Traveler's Notebook Spreads created for Clique Kits - MY PERSONAL JOURNAL -
Hello everyone! I am back today with my final post using the beautiful and super colorful MALIBU TN kit. If you haven't checked the kit completely, then just click here -to be taken to the Clique Kits website-, and you could see the entire kit and add ons. I have kept a journal/diary since i was a small kid. Through the years the format has changed, but I fell in love with TNs a few years back, and used them as my form of memory keeping/Project Life. So I thought, I will share with you how i have incorporated the Malibu TN kit to some of my daily TN entries.
We are babysitting my littles for the summer, so I had to snap a picture of the kids and my daughter as they enjoy some summer movie fun. I converted it to b/w so that it can easily fit into the spread without clashing with the colors in the papers. Next, I cut one of the papers from the Pink Paislee's Summer Lights collection to about a 1/2in taller than the picture. I cut the paper so that it could easily fit into the 2 pages of the spread, and then added my picture at the end of the paper.
To balance the page, I cut some of the leftover pieces from the papers in the MALIBU kit (i am down to scraps of papers after all this projects!), and created banners. They all were attached to the top of the page, above the picture, in a cluster with a little piece of washi tape from my stash.
The typed journal lines balanced the spread, and a few embellishments made from the papers, stickers, and exclusive printables from this month's Malibu kit complete this page. So simple and quick to put together.
Next, i used this striped paper from the Summer Lights collection (featured in this month's Malibu TN kit) as it reminded me of a beach towel.
This time, I used the entire 6x6 paper sheet to cover the center of the 2 page TN spread. I cut the paper so that it fit on both pages, and glued a picture of the 2 girls to the top corner of the paper. I added a small piece of another paper to mat the picture, and make sure it pops from the busy background. a few fussy cut images from the CK Exclusive printables, and the papers along with the swim suit chipboard sticker is all that was needed to frame the picture.
I used my editing software to enlarge some of this month's exclusive printables. In this particular page, I chose to add my sentiment inside the hexagon. I am loving the alphas from last month's POOL PARTY kit.
The color matched this month's kit also. Here is the final layout. I love how easy it came together, and all the color in the page -even in the journal lines... the neon pens included in the kit will steal your heart, too!
I hope you all are ready to use the MALIBU KITS to document your summer adventures. There are a few available at the Clique Store, so make sure you can get your hands on one of them... You will love it! Remember to leave me a comment if you have questions on how this came together, or just to say hi!
