Planning in a Traveler's Notebook: What is in my Fabric Dori.

Somehow, I can't keep up with blogging. That is why I am keeping it short and just directing you to my busy youtube-channel. I am trying to upload a video every Monday with planning content, here is my latest planning video.

Planning in a Traveler's Notebook: What is in my Midori.

I have posted a video on youtube where I briefly show you my planners and walk you through my Midori Traveler's Notebook. I mainly use it as a calendar on a daily basis. If you want to take a look, here it is:

Planning in a Traveler's Notebook: September flip and October setup

I have a new video up on my youtube channel where I show you what my September looked like. How successful I was in reaching my goals and what I liked and didn't like about the calendar pages I used. I will be changing up my weekly spreads in October because I want to find out what works best for me.

I am also trying out what kind of videos I like to make, what I am comfortable with and that is why I will only be sharing one Plan with me video in October - making these videos is very time consuming and doesn't leave much room for anything else. So before I am committing to a specific type of video on my channel I want to try them all. Please bear with me. I have started filming shares of my Project Life Album for 2016 and would like to make a series to catch up on my album. I am still stuck in May. I hope to start this Saturday, so stay tuned.

Mini-Album: Marilyn's Stories.

On Saturday I was able to spend all day working on this mini album. I love how it turned out. I even used ribbon which I rarely do as you might have noticed. But someone commented on one of my photos where I was wondering what to do with them, that there will come a time where I would have a use for them. And it has come! I am still surprised about that change!

When constructing the album I didn't follow any instructions, I just winged it. But I guess, next time I will first take a look at this amazing woman's blog where she shares so many ideas on how to make different kinds of mini albums. My album came out ok, but it could be better, if I had a little more background knowledge in bookbinding. But for a first, I am very satisfied with the outcome.

In my video, I talk a little more on why I made it, who it is for and how I went about constructing the album, so if you want to know even more, just go ahead and watch. I would love to hear your feedback! Thank you so much!

Cardmaking. 5 Cards. Edition 2.

When I stopped blogging in the end of March I didn't stop being creative. During springtime I made several sets of cards to give away as gifts. Often I would use leftovers from my scrapbooking kits and try to make a matching set of five cards. For this set, it just didn't work out the blue "hello there" card stands out no matter what. But I like it nontheless.

I usually take a leftover branding strip and wrap it around the cards, then seal it with this stamp that reads: "For you - handmade with love."

Scrapbooking Process Video #1: favorite stories

Yes, you read that correctly - after getting comfortable with filming, editing and voicing over videos, I branched out last week and filmed a scrapbooking process. It was a long wait over the weekend to finally finish it and upload it to youtube. But I am done and here is a link to the video.

Plan with me: Week 38

I'm just popping in to let you know that I have yet another "plan with me" video up on my youtube channel! I really like the way my Mondays start to take shape: the first thing I do after everybody left the house is setting up my filming station and then decorating and planning my week. Then I do the meal plan and shopping list and off I go to go grocery shopping. After I get back, I have lunch and in my lunch break I edit and upload the video to youtube. It's a tight schedule but it's something I enjoy doing.
