Then, I added some letters. Some were stickers. At least one was a chipboard letter that I didn't even cover. I liked the neutral color against the patterned paper.
Leaving it this way would be fine if you had a notebook that was already sectioned off like one of those 3 or 5-subject notebooks. This one was not, so I decided to embellish a little with some tabs of my own. You can see them peeking out of the top.
I used some little chipboard embellishments. I think they came from a Scrapaganza kit that a friend gave me for my birthday. Some of them were meant to be tags and already had holes punched, but some of them weren't, so I used a paper punch to punch holes to add brads.
The tags were a little heavy for the notebook paper, so I added a small piece of cardstock to the paper and then attached the tags.
I keep this journal in my studio for moments of inspiration, but I think a pocket-sized one would be great to keep with you always to jot down funny things the kids say or your sentiments when taking a photo.
Happy journaling everyone!
