Project Life 2015 | Week 22-27

Hi there! I am back with a Project Life update post today. As I did last time, I will show you a few spreads at once.



Week 22: This was the last week in May. I have made an effort in documenting my daughters last weeks in 9th grade. In Sweden 9th grade is the last school year before the kids choose a high school of their choice. It´s a big step. So, here proom dress came and I took photos of her class sweatshirt. 


I also added a photo of me and my fiancé on International MS-day.


We celebrate Mother´s day on the last Sunday of May in Sweden and I got a wonderful cake and felt celebrated :)

Week 23: For some reason I hadn´t photographed thsi week´s spread. I´ll make sure to add it in later!


Week 24: This was the last week before summer vacation for me. My mom came to visit and we celebrated the graduation of my daughter. I added in a big journaling card by Big City Quiet to add stories from her last week at school. This is the blank card, there are several others with titles like currently, everyday life etc. Adding in 6x4" cards to journal on is my new favorite!


To the back of the journaling card insert, I added photos of her and her friends from that week.


I got a pretty rose from a few kids at work with a note, so I took a photo of it and added the note to the back of it. Washi tape on the top and it became a flip photo.


Week 25: First week of vacation! I added fun and happy stuff from the week.


To be able to add a few more photos I added that Currently card I got in a Studio Calico PL kit. You can see how I added a strip of washi tape to the edge of it to make it a flip card. I love how these types of addings bring so much dimension to a spread!


For the weekend, I opted to make 2 3x4" photo collages. Such a fun and easy way to add many photos. I added journaling to a tag I made to tuck behind the photo.


Week 26: For this week I worked with the moodboard from the Swedish PL blog I write for.


My daughter went to a One Direction concert and send several photos, and I made a 4x4" insert even before she came home :)



We went on a roadtrip to friends on Saturday and I added a fold out map of the city we visited.


And on the back of the map I just trimmed patterned paper and added to it.


A big photo hids journaling and many more photos of our first days.


Week 27: The first part of the week we were still on vacation and the photos are from there. I also added in a fun text message from my daughter to the back of...


...this photo. I cut a bigger photo in half, punched holes and added it right in there.


And on the back of the second part of the photo, I added the text about my daughter getting in to the high school of her choice!


And the second page of the spread holds photos that represent how fun it was to come home again! I printed an Ali E digital brush on plastic and added that in one of the pockets. I am going to keep that clear for next week´s spread also. Photo collages and a watercolor tag to hold the journaling.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my latest spreads!

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 :)
