Scale It Down! A Travelers Notebook Collaboration


I am so excited to be the guest designer for a fun collaboration called Scale It Down with two super talented scrap bosses, Simone Schermann and Suzanna Lee! According to Suzanna, Scale It Down is all about “helping scrapbookers incorporate travelers notebooks into their memory keeping”.

GRAB 5 CHALLENGE! This week we are focusing on using five items to create a TN spread.

The Grab 5 Includes:

  1. Pattern papers
  2. Sticker fonts
  3. Stamps
  4. Tabs
  5. Chipboard (or card stock) die cuts

Suzanna and Simone Title Card

For this spread, I used elements from the Felicity Jane Jeana Kit.

To begin, I trimmed two pieces of pattern paper to 4×8 inches. To the right panel, I layered a 3×4 photo with a 3×4 pocket card. To the photo I added a chipboard heart for dimension and interest. Above the photo, I positioned a small journaling card that reads “details”. To the card I added journaling strips that I printed on velum paper. Next, I ran each strip through a Xyron Sticker Maker and adhered the strips to the card.

To finish the right panel, I attached a tab that I created using a We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch and stamped the sentiment “Just What I Needed” from the Jeana Stamp Set by Felicity Jane. To the left of the journaling card, I adhered a cute plant die cut.

To the left panel, I layered another 3×4 photo on a 3×4 journaling card.

To the photo I added two chipboard hearts. Under the photo I stamped the sentiment “My Favorite Place” and adhere my title using two Felicity Jane sticker fonts.
