Hi everyone, Kelly here with a new blog all about my Crafty Girl Travelers Notebook (TN). For a while I wanted to dedicate a TN for all my craft projects. I wanted a place to write down ideas for special projects, spreads and layouts. But also a place to write down measurements, techniques and swatches of all my inks and pens. When I saw the ‘Crafty Girl’ collection I immediately thought about this project and started decorating my Aztec TN.
For decoration purposes only, I filled the front pockets with papers and bits and pieces from the collection. I covered one of my notebooks with a scrapbook paper and added a 3x4 card.
For the opening page in the notebook I made a special spread using the word Create and the ‘Hand made’ paper. I punched different sizes butterflies from the different colors of the paper and placed them in the same rainbow order as the paper. Love the end result!
I used some tab stickers from the combo sticker sheet for the different sections of my notebook. In the first section I will write down all the measurements I need while planning. For example, I made templates and noted the measurements of the monthly and vertical weekly boxes for A5 planner inserts. I attached the templates with washitape on the page. This way I can easily grab them when I need them for a spread.
Lastly, I made an opening page for the swatches of all my color pens, brushpens, inks, etc. The collection has some awesome stickers and ephemera to match this theme, such as pencils and inkpads. In the pages behind this opening page I will swatch all my colors as a reference for use in my planner and projects.
For now, the setup of my Crafty TN is done and I can easily add more measurements, techniques, ideas etc!
Have a lovely day!
