WCS | September gallery

Happy September and happy month of Back to school! I love school and especially the first day when I always was so eager and organized ;) That didn´t always last the first term, but it did make me very happy! One of my favorite movie line is from You´ve got mail when Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan´s character) writes to her secret mail buddy: 

“Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.”

Ah, it makes me giddy!

The September gallery at WCS is Back to school themed! Yay! I shared two pages this month.



I love that we drove through the little town where my very first school is this summer. I haven´t been there for like 10 years! 

I remember just a few things about my first school. I remember it being large, but it really wasn´t. I remember my first classroom where 2 grades attended. I remember a boy liked me so much that the teacher just had to place us together, so that he´d concentrate. I remember repeating the same letter in different ways until we learned them. I remember how heavy the front door was. I remember the Christmas show we put on. 

I used Amy Tangerine´s stitch templates for this and it is so much fun! 


This layout is a timeline with a photo of my daughters first day of first grade and her first day of nineth grade. I just wanted to have the two photos on the same layout as a comparison, so I just added scraps of paper and labels between them. Sometimes it is fun to make a layout without writing an important story, but just to play with paper! And how fun is it to be able to use some great scraps from cute patterned paper when you play!

Now skip over to WCS and see more back to school pprojects in the new gallery!

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 :)
