WCS | One, two, three, four or more photos

Amy Coose had a series on the Write Click Scrapbook blog last week showing simple examples of layouts with one, two, three and four photos. Since i make all kinds of layouts with different numbers of photos I had a few to contribute with. They are all ones i have shared here before, but I thought that repetition can be good :)


I most often use one photo on my pages. The size of the photo however can be different. I don´t shy away from using a smaller photo and fill out the page more with embellsihments. 


But ofcourse the usual size is either a square or 4x6"" photo. The larger the photo, the more focus it gets. If I would have a photo that I don´t have much of a story behind, but rather just want to save I will use a larger size.




Nowadays I often use photos straight from my Instagram. Then i often use 2, but size them down to about 10 cm. I also use my printers software to print either two 3x4" photos on the same 4x6" photocard or I´ll print 4 photos on one. 


To use three photos on one page doesn´t happen to often for me. But if the photos tell a story over time for example, it is good.  The rule of thirds is a "rule of thumb" or guideline which applies to the process of composing visual images such as designsfilmspaintings, and photographs and is something I like to use with either embellsihments and/or other elements on my pages.


I have found that if I am going to use 4 or more photos on a page I will mostly do two things:

- I collect my photos in a mosaic

- I use a repetiotion of the same photo for effect. 

If I use a mosaic, it is mostly on travel or event pages when I really want to record many photos without making either a minibook or multiple layouts. 

How about you? Do you have a standard or do you vary the number of photos on your pages?

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 :)
