I Like Big Photos And I Cannot Lie

Okay, so I like them big and narrow. Is it just me or do the photos you see in Instagram Stories just seem so much more impressive than seeing it in a square? The crop factor just makes it so amazing! Of course, I do follow a few 'travel' type websites, so they really have the wow factor in that perspective. I think that's why I love the TN size. I love that tall and narrow format. And throw in a photo of the same size? Oooh, gives me goosebumps...just like what you see here in Miss Marcy's travelers notebook [...]

Welcome Melissa Morrelli!

I have been known to stalk on occasion. It's true. I admit it. I don't follow a lot of people on Instagram because, to be honest, I prefer not having so much in my feed. But on occasion I've been known to look at 'Based on People you Follow' or maybe I'll go out and catch up with someone that has been known to tickle my fancy with their wondrous creations. Melissa Morrelli was just such a person...until I finally decided to follow her...and finally decided that this girl needed to be on the KBS Creative Team! Everyone say hello our newest [...]

Tiny Details

I love adding the tiniest details to my pages--and that usually comes in the form of a stamp. Tiny little words, tiny little lines, tiny little accents...the tiny details that take your page up a notch. It's my favorite way to accent. I did manage to whip up a second spread. Two in a week? Yay me again! Here it is, with all its tiny details. :)     As with yesterday's page, I used my Misti Stamp Tool to place the stamps as needed. Because I remove the staples from my book and bind it with a large rubber [...]

Capitol Reef Is In The Books

I'm pretty darn good about getting each week documented......on my computer. Getting them 'into the books' is often a different story. I need to make a habit to get 1-2 weeks done each week, otherwise, I'm never gonna get 'em in, right? So here is this week's page from Mother's Day this past May when all I wanted was to go camping with my family. I plan on making a different book to document the trip, but the memory of that week is in my main journal.       Keeping it simple. Getting it done. On this spread I [...]

Long Story Short

I think one of the main reason's why I love a travelers notebook is because you can document a bit of time in a small amount of space. I love the idea of keeping things small and efficient. At least that's how I've been feeling the past two or three years. We'll see what happens in two or three more. ;) I like the idea of keeping the long story short. Not every 'story' needs all the details. It's more about documenting a slice of life. Sometimes, less is more. And I love what our darling Marcy has to share with [...]

Travelers Templates in Holiday Style!

  I love having choices...variety....getting the most bang for my buck, as it were. And that's why I thought it would be awesome to have a set of templates that wouldn't be specific to one holiday, but two...and even all year long. Today I present to you, Travelers Templates: Holiday Style.   This unique set of ten templates has a variety options for text and photos. Even though these were made with Christmas and Thanksgiving (gratitude + family) in mind, many are universal and can be used all year. They are 4.125 x 8.25 to fit into a traveler's notebook. Additionally, [...]

Happy Stuff

One of the things I love so much about word stamps is that with one little stamp you've so quickly and simply kicked your page up a notch. You add some visual interest to your page while saying something. Text has been and always will be my favorite element on a page. Take a look at what Marcy has done here in her traveler's notebook.         Here's what Marcy has to say: One thing I love about little stamps that KBS does so well is that they can be so easily combined.  For this spread I combined a [...]

Pretty Paper Swatches

I love keeping memories in my travel journal. Love the blank canvas. I've been a white background girl for many years and this format is so up my alley. But just because I love that blank (neutral) canvas, doesn't mean I don't like splashing a bit of color. In fact, that's why I love the blank canvas--because it makes that splash of color, photos and journaling shine. And my girl Marcy? She does this in most excellent fashion in the neutrals kraft and white. Take a look.     [ Stamps: Side By Side (good stuff) and Ashland (numbers) ]   [...]

Plan It: Fundamentals

  Well. It's finally happened. I officially had to join the ranks of the planner world. It's not like I've never had a planner or used one. Heck I even designed specific planners for our team at WordPerfect back in the early 90s. But overall, I've always been able to keep track of things in my head. I'd write some of the kids' events on the calendar over the years, but really, I've never had a need for a planner. Not to mention, I always felt like it took more time than it was worth for me. These days, planners [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | Olive Branch

This week I felt like being leafy. And any time Kass and I use the word leafy, we have to say it in our Phoebe Buffay voice when they are playing a game to win the apartment back. She asks each team what their favorite thing about trees is, and one answers they're green and one answers they're tall. "Both are good answers," she says, "but we were looking for leafy, leeeaafy," one of the best episodes. Anywaaaaay... :) So my mind immediately went to an olive branch. I love the thin and delicate look of an olive branch. And it doesn't mean you need [...]
