This project introduces a much smaller format of scrapbooking, the traveler’s notebook. I’m using the standard size traveler’s notebook that accompanied the Felicity Jane kit for this class, it measures 8 1/4″ x 4 1/4″, so I make my layout on two 8″x4″ pieces of paper and then tape them into the book. I find it much easier to create my layout outside of the book, then to add it in.
On this layout, notice I only have one layer behind this photo and my embellishments aren’t overly clustered either. Due to the smaller size, this format doesn’t really need a lot of embellishment. Feel free to keep these super simple!
The fringe is a great choice here because it adds texture without bulk. The puffy stickers do add a little dimension, but they have some give when you close the notebook, so they don’t stand out too much. Notice the large amount of “white space” (empty space) on this page. This is intended to be a notebook that you flip through, so keeping it simple is usually best.
