—whatever love looks like to you!
