Happy March, friends!  Does it feel like spring yet where you are?  Not here in Utah, we still have TONS of snow! I'm back again this month to share my Traveler's Notebook set up for March using the Happy Easter Simple Set and the March Free Printables :)

 

I covered the Inserts with Happy Easter papers so everything would coordinate with the springy Easter theme.

 

I printed out the dated March calendar from the Free Printables and adhered directly to the pages in my insert, then decorated with washi and stickers from the Seasons Sticker Tablet.  Incidentally, the free printables each month are designed to coordinate with the Seasons Sticker Tablet - a match made in heaven!  

I used one of the dashboards as a 'tip in' & adhered with washi.  This is my first time using the 'currently' insert; you'll find it each month in the free printables.  I think I'll start using it every month going forward, it's a great way to keep track of what's going on in my world :)

 

 

If you haven't grabbed the free printables yet, what are you waiting for?!  Designed for use in your Carpe Diem A5 planner, personal planner, Traveler's Notebook, on your scrapbook pages, in your SN@P! albums & more - simply download, print, and trim.

Happy New Year!  Layle Koncar, marketing director here with you today to share how I'm getting organized in the new year with another project that's not only fun & creative, but USEFUL, too!   I've made myself a winter themed Traveler's Notebook (also known as a TN) to help myself stay organized this month.  I'm using the Aztec Traveler's Notebook and the Sub Zero collection - a frosty fun combination!

A few homemade clips paired with a Carpe Diem aztec pattern to match the cover adds a nice extra decorative touch that makes me happy!

I added tabs to each of my inserts so I can easily find what I'm looking for.

Did you happen to see the January Free Printables we shared last week with designs from the Carpe Diem Seasons Sticker Tablet?  If not, you can snag those & download for free here.  Trust me when I say you want to do that.  Go ahead, I'll wait...  ;)

Welcome back!  Did ya get em?  I sure hope so, because I've used a number of the free printables designed for Traveler's Notebooks in my TN.  And when you see how useful & fun they are, you're going to want to use them too!

I created a 'tip in' with this insert by simply adding a strip of washi to the front & back side of the insert, that way it's temporarily created a new 'page' in my TN.

The giant snowman & plaid background are part of the free inserts as well :)  I made use of the 'month in review' insert to keep track of important information for the month, all in one place so I have it when needed.  These two pieces I adhered directly to the pages of the insert. 

A dated calendar - YES!!  Another one of the free printables in the set :)  I also adhered these two directly to the pages in my insert.  I finished off the calendar by adding coordinating stickers from the Seasons Sticker Tablet.

I filmed a Facebook Live video here on our Facebook page, walking through the free printables & how I used them in my TN this month, take a peek!

So there you have it - a custom winter themed TN for January.  I'm sharing LOTS of planner and TN goodness on my Instagram account here at https://www.instagram.com/laylekoncar/ - drop by & say hi!

Thanks & stay warm!

Howdy everyone!  Layle Koncar, marketing director here with you today to share a fun holiday project that's not only fun & creative, but USEFUL, too!   I've made myself a holiday themed Traveler's Notebook (also known as a TN) to help myself stay organized this season.

I'm using the Cream Blossom Traveler's Notebook and the Oh What Fun Simple Set - oh what a pair!  It's a match made in heaven!

Did you happen to see the Free Printables we shared last week with designs from Oh What Fun?  If not, you can snag those & download for free here.  Trust me when I say you want to do that.  Go ahead, I'll wait...  ;)

Welcome back!  Did ya get em?  I sure hope so, because I've used a number of the free printables in my TN.  And when you see how useful & fun they are, you're going to want to use them too!

I created a festive insert for different holiday lists.  The cover was easy - I simply wrapped a piece of patterend paper around one of our inserts & trimmed.  The 'very merry' piece is one of the downloads that I printed & trimmed, then I embellished with Oh What Fun stickers.

The free download includes 5 different lists - Gift List, Wish List, Shopping List, Christmas Cards List and 'Things to Do' List.  The lists are designed to fit in an A5 planner; no problem!  I just resized from 8.5x11 to 7x9 and when printed they were the right width for our WIDE inserts, which are 5x8.25.  If you want to use for a standar TN insert, you'll want to size accordingly.

I simply adhered each list to a page in the insert and then added a strip of washi to fill the white space.

So there you have it - a custom holiday themed TN for my lists this month.  I'm sharing LOTS of holiday goodness this month on my Instagram account here at https://www.instagram.com/laylekoncar/ - drop by & say hi!

Have a safe & joyous holiday season!
