Hello there, Karen for Crate Paper here today. Do you like to keep a journal? I do & so do my girls. I’ve instilled in my three girls to keep a diary or a journal at this young age because it will be a great keepsake & one day in years to come they will have something to look back on, read, & those special memories & times spent with loved ones will be treasured, remembered & shared.
Ruby will soon be eleven & off to a fabulous camp in 2017 over the winter season, so as a surprise I’ve purchased her a travellers notebook binder & insert to take with her. I’m hoping she will record her special time away from home with friends in her journal. To make it easier, I’ve already got it ready, well, it was easy because I had lots of fun creating it.
I choose an aqua colour travel binder as Ruby is a lover of anything blue – ish. I then added some cute products inside for her to use as she records, such as a pen, stickers, paper clips, notepaper & sticky notes.
I then added some small stickers from the Snow & Cocoa collection to the inside of the notebook insert so that she is ready to just write away.
The best thing about a notebook insert is that once it’s finished you can leave it in the binder & use another insert to record another milestone or memory. I thought a great idea would be that Ruby can now use this binder for all her camps right through school. Brilliant. I’m always looking for ways to get my girls to write, so this is perfect.
I hope I’ve inspired you today to get creative & record all your sweet memories.
