Hello there! It’s Kylie back with you all on the blog today, sharing another fun project I have been working on. Since yesterday was International Friendship Day, I thought I would work on some Traveler’s Notebook pages featuring my boy and his very best friend Maximus- Our much loved (*cough- and spoilt) pup.
The “Boys Rule” collection was perfect for my photos and I found my pages came together very easily thanks to all the cute die cuts and stickers I could use to enhance my pages.
Using off cut strips of paper, I love to create borders for my pages overlapping each other, even tucking my photo behind one. They really help to frame my page. The ‘You and Me’ title phrases I borrowed from the ‘Midnight’ collection.
I mostly used the 6 x 8 paper pad to back each TN page. It’s pages are the perfect size to cut down and it also limits waste. I lined each page with a different design making sure they were cut slightly smaller than the TN page. This gives each page the appearance of a white border. **TIP- Once you have cut the background paper for the first page, use it as a template for your remaining pages to ensure each is the exact same size.
Using the frames from the die cut pack, I layered them over each other to back one of my photos.
Some of the phrase die cuts were a perfect addition to my photos and the story I was preserving. I used lots of the arrows as well as the star die cuts to layer over my images or to fill any spaces that needed balance.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Traveler’s Notebook today and that it inspires you a little to fill your own pages.
