October Re-scrap | The finished pages

Welcome to my October Re-scrap post! Back in the beginning of the month I announced that my long time project was making a comeback. Today I am sharing the new 10 layouts I have made!


In this image above you can see the sketches of the 10 older pages that I choose for this project. Below you see the older page on the left and the new one on the right!


A few of these pages have become my favorites. This is one of them. I printed the words to the song Try by colbie caillat on cardstock and made sure to leave room for the photo. I then added washi tape as a photo mat before adhering the photo of my daughter. The photo has been edited to black and white, and I also added a digital overlay in the Rhonna Designs app. 


I have made several layouts in this size this year. It's half of a A4 (A5) so it would be almost a 8x6" page. I have them in my regular scrapbooking album with my other full size pages. I like the format!


This page is clearly a little bit different from the older layout and sketch. Instead of using patterned paper to mat everything, I first used a pen to draw a rectangle. Then added the punched circles. I wanted it to look like a rectangle even when I erased the pencil lines. 


This is also one of my favorite sketches! It can be used over and oversince it is so simple. I rarely use other colors than white for my background, but I like the green against the orange pumpkins.


Oh, crap I love all of these pages! Ha ha


Here is another new favorite. I used this page and the Re-Scrap project in a recent WCS post on recycling a good design. 


I wanted to use this vertical 4x6" photo for one of the pages. I chose this sketch since it is a vertical design. That joournaling card is actually the back of a postcard from Cocoa Daisy!


I loved being able to focus on the stories I wanted to get down while I worked on this project. I always have a running list of stories I like to scrapbook and it is always a great feeling to check one of those of the list! For most of these pages I have told the small stories. For example this one above is about how Stella (our kitten) loves to go grab a special hat she adopted as her own out of the closet. She is hilarious about it and struts down the hallway all proud of herself!


This is another good design for getting more photos on one layout!


Here is the last one, number 10! I chose to make it A5 also and I have a feeling this is going to be a go to size soon...

Wow, that was one image heavy post! I have loved this project and have decided to bring it back monthly next year and I am so excited!

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 :)
