Hi everyone! Mandy here today to share my first project using the beautiful Mila kit! Who else is totally swooning over the gorgeous florals in this kit?! And the colors… So pretty!! I decided that for my first project using this kit, that I’d create a traveler’s notebook spread featuring a photo of my new vintage typewriter!
I wanted to use lots of the soft, muted colors on this spread to give it a vintage feel to match the photo. So first of all, I covered the left hand side of the spread with the diagonal striped patterned paper (only the light pink section). I then added one of the 3x4 journal cards to this page, and I used this as a pocket to tuck my journaling tag into. Some machine stitching down the sides and across the bottom of the card gave it the look of a pocket and also added some nice texture to the page. I also added one of the pretty foam stickers on top, and used this as the title for the layout.
I mostly use hand-written journaling in my TN inserts, but of course I had to use my typewriter to add my journaling to this page! I typed it onto to some plain paper first and then cut it up into strips, which I then adhered to one of the tags from the die cut pack. I also tied some cotton twine through it to finish it off. I LOVE the glittery gold detail on this tag!!
I layered another one of the journaling cards behind my photo, and then I embellished around the photo using bits and pieces from the die cut shapes pack. I also added a little fishtail banner up in the top right hand corner of the page. The die cuts are definitely one of my favorite things in this kit!
Of course I couldn’t go past adding one of the floral die cuts to the page! The last thing I did was add some stamping using the ‘love’ stamp from the Mila stamp set.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! Happy crafting!
