Fauxdori notebook

Hello everyone! I have another fauxdori notbook to share today. Last week I made a fauxdori in passport size in a gorgeous ice-blue / grey-ish color and I had enough of this leather left to make another one out of it in the original midori size.


Below you can see how the Midori size and passport size compare to each other. I love how they look together as a cute little set!

Paper Issues - August Sketch

Hello everyone! It's time for the August sketch over at Paper Issues today. This month we have a sketch inspired by a layout from Nicole Samuels for American Crafts.


Honestly, this was a tough one for me. Like all sketches with circles are to me. I went through some collections I had laying around and as soon as I noticed the 2x2 square pieces of Simple Stories Summer Vibes, I knew I had to replace the circles with squares. I printed my pictures in 2.5x2.5 and there was the base of my layout.

Fauxdori notebook - passport size

Hello everyone! I have a new fauxdori to share with you today. This one is slighly different from the former ones I have made. This one is a bit smaller, in passport size and the purpose of this one is not a travelerjournal but a notebook. 

In my previous fauxdori post I told you about the local leather store I visited and the unique pieces of leather I got there. The piece of leather that I used for today's notebook is a good example of a one of a kind. It has a mark of numbers and letters on it and the color is ice-blue / grey-ish.


I used pink elastic band to bind it.


For the inserts I used a pink grid digital paper from SonyaDeHart Design.


Thank you for stopping and have a great day!

Clearwater Beach

Hello everyone! Today I have a layout to share that I've made with the gorgeous Simple Stories Summer Vibes collection. When I saw this Shine On paper that I used for the background, I knew I had to use it with one of my sunset pictures.

I have tons of sunset pictures, I just love to watch sunsets and how the sky changes every couple of minutes. Even when there are some clouds, the sunset and the sky can still be so pretty. Like in this picture, taken at Clearwater Beach, there were some clouds and the sky turned into some light pink-ish color. I took this picture from a rooftop bar, which also gives it a different view than when you take these pics at the beach.

Travel journal - leather fauxdori

Happy Sunday! I'm totally hooked right now to the fauxdori travel journals. Last week I showed you my first attempt with a felt cover and it went way easier than I expected. So it was time for a real leather one.

A few weeks ago I visited my local leather store and the place was awe-some!! Leather everywhere, in all possible colors. They usually sell leather for furnitures and other big projects, so they pointed me to a part of the store where they have leftovers I could choose from. I spent about two hours going through all the beautiful pieces. I love that every piece is unique and that will make each of my fauxdori's unique.

The one I've made this week is from a goreous piece of brown leather, which gives it some kind of vintage feel. I used black elastic band to bind it. The charm on the front is a vintage globe and the charm on the side is a coin to emphasize the vintage feel even more.

For this one I've designed the inserts myself again. I used a digital paper from Sonya DeHart Design that mimics old paper and the font is Traveling Typewriter. I really love how it all turned out!

I have bought more colors of leather, so more travel journals will show up here soon!

Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy your Sunday!
