Felicity Jane Haul + TN Spreads


I recently purchased a few goodies from Felicity Jane on during their birthday sale. I was in need of some new traveler’s notebooks for my scrapbooking, so I picked a few up. I also picked up a few embellishments, because, why not? 😅

I have already dug into one of my new tn’s and made a few spreads. I have loved picking out quotes and pairing them with a photo lately. A fun, simple way to document these days.

’21 Summer TN Spreads


Just stopping by today to share a few new tn spreads I’ve made this summer. It’s a very simple way of documenting for me, but printing these photos out and putting them all together in a book feels complete to me. And this is the entire point of scrapbooking/memory keeping/documenting to me. 😊

Enjoy this little flip.

Scrapbooking in a TN | Part 1


I had a post a couple years back about scrapbooking in a traveler’s notebook. While I still love scrapping in a 12×12 or 8×8 format, I have been getting back into the tn world. I use a standard size tn for my memory keeping. I love these from Felicity Jane.

The thing I currently love most about scrapping in this format is the size. I love printing out 4×8 photos (or even an 8×8 photo). 🥰 It makes a statement and also takes up a lot of real estate on the pages. It makes decorating the spread easier, and a little simpler too.

The notebook I’m sharing below is from my personal journal. I love printing out fun, random photos of my life and adding some words, quotes, or journaling to the spread.

I will share some more spreads coming soon! ☺️

Planning without Plans

Stay home and craft. I’ve been (loosely) trying to do that since we got our stay at home order last month. What happens when you love to plan ahead and decorate your planner accordingly? Well, I’m still enjoying decorating my planners with #allthestickers, but I’m using my planners a bit differently these days.Planning without Plans | Created by Jen BlogPlanning without Plans | Created by Jen BlogInstead of writing in plans, because well, there aren’t many for me, I’ve been making checklists daily. This seems to help me stay on track in terms of accomplishing at least a few things each day. It also helps to separate the days, because they are running into each other!Planning without Plans | Created by Jen BlogI’m still using my big Recollections planner (yay!), but that doesn’t mean that I’m not playing with other formats, like traveler’s notebooks, etc. At the end of each day, I’m still coming back to my main planner I decided on for 2020. In a way, it makes everything feel a little normal and familiar. Before too long my planner will be filled with work schedules and appointments again, but for now I’m making my planner work for me!Planning without Plans | Created by Jen Blogheart_jen

Planner Haul!

Hello!! I’ve got a fun post for you today! Here’s my new planner accessory haul.  🙂

I really don’t shop like I did a few years ago, because, well, I have a lot of stuff already. But once in a while, it’s a fun treat.

First up is my May Planner Society kit. It’s my one year anniversary this month of receiving these kits! I simply love them. I consider canceling every month, but my mom always convinces me to stick with it.  🙂

I love this month’s theme and color scheme. Pretty pinks and greens. So summery.May Planner Society Kit | JM Creates BlogIMG_4861I love all the floral details. And those cacti tracker stamps- love!!May Planner Society Kit | JM Creates BlogMore doilies this month.

I totally caved when I saw the TN’s were on sale (in the slightly imperfect section– although mine looked totally perfect). I also picked up 4 TN inserts and some washi.Planner Haul! | JM Creates BlogFelicity Jane Haul | JM Creates BlogFelicity Jane Haul | JM Creates BlogI decided to go with a black & white theme with this notebook. I think I’m going to love it!IMG_4887Felicity Jane Haul | JM Creates BlogMy final purchase this week was from The Aloha Nurse on Etsy. The more I see Simply Gilded’s washi, the more I want some! I really, really love the look of her subscription boxes, but as they sell out quickly and do not quite fit into my budget at the moment, I did the next best thing: I bought some samples on Etsy.

I thought The Aloha Nurse’s prices were fair and the selection was great. I got some of the carousel washi, the hummingbird, the butterflies, and the bow washi tape. It’s all soo cute. It was packaged really cute too. I can’t wait to use them on my weekly spreads soon.Planner Haul! | JM Creates BlogThat’s it for now. Have you had your own haul lately?heart_jen
