Scrapbooking Big

Sometimes I like to hoard elements and hold onto them when I love them dearly but I'm coming to terms with the fact that I'm continuously getting new products through kit subscriptions, my own creation, and splurging, and I just need to use them! So this week, I'm sharing a lesson in scrapbooking big, and using up your supplies–yes even those coveted ones!

Video | 2017 Project Life Week 1

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!

'Morning Hello' Scrapbook Layout

Hi guys! I'm back today sharing a little layered grid layout titled 'Morning Hello'. It's fun and vibrant using the recent kit from Studio Calico 'Pool Party'. To complete this layout, I punched some 2"x2" squares with my Fiskars XL punch and layered them atop each other in a funky skewed grid. Once my papers were down with a little Tombow permanent adhesive I stitched through them with some textured embroidery thread in three straight lines. Once that was complete, I attached my photo on some pop dots and finished the spread with a little strip of date paper at the top! Check below to see all the details up close!

'The Dream is Real' Scrapbook Layout

Hey guys! Who doesn't love documenting the successes and wins in life? Well I sure do - so I want to share one of those layouts with you today! I know not all of our lives are perfect but when the opportunity to scrap some happiness strikes - I'll definitely take it. Because the subject matter was pretty darn happy, I chose to make this spread bright and playful. The main focus is the title and smattering of transparent circles but I definitely think they compliment the photo quite nicely. For all the products and information - check down below!

Fast + Fabulous Friday No. 57

Hey guys! This week I'm here with a quick and fun layout that brings back the painting! I started off this layout with an idea - I had recently received a couple color theory acrylic paints and I just knew I wanted to make my own patterned paper with them. I just scattered some brush stroke filled grey circles in a polka dot pattern across my 9X12 paper and then added spontaneous green leaves where I felt compelled. Once I had this lovely paper made, I didn't want to detract too much with crazy embellishments so I chose a simple photo, placed some thickers over it for my title and placed a journaling tag and one number ticket from the current Film Club Kit from Studio Calico.

Sunday Sketch Series No. 55

Hey there! Today I have a new layout for you titled "Style". I fell in love with the cork piece from the Studio Calico Film Club Scrapbook Kit this month that says 'You've Got Style'. I just knew it was a perfect fit for all the photos of my nephew in his excellent clothing choices! I grabbed a photo and played around with this scrapbook sketch until I was happy with the layout as a whole which basically included scattering an array of enamel pieces and wood veneer throughout the layout! Check out the sketch and the completed page below!
