hello adventure pocket book

This little notebook was sent to me by one of my creative partners, Baum-Kuchen. It’s aptly named, Kangaroo Notebook, because all the pages are made up of pockets. Clever, right? Well the notebook is now available for pre-order (and these cute pockets for pre-order). They were so kind to send me the horizontal sample to play with in advance. I kept it simple and used new washi tapes from My Minds Eye and Freckled Fawn along with a hand-stitched title for the cover. I like to take washi tape along on my trips. Since it can get bulky (and I prefer to travel light), a solution that works best for me is to wrap a selection of favorites onto a shipping tag.

The tag fits perfectly into the pocket. You may have noticed that my schedule coming up is jammed with travels. Thanks go out to the blog reader who brought to my attention that I will be in 4 continents in the next 3 months. Whoa! My cousin Cindy also pointed out that I will only spend 6 days at home this month. Yikes.

No doubt this is the perfect little book to accompany me (and my spiral daybook) on all of the travels. I can collect goodies in the individual pockets for safe keeping before they make their way into mini books or onto scrapbook pages.

    Oh this is what I need, a book with pockets because I’m pretty good about just stuffing things in notebooks and not gluing them down. :)

    Thanks for the washi tip! Q for you – I saw a pad of paper in Michaels of your daydream line. No credit to you at all. Are you receiving royalities on this or should I just pass it by?

      Hi Ginny,
      Thanks for your note! Yes, it is properly licensed through American Crafts with Michaels/Recollections and I do still receive a royalty. Really appreciate your support!

    Washi tags seems bulky for me, what I did was wrapping the tapes on chopsticks, I can get 10 designs on a chopsticks, I’ll bring along 6 chopsticks that makes 60 designs. Not too bulky :)
