Hi, everyone! When I saw the rich, earthy colors in the "Homestead" Documenter Kit, I knew I wanted to get out my Traveler’s Notebook and document a typical fall weekend. I chose a weekend where we didn’t have a lot going on, but what stood out to me was being out in the cool, rainy weather and then coming inside to a warm fire and hot coffee. The “home” accents in the "Homestead" Kit worked perfectly to help tell my story. I especially love the little die-cut houses.
Sometimes when I’m faced with a blank notebook page, I don’t know where to start. A little trick I like to use it to take some of the journaling cards that come with my Documenter Kit and lay them out so they break up my page into sections. Then I go to each area and add a photo or embellishment. Because the cards already coordinate with one another, it’s an easy way to make my page come together in no time. To add a little extra dimension to this page, I adhered a couple of the cards on only one side so they flip up.
I made a second page in my notebook about getting out of the house to see the beautiful fall colors and grab some lunch. Once again, I used journaling cards to break up my page. I turned one of the 4" x 6" cards on its side to use as a background behind my large picture and add a splash of color.
Going through your cards can also help give you prompts for things to add to your page. For instance, I used the fork and spoon card as a background for a picture of lunch. After that, all that was left was to go back and add some of the cute die-cuts and embellishments to my page and I was done.
I hope you’re inspired to use some of your journaling cards in your Traveler’s Notebook. Thanks so much for joining me today.
