Today I’m up on the Citrus Twist Kits blog sharing how I used this month’s digital cut apart sheet in my traveler’s notebook. These cut aparts work so great with this month’s pocket life kit, and the whole set is free!
You can check out how the page came together here.
Chopping off my hair last month was not a very hard decision to come to . . . my daughter’s tiny fingers, constant 100+ degree temperatures, no patience for styling . . . need I say more? :)
I feel like I’ve spent most of the last 10 years with short hair, but this last cut was a pretty big chop since I hadn’t cut it since before getting pregnant. In any case, I felt like this was a story I wanted to get documented in my personal TN. I’m so happy I decided to snap a before photo so I could create a little before/after flip up photo!
If you’d like to see how this simple page came together, there is a process video below!
The 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!

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!
Today’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!

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.
4 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!

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!
If you’re interested in purchasing your own Studio Calico TN kit, you can find it here.
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!
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.

I have so many happy memories of going to see big blockbuster movies in the summer when I was younger. It was always fun to escape the heat for a couple of hours and get wrapped up in some big, epic story. It felt like summer really wasn’t complete without waiting in line to see at least one big film. Is anyone with me on this?
Last month when Omar and I went to see Jurassic World, it felt just like that . . . like we were taking part in some special summer tradition, and I definitely wanted to get it documented in my traveler’s notebook! :)
For this page I used my July Studio Calico traveler’s notebook, which already had this jungle looking pattern paper inside. After fussy cutting out a title to adhere on the left side I created a cluster of embellishments around the photo on the right. This page was so fun to work on and I definitely think I’ll be using movie poster photos for some inspiration on future layouts!

Hello, and happy Friday!
Today I’m so excited to share a flipthrough of a completed Traveler’s Notebook with you!
About one month after Felicity was born I started thinking about how I wanted to document her stories. I really liked the idea of documenting in a Traveler’s Notebook because each page can be as involved or as simple as you’d like. For me, the most important thing was to get some photos off my phone and into a book where I could journal about what was going on. These are details I definitely don’t want to forget!
I think a lot of times we get caught up in the idea of making a “perfect” baby album, or making sure we write down each and every detail, but for me its not about making something fancy (at least for now, ha!). I may one day decide to take a bunch of photos and make a special digital album, but for now this is what’s working and I’m going with it :)
