WCS | Inspired by Pinterest

This post was originally written for the Write Click Scrapbook blog. 

Hi there! I am so happy to be back with the weeklong themes! Our team (Jennifer HBecca and me) is up first and we are doing all Pinterest inspired posts. This is how we did it: we all found one pin and are blogging about our own projects made with that pin as inspiration. Then as a little extra, we made something inspired by the other's pin also. I like to see how we all interpret different things from the same piece!
I, Lisa, am going first! Here is the pin that I picked.

It makes my heart go pitterpatter when I see the fun colors and the outlined ink. I knew that I wanted to use the letters as my inspiration and I made 2 layouts.
As you see I used the cut out letters and outline as my main inspiration. I don't have a die cutting machine, so I handcut the letters. I don't mind; I like it as therapy! I found some fun and colorful patterned papers to match my daughter's mood in these selfies. What is up with teens and selfies by the way?! Haha! Anyway she is a selfie queen! Rather than just using a collage of the four photos, I used my sewing machine to make a grid for the photos. 
As I had adhered the letters and used a fine pen to make the outlines. I don't mind the lines being uneven one bit, I like it!

Here is the second layout I made. I wanted to show you how fun the cut out letters can be with a more cohesive color palette. I jumped in my scraps basket looking for different yellow papers and spelled out the word sunflower in this quote I found. It worked perfectly with the new photos I took at the sunflower field a few weeks ago! 
Here is just a closer look.

Jennifer made this digital layout using my pin as inspiration. I love how she used those fun upper case letters! So colorful and fun.
Thank you for stopping by today!

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 :)
