Creative Journaling Page | 2017 Goals

Hello everyone!

I'm back today with a spread in my creative journal, all about my goals for this year! I'm loving my traveller's notebook for this kind of memory-keeping; it allows me to journal a little more than Project Life does, and really note down my thoughts and feelings about an event. 

I used the beautiful January Brimbles Box to put these pages together, and the goal-focused sentiments were just perfect!

Part of the journaling is quite personal, so I decided to create a tip-in. I used washi tape from the box, along with one of the 6x4 cards from the cut apart sheet, to create this lift-the-flap type page. It not only covers my more private thoughts, but allowed me an extra space to write my general goals for the year. I decorated the card with some phrase stickers from my stash, and some of the gorgeous foiled stickers from the box. I love the planner sticker, too.

I covered the right-hand page in some of the marbled paper from the box; I treated it almost as a scrapbook page. I layered a doily from my stash, a photo of my friends and I from New Year's Eve, and trimmed out the circular "Goals" piece from a card on the cut apart sheet. I picked out some alphas from my stash to create a title, along with a few more of those phrase stickers to tie in both pages. To finish the spread, I used a tab from the box for a bit of dimension and interest. I think it looks fab to have tabs and bits and pieces visible when the notebook is closed. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my project! You can also find me on Youtube, Instagram and Twitter.

Creative Journaling | Iceland 2016

Hello everyone,

I'm back today with another project share, using the beautiful Woodland kit. Today I thought I'd create something a little bit different (for me anyway!) and put together a creative journaling spread in my traveller's notebook. 

Firstly I layered up some washi tapes from my stash on the left hand page, and trimmed a piece of the Hazelwood Roses paper for the right hand page. I wanted to create a column on the right hand page using photos and embellishments, so I arranged the photos vertically and filled in the gaps with some of the puffy stickers and ephemera from the kit, as well as some enamel dots and letter stickers from my stash. I used these same letter stickers on the left hand page to create a title, also.

The left hand page is very simple: I loved the globe from the ephemera pack, so I decided to make that the focal point of the page, combined with a photo of the plane's wing (of course!) Again I layered some washi and puffy stickers, stamped the date and it was complete! I went back and wrote about our trip to Iceland, but I decided to photograph the project beforehand.

I absolutely love this spread; I'm wondering if Creative Journaling prcoess videos might go down well on my channel?
