WCS | Scrapbook everyday life in December

Welcome to reality! I want to talk a little about recording life in December, but without it surrounding the Holidays. We all know that life happens very much in December like it does any other month of the year, but a lot of us memory keepers tend to capture the Holiday aspect of the month. Instead here are a few ways I have recorded our everyday life in December.



As our weather typically changes during December, I have done a few weather related layouts in the past. This one above is a new page I did for this post. The journaling talks about how beautiful the sunrise can be in the wintertime, when snow is on the ground and it gets really cold.

This is an older page from when we had the dogs too. I remember how much they loved to be outside in the snow! I am so happy I got this photo of the cats and Dixon watching the outside world, him longing to go out and the cats happy to be inside.

In Sweden the kids get grades at winter break and summer break. This is a page about my daughter´s first grades in Junior high. Even though the photos was taken infront of the tree, it is not Christmas related at all. If anything, the tree shows that it was a winter break grade not a summer one. 

So, am I right? Do we scrapbookers tend to focus more on Holiday related stuff in December?

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 :)
