Hello everyone! Enza here with you today to share a spread in my traveler’s notebook using the gorgeous Hey, Sugar January kit.
I love to be able to scrapbook on a smaller scale from time to time. It is easier and lot faster. When I first started using a traveler’s notebook, I was a little uncertain on what I wanted to focus on. I knew I didn’t want to use it as a journal or a diary. As I create full page layouts and Project Life spreads for our albums, I didn’t see the point in replicating the same idea in a smaller format. That said, I still wanted to tell our story in it. I decided to pick one picture (and only one) every month, and jot down some thoughts about it.
This picture was taken back in November, when we spent a fun day downtown Seattle playing tourists. I love the expression on our daughter’s face. It tells so much about her personality. Sweet, smart, and a little mischievous 😉
Since the pages in my traveler’s notebook are an off-white color, the first thing I did was cut out some white cardstock to cover them up with. I then fussy cut some flowers out of the Crate Paper Adore You 12×12 patterned paper and disposed them in a diagonal across the two pages.
I love the bits and pieces that come with this collection. Tags, hearts, acetate pieces are perfect to embellish your pages. I also added some of the exclusive January printables available to subscribers.
The little pocket was created by hand-stitching a card that came in the ephemera pack to a piece of patterned paper from the 6×6 paper pad (add-on for this month), while for my journaling tag I used the fun Crate Paper Lovely 12×12 patterned paper.
A few more embellishments completed the spread.
