Hello there, Friends! Enza here again to show you how I incorporate digital papers and elements in my Traveler’s Notebook. Nowadays, there are different and fun ways to scrapbook: traditional layouts, pocket page layouts, mini books. Using a Traveler’s Notebook, with its smaller size, makes it easier to record little moments without having to make a full page.
When I saw the colors and the elements in the Matriarch collection, I knew I wanted to use it to create a spread about inspiration. Although the collection is meant to celebrate the females in your life, that is mothers, grandmas, sisters, friends, I thought it was perfect for a couple of sweet pictures of my kids, who inspire me every day with their curiosity and tenacity.
The first thing I did was creating a template for my Traveler’s Notebook’s pages in the Silhouette program.
I like to cut the cardstock to the exact same size as the pages, so I can trim it to fit perfectly once it is in the notebook. In this case, the template measures 8.25in in height by 4.32in in width.
For the right side of my spread I just focused on the elements I wanted to use. I love the mixed media effect behind the gorgeous butterflies and the word “Inspire”.
Next, the elements:
You can find a mini tutorial on how to use the print and cut feature in the Silhouette software in my previous post.
Here is the final spread:
And here are some close ups:
A few wood veneer pieces finished the page.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading and felt inspired to give this alternative way of scrapbooking a try.
Until next time.
