Today I’m excited to share the first entry into my 2022 Traveler’s Notebook album and it features the gorgeous new Aspen Kit!
This spread is a no photo project since the subject didn’t really need one and the beautiful die cuts from the Aspen kit were perfect for creating a feature page to go along with my journaling. Like so many others, our family ended up isolating at home in January after one of us got covid, so it was something I wanted to include in my album.
I cut my pages from white cardstock and the green Grid paper to 4.75” x 8.25” in size and punched the six holes down the side of each so they could go into the album. I also added a strip of the grid paper at the bottom of the white page and added stitching to both pages.
My printed journaling was adhered to roughly the centre of the white page and I created a little title cluster at the top using the “HOME” die cut and two chipboard pieces from the Aspen Chipboard Bits pack.
Under the journaling I added a row of chipboard hearts in five colours then added the date underneath using a die cut label and the awesome Aspen Stamp Set. Stitching was also added to the journaling, across the date label and the title.
The second page was so fun to put together! I cut a piece of white cardstock to 3.5” x 5” then I rounded the top into an arch shape by tracing around the curve of my double sided tape and cut the curve with my scissors. I used a paper piercer to poke some stitching holes around the arch and hand stitched it using white embroidery thread. I cut the green spotty piece from the paper pack packaging strip and adhered it across the bottom then added stitching to that too.
I was so excited to use the house die cut and tree on this project…they’re adorable together! Once they were in place, I cut two clouds from white cardstock using cloud punches from my stash and added them to the top left of the arch. To finish off I added five chipboard hearts in the same colours as the first page coming up out of the chimney and used a chipboard phrase underneath the house.
All I had to do then was slip the pages onto the rings in my Bella TN Album.

When was the last time you created a no photo project? I hope I’ve inspired you to give it a try if you haven’t!
