"My Happy Place" A5 Notebook Spread | Sheree ForcierMar 30, 2021
Hi FJ friends!
This year I’ve been adding to my A5 notebook each month and today I have my latest two page spread to share with you featuring the gorgeous Julia Kit! I’m using this notebook to document things about me right now, things that I love and things I just want to remember and I’m really enjoying this project so far. Today’s spread is all about my scrapping space.
I decided on a white cardstock background for one page and full page photo for the other. I like to create my pages outside my notebook first so that I can add things such as stitching and staples before adhering the pages inside.
Across the bottom of both pages I added a strip of the colourful Stripes paper, the green gingham branding strip and the dotty strip from the paper pack packaging all layered together before adding some machine stitching.
On the large photo I created a little cluster on the left side using a chipboard button, a floral die cut and a butterfly die cut. I also added a tiny puffy heart from the puffy alphabet sticker sheet to the chipboard button for another little pop of colour.
For my second page I added a butterfly die cut at the top with foam adhesive. I used the pretty puffy alphabet stickers for my title then did a bit of stamping to create a little label to go at the top of my journaling. I added a phrase from the stamp set to the label as well before adhering it with foam adhesive.
At the bottom half of the page is my journaling which I printed onto white cardstock. Stitching was added to the journaling block for more subtle texture. At the bottom of the journaling I added a large floral die cut with foam adhesive and another chipboard button, then I finished it off with a miniwide paper clip and the date.
If you'd like to watch how I put this all together you can see my process in the video below...
I really love working in this notebook format! It’s such a fun size to play with and if you haven’t tried it I hope I’ve inspired you to give it a go.
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!
