We have another TN (Traveler’s Notebook) Tuesday post featuring both the Tranquility Collection and the My Escape Collection. Around these parts, we call our traveler’s notebook the Simple Dori. The inside of the notebook features designs from its coordinating collection, along with several blank pages for full creative control. There are so many ways to document in your Simple Dori Travelers Notebook. You can add the highlights of a whole month in one insert or spread them out over several notebooks. You can create a theme around your Simple Dori inspired by the kits each month. Or it can be a place of creative play, to experiment with memory-keeping styles with extra photos, quotes, and ephemera. There are no rules, just a whole bunch of crafty fun! And don’t forget that the Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit provides you with a few sketches from Christine to kickstart your creativity.
Evy shares a spread with a go-to photo size and a new decorating style.
“My love for traveler’s notebooks is known to everyone. Before the Simple Dori Travelers Notebook, I used planner inserts for my projects! Obviously, the style changes over time and so does the way of scraping.
This month, I have been using full-page photos a lot. I like to put some small embellishments from the Tranquility Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit on the photo or the title like in this case.
This spread is unique because it is the first time that I embellished an already decorated page from the Tranquility Simple Dori! I couldn’t resist inserting stamps, stickers from the caption, and the date in a mix that I really like. For the dotted border, I used a simple black gel pen.
I like to have fun when I do memory-keeping in TN, I often do it in complete relaxation in front of the TV.” The size of the Simple Dori makes it easy to work on from just about anywhere! Evy’s spread is full if lovely little details. And we love how you mixed up her alphas in her title. There are several repeating alpha styles that can be mixed and matched each month. When you run out of a certain letter, grab one of your other alpha sheets and your problem is solved.
The Simple Dori has been a great creative outlet for Jennie.
We hope you are inspired to pull out your Simple Dori and get creative! Share your pages with us by tagging @cocoa_daisy on social media or posting to the Cocoa Daisy Fan Page.
