Easter Traveler's Notebook Album

If you love traveler's notebooks then you must give this fun mini album a try!  These notebook albums are great for swaps, gifts and because this is Easter-themed, it's perfect for an Easter basket.


For the cover: I took a 12X12 sheet of double-sided paper from the "Hoppy Easter" Collection and trimmed down to 7.25" X 11.25".  Next I scored the 11.25" length at 5 3/8" and 5 7/8".  I used a heat laminator to laminate both sides of the paper but this is optional.  If you look to create these as gifts or to sell I would highly recommend investing in this handy tool!

As you can see above, I punched to small holes into the "spine" of the cover and threaded through white elastic cording to hold the inserts in place.  

For the closure I also added a length of the same elastic cording.  To do so: create a small hold in the center of the spine and insert a knotted band of the elastic through the hole.  I tied on some ribbon from my stash and made a cute embellished tag to match the cover!

For the inside: To the two elastic loops on the inside of the notebook, I created two booklets from smooth white cardstock and a cover of patterned paper.  For each booklet I cut three sheets of white cardstock to measure 7"X10"; the cover measures 7.5"X10.25".  The sheets were folded in half and then sandwiched together.  I did choose to machine stitch down the center of the notebook, but again this optional.  


The notebook pages were decorated with journal cards, greeting cards, doilies, stickers, die-cuts, washi tape, sprinkles and more coordinates! I also made the journal cards interactive by creating them into little flip-up cards.




So whether you add more inserts, dashboards or pockets, the possibilities are endless when designing these fun notebook albums!  I hope that you'll give it a try!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
