A new December minialbum

A week back I had a post up on WCS about my December minialbums past and present. Go read that and then come back as I wanted to talk a bit more about how I am doing it this year!

2013 is the second year I am doing most of my memorykeeping in Project Life form. In the past I have done a december daily type of minialbum during December. My very favorite is the one I did 2011 that has list prompts from the e-book List it! Christmas Edition from Ella Publishing.
This year however, I am starting a new annual minibook. Being in a new relationship that has already become a living-with-eachother thing creates a new situation. We all have a little different traditions that are sacred for us and I thought that starting a whole new book would be the right thing to do.

I am using a Sn@p minialbum from Simple Stories for this and I plan on adding in coming years too. The stories will probably be much like the ones I have documented before, with the difference of not having a new minibook to store each year. Depending on the bulkiness, I plan on having at least 3 years worth of Decembers in there.

I am using this mini to be a little more creative that in say my PL albums. I plan to play a bit with techniques I don´t normally do which is exciting!

I hope that i can capture our new and old traditions!

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 :)
