Summer Scrapbooking~ Traveler’s Notebook Style

This summer I am using a standard size Traveler’s Notebook insert for all my scrapbooking and memory keeping of the day to day. You can see my cover and first pages HERE I am adding 4 x 6 photos and do have to trim some of the photo edges to fit inside. I’m enjoying the process, it’s simple and quick and surprisingly… I am journaling more! I always felt some of my 12 x 12 scrapbook pages lacked the story and with this process I find myself telling the story more. I LOVE that. Here are my layouts..

Travel with a Traveler’s Notebook

I have created a travel notebook to go traveling… yes I’m going on a trip. A trip I have wanted to take since I was a kid, I’m going to go see my Uncle and Aunt in Ohio. I am completely excited!!! Truth is I get to be a kid somewhat, I’m traveling with my parents for the drive there and then flying back by myself. I have never driven in the east part of the United States so I plan on documenting my trip using a Traveler’s Notebook Insert. Yes Cupcake Gal is Traveling…

Cupcake Gal Travels

I inserted different scrapbook pages to add a whimsical element to my notebook

Mrs. Brimble’s July Unboxing

Mrs. Brimbles Unboxing I’m back with another video of the unboxing of the Brimble’s Box. What is the Brimble’s Box? Well it is a fun box that can be purchased once or by a monthly subscription full of stationery goodness! I recently discovered her through You Tube and although she lives in the UK and the shipping can be quite expensive I had to have it!!!  Here is where you can find Mrs. Brimbles. I do hope the more videos I do the more relax I become, so here is my first unboxing… Please note the Ice Cream photo at top is Mrs. Brimble’s Art
