My maiden name

So, if you follow me on Facebook, you might have noticed that I changed my name yesterday. I have taken on my maiden name again after 15 years. It felt like the right thing to do and my fiancé is thrilled about it. 

Those of you that are longtime folloers might remember that my family is part Hungarian and my mother is from what was the Hungarian part of former Yugoslavia. Growing up I was the one with the weird name and it felt really good when I changed it to a Swedish name when I got married. No more questions, errors in spelling and explaining to do. 

Over the years and especially the last few, I have grown to like my maiden name since it is so rare and special. And it feels both strange and totally normal now that I have changed it back. I am sure I will make some errors when I need to sign anything the coming weeks :)

I haven´t decided if I will change my blogadress and so on just yet. I wanted to share it here and on social media first, so you´d know what is going on. I have had people serach my name for scrapbooking stuff, so that might be a hassle now... We´ll see what i can do to make that easier!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Yours truely, Lisa Borbély ;)

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 :)
