One Little Bird-Custom Travelers Notebook Inserts & Folder

Hello again!  This year I am really trying to document more stories.  I am trying to dig a little deeper into my thoughts and feelings and tell a more complete picture.  To help me stay focused on my memory keeping intention I am starting first with the story then letting the products and embellishments support.

One way I am keeping myself on track is by keeping a story journal.  Everyday I sit down and jot a few notes, gratitudes, impressions or quotes that touched me that day.  This makes it easier when I sit down to complete my spreads to keep the focus on the words and photos.  I start FIRST with story and photos then pick supporting embellishments.

I created two travelers notebook inserts to act as my story journals. I also created a folder with pockets to hold memorabilia from the week that I might want to include in my spread.  I also tucked in the Monthly Journal Card so I could easily find any dates to fill in my notebook.

The first notebook contains lined paper to write longer journaling, story prompts and impressions.

The second notebook contains a weekly calendar with spaces to fill in daily notes and a grid to plan out my weekly Project Life spread.

I also wanted to tuck just a few journal cards into the folder so I could jot down my journaling right on to a card and insert it in to my spread to save time on busy weeks.

I kept the embellishments to a minimum since I don’t have a lot of space in my travelers notebook for bulk.  I am so excited to start using this to document my stories throughout the week.  I hope this will lead to more personal and meaningful spreads.  Next month I will be sure to give you an update on how it is working!  If you have any questions please let me know!

Have a beautiful day & go out and make some beautiful memories!
