Be Kind to You Note to Self Binder Spread | Sheree ForcierMay 09, 2019
Hello FJ Friends!
Today I’d like to share with you my latest Note to Self binder spread. Did you know that there is smaller version of the Megan papers in a 6 x 6 paper pack available separately in the store? When you’re scrapping in a smaller size like in your binder or traveler’s notebook, the scaled down patterns are just perfect! I was especially excited about the gorgeous rainbow paper and couldn’t wait to use it.
I started by cutting two A5 sized pages from the yellow 12 x 12 paper in the Megan Kit, then I cut down two of the Note to Self A5 grid insert pages to create a border around my spread. Once the grid inserts were adhered to the yellow background, I repunched the holes using the A5 grid insert as a guide and added a stitched border.
I flipped the pages over and added some temporary washi tape to the back to hold the two pages together while I created the rest of the page design. I fussy cut the rainbow out of the 6 x 6 rainbow paper, then adhered the it across the middle of the two pages. I left out the smallest of the rainbow bands because the positioning of it would have required it to have holes punched through it which I didn’t want.
The Megan Puffy Alphabet was curved around the outside edge of the rainbow for the title with the addition of a puffy heart sticker to dot the “i”. I then stamped two sentiments from the Megan and Essentials No 1 stamp sets along two of the rainbow bands.
The photo was tucked in behind some of the rainbow bands on an angle, then I added some stitching, a paper bow, a mint mini wide paper clip and a tiny tag stamped with the date. The vellum butterflies were adhered to the pages with sticky dots, then I added the journaling strips and some stitching. To finish off I removed the washi from the back of the spread and carefully cut through the middle of the rainbow to separate the pages.
I absolutely love the colors in this kit and the rainbows, butterflies and paper bows are adorable! Don't forget to check out the shop for all the little extras that coordinate with this kit too. There's the 6 x 6 Paper Pack that I've used, metal dies and more! You won't want to miss out!
If you'd like to watch how it all came together you can see it all in the video below...
Thank you so much for joining me on the blog today! I look forward to sharing another project with you soon!
