Studio Forty CT | My first post for Studio Forty

This year I am thinking about doing my scrapbooking layouts in a traveler's notebook. I am drawn to the smaller format. So today, for my very first post I´ll be sharing the first few pages in my TN. Most of this post and almost all the products are from Studio Forty that I am a creative team member at! 




This is the first page. I wanted to use the large "go outside" stamp from the Explore set and I had the perfect photo that I took in the forest right before Christmas for it. I like the look of two page layouts, so I used the second page as a title page with only the big stamp. Then on the left page I used a scrap piece of paper for my journaling. I typed it with my typewriter and added that cute tree stamp from the same stamp set as an icon. 



I was on a roll and made this double page right after the first one!




Here I have used the fun hexagon stamp in the Botanical set. I picked out a fun wintery patterned paper and just stamped several images with the stamp and then cut them out.



I used the hexagons to make a paper pieced patterned in two corners of the layout. I love how it turned out! For the journaling I again used my tyewriter and typed on one of the large tags and then added one of the round stickers from the Fall is here set that was in the perfect blue!

 The last thing I added was the "enjoy today" transperent sticker which made for a great title.


Here is the third spread I did for this post. My fiancé has such a big heart and our kittys love him!



I went through my patterned paper scraps to use as my background paper on the left side.
One thing I often do to add some more texture is to use my sissors to rough up the edges around the paper.
As for the last spread I used the right page for my journaling. Haha again I used a tag and my typewriter! I promise I will use other techniques on other pages!

That "love this" sentiment stamp was the perfect stamp for this layout!


Ps. I saw that there are some pretty new things in the shop ;)

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 :)
