Travelers Notebook Challenge!

Hello, there!  I am so excited to be back with you to give you a little fun challenge for your travelers notebook!  I am a big fan of using my travelers notebook inserts for everything - planning, memory keeping and lists.  One of the things I love to do most in those inserts is STAMP! Do you stamp in yours? No matter the answer, let's get to the challenge!

 For today's challenge, I am personally using the September Heartbreaker Pocket Life Kit and the This Is Life, Magic Happens stamp set. However, you definitely can use whatever materials you love! My challenge is this: use patterned papers and/or pocket page cards to stamp on!  That's right - no plain cardstock for us!  [Well, okay, you can include that as well. But, as an accent!] We're going to use those patterns and make them work for us!

I think that this looks so cool and it's one of my favorite techniques.  Depending on what you're going to use the shapes for can help determine if you use a busy pattern or a more neutral pattern.  I wanted to stick to a red + yellow + black color palette since I was documenting Disney -- but you can use your photos and materials to choose your patterns.

Don't those look great?!  I think they make pretty much the perfect embellishment, since we were able to customize them completely.  You don't have to worry about what to use to color the images and you don't have to think about if you have the right color ink pad.  Just use what you've got!

Do you see the red ticket with the word Enjoy?  Do you remember how that was a 3x4" pocket life card?  I think that just turned out positively amazing!  It's even better than I imagined and is so perfect for this space. I also love how the black ink gives each of these pieces of patterned paper a distinctive edge or frame. So cool!

I also highly recommend having a few extras.  You don't know if you'll need them, and if you don't, you can add them to your stash for next time!

Are you going to play along with my challenge?  I sure hope so!  It's really fun and I think you'll enjoy it, too.  If you do, make sure you share on the Citrus Twist Facebook page or tag Citrus Twist on Instagram so we can see!
