Studio Forty CT | Flower love


Hello! Here is a simple page I did in my TN I made a while ago for Studio Forty. I love to make patterns with stamps and this time I used the beautiful New beginning stamp set!



I usually stamp with my black ink for almost everything, but for this project I chose to use a light baby pink color. I thought that using a lighter color would work well for a softer pattern.


One of my favorite ways to use stamps is to repeat the same stamp over and over again, and that is exactly what I did here. When I stamp patterns I usually have a scrap paper under the paper where I am stamping so that I can stamp on the edges too. I really like it when not all the stamps are whole, but more offset.



I wanted this page to just be a simple one and I had no real story that I wanted to tell. Instead I looked for a quote about flowers that would go good with the rest of my page. Pinterest is my go to place for most inspiration and I had this one in my Words I love board. I wanted the stamped patterned paper to not be covered up too much, so I used a piece of vellum to type my quote on.



I love how soft this page came out! I think that if I had used a plain white paper for my text it would have made the whole page a bit more sharp.


Have a wonderful day!

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 :)
