my b6 slim traveler’s notebook setup
I’m really excited to share with you all my new B6 Slim traveler’s notebook! This notebook is super special to me because I handmade it myself. It took me about five days to make. I hand-stitched the entire thing, which is why it took me so long to complete. But I rather like the way it came out. It does have a few imperfections, but those little imperfections is what gives the notebook character.
So I’ve set this B6 Slim traveler’s notebook up with the intention of using it as my main “everyday carry” for next year. If you recall, I’ve been using a personal Filofax Domino Soft planner for the entire year for my planning. Even though I absolutely love this system, I wanted to try out using a traveler’s notebook system instead. I love the size of my personal Filofax, but the size of the inserts could be a bit wider. I figured since a B6 Slim traveler’s notebook is roughly the same size as this Filofax, but the inserts are wider (since there’s no rings), it was be the perfect substitution. Also, I’ve enjoyed setting up my months in my B6 Stalogy bullet journal that I figured if I combined the two in my B6 Slim traveler’s notebook it would be the perfect system.
I’m really hoping this system works for me. I’ve even included my fabric junk journal that I recently made. For next year, I’m hoping to have one notebook for both my journaling and planning needs. I’m honestly the type of person who prefers having one book for everything. While my bullet journal is fun, I’ve been feeling like every page in it has to be perfect. And well, my planning isn’t perfect! So having individual inserts for both journaling and planning, but housed in one TN cover will hopefully amend that issue.
Definitely check out the setup video below to get a more in-depth look at how I’ve setup my B6 Slim traveler’s notebook!
I love that you made your travelers notebook by hand. Clearly imperfect, and that’s what makes it so personal and beautiful. Reminds me of a Buteo Bunker.

Thank you! It’s also a totally different feel when you make it yourself, which makes it even more personal.
