Traveler's Notebooks by Lady Nany

Saturday, June 15, 2019

Hello creative friends, it's Lady Nany, and I must confess that since I saw Horizon for the first time I knew that I would use this collection to document a trip (or several). That's why today's post is about Traveler's Notebooks with several of Paige cut files.
To make this first TN I chose Paper 09 and cut it to 10½ x 8½". I decorated the front with Stickers before laminating it. Then I folded it to the middle and 4¼" from the spine, I made a hole to pass the elastic closing cord and decorated with Charms.

Finally to ¼" of the spine (both above and below) I drilled two holes to place the elastic thread that will join more notebooks inside, and done!

To make this notebook I chose Paper 05 for the cover and cut it to 8¼ x 12". Then I doubled to 4¼", 8½" and 8¾" and joined it with two clamps (since first mark) to a group of dotted or smooth 8½" x 8½" sheets.

Once ready, I adapted the Moped Vespa cut file to decorate the cover and filled it with blue papers from the Horizon Project Pad. I used some Stickers from the collection and added volume with foam tape.

For the decoration of the second notebook, I used the Flower Confetti cut file as a stencil and applied modeling paste colored with gelato in blue. While drying, I cut the Signage Post cut file with my Silhouette Cameo and backed it with pink and blue papers. I pasted the design with foam tape and added Stickers and Floral Die Cuts.

I chose Paper 13 to create an envelope and have extra space for photos, cut outs, and materials (I like when I can carry my favorite things!). So, I cut it to 8½ x 12" (vertically for the orientation of the design) and folded it in the middle. Then I rotated the paper and bent to 8¼" leaving a smaller rectangle. From the bottom edge I marked 1¾ " in the middle and then 2½" from the edge forming a triangle. Last, I cut out that figure and pasted the sides. To decorate I splashed metallic watercolors and I used the Wanderlust cut file, backed it with pink papers, plus StickersShaped Paper Clips, and Ephemera Die Cuts. I included a space for pens by cutting a 1 x 3" strip and bending in the middle. In that fold, I made a cut of ½" centered and placed the elastic holding it with an eyelet.

And that's all friends, I hope you've liked these TNs and are encouraged to make some too! Thank you very much for visiting, until next time!

  1. This is just GORGEOUS! LOVING all the details!!!!

  2. Thank you for such great info, including all your measurements ! It's really awesome. I've tried to make one before but never get the elastic right that holds each TN. Does the elastic also show on the outside spine? Thanks for your pretty inspirations !
