Many of you may be wondering why I decided to go ahead and start an Etsy shop and really the answer is quite simple. I love travelers notebook inserts, I love creating in them and I love making them! I saw a need for something different and I wanted to make something that my scrapbooking and art journalers could use.
I have been creating travelers notebook inserts for a while now as it is truly something that I love to do and I now have a passion for finding the best paper I can at the best price that I can so that I can continue to provide the best travelers notebook inserts. I know that’s a lot of best’s but I truly do mean this as I am constantly researching and looking for quality affordable paper. All the inserts that I sell are made with paper that will not bleed through to the other side and can accept different mediums to varying degrees. .
The mixed media paper insert is made with Canson mixed media paper and can withstand quite a bit. I have put this insert to the test and so has Jenn Engle from Mixed Media Jenn. You can see her review video here and you can see one of my art journal process videos here.
The Tomoe River paper insert is made with Tomoe River paper which is simply amazing paper and super thin. The paper does not have any bleed through and can be used with mixed media products as well. I have some art journal process videos on my YouTube channel using the Tomoe River paper.
The watercolor insert is made with Canson watercolor paper and is bound with wax thread which is perfect for book binding. I use a saddle stitch to bind this insert because the paper is to thick for staples.
The black mixed media insert is made with black mixed media paper that is 104 pound paper and is amazing! This insert is also bound with waxed thread.
The vellum bristol paper insert is lovely because it has a bit of texture on it and does not have any bleed through. The paper is bright white and is a really nice cardstock.
The dot grid insert is 32lb pound paper and the grid is printed with a laster jet printer. This paper is so smooth and does not have have any bleed through. This insert was made because my scrapbookers requested a dot grid insert and I am so proud of this insert and the paper that has been used to create it.
Last but not least the plain white insert is made with 110lb bright white cardstock and is perfect for your scrapbooking needs. This insert is like having a mini scrapbook album!
I have a flip through of a completed art journal that I made using the mixed media insert and all I can is that I absolutely love the final insert.
There you have it my story of why I created an Etsy shop and what I plan on bringing to my scrapbookers and art journalers. If you have a particular type of insert that you would like to see in the shop please leave me a comment below and I will do my best to make it happen.
