Hi everyone! Khristina here and I am super excited to share a really fun traveler's notebook project with you today. For 2018, I knew that I wanted to document and write my feelings about my One Little Word in my traveler's notebook rather than trying to keep up with a whole separate album for this project. I had a lot of thoughts that I wanted to share about my word this year and how I want it to guide my life so I needed a lot of space for journaling.
I decided that in order to get all of that writing space that I needed plus keep the thoughts just a bit more private, that I would create a flap in my traveler's notebook that would open to reveal the hidden journaling below. The gorgeous pom pom trim from the main kit was the perfect addition to use as an interactive and fun piece for that flip page.
I used a photo that I had taken at Creativation of part of Tim Holtz's booth as a way to put my One Little Word--Dare--into a pictorial form. I also included a favorite quote image from Walt Disney. I decided that I wanted my word itself to take center stage so I cut out some giant letters from the patterned papers in this main kit (the Good Vibes collection) and then added some embellishment details to each page of my four page spread.
I was SUPER excited to try a couple of new things on this project. For starters, this was the first time that I have flipped by traveler's notebook sideways although I always admire other projects that I see people create in that orientation. This was also the first time creating a fold-out element in my notebook and I just love how it gave me just a bit more space and allowed for a lot of writing.
I hope that you will also stop by and check out the process video for this spread so that you can hear more about how it all came together!
I would love to hear about any interactive elements that you are using to create space for extra journaling and more storytelling in your projects...especially those words and stories that you want to keep a little more private.
