My Personal Journal

Traveler's Notebook Spread created for Clique Kits  - MY PERSONAL JOURNAL -

Hello crafty friends!!

 Nathalie here with  some new entries on my personal journal -my TN- inspired by the beautiful Aquarelle kits (main and TN).   This month's TN kit features the beautiful "Wildflower" collection from Kaisercraft, as well as plenty of embellishments, and exclusive printables that make memory keeping so easy and pleasurable.  

Aquarelle TN

   Since the weather is finally changing here in Toronto, I am taking advantage of long doggie walks around the Humber River path behind my house.  The papers in the Aquarelle TN kit were perfect to document the beauty of Spring in the city.  Here is a small video on how this page came together:

   It took less than 10 minutes to put this page together.   I picked one of the papers in the kit, and used both sides to cover both pages of the TN ( each page features a side of the paper).

  CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-4  I picked my 3 favorite pictures of the walk, and printed them in a film strip form using Lightroom.  This was then glued to one of the pages of the TN -i chose the one with a less busy pattern on it-.   Pieces from the Aquarelle TN Kit's die cuts and exclusives were used to decorate the page   CK_NATHALIE DESOUSA_JUNE2017_MY PERSONAL JOURNAL-3

 The exclusive printables in this month's Aquarelle TN kit  are perfect to add small details around the page.  In this particular case,  one of the cards houses all the details of my walk around the river path.  Here is the final spread:


 The color combination of the papers in the Aquarelle TN Kit was perfect to document all this Spring memories, and it took less than 10 minutes to complete the spread.  It is that easy to work with this kit.  

 If you are a subscriber to both  Main and TN kits, then this month's pizza box  is going to be a dream for all memory keepers. Since you can easily incorporate bits and pieces from both kits in your projects.    Here is an example of how I combined pieces of both kits to complete the spread of our favorite Mother's Day portrait, just sit down, and enjoy the video:  

      We love this picture, and i  wanted it to be prominent on my memory keeping system, so I chose to enlarge the image to fit the entire TN spread.    First i cut the picture in half so that i can easily glue to the TN.


 Before gluing the right side of the picture, a small pocket was created behind the picture, so that it can hold a tag  (from the Aquarelle main kit exclusive printables) with all the journal lines about this memory.


 To complete embellishing this page, one of the fabric tags, included in the Aquarelle main kit, along with a die cut from the TN kit were glued to the top corner of the left side of the page.  The arrow clip was then used to hold these pieces together,  and a small asterisk from the main kit Alphas complete this cluster.


 Finally one of the labels from the Aquarelle TN kit's exclusive printables was used to add the date and place of the picture.  The copper Pinkfresh Studio alphas was then used to create the title of this page.  Here is the complete spread:


 This is by far one of my favorite spreads of the past 2 weeks in my spread.  The texture from the different embellishments from both Aquarelle kits just adds the perfect touches to the picture.  If you haven't checked the kits, there are still a few available at the Clique store, and you better rush to pick yours.

 Remember i am a comment away if you have any questions on how these came together.

   Thanks for stopping by!
