February: Love Is In The Air

It's February, so of course Love is in the Air.  Do you have that song in your head now?

Both of the challenges over at Simon Says Stamp involve Love this week
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Love is in the Air
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is It Must be Love

This gave me the opportunity to pull out my new Kaisercraft die set - yay. It was on clearance down to $7 then they had an extra 30% off craft clearance. Sweet! So it came home with me. I used it in the Travelers Notebook that I am using to document a trip to Australia last year. We went over to celebrate a dear friend's 30th birthday. I have already documented her birthday elsewhere but I still wanted to keep it in the trip notebook as well.

The details will be added later to protect her privacy. I'm using a Pocket Page Notebook from The Stamp Spot. I was excited to turn the pocket page into a shaker page - my first one!  I may have been too keen as I melted/cut the top in some places instead of sealing it. I ended up adding the washi strip on the top to try and keep it all together.

Here's the next page:

I am enjoying using smaller photos to document events. The Travelers Notebook is perfect for both standard and small photos. I'm only 2/3 the way through and my notebook is already FAT! I like big notebooks and I can not lie 😂
