Hello! It’s Ashley and I’m here today to share my C’est La Vie Spiral Notebook with you! There are so many fun ways to use a Notebook. I decided it would be a good idea to make a Notebook for my daughter. She recently turned 10, so I used some photos from her birthday photo shoot and the C’est La Vie collection to decorate the Notebook for her.
I decorated the divider pages of each section in the Spiral Notebook with various embellishments from the C’est La Vie collection. Then I used the first notebook sheet of each section, to add a photo of my daughter. I took the approach of making each of the photo pages look like a mini scrapbook page. I also added in some hand writing and hand doodling to add a funky look to the Notebook.
I kept each of the photos Black & White, to keep a consistent look in the Notebook. But I changed up the sizes of the photos to add variety on the different pages. I love that she has all of the empty Notebook pages to fill with drawings, for writing, other photos, etc.
Mixing patterned papers with the puffy stickers and ephemera pieces, worked perfectly for keeping the Notebook flat, and not too bulky. I wanted each page to be relatively flat, to leave room for the things my daughter wants to add. As she adds things to it, we will probably add an elastic band or tie a ribbon around the Notebook, to keep it closed.
What ideas do you have for the C’est La Vie Spiral Notebook? It can make a fun gift for a family member or friend, or you can customize it to fit your needs for notebooking. There’s really no limit to what you can do with the Spiral Notebook!
