The Nerd Nest | Daily challenge unit

As you might know I am a creative team member over at The Nerd Nest this year for the montly challenges. I have been very inspired by the themes so far! Megan, of The Nerd Nest, also teach a year long online class called Pocket Your Year which is a pocket scrapbooking class with monthly units/prompts. On August 15th she kicked of an entire month of daily challenges for the class and as CT members we could contribute to a challenge of two. I chose one that went live this past Monday which was about making a pocket spread about a hobby. 


As you also might know, I have perhaps too many hobbies ;) But I chose to make this spread about a fairly new one, knitting. I learned to knit just a year or so ago and it has been so much fun to try things out. I am far, very far, from a great knitter but I feel more confident now and know how to correct errors and to experiment a bit. And as I always have to have a project in my hands while TV watching at night, knitting has been a great company to my usual crochet. 
You can see that I used a blue tone to the spread and took that out of the photos my love snapped of me and my recent projects. I tried to balance the darker right side with a more white spaced left side in the spread.

Thanks for popping in!

  1. Super cute! My grandmother used to knit and I remember her trying to teach my stubborn little nine year old self. I miss her and I wish I had learned more when she was trying to teach me!

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 :)
