creative outlet: idea notebook

Just something I made the other day, when I looked for a notebook to collect my ideas offline. I treasure the Moleskine notebooks. They are the best. But I didn’t like the color of the cover. So I went through my scrapbook papers and stumbled about these pretty ones, from the collection “Hello again” from Carta Bella. The paper is very thick and heavy and feels like watercolor paper. And that’s how the patterns look too, like painted with watercolors. This is definitely my favorite scrapbook collection, with this color combination and the lovely patterns.

    This is perfect. It has everything on the front of what you intend the use of notebook for. The paper line is gorgeous.

    yes, this was exactly my intention, Kellie 😉 was so happy, when I noticed the papers work together so perfectly.

    I always feel so guilty to cover my Moleskines up so I really like the way you blended the paper and the Moleskine together. And then that gorgeous embossed “Moleskine” shows. With my travel journals I cover them completely in a map but how I wish that I had done something like this.

    Also, this is just so lovely. Simple and pretty.

    Thank you, Caylee. 🙂 I always like to work with given patterns and texts like the Moleskine logo. I think it’s most of the time a good starting point for my own design. But I also cover them, if it doesn’t fit my idea. You can recognize Moleskine notebooks even without there logo. Like you’ve written before, it’s the feeling of the paper, that makes them one of a kind and recognizable.
