Hello there everyone! It is me, Andrea here today, and I wanted to share with you a Traveler's Notebook that I have been working on, using the "Girly and Strong" collection for The Fairytale Club's May kits!
I started this TN during one of the NSD live streams that we did for The Fairytale Club on my FairytaleScrapbook YouTube Channel last weekend. I am not done with the TN yet, but I think it is coming along nicely! I wanted to share with you what I have done so far!
I really love working with the May "happily ever after" kit! The kit, with all the goodies from the "Girly and Strong" collection, is just so cute and perfect I think for a project like this (in addition to be great for traditional layout scrapbooking and other planning and papercrafting projects), because there is just so much in the kit! You get so many patterned papers and you get so many planner dividers! I simply used one of the 12x12 patterned papers to be the cover of my TN and I used the personal sized planner dividers on the inside of my TN to be really cute TN pages!
I cut out my dapper, pink haired, cameo "fairytale girl" and added her to the cover of my TN. I did some stitching around her and added the word "pretty" from the gold foiled puffy sticker words to create a pretty cover for my TN.
I used my TN to document my recent trip to Disney's Dapper Day expo...which is a fun vintage event! I did a mix of black and white and colored pics to add to the fun vintage-meets modern style of the TN (which is the style of the Girly and Strong collection). And I played with the ephemera and the sequins, the paperclips, label stickers, and pretty patterned papers in the kit to make cute little "layout" pages in my TN. I particularly had fun fussy cutting out the roses from the "painted roses" patterned paper in the collection to use as lovely embellishments for some of my pages!
I will try to do another post soon to share more of the TN and what it looks like completed! You can watch me work on the pages shown in the pictures above and see how I made the TN insert (how I stitched it together, etc) on my live stream video on youtube. [note: Fast forward to minute 34]. I hope you enjoyed this post and that I inspired you to make a TN or work in your TN using the awesome "Girly and Strong" collection for the May kits! Hugs! And remember to live your life as a fairytale!!!
