2013 projects review

Every year at this time, I go into review mode. I look back at the year and reflect on what I want to go forward with in the new year.

For this year I really only had 3 year-long projects that I have blogged about; Project Life, Re-Scrap and From Pin to Reality. I have been thinking a lot about how I want to go forward with projects in the new year. I really want to continue doing things that makes me happy and that feel worthwhile. I know I want and need to craft and memory keep and ofourse I will do lots of that, but sometimes I get in a rut and need something that pushes me and inspires me to keep going. Projects seem to do the trick. So, here is what I got from this past years projects;

Project Life: I love doing this! It has become a weekly session on the weekends and I love that. I also love that we have another years worth of memories in our two PL albums. I do however need some kind of change after 2 years of doing the project the same way. I just don´t know what yet.

Re-Scrap: This is my second year doing this. I have loved it and it has really made me make atleast 3 new pages each month! I love taking inspiration from designs I have liked and used before. But I think I need a break and will perhaps take it up again in a year or two.

From Pin to Reality: I love Pinterest and the ideas I always find there. And this project have been fun as I could share with you too. I will certainly continue with this in the new year. New things I want to do is to improve my photos in the tutorials. It is always hard to take indoor photos during the dark winter months, but I look forward to playing and setting aside time for taking better photos.

So, this is my review of my projects this year. I will be back with a post with one or two new projects for the new year!

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.

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 :)
