Memorykeeping | Nephew and neices

For my birthday a few weeks ago my mom, sister and her kids came to celebrate a whole weekend! We live about 2.5 hours away from eachother, so I don´t get to see them all that often. As I love taking pictures, I clearly snapped a few during the weekend :) Here are a few of them that have made their way into the scrapbook album. 


First, taking good photos of layouts with white backgrounds has been a challenge for me lately. Maybe I need to check my white balance setting on my camera...oh well.
The story behind this photo is that we were having dinner, the kids had their own table and I happened to just glance over and have my camera ready to snap this shot. It made my heart sing. It made me super happy that they love eachother so much and are so happy to see eachother and hang out together even though my daughter is so much older that the others. 
The story behind the process of the page: I made the whole page and suddenly it didn´t look right. I became so unsure of if the saying would be makes my heart sing or make my heart sing without anything infront of the make. A quick question on FB ;) told me that I had made a mistake and I didn´t have any room to add an s och the word make. That is why I added the mini alphas they :) 



On sunday before they had to sit in the car for hours, I took the kids sledding. We had so much fun! 

Maybe I shouldn´t zoom in so much when I take photos of pages with white backgrounds, because this one turned out better than the first one...or maybe it is just the fact that I should wait until I have natural light and not try to fake it with my lamp at night ;)

Memory keeping | Autumn TN 02

If you´d like to see my first few pages in my Autumn mini, just click here

I am still working away in my Autumn travelers notebook. I have enjoyed to add bits and pieces and stories about some of my favorite things about fall. I will go on in November and then start my annual Christmas mini at the start of December. 


Quotes are one of my favorite things to include in my memory keeping projects, so it is no suprise that I have quite a few in here. 



I will use most of the remaining pages for my 30 day gratitude project that I do every year with the grand finale of Thankgiving at the end of the month. 
I have a question, if you are one who makes traveler notebooks, how do you store them when they are done?


Memory keeping | December mini 2016 - 6 past favorites

Three years ago, when my fiancĂ© and me celebrated our first December together, I started a December minibook. It´s a 6x8 binder from Simple Stories with pocket pages. I decided that I´ll have three years worth of December memories in this mini. So this year marks the last one being documented in this book. I am not doing anything daily (as in the December Daily project that Ali Edwards do) and since I do Project Life every week this album is all about our December traditions and sometimes I do have double recordings, but for me it is all ok. What I have felt special about working in my December mini is that I go all in with glitter, cheesy wordings etc. It´s fun! I fitted 3 years of Decembers in one album and this year I am getting a new album, but will still do the same thing.

Today I thought I´d share a few favorite pages and elements from the past 3 years before I start the new album.


1. I really like that I have included the things I have been inspired by every year. I take a screen…

Kellie Stamps CT 2016 | November

I'm so happy about the re-release of two alpha sets this month from Kellie Stamps! Slim Jim is a set I use all the time for all kinds of projects. 

Here is a new page I did for the re-release.

I've been so inspired by fellow team member Diane and her awesome traveller notebooks lately. She often creates backgrounds using her alpha stamps, so I lifted her and made this background for my layout. I very rarely use any other color than black to stamp with, but after using this blue/teal Ink I may have to start. 

Since my love is worse in his MS his wheelchair is a must. We are that couple that hold hands a lot and that is something I miss. But when the road is a tiny bit downhill we totally hold & roll :)
