Tutorial: Using Pool Party Kits in Your Traveler's Notebook

Aloha, SC friends! Brooke here today to share a quick traveler's notebook spread using some of the leftover bits from the July kits. 

I don't know about you folks, but this summer has flown right on by. With work being hectic, a ton of parties and events, and school starting next week, being able to carve out even the slightest of moments to craft has been a challenge. Spending a few minutes in my traveler's notebook to get life documented is really the most feasible way for me to craft these days. And, double-win, I get to use up my leftover supplies!
Here's a look at the supplies I pulled for this project. I stuck mainly with cards that matched the colors in my photo and stamps I could use to create a background.

Using the journaling lines stamp from the 3x4 OLB planner set, I alternated stamping vertical and horizontal lines in various Color Theory Ink colors to achieve a fun background pattern to use as my page's base.

Once the background was set, the rest of the spread took me maybe ten minutes to fiddle with and complete. I started by laying the photo down, cutting it slightly off-center for interest. The “summer vibes” title, which was cut out from one of the 4x6 Documenter Kit cards, was then added. I finished the spread with my journaling, a few stamps and a cluster of gold and white hearts.

Simple and to-the-point. Here’s a look at the final result…

I hope this post has inspired you to use up your supplies and get crafting! If you’re not already memory-keeping in a traveler’s notebook, I do hope you’ll try one out! I think in years to come, they’ll be fun to pull out and flip through. Plus, it's much easier than lugging down the gargantuan 12x12 albums!
