Hello Clique Friends!

I hope you all had a great Christmas!,  and are getting everything ready to receive the New Year.

Today, I will share with you a few entries of my traveler’s book (also known as my personal journal) created with the beautiful January kit, “Hey Sugar”.  This kit is so gorgeous, and full of beautiful papers, and colorful add ons.  It is perfect to document all those loved holiday memories.

I don’t know about you, but i love coffee.  During the holiday season, I am partial to the Starbucks’s Peppermint Mocha; needless to say, i had to add an entry on my diary to remind me the rest of the year of this wonderful drink.

To start, i used a piece of the packaging tissue paper (the kit comes wrapped with) to cover one side of the traveler’s note book, and added a picture of my daily addiction .  The coffee cut tag comes from the 6×6 Heart Day paper pad, which is available at the Store as an add-on to this kit;  the little enamel glitter heart comes from the embelishment package in the kit.

This year Starbucks chose to have decorated cups for the Holiday season, let’s just say that the friendly staff was glad to give away many cups to one of their frequent customers.   In order to preserve my memories,  i broke apart the cup, and cut it to look like a smaller version of it.  A small hole to the top of the cut-out transform it to a tag, and i used a Sharpie marker to write some journal lines on the back of the image (the paper clip comes from my stash).  Since i also kept the cup’s sleeve, I decided to create a small pocket from one of the papers in the Simple Stories Love & Adore collection included on the Hey Sugar kit.   A little bit of hand stitching holds it in place, and the Fancy Pants “Golden Days” stamp available in the Clique store, along with some small embelishments and add ons to the kit complete the page:

The next entry on my journal, was put together while I waited for my son to finish his hour  soccer training.  I traced a large heart over the next two pages of the notebook, pierced the image, and hand stitched a large heart.  I also punched a few holes in the center spine of both pages,  and used the needle to create some string art inside the heart.

This month’s exclusives printables are perfect to use when documenting in a traveler’s notebook.  I used one of the tags to serve as a layer behind the picture of my hubby decorating gingerbread cookies.  I used another of the printables to create a small cluster on the lower left corner of the page, using the branding strips from one of the papers from the kit, a label from Simple Stories Love & Adore collection (an add on to this month’s kit), and a few pieces from last month’s kit.

Since the heart took most of the space of the page, i added my journal around the heart’s edge.  I added a few of the Fancy Pants puffy stickers included in the Hey Sugar kit to add interest on the heart.  Here is the completed page:
