WCS | Challenge: sketches 1/3

It´s my turn to host the weekly challenge at Write Click Scrapbook! 
I love sketches. That´s a fact. I try to use the sketches that are shared here on the blog as often as I can. I rarely end up with a page or project that is exactly like the sketch and that is partly why I like to use them. They are great starting points if you can use a little nudge to get creative. But you can interpret it just as you like. 
For me a good sketch is one that is easy to turn around and use on many different pages. I´ve made three sketches for this week.

Here is the first sketch. I find that I am using smaller photos on my layouts these days, which is great for several reason; I can stretch both my printer ink and photo papers and it´s also easier to fit more photos on one layout if they are not full sized 4x6. And I do love me a good grid ;)

Here is sketch #2. I realize these two are similar in design, but the way you can use the photo placements are endless; 4 photos, or two a little larger, one large square or many more in a collage.

Sketch #3. This is a mix up of the two above really. It´s still linear with a bit of a grid design, but also fun and easy to customize. You change up the proportions and use a 3x4 journaling card paired with a 3x4 photo. You can also play with more layers and skip the linear and simple design. 

I hope that these sketches can spark some creativity in you! 
Please use the hashtag #wcsmaychallenge if you share one social media, I would love to see your takes!

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 :)
