Christmas Town Traveler's Notebook | with Anabelle

When my beautiful, red Daily Doodles Traveler's Notebook arrived, I was so excited. It's amazing. The color, the scallops on the cover, the pockets and the inserts are all top quality and gorgeous. I knew that I wanted to use it for my holiday planning. Christmas Town is the perfect collection for setting it up. I had so much fun putting it together and can't wait to start using it.

I decided to use the red, green and black buffalo checked inserts. The colors are perfect with this collection. I added some trim to the edges for some fun texture. I love how it gives my TN some awesome 'side game'. Then. I set up my pockets and dash. This is my favorite part of decorating!

I added several cute die cuts to the pockets and added the sprinkles to the pocket and as decorations. They look like little Christmas candies, don't they?

I decorated the cover of the black and white insert. I love the contrast with the bright colors of the kit. Using the sprinkles and some foam adhesive really gives this dashboard lots of texture and design interest. I love that little squirrel, too!
Since I love planner clips so much, I decided to create a little holder for them. I cut a  piece of paper to 3.75" by 12". I folded the top to create a flap to slide into the back pocket of the TN. Then, I just fan folded the paper and stitched the flaps into place.
Here are a couple of close ups from the side to show you how I did it.

Now I'm ready for the holidays. I can't wait to use my decorated Traveler's Notebook!
Thanks for stopping by!
