Project Life 2014 | Week 30 Vacation week


Here is my week 30. This was the week we were on summer vacation by the sea. I started the spread with a map card I cut from an old atlas. I sewed the route we drove to get there.

I took a lot of photos during the week, but when I picked out the ones I wanted on the spread I tried to pick those that stood out to me in a way that they told a story about our stay.

I am doing a scrapbook layout with more of the stories later, so I didn´t add too many words here.


The second page has more of the same really. I made that second card with cardstock and my loved October Afternoon roll stamp to stamp "this is good stuff" over and over again for a filler. 

Those last 2 photos are from when we came home. Marta missed us and wouldn´t leave my side and finally we had tomatoes in the garden! 


I printed 4 photos on one card to add some more from when we were at a museum and just added a circle to hold a title.


My WCS friend Christine just released a free printable the days before we leaft and that sailboat was perfect for this spread!

Sometimes weeks like this stress me a little. I often have many photos and there are usually emotions that are hard to catch in a few words. When you travel you experience so much and I am afraid I can´t tell the whole stories to make that justice. So, I am super happy that I did this spread right away!

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 :)
