Traveler’s Notebook Mixed Media Layout – Lego Batman

The husband and I watched Lego Batman around the time it was released in Malaysia and of course, I had to do a layout in my traveler’s notebook. The movie was awesome! It had so many funny jokes and pop culture references that my head couldn’t keep up after a while. But still a fun watch!

On a side note, my insert is getting really, really chunky and I haven’t reached the middle yet. It’s a little worrying. I’m prepared to remove the staples in the center spine if the need arises.

Anyhoo, have you watched Lego Batman and what did you think about the movie?

Hope you enjoyed the little process video and thanks for watching!

Traveler’s Notebook Flip Through and Updated Setup

It’s been absolutely ages since I last uploaded a video but I wanted to film my latest traveler’s notebook setup. I’m using it as a creative journal and am starting to enjoy it more. I never used it regularly before because I was trying to set it up as a planner but it didn’t work out for me.

As a journal though, I’m free to stick all sorts of things inside. Even doing mixed media when I feel like it.

I hope you enjoy the video of this flip through and do let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks so much for watching!

Winter Birthday Card

I wanted to use the deer head diecut from the Maggie Holmes Open Book set again and seeing that Simon Says Stamp has a new Wednesday Challenge called “Winter Birthday”, well antlers and snow seems to come to mind. Well, at least to my mind.

This is a relatively simple card with the birthday greeting stamped in Encore Ultimate Metallic Gold ink using Hero Arts Many Everyday Messages stamp set. The gold ink is rather subtle and doesn’t really show up on screen. I added a punched out glitter gold snowflake for that slightly more wintery element.

Square Masculine Birthday Card

So Simon Says Stamp has a new Monday Challenge and that is Be Square. I just received the WRMK Next Level geometric embossing folders today and wanted to try them out along with the deer head from Maggie Holmes Open Book die set, which I cut from a wood patterned paper.

The “birthday” word was cut using Papertrey Ink’s die and the music notes background is actually a thin origami paper from Daiso. Those Next Level embossing folders are amazing! I can’t wait to experiment on glitter paper and perhaps get more designs soon.

This is a 4″ square card using a plain white cardstock base.


Golden Love Heart Card

Hello, again! Here’s another card for both the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and Wednesday Challenge, which happen to have a similar theme, and that is to use something new that I haven’t used before. And I thought the perfect thing was to use the Neat & Tangled Heart of Gold die that I bought from SSS last year but didn’t get around to using. And just in time for Valentine’s too.

Every element on this card is brand new to me. I embossed the background using Amy Tangerine’s Love Spun embossing folder and the word “LOVE” is stamped using MFT’s Label Maker Sentiments set.

The heart was cut using two different glitter foam papers. One in a shimmery pearl white and one in a bright gold. I then carefully stuck the fragmented pieces onto a cardstock as a base and inserted the heart outline after. It was tedious but so worth the effort as the end result is absolutely beautiful. I opted to go for a plain white background because I wanted the heart to take center stage.
