Planner Spread: Traveler’s Notebook

Planners come in all sizes, shapes and forms...and Traveler's Notebooks are one of the newest trends in all things planners! @pinkpaislee @ahorton #pinkpaislee #ppmoonstruck #travelersnotebook #planner

Are you on the Planner bandwagon? There are so many planners out there and so many ways to use them, whether you’re actually using it to plan on a daily/weekly/yearly basis, using it for jotting down ideas or doodling, or whether you’re into using Traveler’s Notebooks. I tried going the daily planner route for awhile, but it just didn’t fit my personality. Then, I discovered Traveler’s Notebooks and I am now officially addicted! Traveler’s Notebooks can be used for anything your creative mind might imagine. I am using mine as a smaller version for scrapbooking and I really love the change.

For this spread, I used the Moonstruck collection to document a photo of… well, the moon! I decided to play around with my camera back in January and see if I could get a good photo of the moon with my tripod. After several shots, I was successful! I knew I wanted to document the photo with the Moonstruck collection, but I had not decided how I wanted to use it on a layout. Then I discovered Traveler’s Notebooks and I knew this would be a perfect way to document the photo.

I like to use the same techniques and elements in my Traveler’s Notebooks as I do on my scrapbook layouts. The major difference is heavier, bulkier embellishments. I like to work with the flatter embellishments in my TN, to keep the pages from being weighted down. If I want to use machine stitching, I stitch my embellishments before adhering them inside the TN. I typically like to cover one side of the TN spread with a patterned paper and then add my photo to the other page.

If you’re a planner girl or thinking about getting started with a planner, check out the Traveler’s Notebook trend. It’s a fun way to keep all of your memories together or keep up with all of the things you have going on in your daily life!

    Love this idea! My question is: do you make your own TN or are you using a pre-made one? And what kind of “cover” are you using?

    i would love to see more design ideas and tutorials for this great idea!

    Thank you!

      Hi Claire! I am using pre-made TN. Most of my notebooks and cover have been purchased on Amazon, but there are some scrappy places that are offering them now, too.
