Memory keeping | December mini 2016 - 1

Merry Christmas! I have been working in my December album all through the month just like the last 3 years. I started a new 6x8" album since the first one got full last year. I record all sorts of memories and traditions we make. This project is not at all daily, I don't need that pressure! 


Most of the things I include are things that I include every year. That's the best thing about traditions! But the wrapping paper change and people get older and it is so much fun to look back. 


I am using mostly pocket pages for this album and I like how it makes the album coheisive. 


But I have just a few layouts that I have added without a pocket like this one above. I wanted to include a few photos in a pocket for easy access.


I'll share the rest of my album later this month!

BPC | My very first own class

Picture 1 of Pocket Prompts | 22 at Big Picture Classes

I am so happy to announce that my very first own class at Big Picture Classes goes live this coming Monday! It is a topic very near to my heart; Pocket Prompts. It´s part of a series where every month a new scrapbooker shares 5 photo prompts and 5 journaling prompts for your pocket pages. I am also sharing a in depth view of my process putting together my weekly spreads.

I would be so very happy to see you in class! Check it out on Monday! And also, did you know that BPC has a 2 week free trial? Well, they do and there are so many great classes there. 

If you end up taking the class, please let me know :)

Crafts | Favorites from past Christmases

I really love to make gifts year round, but at Christmas especially. Before sharing what I´ve made this year I wanted to share two favorites from the past. 

I love to go thrifting for materials that are so easy to make-over. Like Christmas ornaments. I found some great vintage ones and also a few lovely one colored ones and simply put initials and a snowflake on them for a personalized gift made in minutes.

Baking is also fun! If you don´t have time or enjoy baking you can buy cookies and candy and wrap them in glass jars and just top it with some cute fabric. 

I´ll be back later this week with some handmade gifts and decorations I have made this year.

Kellie Stamps DT 2016 | All the layouts

In January 2016 I got the news that I would be on the creative team for Kellie Stamps. And I have loved every minute of it! I really enjoyed the creative challenge of making something every month just with the prompt of at stamp set. I was really just required to make 2 projects a month, but since I am such a fan, I always ended up with atleast 3 ;) In this post I wanted to feature all the traditional layouts I have made this year for Kellie stamps. 

Other than these layouts I have used her stamps, both digital and physical, in numerous Project Life spreads, cards and mini albums. They have always been right up my alley and I haven´t had any trouble coming up with ideas. 

I have made a few of my very favorite layouts using Kellie´s stamps and that makes me so very happy!

Thank you Kellie for having me on and for being ever so generous! I will be on the sideline cheering you on from now and my gosh you have selected an awesome 2017 team
