Gratitude Journal Entry with Kelly

By Kelly Holbrook

October 17, 2017

Hello everyone! It’s Kelly here today sharing my first entry in the Today I am Grateful Traveler’s Notebook.

I am using the notebook as a gratitude journal. I would like to have an entry for everyday in November…Maybe if I start now, I won’t get behind 🙂

I just love the colors in this month’s kit, and just so happened to have a photo of me and my husband in the same blue and orange combo.  The navy chevron pattern is awesome, and made a perfect background for the IF chipboard leaf.

I will never run out of things to be grateful for, and am excited to document as many as I can with this month’s kit! Thanks for stopping by today!

Thankful | Jen McMurtrey

Happy Monday everyone!

It’s Jen today sharing the beginnings of my gratitude journal for November. I decided to begin early to build in a few spreads before I move onto the actual journal and start the daily entries.

First up is the cover. I used this beautiful gold, white, and brown patterned paper from the Today I am Thankful printable bundle. The paper was cut in half, which fits the cover of the travelers notebook perfectly. Before I adhered it to the cover of the notebook, I machine stitched along the tops of each of the brown lines to give it a little dimension. I followed that with the Freckled Fawn washi tape and Illustrated Faith chipboard leaves.

The first spread in my notebook uses the yellow/triangle patterned paper, which I printed on transparency film. I cut it down to size and layered the dark blue patterned papers on top. Next came the picture, which was printed with my Instax printer and adhered with Mono glue.  I used the tag – an exclusive Scrapbook Circle cut file included with the bundle – and stamped a sentiment using distress oxide ink. Last was the leaf and date stamp.

The right side of the spread contains my journaling. I used Moms Typewriter font with my word processing program and printed it on white paper. Next, I adhered it to the top of my patterned papers and added another leaf from Illustrated Faith as well a fussy leaf from the printable bundle. At the top I stapled the blessed tag using my Tiny Attacher. Last, I splattered black ink across both pages to fill in some of the white and tie it all together.

The finished spread turned is great and I love the beautiful fall colors!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please stop by the Scrapbook Circle shop for more inspiration and information on the printable bundles.


Gratitude Journal: A Recipe

By Jenni Calma

October 11, 2017

Hey there!  Jenni here today to share the beginnings of my Gratitude Journal using the ‘Today I Am Thankful” Shipped Bundle as well as the Printable Bundle.  After looking at all the designs & graphics included, I decided to approach this journal almost like a December Daily Album.  I wrote out ideas of things I was thankful for, starting with everyday things, to the most important in my life.

I decided to make a journal page for each day leading up to Thanksgiving.  After making this decision, I prepared all the pieces in the kit I wanted to use, coming up with a “recipe” for each page in the journal.  I made a list of all the photos and topics I wanted to include.

After printing all the photos in a 2″x 2″ square, I used a stitched die to cut out pieces of the patterned paper.  I adore the rich navy, coral and ochre colors in this kit.  I decided to use one element from each of the included printable cut aparts; phrases & labels, a chipboard sticker, enamel heart stickers and some of the flowers I fussy cut.I used some small alpha stamps to add a title or subject to each page and some interest with washi or more printables.I tried to keep it simple, using one photo per page and not clutter it too much with embellishments.The complimentary colors and large scale graphics worked great with my photos.I love these paper clip layered embellishments from Paige Evans for Pink Paislee. I have planned out the entire journal and will be sharing it over the coming weeks.  I hope you enjoyed looking at the first few pages!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Check out the other team projects using this kit and come back for more ideas and info!

I really like how versatile the colors are and the embellishments are SO fun!

Traveler’s Notebook Photo Pockets

By Rebecca Keppel

October 5, 2017

The brand new Scrapbook Circle Collection (Today I Am Thankful) is perfect for an attitude of gratitude journal or for making a thirty days of thankful album.

I am planning on turning my bundle into a Thirty Days of Thankful Album and I want to get a jump start on putting all the bones of the album together now. This way when November rolls around and I am getting busy with holiday planning, I can just add photos and journaling!

I decided to turn my first page into a photo pocket to hold lots of little photos or other memorabilia. Check out this video I filmed to see all the kit contents up close and see how quickly I made this pocket.

Are you excited about fall and creating thankful albums? You will LOVE this new collection!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello and welcome to the Scrapbook Circle blog!  I have to tell you I loved working with the Paradise Cove bundle-packed full of goodies!

Today I wanted to share a short process video of how this layout came together.



Paradise Cove: Summer Fun Layout

By Kelly Holbrook

September 29, 2017

Hi everyone! It’s Kelly here today sharing one final project created with the Paradise Cove Exclusive Bundle…

After starting out with a Bible Journaling and devotional entry, and then moving on to a card set…I decided I wanted to try a little bit of everything with this versatile kit, and am finishing up with an 8.5×11 layout.

I started with white cardstock and used several of the patterned papers in different shapes for a background. The green palm tree paper is 5×5 to mat my 3.5×3.5 Instagram photo.

I enjoyed layering quite a few tags and stickers from the kit, and even popped up the littlest flamingo with some foam tape to add dimension. I finished up with some washi tape at the bottom of the page to ground some journaling.

Be sure to stop by the Scrapbook Circle shop to download/purchase your kit! Thanks for stopping by today!

California Dreams with Paradise Cove

By Jennifer McMurtrey

September 28, 2017

Hey everyone!

It’s Jen today with another layout using the super-awesome Paradise Cove printable bundle from Scrapbook Circle. I love that I have been able to print and reprint the papers and embellishments to complete one project after another.

This project is an 8 1/2 by 11 layout that uses three of the patterned papers. To get the striped effect on the white card stock, I cut each of the patterned papers into one-inch strips and then machine stitched to the card stock. I didn’t worry about the strips being perfectly aligned or straight – I simply set them on the card stock and began sewing.

The photo I printed is 5 x 5 and I wanted it to be larger so it was prominent on the page. I used several of the die cut embellishments available with Paradise Cove bundle along with two of the printable sentiments. I also used the DIY roller stamp to record the date on a tag, which I tucked behind the top of the photo.

The title was created using Pinkfresh Studio puffy sticker alphas from a previous Scrapbook Circle kit. I position it at the top and bottom of the photo.

To finish the project, I added one tiny bit of journaling, doodles around the border, and some black enamel dots from my stash.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to create! Be sure to visit the Scrapbook Circle shop to pick up your bundle today!


Using Instagram Stories for Journaling in Traveler’s Notebooks

By Rebecca Keppel

September 26, 2017

I mentioned in my first Paradise Cove blog post, that I printed my Instagram Stories photos and used them in my Traveler’s Notebooks. And when I do that, I tend not to need to add additional journaling.

When I’ve added text to my Insta Stories and print them, they come ready made with their own little bits of journaling!

Add some Paradise Cove printables, a few embellishments from the Bundle and call it done!

Since Insta Stories photos are not always great quality, printing them out on a contact sheet and printing them very small and then using them in Traveler’s Notebooks works out great! Do you ever print your Insta Stories?

Thanks for stopping by!
