My Spiritual Disciplines Notebook FAQ’s

on February 1, 2018 by Jami Balmet 1 comment

On Monday, I released one of my favorite things of ALL TIME! I got the idea about two years ago to create a Spiritual Disciplines Notebook and it finally all came together in the last few months. 

You can read all about the notebooks here, what they contain, and why they are so AWESOME! 😍

I am frankly overwhelmed by the response. You guys have been loving the notebooks so far and I am over the moon excited to watch as you develop your own notebooks (please come tag me on Instagram as you get yours set up). 

But throughout this week I also got a few questions that I wanted to address. Please feel free to comment or email me if you have any other questions that I don’t address here. 

The Spiritual Disciplines Notebook 

You can read all the additional Q&A’s below but I wanted to do a quick overview first because the notebooks are on super sale for just a few more days! 

The individual notebooks are normally $7.99 a piece (and yes, you get access to the digital file to download again and again. So you will have the ability to make your Spiritual Disciplines Notebooks for LIFE with this one purchase)! But you also have the option of purchasing all five together and getting them for just $24.99 (just $4.99 a piece)!!

What is a Traveler’s Notebook? 

I had never even heard this term until about 2 years ago. A traveler’s notebook (or a TN for short) is basically a leather or fabric cover that has bands inside. You then slip little notebooks into those bands and you can hold 4-8 notebooks inside each cover. 

What this does is allows you to house a bunch of different notebooks all in one spot. It has given me the customization and the room to write in all my different subjects that I’ve been waiting for. I’ve tried a bunch of different systems and none of them have worked very well until I found this method. I’m hooked! 

Here’s a video of inside the notebook to give you an idea of what it looks like: 

How to Print and Assemble the Notebooks

I thought this step was a little tricky to figure out when I was first introduced to the idea of Traveler’s Notebooks. But once you do it once, it’s not that big of deal! 

When you purchase the SD notebooks, you get access to the full tutorial along with additional links. But I’ve had so many of you wanting to know beforehand what the process was like, that I went ahead and make this into a tutorial video for YouTube. So you can watch this below or you will get access to the individual video clips with your notebooks when you purchase so you don’t have to come back to this. 

What Size Traveler’s Notebooks?

This is the most common question I get. Why? Because there are about a million different sizes of traveler’s notebooks. It can be really confusing if you don’t know the correct size. 

The size of TN that these inserts fit is a standard size. That’s what its normally called. But you might find a different company that has different names for their sizes (think Starbucks calling their medium a “Grande”). So the approximate dimensions you are looking for are: 5.75″x8.75″ and the inserts themselves are approximately 4.25″x8.25″ depending on how you cut them. 

My TN only has 4 bands, how do you fit 5 notebooks? 

Most of the TN’s only come stock with 4 bands. You CAN buy additional elastic to thread through and make bands (there are a ton of YouTube videos out there to show you how to do it). But I always make do with 4 bands. 

All you have to do is “layer” one of your notebooks on top of another. So you are using one band for two notebooks. See my photos below for how to do it. 

You can see that the notebooks are double layered on top of each other using the same band!

Where do you get the TN’s from? 

I gave you a bunch of links to all my favorite places to buy TN’s that are the correct size for my inserts, but I realize that many of you may want to look into that beforehand. So here are all of my favorites:

Webster’s Pages 

I really like these ones for several reasons. 1) They tend to be very affordable. All of my Webster’s Pages ones I was able to find on sale for between $15-22. But even paying full price of $30 isn’t bad! 2) They contain 4 bands so you don’t have to buy extra. 3) They include a pen loop so you don’t have to pay extra. And 4) They are super durable and last forever! My favorite store to buy them from is Blitsy, if you watch, you can often find good deals (which is how I got mine for so low). 

You can also find them for various prices on Amazon! This is a good option if you are looking for a specific print that is out of stock on Blitsy. 

My Prima Planner

This is the other brand of TN’s that I own. I have the Jet Setter print and it’s beautiful! The “leather” on these is a little stiffer. Overall I like the feel of the Webster’s Pages a little better, but these ones are a great option. But be careful: Prima has TN’s of different sizes. So make sure to check that they are standard size. The ones below are all standard size.

Carpe Diem Planners

Another brand I have considered in the past are the Carpe Diem line (you can sometimes find these at Joanne’s stores). They are a little wider I believe than the standard size, but they should fit just fine.

  1. Hi Jamie! I ordered your spiritual planner on the sale you had and am super excited. I went through Etsy to get a travellers notebook. My question is: where did you get the really pretty charms you have hanging from your TN as well as your paperclips? They are all so beautiful and I think they really add to it!
