So Punny | Traveller's Notebook set up with Anabelle

Traveler's Notebooks are so versatile for daily planning. I love how you can make them suit your needs. There are so many inserts available these days. You can plan hourly, daily, monthly and weekly. You can plan everything from meals to budgets to what you will declutter. I have several planners and notebooks set up at once, all for different purposes. Today I'm sharing a love themed one that I set up for use around Valentine's Day. I could decorate with this theme all year long. The So Punny collection was perfect for it. I love the combination of traditional love themed elements along with the cute little matched up characters. This set up is in my Pocket sized planner. Here's the inside pocket and cover of the first notebook.
I adore the LOVE die cut so I knew that I wanted to use that as a focal piece. You can never have too many heart stickers, so I added them too. The felt heart clip from my stash was a perfect match, so I added an epoxy heart from the collection to it and attached it to the pocket.

Next, I used my favorite plaid paper from the collection to cover my insert. I added some washi as a spine cover and put the cute little gnomes on the cover. I love them!

This first insert booklet is the one that I go to on a daily basis. I carry it around with me and jot my to do lists on it.  Each day gets it's own page. There were so many cute elements that I could use. I cut up the boxes from the small paper pad and adhered them to the page. They make the perfect 'box stickers.' The washi and stickers were also good additions. I used the cute typewriter Doodle Pop to make a clip and added the small heart clips as a decorative element, too. 

On this page, I decided to go a bit bigger in my decor.  I added the die cuts to Valentine's Day because that's such a special day. I love how it works there!

The next insert in my TN is one that I made myself. I decided I wanted to make a little insert to hold some special love themed quotes. I'm a huge quote fan and love jotting them down to remember. Here is a tutorial on how I made it. 

First, I cut the patterned paper and some plain white paper to 6.5 by 5.25" I used 5 pieces of paper since I don't need this insert to be very thick. I rounded all of the corners.

Next, I just ran the papers through my sewing machine. I'm not a seamstress, so I have no idea what size the needle is. It's just the regular one that has always been on my machine. I did a basic straight stitch. If you don't sew, you could use a stapler.

I added the strip of washi to serve as a spine and give it a decorative touch.

Next, I decorated it. That's always the fun part. I love the mini doilies!

I love the candy theme of the paper so decorated the first page accordingly.

I plan on adding just a bit of decoration to the rest of the pages since they will be holding the quotes and my little notes. The washi is a perfect touch along with small stickers. And of course more doilies!
The So Punny line was perfect for my little Valentine's/Love themed Traveler's Notebook. I can't wait to start using it. Thanks for stopping by today!
