Process Video #54: Travelers Notebook

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 10/17/2019 - 00:00

I made my own travelers notebook with pockets by taking a notebook apart and adding in some pocket pages. Then I stuck the staple back in. I used one of these pockets to make a shaker pocket with some sequins and my fuse tool in the top pocket, and put a photo in the bottom pocket. Some clustering on both sides of the notebook finish this spread off. Papers from Allison Pennington’s Awkward Collection.

I've been uploading kits and bundles to Pixel Scrapper for seven years. That means there's a lot of fun stuff, but sometimes it can be overwhelming. Here are a few of my favorites from the archive:

Jordan and I are happy to announce that a baby girl will be joining our family near the beginning of March. Magnus is unclear on the situation and thinks the new pink clothes are for him. We are quite excited and grateful for this community that has supported our family for so many years and I look forward to sharing our coming journey with you all here.

Watch Me Digital Scrapbook: Week 23 2019

By Marisa Lerin Sat, 10/12/2019 - 00:00

For this spread I’m using the Wildflower Collection from Anita Designs. The bolder colors of this collection suited the outdoor and graduation photos from this week. I prove with this spread my aversion to themed bundles. Some nice graduation elements at least might have been nice, but that thought never even occurred to me. Themed collections just aren’t my thing I guess. Do you enjoy using a collection with a theme?

I’m using the lovely Blue Skies Ahead Collection by Kristin Cronin-Barrow on this travelers notebook spread. Before filming I created a yellow splatter background with some acrylic paint. To make the design work, I use a little paper cluster with the photo on the right side, and a strip of black and white stripes on the left. Some beautiful flower clusters bring the two pages together.

Watch Me Digital Scrapbook: Week 19 2019

We recently moved and in that move I lost the nice office space I had in our last house. Without a dedicated desk for my computer (I do still have a craft desk) I’ve given up my second monitor. This is a bit annoying for me, but probably a boon in these videos because now you can see the folder I’m dragging all my papers and elements from.

A fun paper cluster on the left side of the notebook, and after a lot of struggles with the right side I end up leaving it blank. Background paper from Allison Pennington “Today” collection.
