Product Review for Traveler's Notebooks (Fabric and Leather)

Hi there! Today, I am doing a product review* for a fabric and leather traveler's notebooks. 
Jennifer Phipps, one of my YouTube subscribers, owns an Etsy shop where she creates and sells these fabulous Traveler's Notebooks . She contacted me and asked if I would be interested in using and reviewing her wonderful creations. 
 I had never used one of these notebooks before, so I was very excited to receive these products!
Here is a picture of all of the goodies that she sent to me. 
Everything was wrapped up so pretty in Aqua tissue paper!

For my followers, if you are interested in trying one of these notebooks, use Coupon Code SHELLYBAILEY to receive 20% off of your order totaling $20 or more at Jennifer's Etsy Shop. This is valid through October 1st.  Have fun shopping!

I created a YouTube video showing you everything in detail that you can watch below. 
 Jennifer sent me a fabric traveler's notebook,  passport leather notebook, three inserts, and a bookmark. 



Here is the fabric traveler's notebook. These are also called Fabricdoris. I love this polka dot pattern. It is perfect for me!



 This is the leather passport size traveler's notebook. These are also called Fauxdoris. This size is perfect for my purse. Jennifer also included one insert for this size. She also stamped Dream Big on the front of the notebook. 




Jennifer sent me three inserts for the Fabric notebook. I received two blank inserts and one calendar insert.



Here is the laminated bookmark that can go into any of the inserts while in the notebook. 



If you have never used one of these before, you are probably wondering what to do with the inserts that fit into the traveler's notebook. 


You can use these notebooks and inserts for whatever you want it to be......scrapbook layouts, journal entries, art journal, projects, house inspiration, challenges, doodles, mini albums, movie and book reviews, ideas, lists, planner, favorite quotes, meal and grocery planning, etc....just have fun!


Here is what my fabric notebook looks like with all three inserts loaded into it. 

Lots of room to grow!




These notebooks can hold up to 6 inserts. 


Here is the top view. I have my bookmark and a couple of paperclips as bookmarks too. 



I had this cute charm in my stash, so I added it to the side of my notebook. 



Now I want to share with you how I decorated my inserts and what I will be documenting in each one as well. 

For this first insert, I just cut this die cut using my Silhouette cameo die cutting machine and added on a few stickers. 



The inside page is covered in washi tape. I water-colored the count the days die cut in black and then added some fun ephemera to the bottom right corner. 


I will be using this insert to document my food/exercise journey. 

I just created a couple of layouts documenting my new food tracker and exercise plan. 



I had fun using ink, stencils, paint, stamps, and scrapbook paper for these layouts. 



I cut this 3x4 card from the cameo and water-colored it and added pattern paper to the backside and plan on using it as a bookmark along with this Life paperclip. 


I placed the calendar insert in the middle of my notebook. I haven't used it yet, but I will. 



For my third insert, I decorated the cover with another water-colored die cut, paper, and ephemera. 


I am using this notebook for fun layouts that will included moodboards, color combo's, quotes, word art, printables, etc. 

I pin a lot of this kind of stuff on Pinterest and then never have fun using it in my creations. 

Now I have a dedicated insert to just play and have fun!

For this inside page, I just added some patterned paper, washi tape, and the wording was cut from my cameo. 


I created this fun fall moodboard as my inspiration for the month of September. 

Please feel free to Pin this and use it for some fall layout inspiration as well!



I created the moodboard in PicMonkey using images from Pinterest. 

I cut it at a 4x4 size to fit into my insert. 



I had fun creating my first layout spread with my moodboard. 


I used a script/woodgrain stamp from Unity Stamp Co. on the left hand side. I cut some leaves from the cameo using some older American Crafts fall paper. I also cut the Ali Edwards "hello fall" die cut from my cameo. 

For the right side of the layout, I added some patterned paper and then printed the quote from Pinterest and glued it down with another leaf in the bottom right corner. 



I plan on using the moodboard and happy paperclip as my bookmark in this notebook. 




  I had so much fun working in the inserts and then putting them all together in the fabric traveler's notebook. 

I can't wait to work with these inserts each week and see what I can create for fun!

If you think that you might like to try one of these notebooks and an insert, then please visit Jennifer's shop and use the coupon code above (good through Oct. 1, 2015) and have fun creating!

Hugs, Shelly
