Studio Forty CT | Do you like coffee?

I like my coffee, I really do. So I take quite a few coffee photos and I like to add them to my scrapbooks. Today I´ll show you a very simple way that I used that circle stamp up in the photo above to make it work for my coffee shot. Let´s go!

When I was going through my supplies I saw that if I just covered up the heart portion of this stamp It could look like the rings that my cup makes when I spill my coffee. At first I thought I would use my trusted black ink, but I really wanted to make the rings look like coffee, so I got out a light brown ink pad and started working. 

I do like the result if I do say so myself! 

I have wated to use that wrapped banner stamp forever, but haven´t had the right idea until now. So I used it to hold that cute coffee stamp. Doesn´t it look festive?! I also thought about stamping that cute coffee cup, but ended up using the die cut from this pack instead.



So, do you like coffee?

Memory keeping | My hybrid process

For as long as I can remember I am have been a hybrid scrapbooker. What is hybrid you ask. Well, for me hybrid is a mix between digital scrapbooking and physical. I often use digital products in my memory keeping but I am not at all a digital scrapbooker.  I do however use digital tools a lot. I use Word for journaling and to print out cards for my Project Life spreads. Often I buy sets of digital elements and make my own cards using the elements. For this you could use Photoshop, but I don´t have that so I use the online tool Pic Monkey  for all my digital needs. I can change colors on digital stamps and add elements to cards for example and edit photos ofcourse. 
For my Project Life spreads that I make every week, I have bought and downloaded a few kits with about 35 cards in each set. I love to have them digitally because I can just print out as many as I´d like and I can also alter them a little if I´d like as I mentioned above. I know many people who also type their journaling on t…

Memory keeping | Hello spring!

Hi! I am still working in my travelers notebook albums when it comes to layouts this year. I still love the format!


Here is one of my recent pages. I had a lot of photos of little signs of spring so I wanted to use a few of them on a layout. 

For this I used smaller square photos and I wanted to make the right side with a flip open page. You can get a feel of what I mean from the photo above. I just used an extra paper and sized it to a liitle bit smaller than the page in my book, so I could easily open it up.

Here is a look at the layout when it is opened up. So, you can see that the three photos on the far right is actually on the extra flip page. I love how thick the paper feels and how simple this layout came out. 
So yeah, hello spring!

Project Life 2017 | Week 7-8

Happy Friday! I´m back today to show you my weeks 7 and 8 in my Project Life album for 2017.

Week 7: This was Valentine´s day week and I went with a pink and teal color scheme. When i think about it, I tend to use pink a lot these days. Not alot of words this week, I just let the photos tell the stories.

Week 8: This was my birthday week and what I am not showing here, are a few cards and drawings I got that I just punched holes in and added in between my pages. I like to add those in! I´ve seen quite a few PL `ers handwrite and then draw messy lines under it, so I tried it out.


Navy and pink are my soul colors at the moment!

Have a great weekend!

Memory keeping | BPC inspiration

I am a member and a teacher at Big picture Classes as you might know. I check out the new arrival classes every Monday and I always find some inspiration. Today I want to show you a layout that I made in my Travelers notebook album and how I used a tip from one of the classes!

The class that inspired me for this layout is called 
Simple Techniques for Scrapbooking in a Traveler's Notebookand it has a lot of great tips. One of them was to use your stamp to make a border on your layout. It is very easy and creates a cool effect. On this layout I used black ink (my go to) but perhaps I border in rainbow colors would be great! I´ll have to try that out next time. The hello stamp and also the larger alpha stamps are from Studio Forty.

Project Life 2017 | Weeks 5+6

Still plugging away on my weekly spreads. I love how it has become routine for me to sit down on Saturday/Sunday to print photos and make my spread. 
Week 5: I took Monday off work this week since I had picked up Stellan from the airport so late and I must say that it was the best decision I´ve made in a while! 

I am still working on my post about what products i am mainly using for my Project Life album this year, but you´ll see that I do use older products too.


Week 6: I remember this week as a slow, ordinary week, so I documented what we were watching and a few stories like Sunday mornings and my daughter and her brother. 


I used a smaller round photo in this spread. i think it is fun to do some of the see through stuff sometimes. I ended up using another photo on the next spread, but I could have used an embellishment also.

How are you doing with your Project Life?

Project Life 2017 | Products I am using this year

Pockets: If you have followed my Project Life story for the past 5 years you know that my style and size of pockets has changed over the years. For about a year and half now I use trading card pocket sheets. They have nine pockets slightly smaller than 3x4". Since most cards come in a 3x4" or 4x6" it does mean I do quite a lot of extra cutting, but I don´t mind that.

Weekly Cards: I am using the weekly cards from Nina. I also have used these other ones from her that i loved. They are digital downloads for a very good price!


Cards: Since I don´t subscribe to any kits at the moment I have bought a few digital kits that I am printing out. I have done that for years and since I have a good printer at home (Canon Pixma 4750) it works out good for me. One of the kits I have bought is the Project 52 Fresh Edition journaling cards from Becky Higgins. I have also bought a few kits from Paislee Press, like the High Five kit and from One little bird designs, like the
