Memory keeping | Hot summer

Story: As you know I live in Sweden. Sweden is not the country you would normally think of when listing warm places to live. But the second half of this past summer was indeed hot! We had temps in the region of 30 degrees celcius for weeks. Weeks! We are not made for this, people! But nonetheless it was great to stock up on vitamin D. This layout is just about that; a hot summer.

Goods: I used exclusive Cocoa Daisy paper and my typewriter for this. And those cute wood veneer clouds ofcourse! The photo was taken during our summer holiday. I always sketch out where the photo will go before putting my paper in the typewriter, since I don´t want to add the photo before to get it bend. 

While we are talking about hot summers, here is another page on the topic!

Story: A few words about the hot weather and also about how it was so good to take a nightly swim while on vacation. Note: I almost never go in the water, but I just had to with the high temperatures!

Goods: I am not sure why, but I have made a few of these layouts where I just cut an A4 in half lengthwise. It is a different size for me, but I really like how the look. In my album I just pop them on the backside (or front) of an A4 layout in a page protector. 
I wanted to use circle cropped photos, so I made them circle using this technique in my iPhone. I then added the photo on white cardstock to make the border. The circle embellishments are from my stash and atleast one of them is from my friend Christine! I can´t believe that I used to cut embellishments like these out by hand now that I have invested in a 1" punch :)

Here´s to more hot summers!

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 :)
