Project Life 2014 | Week 7


Week 7 and I am officially caught up sharing my PL weeks!


This week I am participating in the February challenge at CiLi in  Papers Blog: Write or stamp ON your pictures. i do this on a regular basis, but decided to make a little more effort in recording how I thought about it this week. I decided to have mostly larger photos on my spread this week. This makes it a little bit easier to do either/or journaling and stamping right on your photos. 



I had this photo of me holding my coffee cup and knew that it was ideal to use either for the "white" space on the right or, as I ended up doing, in and around the cup. I think it makes a fun and different feel when you journal not in just straight lines. And to use a round circle stamp in the cup is just right. I also added a stamped banner from the February Studio AE set and some thin chipboard letters. I practically used my photo as a whole layout really and that is how I think about each pocket in my PL album. 


The other photo I stamped on this week is this one of my daughter´s and my feet while out walking. I knew that i wanted to stamp right there inbetween our feet and think it turned out great. I added the geotag wood veneer as we were out and about. 


This was the week of Valentine´s day and my sister sent me these adorable photos of her baby boy :) I knew that they had to go in the album! The upper part of what you see above is actually part of an insert. See more a bit lower in this post. 
We had breakfast out on Saturday at the Inn on the island which is a fantastic house! And the swedish skiing teams both won gold medals in the Olympic relay´s that weekend! 


Here you see that it is an extra insert.


This (above) is a look at how the back side looks. I made the decision to not have the insert all be about Valentine´s day. Rather the backside and the upper two pockets of the regular page (if I make any sense) for a more cohesieve look.


I have gone to using small tags and either handwriting or journaling on my typewriter. I like the look and it makes for an easy embellishment too!

Ah, yes now I am all caught up sharing my PL spreads with you! See you soon with week 8!

  1. Lovely pages, I love the little cross-stitch.

    Och guld igen - that looks so Scottish, I understood right away although of course I speak not a word of Swedish! My Grandmother could remember when the fishermen from Yorkshire, who were descended from the Vikings and spoke a strong dialect, could make themselves understood when talking to Scandinavian fishermen :-)

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 fiancé 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 :)
