Summer TN

Hello! I have been buried in work lately with no creative time. Send help!!

In the past month I have started a spring/summer traveler’s notebook, and here are the spreads I have made so far (you can see the first one I made here). I’m loving this format!

We planted a garden in our backyard. Things are just about starting to grow now, let’s see if we can gather before the wildlife raids it! 🙂

On this spread I used distress paint on the background, and added some stamping. Quick and easy and colorful!

 

I adhered a couple of pieces of patterned paper from the Confidant scrapbook kit. Then I added stamping, washi tape, and die cuts.

I am also taking the Summer of Sketches class at Studio Calico and these next couple of spreads in my TN were inspired by two sketches from the class.

Getting back on track with healthy eating is my summer project. So far – one week in – it’s going well! This first spread was a motivational one that I made right before starting. And this next spread is about the first day.

The paper is from the Confidant scrapbook kit, and I added some stamping and some embellishments from the defunct Gossamer Blue kits.

Another paper from the Confidant scrapbook kit, and I embellished with stamped images that were fussy cut. I love how this spread turned out!

 

I love scrapbooking in this format because it’s really quick and easy. Have you been jumping on the TN (traveler’s notebook) bandwagon? I can’t wait to continue filling this notebook up, and then moving on to another.

Ready for Summer

I went shopping when my mom was visiting, and ended up with a few fun outfits for summertime. So I documented them in a traveler’s notebook spread.

The background is made using an old stamp set from Studio Calico, Cotton Candy, which I inked with distress oxide inks (in picked raspberry and carved pumpkin) and spritzed with water before stamping, to get a watercolored look. Then I added the title using two of my favorite new stamp sets: Conrad and the alpha from the May scrapbook kit, Hey Girl. Here’s closer look at the embellishments:

I look forward to filling up this TN with our summer adventures!

Catching Up

Hello there! I have been super quiet lately because work has been swallowing me, and then my mom came to visit us (yay!) so all my free time was spent with her. But I did manage to work on a few projects earlier this month, so I thought I’d share them here finally.

This was a fun page I made to document a few things I am loving right now. It’s made using the Confidant scrapbook kit from Studio Calico.

Here’s a look at a couple details:

I added some gold acrylic ink splatters. I love the shine and texture they add!

This next page is also made primarily with the Confidant scrapbook kit.

Finally, an all purple page. It’s a color I don’t use often, but I went all in on this page! 🙂

I have also been keeping up in my weekly traveler’s notebook documentation (in my Hobonichi weeks). Here are a couple recent spreads I made.

I hope to be back soon with some fun projects! Until then, have a great rest of May!
