Do you ever take the time to record the things that make you most happy? Whether in your traditional album, on a pocket page or in a mini album, these little bits of joy can be fun to document, and bring you joy just looking at them! Let’s take a look at how design team member Kristina Proffitt is doing just that in a traveler’s notebook spread, created using our May kit and extras!
Hey friends! It’s Kristina here and today I’m giving you a look inside of my traveler’s notebook, where I include things that I love. Today I’m using the May kit and extras to create a little spread about my love of taking pictures of the sky.
Anyone else a sky lover out there? I find myself so many times in a day (and night) looking at up at the sky, the clouds, the moon and the stars (I don’t look at the sun before well, that might hurt, ha!) I also love to take photos of sunrises and sunsets, storms rolling in and bright blue skies.
The May Kit has so many great elements, perfect for telling the story of my photos and journaling. I knew that I had to use the really cute sun journaling tag in the kit and I punched out the heart die cut from the kit as well and adhered it onto the journaling card.
I used some of the striped rainbow paper from the Love Is 6.5 x 8 Inch Paper Stack and made it a mat around my first photo. Then I cut a strip of it and placed it along the top of the photo on the next page. I adhered one of the Icon Chipboard Stickers on top and stapled the patterned paper strip with my tiny attacher.
I then used the “all the details” journaling tag from the May Kit to include my journaling and stamped some really happy heart eye emoji icons from the Currently Icon Stamp. I trimmed the card to shorten it a bit and it worked out because I accidently got a big ol’ smudge of ink on the bottom of the card, too. It happens! I stamped the date on it, handwrote the location and then adhered a Puffy Heart Stickers to the bottom and put a little staple through that as well.
Lastly, I took the striped tag die cut from the May Kit and tucked it behind the journaling tag. I put a little Puffy Heart Sticker on top and put the “here comes the sun” die cut on the bottom of the page.
I love how simple this turned out, but yet how bright and joyful it is, too—just exactly the way the sky makes me feel!
I hope this inspires you to pull out your May kit and extras and start a mini album, layout, pocket page or traveler’s notebook about the things that you love! You’ll be glad that you did. Ok, I’m off to go snap a photo of the sky to add to my collection! It’s SO pretty here today! See ya!
