'LOVING' Scrapbook Layout

Hey there lovelies! I'm back this week sharing a layout titled 'LOVING' featuring my lovely nephew from our most recent outing in NYC. This layout was inspired by the class I'm taking over at Studio Calico called 'Design School' and it's really been inspiring me to remember that scrapbooking isn't much different than graphic design. I've finally realized that it's totally awesome to approach my layouts how I would approach a task at work and this is helping me find new sources of inspiration and excitement to create. I'm finally feeling some mojo and have kicked the lull of inspiration to the curb – thanks Studio Calico! This layout is a simple take on scrapbooking using a full page image as the background and a boat load of sequins to create movement and interest throughout the page. Check out all the details below!

'Smile' Scrapbook Layout using ABM Messy Boxes

Hey guys! I'm back this week sharing a little layout I like to call 'Smile'. It's a really simple grid layout with a beautiful color palette using cards from various A Beautiful Mess Messy Boxes that I snagged recently during their big sale. I absolutely love their kits but I just can't think about another subscription month to month so instead, I snagged some of my favorites from their past kits during their big sale and I'm super pleased! I used different 3x3 cards surrounding a photo of my nephew that I trimmed down to fit the center 3" wide space. The title card I grabbed from their March kit with the word 'smile' on it and I finished it off with a wood veneer ampersand from Studio Calico.

Kellie Stamps July Release

Hi guys! Today I'm sharing a layout using the newest release from Kellie Stamps – a digital stamp set called 'Outdoorsy'! For this layout, I used a full background photo in black and white for the page To make it dynamic, I took the digital outdoor icon-like stamps from the kit and laid them on top of some watercolor strokes. For the title, I grabbed the sticker phrase 'wild & free' from Little Lamm & Co's 'Cheeky' kit and paired that with a label and date stamp in the bottom right corner. Check it out below!
