Field Notes: Explore

Hello friends! Maryám here with you today to share a two-page spread of my Traveler’s Notebook. First of all I wanted to remember you that we opened a new Traveler’s Notebook kit subscription, so If you didn’t see it before, you can read all the details here.

Okay, after of that introduction… Here are my pages:

On the right side I put a strip of one of the papers of the kit, I added a flower and I also put my journalinig.

On the left side I put a photo of a botanical garden that we visited the last summer, and behind the photo I put some leaves cut with my Silhouette Cameo. They look super cute on the page, I like the texture that they add to the page.

And for my title I used a word that came in my kit.

I hope you liked these pages, and don’t forget to check out the new Traveler’s Notebook subscription, the kit that is coming are just beautiful!

See you tomorrow,

Field Notes – My Personal Journal (TN)

field-notes

Hello there!

I hope you are enjoying all the projects that the beautiful April kit, “JELLYBEAN”, and that they are inspiring you to use every single piece included in the kit.  The papers, embellishments, and the exclusive printables are so versatile, and perfect to use in all kinds of paper projects.

I have kept a journal throughout my entire life.  The format has transformed to the years, but once I discovered Traveler’s Notebooks a few years back, i have been hooked on them.    I try at best to make at least a daily entry on my journal, it works as my PL format.  This month, I have loved adding bits and pieces from the JELLYBEAN kit to my journal.

This month’s challenge sponsor is Latina Crafter; their stamps are just gorgeous.  I was lucky to receive this beautiful wood veneer stamp  (MUCHAS GRACIAS,  LATINA CRAFTER), which i used to create the background on one of my TN entries.

 

CK_Nathalie DeSousa_April2017_My Personal Journal-4

 

Using archival ink, I stamped then Latina Crafter’s image at opposite edges of the TN’s page, and a small piece of white card stock.  Once I placed the picture on the opposite page,  I used the stamp card stock to create a small arrow that tied the two pages together.  The PL cards included in the kit, and the exclusive printables are just perfect when documenting in this format.

My next entry is all about my kid’s first day of Spring Break ( we survived!!).  For this entry, I  used the small scraps of the Oh My Heart paper #  to cover one side of the page.   The large PL card, included in the Jellybean kit, was then glued across both sides of the TN – I simply cut the card with the paper trimmer, and glued it to the TN-.

Once again, I used this month’s exclusive printables to add interest to the page, and the small letter alphas from Elle’s Studio, included in the kit, are just the perfect size for this entry.  I am always trying new ways to journal on my pages; this time, I chose to write along the edge of the page!.

 

CK_Nathalie DeSousa_April2017_My Personal Journal-6

 

Finally, the last entry i am sharing with you, is just a fitting example of how versatile the  JELLYBEAN kit is,  and how easy is to document in a TN format.   Once again, I picked  the last piece of the Impossible paper -included in the kit-, and covered one side of the TN.  The beautiful ephemera pieces from the Make Your Mark collection  serve as the sentiment and embellishment on the page.

 

CK_Nathalie DeSousa_April2017_My Personal Journal-7

 

 

By using the TN on a landscape format, I was left with  a large space to add my journal lines (this entry is all about me, and how happy my DSLR makes me!).  I balanced the page, by adding some of the ephemera pieces, and a sentiment fussy cut from the cut-apart paper from the JELLYBEAN kit.

I hope these all serve as inspiration to take a look at Traveler’s Notebooks, and how to use the JELLYBEAN kit when documenting in this format.  TNs are versatile, and work for many different types of memory  keeping/ planner/ art journal.   Make sure to check the Clique Kits  store to find the kit, and the many TN kits they are always curating.

As always i am just a comment away, if you have any questions on how any of these came together.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey loves! Stephanie Gold here with a Traveler’s Notebook layout made with this month’s Jellybean Kit that’s speaking to my soul right now. 😉

IMG_3848

So I was cracking up as I made this because my hidden journaling was basically all about YOLO… wait… don’t click exit! I swear there’s a point to this haha. Now I am NOT one to use that saying as it sounds ridiculous to me in all honesty however, I find I actually appreciate it’s sentiment in certain terms.

IMG_3850

I want to live my life to it’s fullest and not dull it down just to play it safe. I’m not saying we should all go out there and start base jumping and cliff diving (although if that’s your thing, go for it!), I just want to encourage all of you to get out of your comfort zones and do something you normally wouldn’t for the sake of being courageous, outgoing and adventurous in your goals!

So go out there today and be a life warrior!! If I can support you, let me know how! Much love all!

Xo, Stephanie

Field Notes – Colorful and fun

field-notes

Hello Clique friends. I’m back today to share a couple of spreads in my traveler’s notebook. The super fun March Play kit was perfect to give my pages lots of color and a happy vibe.

march-kit

For my first spread, I decided to use a couple of pictures of my daughter playing in the snow.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_Spread1

I always start by covering the pages with cardstock, as it makes them thicker and more difficult to tear. I picked white for the left side and patterned paper from the Little by little collection for the right side. I then fussy cut two of the wreaths out of the Clever Little Fox paper to use them as a base for my photos.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_CloseUp2For the opposite side, I went for a tone-on-tone look. Ephemera pieces and stickers match the colors in the background. To bring the spread together I used a branding strip across the bottom of both pages.

My second spread took a little bit more time as I decided to add some stitching to it.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_Spread2

One of the patterned papers in the kit has several words in different colors that I absolutely love. I picked the ‘heart’ one, as the color matched my daughter’s shirt in the picture. I glued the letters onto the polka dot patterned paper and stitched around them using the same color thread. The texture it adds is what I was going for. I completed the page with some ephemera pieces.

egudor_March14_FieldNotes_CloseUp3

For the right side of the spread, I went for a simple look and only used a few embellishments that matched the colors on the opposite side.

I hope you felt inspired today to use the beautiful March Play kit in your traveler’s notebook. The Clique store has a lot of supplies to make your spreads come together quickly and beautifully. I can’t say enough how amazing the kits are each month. They are very versatile and can be used for a variety of projects.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Traveler’s Notes: My Journal

field-notes

 

Hello there!,

Hope you all are doing well.  Today  i am bringing you a few entries of my personal journal (aka my Traveler’s notebook).

march-kit

 

This month’s PLAY kit was ideal for documenting  my every day happenings.  The kit is so well put together, it makes is so easy to work with.

 

ck_-nathalie-desousa_march-2017_-myjournal-4

 

For my first entry (as you all know by now, we have a new member in our family), I used the  PLAY kit to create an entry of the first picture of my cousin holding his baby.  For this i started by using Crate Paper’s Oasis collection stamp, that i picked up in the Clique Store and has sold out-  with some archival black ink.  I simply drew some slanted lines with a 2h pencil on one side of the spread, and stamped the word HELLO along the line.   Once i was about to finish stamping  the page, I simply switched the letters to read BABY, and the color of the ink, and finished stamping the page. There is also a bit of shimmering watercolor in some of the words.

ck_-nathalie-desousa_march-2017_-myjournal-3

 

For the opposite side, i simply cut a piece of paper from the kit to match the angle of the stamped words, and placed the picture in the middle of the page.  All the embellishments come from the PLAY kit, and from the Clique Store (there you can always find paper supplies to complement their kits).

 

ck_-nathalie-desousa_march-2017_-myjournal-5

 

The next entry i am sharing shows just how versatile the PLAY kit can be.   A few weeks ago, it snowed heavily here in Toronto; that means play time for my kids and the littles.

 

ck_-nathalie-desousa_march-2017_-myjournal-7

 

I dug into my stash, and pulled this spotted vellum that reminded me of snow falling.  Using the Very Merry cut file from the Cut Shoppe, the snow flake was cut;  a simple font was used to cut the word snow.   The paper was then trimmed to fit in the insert, and a half an inch was added to the left side of the page.  The word JOY was formed with the Shimelle’s Little by Little collection foam thickers  -available in the Clique Store-.

 

ck_-nathalie-desousa_march-2017_-myjournal-8

 

I folded the extra half inch of the vellum, and glued it under the large picture of my niece and nephew walking in the snow.   The  opposite side of the page was created by using the b side of one of the papers in the PLAY kit (the dots continue the theme of the spread).   I pulled my type writer to add the journal in one of the  pieces from the ephemera pack included in the kit, and glue them to the page.  Here is a quick look at the picture  behind the vellum.

 

 

ck_-nathalie-desousa_march-2017_-myjournal-9

one of the CK exclusive printables was perfect to complete this spread.

 

Thanks for stopping by today,  I hope this inspires you to check the  new Traveler’s Notebook kits that are available in the  Clique store.   I have journaled my entire life, but love the format of the TN, and Clique Kits monthly kits make it so easy to add my daily entries.   Remember to always check the Clique Store, there is always new items in the shelves that quickly sell out (just like the stamp used in this  spread).

Remember you can always reach me if you have any questions on how this came together.

Til next time!

Field Notes-Memories From This Adventure

field-notes

Hello Clique friends!  Candace with you today to share a fun traveler’s notebook spread using the limited edition kit featuring  Crate Paper’s Oasis collection.

I am in love with this little kit!  So beautiful!  If you missed out on the kit this time around make sure to stay in the know on our Clique Kits Facebook page.  We post there first when limited edition kits are available!  There are still a few add ons available in the shop here.

MarchTN1.jpg

I set up my spread in the cute insert that came in the kit.  For this spread I wanted to document the weekend our family spent in California at the beach.  It was a magical weekend and I wanted my spread to reflect that.

MarchTN2.jpg

For the main focal point of my spread I created a full page photo of one of my littles looking at the beach.  To add my journaling and a few additional photos I created an envelope out of the 6×6 paper.

MarchTN4.jpg

I cropped the pictures down to 3×4 to tuck into the envelope.  On each photo I added a little word strip and a cute puffy sticker.  I included a few of the exclusive journal cards in the kit to tell my story.

MarchTN3.jpgMarchTN7.jpg

To accent the large photo I added a few more word strips and a geo tag.  So many special memories from this trip!  Magic…I am so glad I got all our moments recorded.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope this inspired you to document your magic moments in your travelers notebook.  Let me know if you have any questions!

Have a wonderful day & create memories!

Field Notes-You Do You

field-notes

Hello again friends!  Candace with you today to share a travelers notebook spread using the breathtaking February kit.  In case you haven’t seen the kit yet here is a peek at all the goodies in the kit.  You can check out the kit and the extras in the shop here.

For my spread I knew I wanted to use the “you do you” acrylic piece as the focal point and theme to drive my spread.  With all the light and whimsical colors in the kit I knew that creating a spread doing a little personal reflection would be perfect.

youdoyou1.jpg

For the right side of my spread I paired the acrylic piece with a photo of me from January.  To add a little more color to the acrylic piece I backed it with a few different papers from the kit.  I simply glued down the acrylic to the paper then used sharp, fine tip scissors to cut around the acrylic.

youdoyou2.jpg

For the left side of the spread I needed to create a home for my journaling.  To create the pocket for my tags I stitched down an embossed piece of vellum on three sides.  I tucked a few tags from the kit along with a few tags I created from coordinating patterned paper.

youdoyou4.jpg

To add a little light embellishment I added a flower from the die cut pack and a little gold tab on the edge of the journaling pocket.

youdoyou3.jpg

I love the final spread!  I think it is so important to take the time to include yourself in your scrapbooking.  Years from now I know I will love reading about my thoughts and feelings at this point in my life.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Don’t forget to share you travelers notebook spreads with us in The Clique group on Facebook!  We love to see all your creations.

And don’t forget…You Do You!
