Digi Scrapbooking | Feb 2015

Pink sky
We’ve had some beautiful sunsets this week, so glad to have captured a few of them with my phone. We are just home from celebrating a birthday in our family – so good to meet and talk with a part of my family that I haven’t seen for years!!

I wanted to share a couple of layouts with you this week, so here it goes. I made them both with the February files from thedailydigi.com.

A GOOD SATURDAY
a good saturday Credits: papers and elements from Birds of a feather by Forever Joy (part of the digi files from thedailydigi.com for February 2015). Fonts: Didot and EM Photogram.

My words:

After sleeping in a little (or a lot) I took MT and a friend of his skiing in the mountain in the early afternoon. It was incredible foggy and crowded. But the boys had fun and eventually I got a table to sit down by as I played the waiting game. Glad I brought both books and my Mac. Sadly the elevators stopped running at 4 pm, MT was a little bummed, he wanted to stay longer, but this made for a quiet evening at home with our iDevices and reading from Harry Potter #6 (me) and drawing a beautiful portrait (MT). A good Saturday.

AWESOME
seriously cool Credits: template from Snow in Love by Scrapstacks Southern Serenity; paper and elements from Little boy by Sugary Fancy (both part of the digi files from thedailydigi.com for February 2015). Font: EM photogram and Courier New.

The words were just snippets of a memory from 24. Feb 2006:

Ok, mama! I’m ready to go! Got my shades on. Looking cool!!
Great! Off we go, then, button up your jacket, you don’t want to be too cool…

As always: THANKS for stopping by!
Wish you a happy weekend and a happy Valentines day too!

Digital Scrapbook Product : Love

week4 | PL2015

I love scrapbooking. My goal is to get more done in 2015. Tell the stories. Have fun with colors and shapes. This week I’ve been working on my project life photos for January (hoping to send them of to be printed tonight!). During my search for overlays and templates for my photos I came across Paislee Press’s 2015 Calendar Title Cards (4×6) and I decided to use them as my weekly cards throughout the album. Above and below are my cards for January.

I love how they turned out. Looking forward to slip them into the pockets with my photos.
Happy weekend.

Scrapbooking | Jan 2015

As a member of the team at thedailydigi.com I get to scrap with the digi files early. This fall I’ve been so slow to scrap and have very few pages to show for myself, hoping this new year will be filled with stories scrapped and told. Below is what I made with the January files:

9 years ago credits: papers, elements and alpha from don’t blink by LJS Digital Designs, font: Andale Mono regular

My words was written in Norwegian, here is what they say:

It was with a lot of emotions we left your first homeland to fly to your new home. A few days earlier we had become a family of two. I was excited and happy (and a little bit scared as all mothers are). It’s hard to fathom that it’s now 9 years ago we sat on that plane together, but looking at the photos it’s easy to see. You have grown so much, we’ve moved from West Norway and now we live on our farm. We are a little family tightly bound. I’m so glad it was you that was to be my son. I’m proud to see what a great young man you are on the verge to become. I guess the next 9 years also will move fast, I’m curious to see what they will contain, but mostly I’m looking forward to follow along as you grow.

This too was written in Norwegian, I tend to do that when I want to express myself more freely, this is what it says, more or less:

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve dreamed of taking over the farm back home, dreamed about grain and vegetables, about fields and animals, about woods and houses, about what I most want to do: run an ecological farm taking care of both nature and people. Never did I think it should be so hard to find the right balance, not having enough strength to do as I wish, with so many tasks that just wait for me to start. I’m still dreaming about running the farm, getting both people and animal to thrive here, but it won’t happen over night. I’m practice being patient and brave, soon I’m the farmer, so then my dad finally can get some rest and enjoy his senior-farmer days.

As always: THANKS for stopping by!
