Project Life 2017 | Week 1 and 2

Happy Monday! I´m here sharing the two first spreads of my 6th year of weekly Project Life. Wow! That is a lot of memories ;) 

I am still doing my weekly spreads using the baseball card pocket pages. I´ll have to look for another place to buy them because my usual place just raised the price quite alot! 
The first week of the new year was the first week that my fiancé was away in Tenerifé, Spain on a rehabilitation camp for his MS. He was away 4 weeks and it was such a tough time! But I knew that I wanted to include the photos that he took and send me over the course of the trip. So I printed a few in pocket size, but mostly I made collages of his photos. 


It was fun to compare my view in wintery Sweden to his tropical. And by fun I mean I was hugely jealous ;)


I often hear scrapbookers say that they don´t scrapbook about themselves and I can´t believe that. Even if you are not doing "All about me" pages, it is still your voice as a memory keeper that fills the albums, right? Being alone for a month challenged me to really include stuff I and only I did. Walks in the forest, the book I was reading, the TV-show I bingewatched etc. 


This week I made a simple accordian book to hold my fiancé´s photos. You can see more about that here.

That´s the beginning of my first album of the year. I am up to date and currently working on the spread for week 8!

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 :)
