How do you document summer stories?
I've been thinking a lot lately about what I might want to use as a home for some summer stories this year + decided to use an older Art Of Noticing notebook as my jumping off point. I wanted something that felt casual + playful where I could easily add in a full page photo or a full page of patterns or stamping or words depending on what mood I was in at the time. No rules. Just a home for stories.
Want to play along with me this summer? Grab a notebook and have some fun capturing the little + big stories that make up your summer adventures.
Here's what I've added so far:
Cork words are from the July Stories By The Month kit coming out next week.
The lemon pattern paper is from American Crafts. It's so bright and fun and I'm not sure I would have used it if I wasn't starting this little album where I feel really free to just try out some things and add in patterns I just happen to love. I decided after I cut up the paper that I wanted it to cover both pages so that's why the pattern doesn't meet up in the middle. The pocket envelope + journal card was a recent add on option for kit subscribers. I added a bit of yellow ribbon to the top of the journal card to make it easy to pull it out of the pocket + I wrote a bit about my intentions for this notebook.
