WCS | Rainy days

This is a post that was originally posted on the WCS blog

Ok, let me set the scene here...It is late-June in Sweden, we have had a few really nice warm days. Great, right? Yes...until you pull up your weather app and this is what you see...

Yep, rain, rain and oh yes there will be more rain :(
Well, I thought, why not think as an everyday life kinda scrapbooker and make a layout about the things we like to do on rainy days. Said and done! I got up the next day (to a flooded driveway!), ran some errands and then snapped a photo right outside my window. 


For a fun title, I decided to trace inside of an old sheet of chipboard alphas to get a template for the title. Then I poked holes and handstitched it. 


I took the stitchingwork with me to the couch and watched The Notebook. :) It didn't take all that long, but you can't just watch half of the movie now, can you?! 

I then designed my other elements around the stitched title. Here is the journaling:
Summer in Sweden will always have rainy days, so why not enjoy them. Rainy days are perfect for crafting, reading, TV watching, a few movies and a nap with one of the cats. See, rainy days can be all ok!

Do you experience rainy days where you live during summer? What do you like to do on those days? Have you scrapbooked about it? No? Well, do! 


  1. awww lovely page! inpiring. I really love your photos. I like to see what olhter people from outside usa do, cause we not always have that much craft suplly at hand, right?! :D

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 fianc√© 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 :)
