December has flown by so quickly, once again. I used Kelly Purkey's holiday releases to document the month in my traveler's notebook. I used the Oh What Fun Traveler's Notebook Kit for this layout.
On this laypout, I used a mix of December Words, December Monograms and Christmas in the City stamp sets
During the week of Thanksgiving, my husband and I were traveling in Taiwan and Japan. I brought along some of my Kelly Purkey stamps to use in my travel journal.
I used the large 6x8 number set from the Holiday release to add our departure and arrival times. I also used the Cobble Hill alpha from the November release to add airport codes and titles throughout my entire journal.
I really like to keep my travel journals simple. I bring minimal supplies so I can focus on just getting words down rather than focusing on what stamps and embellishments I want to use.
Hello everyone! I just love Ali’s Story Kit and Story Stamp this month, Adventure! I have a lot of undocumented trips and I wanted to at least get a little bit about them down in my journal. This layout was for my trip to Vietnam in March 2014. I printed one of my favorite photos on my Instax Share printer. I love the new black square film! I added a chipboard embellishment onto my photo and stamped “adventure” and “really, really excited” below the photo. I took the travel tags from the kit an added details about our trip on my typewriter. To do this, I used washi tape to tape the tags onto an piece of paper, making them easier to type on. I am hoping to creat an entire mini album for this trip soon, but for now, I am so happy that I have a piece of it documented!
The Rest & Relax Bonus Traveler's Notebook kit is definitely a favorite of mine from the Kelly Purkey April shop update! I love the color palette and all those leaves!
I loved the patterned paper with the half circles on them. I decided to cover most of the graph half circles with photos from a hiking trip. Luckily I had a circle punch that fit perfectly and made pulling this layout together a breeze.
Next I took the word stamps and randomly stamped them in white on the solid half circles.
To finish this layout, I took the colorful leaf patterned paper and cut a half circle from it, and adhered that to the pink leaf patterned paper. I then added a label and a coupe stickers to the layout. It's very simple but definitely one of my favorite layouts!
