Today, I am creating in my traveler's notebook and I wanted to bring you along and encourage you to find a few minutes to create. Sometimes, scrapbooking and creating can get a little bit overwhelming with all of the inspiration and complicated techniques out there. Sometimes, I just need to take a step back and keep it simple. I need to write what's on my heart and create just to create in those small pockets of time when I can find a few minutes.
QUICK TIP: When I create a traveler’s notebook spread, I always push my left and right side pages together and create it like one little layout and then cut it in half as my very last final step. This really seems to help with the placement of embellishments as well as symmetry on my layouts.
This traveler's notebook layout was super easy to create combining pieces from the Road Trip collection as well as the Nature's Bliss 6x6 Paper Pack. I used one of those patterned paper pieces as the basis for my layout and backed it with a thin black cardstock border that I punched with my notebook edge punch.
Then, I used a piece of ephemera from the Road Trip ephemera pack (the yellow license plate and the light green geotag) and punched the edge of a 3x4 quote card with the notebook border punch. Next, I stamped the compass stamp from the Road Trip stamp set in the top left corner and the bottom right corner. The mountain piece was fussy cut from one of the 3x4 pocket page cards and then I fussy cut a few license plates from the back side of that same 3x4 pocket page card.
I finished things off with some journaling as well as a few sequins from some of my favorite SpiegelMom Scraps sequin mixes. My title "Just Breathe" was the perfect final addition to bring it all together. This layout came together really quickly and gave me a little creative outlet in the middle of a very busy day. I challenge you to find a pocket of even fifteen minutes of time to create something just for the fun and joy of creating!
