Hi guys! I'm back today sharing a short peek at a typographic layout I created using the Odyssey Digital Alpha stamp set from Studio Calico. I found this quote by Langston Hughes recently and I just knew I wanted to incorporate a type heavy layout. I love the roundness and skinny lines of this alpha stamp and so I played around with it for this layout titled 'Go'. Check it out, and some details below!
Hi guys! I'm back today sharing a graphic scrapbook layout titled 'That Was Fun'. It incorporates a more graphic spin with minimal embellishments, a simple color story and acrylic paint details. Keep reading to see details about how I laid this page out and what products I used!
Hi guys! I'm back today sharing a Project Life process video with you. This is Week 1 for my 2017 Project Life album and it feels really good to get going on this album. I'll still be picking away at the remnants of my 2016 album because I am very behind on that but I wanted to keep moving forward as well so that I'm not behind on two years! I'm excited to try and produce weekly videos for you guys because it's a great and interactive way for me to give more insight into my process and my thoughts while creating. I'll share some details of the spread at the end of the video and I'm sharing more details below along with links to as many products that I used and could find for you guys! Check it all out!
Hello again, lovely readers! I'm very excited to share this layout because it's been in the works for a while, and it's finally finished! Because I started the digital portion a while ago and never got a vision for how I wanted to finish it, I just allowed it to percolate until an idea came to me. I recently trimmed some strips off of the cards from the kit in my shop, 'Pumpkin Spice' and noticed that the lovely mix of prints and colors was really inspiring to me. I instantly had a vision of it laid like a colorful brick pattern along a spread ... and that spread was this 'Dreamer' layout!
Hi lovely readers! I'm happy you're back with me today. I'm sharing a scrapbook layout titled 'Energetic' which is a hybrid page and I'm really digging the possibilities of trying this technique more! Let me know what you think!
Hi guys! I'm here today sharing a fun layout titled 'Adventure' and this layout is ALL about the title.

Check out the layout and all the details below!
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!
Hey there! So glad you've joined me today for this little 12 x 12 scrapbook layout titled 'Carefree'. It's a digitally based layout that is really focused on using fun colors and digital labels! The basis for this layout is a fun photo I took the other week in the office when there were cupcakes for breakfast. I'm a firm believer in living life to the fullest - no matter what time of day so capturing these carefree cupcakes for breakfast was a good start to my fun colorful layout. Based on this idea, I grabbed the script for the title from Little Lamm & Co.'s 'Hammock' Kit and got to work with some labels, colors and extra embellishments to top it all off like stitching and ampersands.
Hi guys! I'm back this week sharing another lovely layout I made using the 'Obsessed' digital stamps from the June Kellie Stamps release and some more elements from the 'Meraki' kit release from Little Lamm & Co. as well! If you haven't headed over to check those out yet - I highly recommend it! Keep scrolling to see how I used them to make a big bold title for my page titled 'I Love Us'.
Hey guys! Guess what time it is?! Kellie Stamps release time! Go grab yourselves some preorder goodness because she has some incredible things coming to the shop this month. I myself grabbed the 'Slim Jim' alpha and some 'Word Up' phrase stickers - can't wait to get my hands on those! But in the mean time - she's still rockin' in with a new digital release as well. I've used it here on my layout to share with you - the set is called 'Obsessed' and boy am I!
Hi all! I'm sharing a little layout that was featured over on Little Lamm & Co for the release of a new kit called Hammock. It's absolutely perfect for the summer and I hope you'll go grab some downloads for yourself! I chose some of the patterned papers and scrapbook elements to top off my layout.
Hey lovelies! I'm back this week sharing a little type of layout that I've been wanting to try for a while - a full page photo as my background! Here I've paired it with a full width title and some little embellishing. My goal was to keep it super simple and really let the photograph and bright colors shine. Hope you enjoy!
Hi guys! I'm back with another Sunday Sketch Series and today I want to introduce you to a way to scrap the sketch all together and cut out some of the work. It will be less creative, but when you're in a time crunch - using templates are a great way to get a usable 'sketch' and put it right to work in Photoshop. This week, I'm using a template from Little Lamm & Co's February templates and putting the basis of the design to work for me. Using templates is a great way to get a structure down for a page and then if you want, you can add in any extra embellishments that you want. Also, because it's in photoshop - you can manipulate the template as much as you want also!
Hey guys! If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw that I had a blog post over on Little Lamm & Co where I used her fabulous templates to start a new mini album for myself and I'm calling it the "#FromWhereIStand Mini". I'm simply taking all of my standing pictures from throughout the year and grouping them into a mini album. It's been really fun so far to see the change in shoes and outfits, where I've been and what I've stood on. I can't wait to continue it so this week I'm sharing my take with some Kellie Stamps Digital stamps from the 'Rad', 'Coffee', and 'AM to PM' stamp sets, a card from the 'You Got This' card set by Push Print Studio as well as some of my own hand lettering. Let's get to it!
Hey there, Curators! So lovely for you to join me again this week. Today I'm sharing a little 9" x 12" layout titled 'You're Cool' featuring, none other than my very cool nephew! He's been obsessed with hats since he knew what they were and insisted we get this fedora when we were out at target. I love documenting how he's growing and what better than a super geometric and trendy layout! See all the details below!
Hi guys! This week I'm back with another Sunday Sketch Series - It's a hybrid between scrapbook layout and pocket page so check it out below! I used this sketch to create my layout titled "Published Life" about a recent book that has some of my work in it and that I helped do the image editing for. I'm super stoked about it and if you're interested in checking it out it's called The Fashion Designer's Sketchbook and you can take a peek inside and purchase it here - it's a pretty rad book for anyone who wants to make a creative sketchbook happen.
Hi guys! Sorry I have been absentee lately - I got hit with an awful plague of a sinus infection recently and it really killed my mojo. Luckily - Kellie Stamps was there to pick me back up with an April Release! She's taken two previous favorites that were released as clear stamps and has brought them to her store as digital versions! Today I'm sharing a layout I made using the awesome stamp set - Rad in a layout I like to call '3'. Check it out below!
Hi there! So glad you've joined me. Today, I'm sharing a layout titled 'Selfie' that is all about grids and circles! With some mixed pattern digital stamps and a selfie in hand - I went to work to create this layout. It came together pretty seamlessly as soon as I picked a couple colors. Then it was just about balancing the prints and color throughout my gridded design.
Hey guys, I'm back with a fun take on a layout using a full page image as the background. To replicate this Sunday Sketch, there are many ways to interpret it. My fave is to simply doodle some digital confetti on your image before printing - like I've done with 'Celebrate' or you can throw a confetti transparency over it too! ( I'm Loving this one ). Either way, this is a fun trick to jazz up a layout without much embellishment involved!
