I designed this in Publisher and got the beautiful teapot and tea cup from The Graphics Fairy. I printed it out and then took it to Office Max to colour copy onto Kraft-Tex.
I painted the inside covers to look tea stained, and I used Mum's favourite tea cup to make the tea rings. I used Garden Tea Party scrapbook paper to make the pockets on the front and back inside covers.
I kinda went a little crazy with the charms:
Then I modified them:
Unfortunately, this was too small to hold all the inserts, so I made a second Tea Time Traveler's Notebook & made the spine twice as wide at 2 inches. I forgot to mention on the video that I made the spine using a piece of cardboard from a Borax box. :-) And here it is:
|Tea pot charm on left . The heart & paw charms are from Michael's, |
and the fake British coin of Queen Elizabeth is from JoAnn's.
I have 8 inserts, along with a two-year calendar. The first is the Daily:
I plan each day, the night before, a day on a page. I do a mind map for the week on Sunday on an index card, and a month on a larger index card (not pictured):
The second is an Errands insert (not pictured) and the third is a Quotes insert:
|This is the last week of June when I was going to use a brown Papermate Inkjoy as my one pen, but|
switched to blue before I moved to a Coleto before I FINALLY settled on a black, Papermate Inkjoy. Whew!
|That's a black, Papermate Inkjoy pen that I got at the Dollar Tree.|
Last insert, projects insert:
Back of notebook with pocket:
Here are my journals:
|From top to bottom: |
Quotes, Gratitude, Dunhill-dori, Dog journal, Seminar notes journal, Reading journal, Morning
Pages, Projects notebook, and 2016 Labyrinth planner. Not pictured is my work planner.
My regular journal, the Dunhill-dori:
|Piccadilly notebooks from Barnes & Noble.|
A New Purpose for My Bible-dori! I was so inspired watching Ali Brown's video on her traveler's notebook wallet. So here it is:
The first thing is my Travelon Safe ID Credit Card Wallet. It prevents criminals from stealing your credit / debit card information, as well as driver's license, passport, security key information or hotel key information.
|Check registers and pocket space for receipts.|
Awesome leather wallet to house my other cards.
And that's it!
HAPPY One Book July! :-)
Here's my video show and tell:
SOME people will say it's too long and blathery. [smirk] I did do 3 other short videos for my "tight 5" that all ended up blurry, so in the end, I just posted this. Also, watching this back, I'm astonished at how many times I say, "UM." I don't do that with Magnolia May, go figure.
