The Pink Paislee design team are going to be showcasing the beautiful C’est La Vie Spiral Notebook on the blog over the coming days and I’m excited to be sharing with you my ideas today! The notebook has 5 divided sections and each section has a combination of lined and grid paper!
Before I jumped right in, I did a little bit of research (otherwise known as Pinterest surfing) on the sorts of things you can use a notebook for . . . I was looking for inspiration! Here are just some of my favorite ideas:
- Keeping track of food/exercise, budget or time
- Gratitude journal
- Book log
- Art journal
- Bucket list
- Writing exercises
- doodling/hand lettering practice
I started by dedicating one section to quotes that I collect either from social media or books I’ve read. It was so easy to add the acetate letters for a title for this section.
Now I need to warn you – I am absolutely NOT very good at hand lettering! But in the spirit of a fun, casual notebook – I gave it my best shot! I also added a typed quote and lots of fun bits and pieces to decorate my page!
The washi and the ephemera were perfect for adding some fun personality! And I wasn’t at all worried about any ink bleeding through to the next page – I intend to adhere two pages together to combat that!
And for something extra fun, I added a couple embellishments to the front. I simply tied them on with gold thread. For the cork heart, I neutralised the sticky back with some talcum powder and punched a hole through to tie!
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out the Pink Paislee blog each day for MORE notebook inspiration!
