Traveler’s Notebook: An Introduction and my July Set-Up!!!!

Hi you guys and welcome to my newest adventure in scrapbook-land, my Traveler’s Notebook!!!!! I had a bit of an A-HA moment about a month ago and realized how cool these notebooks are. Have a look at my first process video and how I decided to set up my notebook for the month of July:

That was a long video, I know, but my hope is that it was filled with information and ideas and some other resources as you go about your own creative process! I have just a few photos to show you. I decided to begin a traveler’s notebook when I was researching ways to document our upcoming trip to Charleston. Well, sometimes research leads you somewhere and you never are really the same. That is how I feel about my traveler’s notebook. My world has been forever changed and how I journal and how I document my life just got interesting!

Traveler%27s Notebook Intro

I chose to order the Webster’s Pages Color Crush notebook, and I ordered three inserts from Yellow Paper House to go inside. I have added a tassel from Dear Lizzy and a copper medallion from Tim Holtz to the little tag that came with the notebook. Each tag says a different thing, and mine says Planner Girl.

This is what my notebook looks like when it is opened. I have a few shaped paper clips, my journaling strips from Ali Edwards Believe Story Kit, and two of the sticky notes from Fancy Pants Attwell collection. You can see my inserts which have now been covered with papers from my Gossamer Blue June kits, namely Pinkfresh Studio and Simple Stories. The washi tape and black summer clip are from Freckled Fawn’s June planner kit.

My first insert is my planner insert, and it is a Daily planner from Yellow Paper House. This is what it looks like when you open it. The stamps are from Gossamer Blue and Kerri Bradford. The washi tapes are from Hobby Lobby.

The daily planner insert has a month view calendar in it, but I needed a little more space so I created my own and adhered it on top of the existing calendar. Nothing fancy, just a simple Excel spreadsheet formatted to fit across the two fold-outs.

This calendar is mostly used to help me plan my blog posts and videos, so I can keep up with what I plan to publish and what has been accomplished on each release.

I don’t intend to show you each page, because that could be rather tedious (!) but these are a few that I created.

My goal was to add a few washi tapes and some watercolors just to add a little color and visual interest.

Throughout the month I will be adding my daily task lists and some journaling as well to complete the pages.

My plan each month is to show you a set-up post like today, and then come back once the month is finished to show you how it ended up.

As I mentioned in my video today, we are going to be gone on vacation next week in Charleston, SC! So my normal videos will not be released, however I will be showing you some process videos from my Gardener’s Notebook on Tuesday and Thursday! Then I will be back the following week with a full production schedule. I hope you all have a great weekend!

See you soon,

Simple Planner Vol 04

Hi friends! I am so excited to show you my planner for this week because I have used some beautiful products from a fellow YouTuber, Aneika Walton of Fabulously Creative! I have been following her for a little while now and love all her work and talent and creativity. Please be sure to check out her Youtube channel, Etsy shop, and blog! I will link all of those up at the end. Take a look at my process video using her gorgeous products:

Before I started decorating this week’s page. I sprayed the background with Heidi Swapp gold spray and heart template. Then I set about adding some of Fabulously Creative’s stickers.

Now Fabulously Creative designs her products to use in a Kikki K planner, and mine is Heidi Swapp. That really doesn’t bother me a bit – I think if you love the products then use them up!

Simple Planner Vol 04

One of the things I love is that these stickers gave me three areas on each day. I use one area to write down our schedule that day, such as doctor appointments or lunch dates. Another area I use to jot down what blog posts are going live that day to help me plan those. The third space I can use for lists that I need to keep track of each day.

Simple Planner Vol 04

On my dashboard I like to keep my running to-do lists from week to week. These glitter stickers are perfect for that.

So much to inspire me for this week and I hope you are inspired too! Here are links to Fabulously Creative!

Simple Planner 2016 Vol. 03

Hi there! New week means new planner layout, so take a look at how I embellished my planner this week.

 

I received my Ali Edwards Project Life Storytelling kit last week and was delighted that the stamp set has the days of the week included! So I knew already I was going to use those. I had already misted the pages with my Heidi Swapp spray mist and heart stencils, which I just adore.

I chose a simple gold heart washi to embellish across the top. I also chose a thin navy washi to create the divisions between the days.

For the numbers I decided to use the Fitzgerald alpha set from Cedar Lane, and while I was pulling those I came across the word strips, so I added those in some places as well.

Thursday of this week is an important day – our son is going into the hospital for some outpatient blood work. If you are the praying type, say a few prayers and positive thoughts for him on that day! I added a few word strips on that day, just to provide some space to acknowledge that as a big day for us.

Simple Planner 2016 Vol 03

 

For my dashboard, I wanted to use these speech bubbles, they are old stickers from IKEA from last spring and I have had them laying around forever! But I thought they would be cute to write my to-do lists for this week. I added some of the word strips and stamps from Ali’s stamp set, and called it done.

Simple Planner 2016 Vol 03

 

Very quick and easy embellishing this week, and I am glad I have some pretty things to look at while we work our way through this week. I hope you have an inspired and creative week too! 

See you soon,
