Squeeze The Day - Traveler's Notebook Process | Montana TN - Summer of Stories


Hi, my creative people! When's the last time you used something really old on a project? Today, I am sharing with you how to mix old and new to make a lovely page. This traveler's notebook spread for my Montana album was so fun to make. I had so much fun layering together all of the different elements from the different craft brands!



While my background paper was from 2008, my other products were from 2016 or newer. When mixing and matching older supplies, you'll want to try to identify similar themes or color waves to make it feel more cohesive. The primary colors of the background fit well with some of the elements from the One Canoe Two Goldenrod collection I had for my HTKAKWS June kit!




Creating the main cluster was super easy for me this time around. I started with a base element of a white tag but opted to expand it to include a white doily as well. Since my background paper was mainly white, I wanted to add another base layer with some color. I rummaged through my homemade scrapbook kit and found this green grid paper scrap from the Outfitters 6x6 paper pad from Pink Paislee. I then pulled a plethora of stickers from We R Memory Keepers and One Canoe Two to create my title piece and accent it!



Since my main cluster on the top page is so robust, I kept my other page simple. I used three stickers next to my photo to have a small spot for journaling. I adore this photo from my first Montana hike!


I talk about a few tips in the video about making sure you utilize your self-timer feature on your camera and phone. It's a great way to take group shots and make sure you are included in the photos too. If you are traveling alone, it is the perfect way to get shots like this! Give it a try on your next trip.


I am so excited I got to use a paper from 2008! An oldie, but a goodie. And for those of you who thought I should get rid of this paper pad during my purge earlier this year, this one is for you!
