Going digital - sort of...

Do you have been to trips or happenings from which you have tons and photos and have no idea where to start when it comes to scrapping? I do...

I have challenged myself to go digital, too, in 2017 and I'm going to use the Project Life App to start with.

Hands down, it was so easy to use, and this layout is the first I made, using free templates and collection packs:

One of those trips we have lots of photos from, is our hiking trip into the mountains this fall. I wanted to check out how a digital layout from our trip to the waterfall "Myfallet" could look like:

Worked as a charm!

Then I got really brave and scrapped a (silly) photo session of my cousin, his daughter and my husband:

So, do I have any plans for using the PL app? Oh, yes.
  • I plan on documenting snap shots from our daily life weekly,  two or three photos from each week, just to tell the stories I often forget are worth telling.
  • I will use the app on a long road trip later this year, making a layout every night using the best photos of the day - a kind of trip diary.
  • Any other occation when I feel I want to have lots of photos in my album.
I have figured out how I can print at home from the app - I will share with you in a later post, so stay tuned!

Happy new year - and CSI case file no 221

Happy New Year, people!

Are you as excited about the new year as I am? While 2014 and 2015 was really tough on my family, 2016 was peaceful and calm but with some perfect, small challenges to remind us that life isn't easy all the time. I cross my fingers 2017 will flow easily, too!

I'm starting the new year scrap wise by sending congratulations to CSI on their fifth year! I'm proud to have been invited to the party with a GDT spot!

Here is the first CSI Challenge in 2017:

And here is my take on it:

How I solved the case:
Colors & sketch
  • All five colors + sketchused
  • Tiny dots, grid
  • Banners
  • Enamel dots
  • Inspiration Words: delicious, sweet, life
    My journaling is about how sweet life can be; a weekend without the kids but With good friends and With lots of good Food and ine

Close up photos:

The materials is a true mix of manufactorers. No one mentioned = no one forgotten

Old overlays and brads from my stash

The overlay is pretty visible in this close up

Now, please head over to the CSI blog for a massive inspiration and to play along. Deadline: January 31th.
