I can't believe November is already less than a week away! If you read my last two posts, you got a sneak peek at this month's theme...crochet, knit & yarn!
I made the cover page for November when I first got my Cricut machine and was excited to make whatever I could. So that page doesn't quite fit with the theme, but I still think it's beautiful!
For the cover page, I used the Cricut to cut the "November" and to draw the dates out on a piece of scrapbook paper. I used a solid piece of scrapbook paper behind for a drop shadow effect. I then used my Scotch Extra Strength Adhesive Roller to secure it into my journal.
I've talked about them before, but my favorite journaling markers are Zebra Mildliners, I use them throughout all of my spreads!!! I have all of the colors they currently offer in the double-sided broad/fine tip and if you haven't tried the Zebra Brush Mildliners, I highly recommend those as well! The Zebra Brush Mildliners offer a medium brush tip as well as a fine tip. From what I can find, Zebra considers both types of pens to include a "fine tip", but the fine tip on the Zebra Brush Mildliner actually seems to write smaller than the fine tip of the traditional Zebra Mildliners. This is great for my journaling because I essentially get four tip sizes in the same color!
At a Glance Calendar
This month, I chose to spread my calendar over two pages. I kept the design pretty simple and added some yarn ball doodles for theming. I used my new Tombow Mono Drawing Pens for all the inked details that I used fine liners.
I used my "go-to" budgeting spread for my November finances. I tend to stick with green regardless of my overall theme. It just seems to fit well for a spread all about money!
I really enjoyed the two-page layout for my daily pages in October so I kept that set up for November! I did rearrange my sections a little because I wanted to tie the lettering for the days of the week into the date. I wanted the dates to look like the icon used to indicate the weight of the yarn and have the day look like it is written in yarn trailing off from that skein.
So there you have it!
