Traveler’s Notebook Process | To The Moon And Back

18166827-2483-4A52-8F65-8E889E19B44C.jpgThe Traveler’s Notebook page I’m sharing today might just be my favorite page to date! Besides the sweet photo, the monochromatic color scheme with the little pops of light pink are making up my current favorite color combo!

Project Life Process | July Here + Now

SZ_Doc1_Detail2.jpgHappy Monday!  I hope your week is off to a great start!

Today I have a project life process video to share using Studio Calico’s latest release of the August 2018 Golden Hour kits. These kits are so gorgeous that I wanted to try to find a way to use as much product as possible on my one page.  I think I succeeded on that front!

SZ_Doc1.jpgSZ_Doc1_Detail3.jpgIf you’d like to see how this page came together feel free to check out the video below. I’ve linked all products that were used on this project at the end of the post.

Adventure Starts Here (6×8 Layout Process)

Studio Calico recently released a new line of washi tapes and labels that I’m so excited about!  My rainbow loving heart is seriously doing flips over these fun new staple products, and I kind of felt the need to share this goodness :)

A7C11007-4BB6-4628-9A2D-561877DAB70E.jpgI’m all about a basic pattern when it comes to washi tape so I was thrilled to see a fun variety of polka dots, grid, and squiggly patters in all of the fun colors! I know I’m going to get so much use out of these, from reinforcing the holes on my planner pages to making fun background designs on layouts/notebook pages.  Its fun to think of all the possibilities!

44035B96-2CAB-4AA3-9AF6-4E332CEAD63D.jpgThe label stickers are equally as awesome.  I think I’ll always have a special place in my heart for those cut apart labels that used to come in just about every kit, but stickers just make things so much more convenient.  Plus, these ones are great to stamp on (a necessity in my book!)  There’s zero smudging on these labels so they are perfect for adding a date (or any stamped sentiment) on your projects.

Dream Come True

CCF46517-8104-453F-BC18-0C0D2F85B05C.jpg

For the love of traveler’s notebooks! Currently I have two TNs in rotation to document Felicity’s first year.  The first is her 4-6 month TN to document what’s currently going on, while the other is going back in time to when she was first born (this notebook will cover birth to two months).  It’s pretty fun going back and forth between the two and seeing  how much she has grown!

064479CF-B9F9-485B-B4E0-4E29A526B425.jpgToday’s page highlights the first photo we sent out to family and friends after she was born.  Its definitely a very special page, and it opens her first TN insert!

These Are My People

3CD2CBBE-0C0D-4818-B2BF-8A7D4998C52A.jpg

Anyone else out there have a box full of unused photos?  Okay, maybe several boxes?  If you just answered “yes” let me reassure you that I totally understand.  I too have photos of every size stashed away in my closet.  Photos from High School, College, from my childhood, wedding . . . you name it and its probably in there.  This box has slowly expanded from times when I’d print duplicates, end up using an alternate photo on a project, take a photo down from somewhere- whatever the circumstance, if the photo doesn’t have a home it goes into the box.  Well, I’ve been meaning to do something with these photos for the longest time and I’m finally getting to it!

I’ve decided to start a 6×8 binder to hold mini layouts for all of my old photos.  I love that the 6×8 size is manageable and the layouts come together super quickly, plus I have so many 6×8 binders that I’ve been wanting to use, so this is the perfect opportunity!

89EA5C4C-B29A-4226-832D-6244D5817034.jpgThese layouts won’t be done in chronological order by any means.  In fact, so many photos aren’t even dated that I may not be able to put that information on my scrapbook page.  The main goal for this project is to just get those old photos into an album, and have some scrapbooking fun along the way (of course!)

AD7E763C-E679-4D47-B997-4B8177A5CFD0.jpgToday I’m working with a photo from my wedding.  This photo is so special because it has four of my favorite people in it- my sister and three of my very best friends (since Middle School!)

This page came together pretty quickly (once I figured out how to cover up a giant mistake I made pretty early on :).

All the Heart Eyes

How is this little one already 4 months old?!  At this stage Felicity is just the smiliest, happy baby.  She has started laughing a lot and loves having little conversations with just about everyone.   She’s getting more and more curious about her surroundings and I can see those little wheels turning as she figures new things out every day.

A2A52BBF-DD2E-4C73-A314-DE9723F994CF.jpg4 months also marks the start of a new Traveler’s Notebook coming into rotation as I continue to document her first year in this format.  For this layout I decided to use a full page photo with a foldout.  It’s super simple, but I’m so happy with how it turned out!

June 2018 TN Flipthrough

394F6964-1DC6-4D32-9EEA-1051FCEB51A1 (1).jpgHappy Friday!

Today I’m excited to share a little flipthrough of my latest TN insert that I recorded all of my June memories in.  As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been using the Studio Calico Traveler’s Notebook (along with the monthly subscription kit) to record personal stories or things that don’t end up in my project life album (things like what I’m loving, reading, gratitudes, etc.)

It was so fun filling this notebook up last month!

Tastes Like Summer

What are your favorite stories to document?  I’d say that aside from documenting my daughter, food and travel always rank incredibly high on the list.  There’s just something about food and travel photos that inspires my creativity in a special way, and I’m always eager to get crafty so I can get those stories into my notebook or onto my scrapbook page!ABF3F64F-032F-4709-A135-3EB39E25A900.jpg

Today’s layout is all about food, but more specifically our first BBQ of the summer.  I always love when O grills something up, but I feel like steaks and hamburgers are his specialty.  This burger was a treat so I knew I needed to get it into my notebook.
