Hi there! I’ve been quiet lately, and the main reason (other than a crazy busy life) is that I’ve been catching up on my Project Life album. I have fallen horribly behind, but lately I’ve gotten back to it, finished up 2016, and started 2017. I also have an upcoming move coming up, so I will stay quite for a little while longer, but in the meantime here’s a spread I made in my traveler’s notebook from earlier this summer. 🙂
The stamps I used here are my favorite ones for traveler’s notebooks – from Sakuralala!
Here’s a look at how I put together a weekly spread in my traveler’s notebook. First, I pick some washi tape from my ever growing collection (this one is by Aimez le Style), and select ink colors that match it (I used Distress Oxide inks for this spread). Then I stamp the dates and the week number, like I did here using the 365: Old English alphabet set.
The Hello Small Things – My Motivation stamp from Sakuralala is so versatile and inspiring! I had fun making this card. I chose three of the circular images and stamped them with matching colors of Distress Oxide ink on white cardstock.
I am using the blank weekly memo traveler’s notebook for my daily documentation this year, and since each booklet holds 28 weeks, it was time for me to set up a new notebook. I decided to make a stamped title for both booklets, with the year (2017) and the months contained in each notebook (Jan-July, July-Dec.). The Hello Small Things – Typeset stamp was perfect for this! The typewriter stamp added an interesting image to the page, and the typewriter alpha stamps fit perfectly in the bookplate at the front of the notebooks. I used Distress Oxide inks for the stamping.
I shot a video with the stamping – you can see how handy the cube acrylic block by Sakuralala is for stamping alphabets, and how I saved some time by stamping in both notebooks at once:
And now I am ready to fill in my notebook with the rest of the year!
Happy Independence Day to all my friends in the US! I celebrated doing some stamping in my traveler’s notebook. 🙂
I had so much fun with the new 365: U.S.A. stamp by igloo*dining*! First I stamped the map of the USA, then I laid out all the landmarks around it, and stamped the line to connect the landmark icons to their locations.
Finally, I stamped the landmarks all around the USA map. I chose colors inspired by the US flag. This turned out to be the best way to decorate the week of Independence Day (July 4th)!
After this stamping was done, I started decorating my spread as I normally do, using other stamps from the 365 collections: and 365: HIKARI and 365: Trip Guru.
Hello! I am so excited to share the latest stamps released by Sakuralala! There are two sets, and they are by Igloo*dining. They are called 365: CELEBRATION and 365: FAMILY, and I had so much fun using them!
In this traveler’s notebook spread, I used both stamps. On the right page, I had fun with some stamping celebrating my mom’s birthday.
And here’s what the final spread looks like in my TN:
These stamps are fantastic for cardmaking also. Here’s two cards I made – the first one is an anniversary card. I loved this stamp so much that I kept the card simple, letting the stamps shine.
I used Zebra Sarasa Clip gel pens to color a few accents. It turned out so well, that I decided to do the same for the bride’s dress, and also gave some silver accents to the groom.
I love how the colors pop against the kraft background!
Next, I made a colorful card with some watercolor accents. I shot a video of the stamping process. I apologize for the not-fancy background: I shot this in a break at the office, propping my phone up on an open drawer and stamping on the floor. 🙂
After stamping, I added a few more touches to my card: I colored in the girl, and added some gem embellishments. I love how this card turned out! So playful and happy.
I know I’ll be using these stamps over and over, they are so versatile and fun! Have a great weekend!
