Hey everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend! I'm happy to be here today to share a new project with you. Last weekend, I went to PlannerCon 2017 in San Francisco and had a great time meeting some of my online friends in real life! It was a fantastic experience and I knew I wanted to document my trip once I returned home. I decided to use a travelers notebook since I could include photos, stories and ephemera from the trip all in one place.

There are so many pretty travelers notebook inserts in the Felicity Jane shop and I chose this pretty floral one that I had in my stash. I chose some items from this month's Jane kit including the stamp set, cut-apart sheet of patterned paper, cut-apart die cuts, washi tape strips and black cardstock die cuts. I also pulled out some black cardstock alphabet stickers from the shop to use for the title on my notebook and the dates inside.

Since the notebook itself is quite busy and colorful, I opted to keep the cover simple by just placing some letter/number stickers on the front. Inside, I used a mix of the products along with photos and pieces of ephemera I collected like restaurant business cards, etc. I especially loved that this month's stamp set included the phrase "details of the day" and used it throughout the notebook as a prompt to tell my daily stories. Also, the "a little me time" stamp was perfect for the title page of this fun girls' weekend!

Here's how I documented each day. I collected business cards, napkins, etc. from wherever we went and took lots of photos which I printed in small squares. I also took some screenshots from my phone to print and include inside. The book has a very "handmade" look to it and reminds me of the types of scrapbooks I would have put together when I was younger. I included my own handwriting to give it more of a journal/diary feel and love how it turned out. I had a wonderful weekend and now have a cute little book with lots of fun memories captured!

Hope this project gave you some ideas on how you can use a travelers notebook and how you can incorporate ephemera from your travels or daily life into your memory keeping. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
