Creative Team Hannah Lemieux | Traveler's Notebook Layout ft. May Release!!!

Aloha!! Have you gotten your May digital Ordinary Moments Collection yet?! This Collection is so fun and perfect for the spring. Here is a look at the paper Collection.

 
 

 

This month I wanted to use a bit of this collection with the Crate Paper Here and There Collection. I have been looking through old photos from when we lived in Hawaii. I thought mixing the two with some pictures I took on a date night with my hubby in Honolulu would be fun. This photo I used isn't the Ordinary date night photo either. If you have ever been in downtown Honolulu, even though it's gorgeous in so many ways, there are a ton (and this wasn't even the summer when it is tourist season) of people. I also had just finished a photography class so I was seeing things all from a different lens and wanting to capture things from a different perspective. I loved the way the stones on the sidewalk looked, and wanted to remember how natural Hawaii could be. Sometimes it's these little Ordinary Moments that we need to focus on and document. 

This Collection is perfect for that. I loved the 3x4 journaling card that said Collect Moments Not Things. This moment was exactly what I was doing!!

I made sure I used little embellishments to help bring out the colors in the collection. The geo tag, black and white camera and the gold mini staples. I really love using the elements sheet from the collection. labels, tags, washi strips they are all so handy in adding to the pieces I haven't added from my stash and the Ordinary Moments collection. Having pieces that you can use to tie them together is so important. It helps the flow of your design. In a Traveler's Notebook this is even more important because you are limited on your space.

I have been loving this torn look on the edges of my patterned paper. I did this effect on both the Crate Paper and the Ordinary Moments patterned paper. Then just adding one puffy sticker over it all to bring it all together.

For the top above the photo, I added a piece of ephemera with some washi tape that has tickets on it. Then I added a flare button. I know a lot of people don't want to bulk up their Traveler's Notebooks, and I get it. After just a few spreads a TN can be so full if you add dimension on every page. It can be hard. This is one of those times, where I am gonna say use your own judgment and do what feels right. If it your project do what you like. There are so many ways you can create a TN spread without dimension. You can create flairs with epoxy stickers, you can just use flat round embellishments instead. 

For me, I need dimension, texture and something fun on my spread, even in a TN. I figure I probably won't feel up a TN, so it's ok if I need to start a new one. 

I used some copper chrome like stickers and love how it brings out the dark tones from the stones on the ground. This is supposed to bring out what is in the picture. Make everything flow together and feel like it was suppose to be together in the first place. 

You can only see it in the first picture, but I add a lot of journaling. It's another reason i love using Traveler's Notebooks, they offer this authentic space for adding hand written stories that can fill up the page. So that is what I do!! 

I hope you enjoyed this spread. Until next I hope you all Stay Inspired!!

Clique Kits May Blog Hop | ft. Riga Kit!!!!

Hello lovelies and welcome to this part of the Clique Kits May Blog Hop! I am so very happy you have stopped by! If you are participating in the Blog Hop, you more than likely came here from the lovely Hannah Lemieux blog. To find the next stop on the hop, be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom! If you wish to start back at the beginning, be sure to visit the Clique Kits blog first. Also, be sure to Like/Comment on each post in the hop to be entered into a prize drawing (full details on the Clique Kits blog.)

But first, I have a little inspiration for you, using the Clique Kits May Riga kit. This kit was packed with Pinkfresh Studio products that featured lovely rose gold, pinks and peachy colors, and all around stunning products for us! I had a photo of a flower we saw in the garden shop, and even though we did not purchase it, I still took a photo because it was so beautiful!

I have a favorite traveler's notebook that I love to document my gardening, so I grabbed that plus my photo and got to work. I absolutely LOVE the iDSN cut file from Clique Kits, and chose to cut it in the most delicate rose colored card stock I could find. I wanted just a little bit of contrast with the white background, but not too much to take away from my photo.

I cut the doily in fourths and adhered half on the top part of the page, and the other half on the bottom part of the page. I wanted my title to be my journaling, so I used the rose gold alphabet stickers to write "Such Beauty All Around Us," using the curve of the cut file.

My photo is on the left side of the layout, tucked partially into the bottom half of the cut file. I added just a few tiny die cut embellishments below the photo and at the top of the page.

For the last little detail I scattered some random confetti across the page, some gold, some pink, and glued them down using my glue pen. My technique for that is so simple: literally hold the confetti in your hand and move your hand around the page, as if you were sowing seeds. Adhere the sequins wherever they land.
