Sweet and Simple Traveler's Notebook Spread

Hello everyone! My name is Enza, and I am so excited and honored to be a guest designer for the Fairytale Club this month! Thank you, Andrea, for inviting me to join you and your amazing team.

A little bit about myself...

I was born and raised in Italy. I moved to the United States twelve years ago to follow my heart. I’ve been married to Michael since 2004 and we have three very energetic kids who keep our days full and very very busy. I have always loved playing with pretty papers, stickers, and fun embellishments, but only started scrapbooking in 2008. It has become a passion of mine, a way to express my creativity and document our memories in a fun and colorful way. Not paper crafting related... I can't leave without coffee and chocolate :)

Today I am sharing a spread in my Traveler's Notebook using the beautiful Storytime kit. I absolutely love all the pretty colors in it. Pink, purple and aqua/teal are my absolute favorite. I also have a thing for ephemera pieces, and this kit is packed full with them. Here is what I came up with:

I started by covering the pages with two different patterned papers. I think the combination of pink and aqua is just lovely, and works perfectly for the sweet picture of my daughter hugging her grandma.

Before placing the label stickers under the left side of the photo, I cut them in half as I wanted to give my spread a more cohesive look by repeating some of the elements on the opposite page.

The same idea was behind the roses I fussy cut from the "Belle" patterned paper. Some are peeking out from the top right corner of the photo, one single rose is in the cluster at the bottom of the other page.

A few colorful sequins and my journaling finished the spread.

I hope your enjoyed reading about my process today. The Storytime kit is truly beautiful, and I can't wait to share more of my projects with you. Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
