Brenda’s Reader’s Notebook

Good morning friends! Like most of my fellow Gossamer Blue teammates, I am stoked about the new Traveler’s Notebook kit. It comes with an adorable TN insert that I purposed into a reader’s notebook within which I’ll document my reading adventures this year. 

The label and “favorites” are from the die cut embellishment pack in the May TN kit. I stamped out “reading” with these amazing alphabet stamps that were being sent as a subscriber incentive. I wanted the “favorites” to stand out more so I layered some washi strips from the May Scrapbook kit underneath the die cut. 

Inspired by our lovely team leader, Stephanie,who documented her TBR list during our NSD challenges, I also made a page dedicated to my To Be Read list. I’ve got all these books stacked on my nightstand and I’m determined to get through them before allowing myself to bring anymore books into this house! 

I LOVE the “This is normal, right?” stamp from the May Life Pages kit. It was pure perfection for this page. The black label was printed on that background ledger paper from the TN kit. It’s such an easy, decorated background. 

The wonderfully talented France challenged us all to scrap a Shelfie on NSD and I definitely had to do this for this notebook. On the right hand side, I drew two diagonal lines on the backside of one of the TN patterned papers and made templates for the triangular background. The cute die cut embellishments and washi are all from the TN kit. I printed a 2″ x 4″ photo of the stacks of my books on top a cabinet as my #shelfie. 

Those alphabet stamps are so versatile and I know I’ll be using them again and again. I wish I had about a hundred of the puffy shaped plus signs. They are perfect for accenting.
