Simplifying December with Traveler’s Notebooks

Especially this time of year, when there are so many stories to be captured- I wanted to make it a point to scrap more often- to tell more stories- but in a simpler way. I love Project Life- and I am a big fan of mini books. It’s only natural then that my attention has been drawn to Traveler’s Notebooks.

I thought kits designed to fit these Notebooks would be a terrific new line to introduce to the shop- because it will make crafting the joy of our days simple and fast!

This week you can find the first ForeverJoy Traveler’s Notebook kit in the shop- and just in time to help Document your December!

It’s sized at 4×8 inches, so it not only fits perfectly into most TN’s but will also play nicely in your pocket scrapping! All PDF sheets are 8.5 x 11 – perfect for home printers!

Inside you’ll find all you need to make a December themed Traveler’s Notebook:

  • a set of 8 PSD templates (4×8 inches) ready for you to clip photos or papers to- and journal blocks already formatted.  Just type and print!
  • a set of 10 papers in 4×8 inches in JPG and PDF format.
  • a set of 4 Journal Cards 4×6 in JPG and PDF format
  • a set of tags and word snips
  • a set of hand drawn ephemera ready for you to print an cut in PNG and PDF format
  • and finally, a full set of numbers in ABR brush, PDF and PSD format.  They are sized at 1 inch so you can easily use a circle punch to pop them out!

Before I pushed the button on the line- I waned to make sure it was useful – it had to hit a need that I was missing. It also had to be easy to work with- and I need to love the look of the final project.

Guys, I have to say – I truly loved how this new line hits all those marks!

I used heavy weight presentation paper- and- here’s something I will always use from now on: Letter Sized sticker paper!

That way I can easily peel and stick- nice and flat and smooth- all the papers and templates to my notebook!

I’d love to hear your feedback on this new line- and let me know if you have any questions! Bottom line: I hope it’s a product that makes crafting your joy a little simpler and a lot more fun!

 

what joy will you create today?

  1. Oh RenneMarie, this kit hits every mark with me as I have been scrapping in a B6 Tn (5×7) and standard Tn (4×8) for a few months now. Love the kit!!

    • I LOVE hearing that Kim! I have fallen hard for this size because it the perfect combo of pocket style and mini book! Have fun with the design- I have a new one on the drawing board for winter 🙂

  2. I am thrilled for this kit from you!! i super love to make mini books with TN’s- what a perfect idea for a holiday album LOVE LOVE!! hope you’ll make more kits in this size! ((GIANT HUGS))

    • I’m definitely addicted too Nancy! I think the smaller size makes it more manageable- and I love having the mini books in a big basket – it’s more “user friendly” than my 12x12s 🙂

  3. Love this kit. Love using the TN format. Don’t celebrate Christmas though, so I am looking forward to other kits in this line.

    Happy Holidays.

Crafting the JOY and “meh” of Winter

I have a love-hate relationship with winter. Come November 1 after all the pumpkin spice palooza- I can’t wait to cozy things up with knits and layers and all things comfy-cozy, and then comes the magic of the holidays, the thrill of the first snow and the delight of slow cooked dinners and nights by […]

The Joy of Challenges

After the holidays where we give so much of ourselves to others, January gives us a welcome chance to look inward and see how we can refill our own buckets.  It’s also the time of year at the Lilypad when we host a “Month of Challenges”  where each day a different memory keeping challenge is […]

Jump start your layouts | looking backwards

It’s been said that photographs are a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. I love that thought. Because, if we can return to a time- then it’s never really lost is it? Not to us, or to anyone who can see and read and feel what that image means to us. We can tell […]
