Hi friends! Jodie here today with a traveller's notebook spread using the beautiful January 2018 Heart Eyes Travellers Notebook kit.
This month the spotlight collection in the kits is Paige Evans' Whimsical. I adore this collection, and it really has a full and varied colour palette, but today I've pulled mostly teals and liliacs for this spread.
The background of my layout is based on one piece of 6x6 paper, and I trimmed it so that I had one 6x4 piece and one 6x2 piece. The larger piece I adhered to the left side of the spread and the smaller piece to the right. Then to add some texture and definition I chain stitched with an embroidery thread around three sides of each paper. If you're familiar with Paige's style you'll know that she's a big fan of chain stitch on her layouts, so it was kind of fitting to include it on this spread.
The smaller patterned paper piece ended up being the perfect place to pop my journaling. I printed some strip journaling on my printer and stitched it down with my sewing machine.
And OMGosh you guys, I was SO excited to see these tassels in the TN kit this month!! Aren't they the sweetest!? I've tucked this one across the top of my journalling, and I love, love it!
One of the January add-ons that I purchased from the shop is this 2019 acrylic piece. I had planned on using it on a pocket pages spread but it worked so well with this layout I couldn't not use it here. It has a really nice thickness, weight and colour to it, and I love it. The floral piece popped on top is from the rub-on pack in the kit. Since I wanted to use it more as an ephemera piece, I applied it to some white cardstock and then fussy cut it out. There's another yellow flower in the cluster that didn't work with the rest of the spread... so I just covered it up with the puffy heart ha!
And here's the finished spread! I hope I've inspired you with a way to use 6x6 papers on your travellers notebooks today, and maybe even to try some stitching.
Thanks for stopping by,
