Making Merry in a Traveler’s Notebook with Marsha Farris

Hey, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Marsha here, sharing a fun traveler’s notebook layout I created for my 2020 December album! The November kit and add-ons were perfect for this spread documenting a fun tradition of making homemade ornaments with my youngest son. 

Supplies | November 2022 KitLabels, Ledgers and Tabs Die CutsHoliday Frame Stickers, Tiny Christmas Hearts and Stars Puffy Stickers, Twinkle Paper Stack, Holiday Fun Stamp, Christmas Phrases Stamp, Title Builder Vol. 5 The Merriest Stamp, Nesting Tags Metal Die

To begin the layout, I trimmed white cardstock to use as the background. I selected a green dot patterned paper from the Twinkle Paper Stack and trimmed it to span across both pages. Next, I layered frames from the new Holiday Frame Stickers over my photos. I love the fun designs in this sticker set that are great for highlighting pictures on a spread. Then, I selected two pocket tags from the November Kit to use on the layout. I added ribbon from my stash to the top of the first tag and embellished the other with a die cut from the November Kit and a star sticker from the Tiny Christmas Hearts & Stars Puffy Stickers.

To create the title, I stamped the word “Christmas” from the Title Builder Vol. 5 The Merriest Stamp with dark green ink and completed the title with a stamp from the Christmas Phrases Stamp and black ink. The die cuts from the November Kit were great for decorating the layout. 

To further embellish the spread, I added stamping on some of the die cuts from the Labels, Ledgers and Tabs Die Cuts with the Holiday Fun Stamp and Christmas Phrases Stamp. I then used the Nesting Tags Metal Die and Twinkle Paper Stack to create a tag. I printed my journaling on the tag, added a bit of stamping with the Holiday Fun Stamp, and tucked it behind the patterned paper layer. To complete the spread, I sprinkled in a few stars from the  Tiny Christmas Hearts & Stars Puffy Stickers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I have given you some ideas for using the November kit and add-ons in your traveler’s notebook! Happy crafting!
