December daily | past years and this year


I have done a few years of December daily which was started by Ali Edwards. The first years I did indeed do one entry for each day in December, but later I have done a few twists of my own. 


1. 2011 #2 here and the finished book here

In 2011 I did my whole minibook around lists from (then) Ella Publishing. Click the links above to read more about it, but it was basically I had one Holiday related list that I filled out every day. Lists are so much fun and easy to worked with.


2. 2012 post #1 How I made my book

In 2012, I didn´t finish my book, but had the intention to work from prompts. Which is basically the same as the lists thing really. 



And then last year I decided to start a new December minibook. It is a Sn@p binder in 6x8 size and I am recording different December memories in it. My plan is to record 3 years of Decembers in this binder. A few things will be the same; decorating the tree etc. but that is kind of the point as I want to record traditions from year to year. I am allowing myself to play with both product and techniques in this project, which also makes it different from year to year. I am super excited to start this years part! I have already printed pictures of a few decorations and the first gifts for this year. 

Thanks for stopping by!

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 fianc√© 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 :)
