Hello Stamp & Scrapbook Expo friends and fans, Becki here, to share some tips for sewing in a traveler’s notebook. Yes, I said sewing in a traveler’s notebook! I LOVE adding stitching to my scrapbook pages for a few reasons. One, I love the texture and detail that stitching adds to a page, and two, sewing is an inexpensive and permanent adhesive. I thought that stitching with my sewing machine would be a fun addition to my traveler’s notebook.
Today, I’m showing you samples from my Texas traveler’s notebook. I’ve used the Simple Stories, “I am” collection and Texas stamp sets from The Wandering Planners to create this notebook.
Before I do any stitching, I create the two-page spread using patterned paper. I cut an 8×8 square to cover an entire two-page spread. Make sure to measure your traveler’s notebook to make sure the page you’re creating will fit. After I create the two-page spread, then it’s time for sewing!
Then I take the patterned paper two-page spread to my sewing machine and do some sewing. On this page, I added a simple zig-zag stitch to both sides of the photo with pink thread.
After the stitching is done, I carefully cut the two pages apart and adhere them to the pages inside my traveler’s notebook.
See, sewing in a traveler’s notebook is much easier than you think!
Each page in this traveler’s notebook has a little bit of sewing as well as some stamped elements using The Wandering Planner stamps. Both of these stamp sets are for sale in the Wandering Planner shop. I used the Texas destination stamp set as well as the Austin destination stamp set in this notebook. Both of these stamp sets are adorable!
Next time you’re working in your traveler’s notebook, I hope you’ll give sewing a try. Thank you for stopping by for sewing in a traveler’s notebook. Have a great day!
