Hey scrappy nerds, Gisele here with a tutorial on a Traveler’s Notebook. Now you may be wondering why I have December Daily in my title. Let me just say, December is always a very busy month and keeping up with a December Daily is sometimes challenging to find time to document. You might feel guilty that you started one and feel overwhelmed that you are falling behind. Scrapbooking is supposed to be fun right, this might be a way to document December in a faster and easier way. It might be what a newbie would feel more comfortable with or for a seasoned scrapbooker.
For this Traveler’s notebook, I am using the Crate paper FALALA collection that we have in the store.
Yes adding pages or inserts could be a challenge, but I added a pocket to one of my pages and put a journaling tag.
Opening the inside of the Traveler’s Notebook, I look at it as a square page and looked at it as a layout.
Using the papers, and embellishments from the FALALA line was fun. I wanted to add a little glitter so that lovely FALALA was the embellishment for me.
Also, I took out a mini punch and added a tree banner with some floss from my stash. Used the hole reinforcers from a SNAP planner from Simple Stories to the tag.
It was all about getting the right tree for the theme of these pages.
I clustered the enamel shaped stickers together in a grouping
To add layers to the right page I cut the tree ephemera in half in slipped it behind other layers of the photo and papers.
To get some journaling in, I created a tag that I inserted in a glacene pocket. You could create your own with some parchment paper, or create a pocket with some of the papers in the collection. I used a circle punch to create a detail in that pocket. To attach the floss to the tag, I staple it with Tim Holtz Tiny attacher to add some more texture. Also, the floss in tag repeats from the banner as well. JOY is an ephemera piece and was ideal for the page.
Adding some enamel stars from the collection and that gorgeous enamel car sticker at the bottom repeats the colours and makes it more cohesive. The bird upper right of the left page also goes well with all the other enamel shape stickers. I repeated the gold on the right page by placing slipping in a gold star on the partial tree.
And voila, that’s my example of a Traveler’s Notebook for you. A few more layers behind the photo and some journaling word stickers…
I had a lot of fun creating this for you. I hope you like it and it brings you joy and maybe an alternative to a December Daily. Don’t forget to check the Scrapbook Nerd store for this and all scrappy needs and wants.
