Happy Friday! Khristina here to share a traveler's notebook layout with you that I am SUPER excited about. I am really loving the colors, little details, and themes of this month's kit for my daughter's traveler's notebook insert. If you aren't familiar with this project I'm working on, here are the basics. I have an insert that I am using just for my daughter and each spread is a letter from me to her about some part of her developing personality or some life lesson that I want to share with her. It is starting to come together and I am really pleased with it so far.
For today's spread, I wanted to talk to her about her strong heart and belief that anything is possible. My ten-year old son actually snapped this picture of her on a camping trip last weekend and it was perfect to go with this theme of dreaming big dreams and making them real. This month's collection just happened to be a perfect fit for that theme too...bonus!
I decided that I wanted to create a sort of grid layout using those adorable washi tape squares in the sticker booklet from the kit. I tried to mix them up in an interesting way so that phrases, icons, and patterns were spread out throughout the layout. I also mixed them up to spread out the colors. Adding a tiny strip of patterned paper along the top of the layout really tied all of those colors together.
Adding a few little embellishments including some of the puffy sticker hearts and some of the washi strips were the best final touches. I added my signature letter to my daughter and the spread was complete. I adore working in the traveler's notebook format because the layouts just seem to flow and come together quickly. This kit is just perfect for that format because each little element makes such a big impact.
I would love it if you would also stop by and check out the process video where I talk even more about my design decisions and how this particular spread came together. Enjoy and happy crafting! I hope you get to create this weekend....
