Hello Lovelies, today is a bonus layout and process video for you as I am participating in Sara Scraps’ YouTube Hop, Learning Is An Adventure! I hope you will follow along with the other ladies who are participating in this Hop over on YouTube today and have fun! You can see my video here.

I still had the die cut paper from Paige Evans Whimsical collection, so today was all about using that paper and adding some fun embellishments from my stash! My photo is from Natalie’s first day of 4th grade, so this layout will go in her personal album.

I backed the die cut paper with a pink patterned paper from Paige Evans Truly Grateful collection, and lifted up the flowers and leaves and butterflies so that would show through. The centers of these flowers make just the most fun places for embellishments, so I just brought out everything I had and started having fun! Anything that was pink, mint, yellow, or coral was fair game.

I find it so incredibly satisfying to use up embellishments like this, and it definitely adds so much interest to the page. I have used chipboard from Ali Edwards, flair from Dear Lizzy, wood buttons and floral die cuts from Truly Grateful, and acrylic star + butterfly from Dear  Lizzy as well.

My title is the 4 from Felicity Jane and the -th grade layered on top of a die cut journal spot from Truly Grateful. I added my journaling once everything was in place by writing in a curve to follow the embellishments around the page. How fun!

I just love seeing the back paper peaking through! As final touch I stamped my date and called this one done.

Important Class Announcement Plus December Traveler’s Notebook Cover Page And Reason Why!

Welcome back Lovelies! I am so excited to share my cover page and my reason why page in my December Daily Traveler’s Notebook! It is always so excited to dive right in and start working on the actual pages, even as I am still completing foundation pages and anxiously waiting for the First of December! You can watch my process video below.

Every year I get so excited to begin these pages and this year is absolutely no different. I set about to choose one traveler’s notebook to begin with and started with the cover.

This cover already lays groundwork for being incredibly simple, so simple is how I kept it. I left the transparency (Bella Blvd.) just as it was, and added a simple wooden date plus a stamped image.

The wooden numbers are from Felicity Jane from the 2017 Joy kit, the background paper is Alexandra Renke, circle chipboard embellishment Pinkfresh Studio, and Christmas stamp is from Paislee Press.

My Reason Why each year is basically always the same, even though I have so many different reasons for doing this project the most important reason is for our family. I want nothing more than our family to remember all the amazing memories we have made each year, and specifically in this season.

I always prefer to open this project with a family photo, and this is one of my all-time favorites this year. I have used a full-page photo, and since this layout has a pocket I added an Ali Edwards transparency into the pocket.

My journaling and a simple title, echoing my Reason Why, is on the facing page. I began with the star patterned paper from Pinkfresh December Days, and notice how I cut it so the largest star was slightly off-centered. This made it so the Joy die cut could actually be in the center, and then I added a few more ornaments to balance. This left a great space for my hand-written journaling.

 One final stamp at the bottom, and these pages are complete!

I have a really awesome announcement to make and I hope you will join me! You may know that I have previously created and released two memory keeping classes, called In My Pocket. I retired those for a while, but am opening those classes up again for purchase! You can click this image below to learn more.

I know that many of us are already planning and plotting our 2019 memory keeping plans, and so with that in mind I hope you will join me on a personal journey through Volume 01, beginning January 15, 2019! What does this mean? If you sign up for the Bundle, Volume 01, or if you have previously purchased Volume 01, you will receive an invitation to receive weekly emails walking through the class, lesson by lesson. This is actually really exciting and I can’t wait to share with you each week the concepts introduced in the class! If you have already purchased the class or the bundle, you don’t have to do a thing, just look for your invitation in January and sign up! If you wish to participate, be sure to purchase the class and then look for your invitation as well. Also note the special pricing, from now until December 10, 2018, all In My Pocket classes are discounted! 

See you soon,
