Larkindesign Creative Team | April Release + TN Spread

Welcome back and happy Friday crafty lovers! I am here to share the April Release at Larkindesign that went live on the 1st of this month. I will be sharing with you today a fun and bright Traveler’s Notebook spread inside of my personal TN, and later this month, I will be on the Larkindesign Blog sharing a beautiful 8 1/2 by 11 layout showcasing the beautiful patterned papers.

This month’s collection is called “Sweet Chicks” and it is a bright collection full of bold orange’s, yellow’s, and the softest mint’s ever! Here is a quick look at the collection itself:



If you are loving this collection, you can find a fabulous freebie of a couple of patterned papers  and the full collection for purchase here.

Now, I want to get to the nitty-gritty and share with you one of the cutest spreads I’ve ever made inside of my personal Traveler’s Notebook.

(By personal I mean that I have a couple different books where each one is designated to different subjects. For example: my son, my selfies, photos of me and my husband, and my personal one which includes random things and photos that I like!)

So here is the spread I made using a mix of the 4×5 cards and cut-apart die cut shapes:


This has to be one of the most fun and unique ways I have ever used orange! It’s got such a fun pop with the black and white 4×6 card that I used to back my photo.

This time around I decided to make things a little interesting by backing the left side of my spread with plain white cardstock and adding some really fun dimension using modeling paste and a stencil with those trendy plus signs.


It made the plain white background pop with the white-on-white! I also used the cute floral die cuts, cause I can’t ever not use flowers in my layouts! This collection had a fun mix or orange and super soft pink flowers.

I balanced out the area around my photo by adding floral clusters on the left-bottom side of the spread and a matching orange label to which I added a small stamped quote.


I finished off the balancing by then creating a second cluster on the top right-hand side of the spread.


This one included one of the fussy cut tags from the collection, to which I added some cute black and white twine. And, of course, some more layered florals!

Then I made this whole spread pop with the brightest title ever!


These orange alpha’s were from the last kit I ever received from Gossamer Blue last year. It felt to great to bring them out of hibernation to use it with Theresa’s gorgeous collection!!

I spelled out the word #PLANNERNERD because I was recording a photo I took of my set-up while playing inside of my Heidi Swapp Memory Planner. Perfect!


This collection is pretty much the perfect color combo! I just love playing with Theresa’s beautiful designs and color combinations every single month, but this month was a sweet treat!

I also hope you guys have liked this Traveler’s Notebook share. Getting crafty in my TN this month has totally brought back my mojo to keep playing inside these fun little books!

I hope you have enjoyed this project share for the Larkindesign Creative team. I will be back soon, as always, with much more crafty inspiration! Until next time, stay crafty.
