Brenda’s Reader’s Notebook

1 Comment

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.

Hello, GB fans. It’s Eunyoung with a traveler’s notebook layout with the May TN kit. How great is our new Traveler’s Notebook Kit?

 My TN layout is a kind of  a trip photo diary. After I go on a trip, I usually record a photo diary in my traveler’s notebook. I

t’s not a mini album. It’s not important to follow the time sequence of the trip or to put the whole story in the notebook. I just record what I want…like my trip favorites.

This page is about my Jeonju city trip. I like to wander from street to street. It’s a good way to get to know the city. While I was wandering, I found many colorful walls on the street. The photo is one of them.

I put a Jeonju city map on the left side of a notebook and I added a photo on the right side. We can see many pretty illustrated city maps or Tourist Information Pamphlet during a trip. It’s a good way to record a trip. 

 I adhered the top of the city map with a double-side tape, it’s a long flap. After I lifted up the map flap, I wrote my journaling and I finished by stamping the date on the right side.

I hope you enjoy my page. Thank you for stopping by!

Hello Gossamer Blue peeps! When the new Traveler’s Notebook kit landed on my door step I knew it was time to broaden my scrapping horizon and jump onto the TN scrapbooking bandwagon.

The TN kit includes an index card with the color combo for the kit, the current month calendar, a creativity quote and 3 story prompts. I loved the idea of having prompts provided and decided to use “Outfit of the Day” as the inspiration for my spread. I recently found a fun, sassy shirt at Target with the saying “Slay All Day”  and it was perfect for this prompt.

I used the TN Kit for the majority of my spread along with stickers and the stamp set from the Life Pages Kit. Many of the phrases in this stamp set tied in so well with the subject of my shirt.

I placed my photo on the right side of my spread. Using paper from the TN kit on the bottom and a coordinating stamp from the Life Pages kit on the top. I finished it off with washi strips, die cuts and some stamped phrases. On the left I used a piece of paper from the TN kit for the background and added a title, journaling, coordinating die cuts and more stamping.

I loved the smaller scale of the TN spread and look forward to filling up my first insert.
