Hi, Everyone!  This is Patricia back to share how I used the same Funky Mandala that I used in my bullet journal for the new year, but in my Traveler's Notebook!  You can see the bullet journal post here.

You can see the ink from how I used the cut file as a stencil on my bullet journal, but I like the added color to it so trimmed it and used it over more pattern paper to do a tone-on-tone effect.  I added the machine stitching to it first.  I happened to have the inside part folded where you can see the other side of the pattern paper and loved it.  I then folded them all in adhering them in place with foam adhesive and adding a puffy sticker.  Got a totally different look to this cut file!

For my title, I used the But First Coffee cut file.

I cut the first part of the title out on plain cardstock trimmed to fit inside my traveler's notebook, then backed it with pattern paper to complement my right side, but also adding a contrasting color.  For the 'coffee' part, I used a woodgrain pattern paper.

Before adhering anything in place or to my album, I sent the entire piece through my typewriter to add journaling.

Next, I adhered the page inside my notebook and finished this with stamping and embellishments.  Thank you so much for stopping by!!
