Project Life 2014 | Week 28+29


I am eager to get caught up with sharing my finished spreads, so I´ll show two weeks worth today!


On this spread I used a few cards I have made myself using watercolors. I am not a painter at all, but everyone can paint lines on a piece of paper, right! So that is a great, simple way to incorporate a new trend. The watermelons and the card with the yellow triangle was not hard to make either :)
The ombre card on the left is actually a card I made on my iPhone with the Rhonne Design app (you can see more on that here). Obviously, I am talking about the base of that card. I printed it and then wrote on + embellished it during my PL craft session.


I have used a few close up photos in this spread and I want to do that to catch the feel of what life was like during this week.


Here is the last watercolor card I made for this spread. Again SUPER simple; paint a circle, fill it in, done! I attached a printed digital stamp from Ali Edwards ontop of the circle and called it done.



Week 29. The week before we went on a week long vacation. We were savoring being home, in the garden, by the lake, eating cool sallads on hot days.

For the spreads first page I used trusted techniques; short journaling, large photos, from where I stand kind of photos, journaling on labels and journaling directly on photos.


I love the "here I am" stamp from Cocoa Daisy! I feel that I am going to be able to used it on many projects.


This week we also enjoyed little brother snuggles, really good icecream, wedding photography and family time.

On the second page I used a lot of small labels on the photos for both journaling and embellishments.


The July Cocoa Daisy kit had Amy Tangerine´s sewing templates and I have used one of the words on the template for this photo of me reading in the backyard. This is such a fun way to add that little extra to a layout or a card in PL!

Ok, that´s two more weeks in the books!

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 :)
