Oldies but goldies: Challenged by Justem

My dear friend Emily Spahn challenged me (and others) to pick out 10 older layouts that we love. It was hard to pick just these because there are so many that I love, some for the story, for the photo or as a whole design. 

This is the story of my grandmother´s last few days on earth. I am forever grateful that I could be by her side and that I wrote this down.

I remember that I absolutely fell in love with that circle paper! I also LOVE that photo of my girl! 

This was one of the first layouts that were more whimsical for me. I have always been more of a linear type.

I love this page beacuse of both the photo and the paint splatter.

The story about me finally cross "walking on an all Ameracan street" of my bucketlist makes me happy still!

This is one of my favorite designs. I have made several others based on it. And that the story is about my late grandparents just makes it even better.

I love this page because that paper matched my daughters personality perfectly at the time. And the journaling in list format, yes.

The two coming layouts are not that old, but still on my love list. Because everyone who knows me, know that my garden and hearts of nature is what I dig!

This page is one I love because it holds a work related story. My job as a Kindergarden teacher can be challenging at times, but this moment was perfect.

You can see these and other layouts in my gallery!

Now I challenge you, pick 10 of your older layouts and share them again! 


  1. Ah!!! There are some beautiful ones here!!! Thanks so much for playing along! :) :)

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 :)
