Love Where You Live | my home pages from the archives

I recently had a serenditity chance to take the latest class from the girls at Little Paper Projects  called Love where you live.  It´s only 2 lessons in and I am very excited to see how the class is going to inspire me to create pages about our home. I love the topic as a homebody that loves her home already! To start out I dug into my recent layouts to find the ones I have made about our new home. 

 Story: This page is about how great the move went with great help of wonderful family members. I still love the circles I cut out for the photos! 

Story: If you are a regular reader, you know that one of our most favorite features is the view over the lake. We are still mesmerized whenever we walk into the kitchen.

Story: Our second favorite feature is our back patio. Oh, it is heavenly! 

I wanted to end this post with a fun thing I have in the first Project Life album of the year. When we moved in I took photos of every room when it was empty. Then I made sure to take photos of the rooms all decorated. I have paired them on a spread in the album. I think it is so much fun to look back on!



  1. I love the side by side pictures!! I should have WAY more of these than I do. And that first page with the circles is so fun. What is the bird patterned paper?

    1. Thanks! I'll have to check about the paper, I think it's from a kit. Maybe Cocoa Daisy?

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 :)
