Making New Memories | Inspiration

Hello! This is Rachel here with my very first blog post as part of the new Evalicious Design Team! I’m a big fan of Evalicious’s Puffy Stickers, so I did have a hard time stopping myself from using up a whole pack of puffy stickers on this project. Ha!



Being a crafter who has a strong obsession over Traveler’s Notebook, I made myself a new insert for the new year which is barely 3 weeks away. OMG. Where has all the time gone to? It is a good thing being a memory keeper, at times when our brains couldn't recap on the past moments, we have our albums, journals and notebooks to go to.


This Traveler’s Notebook insert has a kraft paper cover with a dimension of approximately 11cm x 21cm, which many of us identify this as a regular size traveler’s notebook insert. I couldn’t stand how bare and sad-looking it is, therefore I dolled it up with pretty papers, old old storybook pages, paper bag, washi tapes, stamps, mist, puffy stickers, paper clips, ribbon, some machine stitches and called it my own, the one of a kind notebook. Plus, I pulled out a piece of vellum with cute little camper prints on it, laminated it, glued on a piece of wood venner, and VIOLA it turned into a handy page marker for my traveler’s notebook!


Psst.. put your eyes on the back cover. Are you able to spot the secret compartment I created using the red polka dots paper bag? I folded the paper bag into half, trimmed off the bottom sealed portion, punched a semicircle, and there I have another pocket on the inside of my notebook insert. I like to have pockets in my notebook inserts, where I can keep little notes away and have easy access to them.


I had fun altering this notebook insert, and I very much hope that this little project of mine gave you some inspiration to work on your plain and sad-looking notebook (if you have any)!

Here’s me signing off for now, but I’m looking forward to my next round of project sharing!

Love,
Rach
