Howdy friends! It's Layle back with you again this month sharing a springy set up in my Carpe Diem Traveler's Notebook with the Simple Stories Bunnies & Baskets Simple Set AND the April Free Printables!
When I first set up my TN for a new month, I always start with the pockets. It's so much fun to decorate them & make them look cute! I use this TN primarily for my loooong to do lists, so whenever I open it up it's because there's work to do :) If I have something pretty to look at when I open it up, it makes it a little easier to tackle my to do list!
I fussy cut the lamb, bunny & chick from the Bunnies & Baskets 3x4 Elements and then added some cotton to the lamb, isn't it cute?!
I used one of the 12x12 papers in the collection to make a decorative slip cover for my insert. I used another one of the 3x4 Elements and then added 3D rabbit ears with ribbon.
I adhered two of the dashboards together from the April Free Printables & then used washi to create a 'tip in' & used the April tab from the Tabs Sticker Tablet to separate the month in my insert. I can easily find exactly what month I'm working in this way in my TN.
I love to use the 'currently' dasbhoard from the free printables each month, it's a fun way to document things about me and to look back each month to see how things have changed.
I created a custom pocket folio to add to my TN as well this month, it;'s great for having stickers & other flat embellishments with me on the go. I filmed a quick YouTube video showing how to make the pocket folder, it’s super easy!

One of the biggest questions we receive about printables is how to print them & what type of paper to print them on. I filmed a YouTube video last month explaining my tips & tricks for printing printables; the first 8-ish minutes of the video talks through that specifically :)
