How to make you own Travellers Notebook / Smashbook

This project was so much fun, I’d seen the idea on Pinterest where they used the same kind of folder technique for a smashbook but rather than have booklets in there they had different slots for journalling. I really liked the idea but knew I could adapt it.

After my first attempt I already have a lot of ideas about what I am going to make next and what it will be used for.. watch this space 😉 the process video is HERE!

Eastern Palace Suite : Monochromatic Cards

 One of the best thing about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is getting to see, order and play with the products before they are available to the general public. 

Normally we have to wait to share these with you but this year the lovely people at SU HQ have decided you guys deserve an early treat too. So they have released the Eastern Palace Suite, from the new 2017-2018 catalogue, for us now and for you guys from the 1st May.. how amazing is that?! 

For this weeks “teamie Tuesday” I set the challenge of “Monochromatic” as usually the team took this challenge and made it their own, my version came out like this;

The Eastern Palace Suite is not yet available to pre order, as soon as it is I will let you know on this blog!

Tutorial : How to make an easy folder for a Traveler’s Notebook

Last week I set up my A6 UglyDori with designer papers from Stampin’ Up! Birthday Fiesta range, I love how fun and bright it is but my black purse was making me sad! I wanted something to go round it which would double up as a recipt holder.

I took some Emerald Envy A4 card stock and measured the width of an insert when open, I then added 1/2″ to either side and cut the card down to that. This would work for any size folder but for anything taller than an a6 you’d need 12×12″ cardstock or designer paper.

I love how it covers My purse but it could be used for inserts or as a stand alone folder.
