My FIRST PL 12x12 spread made for Inzpira magazine

I have made a few 8x6 PL spread, but I have stayed away from 12x12 until now, the reason is that I haven't found a good way to take my style and move it into 12x12. I want all my work to have my signature and I haven't found that for PL yet...  So this tutorial..... Yes - I made my very first PL as a tutorial for Inzpira magazine... isn't really my style, but I hope to find it in a short while - because I am working on something PL for August, just wait and see.




It’s been 9 years since my wedding and I still have lots of photos lying around from that day, waiting to be dealt with. If you are in a Wedding Mood or like me, have gotten married years ago and want to do something about all your photos then Project Life or Pocket Scrapbooking, it’s something for you. There are a million of different kits out there you can buy, but what also can be fun is to mix those kits with all that stash that you have been hanging on to for years.


1) First you choose the kind of pockets you want, I have chosen two different ones from Becky Higgins.


2) To make your own transparent journaling cards, you need a corner punch, a transparent paper and a transparent sticker. Cut the plastic a little smaller than 3x4 inches, use the corner punch and stick the adhesive doily to the plastic.



3) You can also get printed transparent papers called overlays, so here you again cut it in a little smaller than 3x4 inches for them to fit in the pocket.



4) To make you own paper journaling cards you can use a 3x4 punch by W R Memory Keepers or a die in the same size and use a paper that have been lying around forever. The paper used here have been lying unused since 2009 (the same goes for the printed transparent paper)

5) Fill the pockets with photos, homemade cards, and journaling cards you have bought. If you have many photos in different tones of color – edit your photos In black and white or sepia. 
6) To photograph you pocket pages take out all the journaling cards and photos.

I am so happy that my kids get along pretty well, here they are in the little pool in the garden we have set up for the summer. Pretty cold, but they don't min.

Sommer - Citrus Twist Kits

Sharing my work with my first Citrus Twist Kits. I have used the Main kit - Are We There Yet? and some add-ons.

Here is my background before I covered it with paper. I have used some of the colors in the kit and tried to make the transition between the white cardstock and layers of papers as smooth as possible.

Citrus Twist Kits July Sneak

Last weekend I got the inspiration to work on my first Citrus Twist Kits July kit.  I made 5 layouts and I worked on all five at the same time. First I prepped all of them and some more with clear gesso, then I made all the backgrounds. Then I cut the papers on all projects and layered them one by one. THEN I started to assemble them and stapling/taping them to the cardstock.. I wanted to make sure that I had enough embellishments and papers for all of them. The layouts will be in the blog after the reveal on the 5th.

Here are some sneaks from before I stapled my layouts.

No inspiration...

I am having another one of those - where is my inspiration - kind of weeks.  I have been sitting at my scrap table several times this week and nothing seems to happen. Today I even cleaned my scrap area and prepped a few white cardstock with clear gesso. I even have a lovely Citrus Twist Kit waiting for me... I even got new Ecolines this week....

This is my desk right now wanting to be filled with paper.

Two peas closing

Sharing my FB post..

Inspired by others to make a screen shot of my Twopeas account while it's still there. I can't say that I was very active in the forum, it says 16 posts and almost 200 public projects, but the gallery was a great inspiration for me - especially the first years as a scrapper before I dared to go to crops and join forums and step out of anonymity. Pre-Pinterest i downloaded hundreds of layouts to my computer hoping I some day would be able to make anything as good.
I was also lucky enough to have a few projects picked out as a featured project -last one was just 1 month ago...
