Mamas don’t let your babies grow up…

Hi friends!  Norine here, back with another Traveler’s Notebook layout.

Do you remember when I talked about re-making these Dylusions Traveler’s Notebooks here?  Well, those books are now in the store and just waiting for you to snap them up!

I have the same three notebooks and that has allowed me to take each one apart and to mix up the lined, dotted and graph paper patterns in each book.  Originally they come with one pattern in each book but I like a variety.  Click on thet link above to see exactly how I did that.

Let me tell you, when I’m putting one of these smaller sized layouts together, the old excitement of recording a thought/idea/feeling/memory in a beautiful and engaging way just rises up and I just want to sit there at the table and make page, after page, after page!  I can’t….I have too many other things I need to do….but I want to.

This layout today was inspired by the pair of hummingbirds that returned this spring to build another nest in the tree just outside our backdoor.  They are so fun to watch and attribute human understanding and emotions to!

For the title I pulled out my Tim Holtz Ideology foam letter stamps and stamped with ink.  I wanted a mottled, uneven look to the inked letters so I stamped them off once unevenly onto scrap paper and then stamped them fully onto the notebook page.  Then I  added the “grow” sticker from the Simple Stories Bloom & Grow sticker pack, and the mini-alphabet stickers from the Pink Fresh Boy’s Fort line.  The phrase stickers and wooden circle embellishment are also Pink Fresh Boy’s Fort product, a very versatile line, as you can see.

The leaf on the left side page is a Silhouette cut file, but the heart on the right side page is from a sheet of punch out die cuts.  I added the wooden rimmed #2 button from the same Boy’s Fort line as other product on the page.  Some enamel dots and a heart (Illustrated Faith) and a couple of strips of washi tape complete this layout.

Stop into the store or give Lori a call if there’s anything you’ve see here that you really must have!

Thanks for stopping by today!
