Tools Today with Aly Dosdall featuring the WeR Stitch Happy!

Hello SCT friends! Aly Dosdall here, and I’m so glad to be back with you for another edition of Tools Today. I hope you’re enjoying your summer! One of my favorite things about the warmer weather is traveling, and today I’ve got an easy project to share with you that’s perfect for this time of year.

DIY Traveler's Notebook by Aly Dosdall 1

Check out the Hawaii themed DIY Traveler’s Notebook I made with my We R Memory Keepers Stitch Happy sewing machine! I used some of the thick Stitch Happy floss to sew the binding for my DIY notebook.

The cover of my notebook is patterned paper from the Crate Paper Oasis collection, and the inside pages are plain white copy/printer paper. I added some photos and memories of our trip to Hawaii on the inside pages.

The Oasis collection stickers, ephemera, and washi tape made the perfect embellishments to compliment my photos.

    I think this is exactly what I need! I love the idea of creating my own note books/ journals. I also would love to add more stitching to layouts and cards, as it adds so much to the finished product.
