Love in a Traveler’s Notebook with Aimee Mertell

Hello, friends! It’s Aimee here to share a travelers notebook page I’ve created using the new January 2021 kit and extras. Even though it’s a smaller size, there are still plenty of ways to use your 3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″ tags. I opted to use an album with 3″ x 4″ pockets on one side and a full page on the other. 

Supplies | January 2021 KitTrue Love Stickers, Dark Pink Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Puffy Heart Stickers, All My Heart Wood VeneersXOXO 6 x 8.5 Inch Paper Stack

Having the pockets on one side really makes it simple—you can just slip your photos or tags in as is or do a little extra embellishing as I’ve done here. 

For the full page side of the spread, I selected the lovely dark pink plaid and the teal “xo”patterned paper from the XOXO Paper Stack, trimmed them down and arranged them on the edge of my page.

I then selected the 4″ x 6″ tag from the January 2021 Kit that reads, “this is love.” I flipped it and trimmed it down to fit as a layering element behind this adorable photo of my daughter. I really love how the sentiment on the tag acts as a title for my spread.

I then grabbed the All My Heart Wood Veneers and in keeping with my vertical design, arranged the wood veneer hearts alongside my paper layers.

To help balance the right and left sides of the spread and tie in some of that gorgeous pink color, I made a title for one of the journaling tags using the Dark Pink Puffy Alphabet Stickers that reads, “too cute!” 

To finish things off, I added the “hugs & kisses” label from the True Love Stickers and of course, a Puffy Heart Sticker is always a must! While the pockets in the album made using the January Kit tags easier, you can also use them as layering elements or even cut them up—the possibilities are endless. I’m really loving documenting in this size and can’t wait to see how you use the January kit and add-ons on your travelers notebook spreads. Until next time, happy crafting!
