WCS | June cut-file, sketch and colors

The third Saturday of the month is Scrapbook. Saturday over at WCS. Each month we have a new cut-file, sketch and color palette as inspiration. This time I decided to work with all three of them and share 3 new layouts. 


The cut-file


As I don´t have a digital (or any really) cutting machine, I decided to hand cut the shape since it was an easy geometric one this time. I had the shapes form a grid on the edge of this wedding page. 


Here is a closer look and you can see that one of the triangles is glued down and the other one is raised with a glue dot. That is an easy way to add a bit of texture to a page. 



The sketch


I am plowing through the lovely wedding photos from my sisters wedding :)

I changed up the photo sizes from the sketch since I didn´t want to work with squares this time. Other than that it is pretty much sketch following. 


Working with sketch is more and more fun for me! 


The color palette



I love the palette this month! Just my colors! I cut patterned papers a diamond shape and added them to the top of the page both as an embellishment and a color pop. The yellow paper is used as the journaling block to tie it together. 


Again, I am really loving the warm colors on this layout, even though there is plenty of white space.

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 :)
