My Personal Journal

field-notes   Hello there! I hope you are enjoying all the projects that the beautiful April kit, "JELLYBEAN", and that they are inspiring you to use every single piece included in the kit.  The papers, embellishments, and the exclusive printables are so versatile, and perfect to use in all kinds of paper projects.
 I have kept a journal throughout my entire life.  The format has transformed to the years, but once I discovered Traveler's Notebooks a few years back, i have been hooked on them.    I try at best to make at least a daily entry on my journal, it works as my PL format.  This month, I have loved adding bits and pieces from the JELLYBEAN kit to my journal.

Once again, I used this month's exclusive printables to add interest to the page, and the small letter alphas from Elle's Studio, included in the kit, are just the perfect size for this entry.  I am always trying new ways to journal on my pages; this time, I chose to write along the edge of the page!.

 Finally, the last entry i am sharing with you, is just a fitting example of how versatile the kit is,  and how easy is to document in a TN format.   Once again, I picked  the last piece of the Impossible paper -included in the kit-, and covered one side of the TN.  The beautiful ephemera pieces from the Make Your Mark collection  serve as the sentiment and embellishment on the page.

 By using the TN on a landscape format, I was left with  a large space to add my journal lines (this entry is all about me, and how happy my DSLR makes me!).  I balanced the page, by adding some of the ephemera pieces, and a sentiment fussy cut from the cut-apart paper from the JELLYBEAN kit. I hope these all serve as inspiration to take a look at Traveler's Notebooks, and how to use the kit when documenting in this format.  TNs are versatile, and work for many different types of memory  keeping/ planner/ art journal.  Clique Kits has just launched a new subscription program all about traveler's notebook, just click here to see all about this new venture. As always i am just a comment away, if you have any questions on how any of these came together.   Thanks for stopping by!
