Hello! Today on my blog I’m sharing a layout that I made in my traveler’s notebook using The Stamps of Life April 2021 card kit. Before I share the details, if you are not familiar with traveler’s notebooks, I encourage you to watch my introductory video about traveler’s notebooks below.
I am really getting into using traveler’s notebooks for memory keeping. If you are like me, and have always wanted to take the plunge into scrapbooking, but may find that a 12 x 12 layout is very intimating, I suggest starting with a traveler’s notebook because it’s a much smaller scale and great place for beginners to start.
On the left side of the page, I used the pattern paper from the card kit and cut it to 4″ x 6 1/2″. I also cut a piece of Mint Chip solid cardstock to 4″ x 1 3/4″. I adhered both pieces to the page in my traveler’s notebook. I used the birdbath, birds, and butterflies from the Remember This paper pad. If you don’t have the paper pad, you can use the birdbath2stamp set and stamp the images. I also used the Remember This word die and stamp sentiment from the card kit. I stamped four of the bushes from the MoreBirdbath2Stamp set and colored them with my Copic markers. I fussy cut the bushes and added them to the layout.
On the opposite page, I used a piece of the blue paper from the paper pad which measures 2″ x 6 1/2″. I also used a piece of the Cherry solid cardstock which measures 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″. I layered a 3″ x 4″ photo on top and added the chipboard word “Smile” along with a butterfly and bird.
