'WORK' Scrapbook Layout

As you may know, I've been partaking in the Studio Calico Design School Class and well, it's got me inspired over here! Combining two challenges–typography and pattern–I made this scrapbook layout titled 'Work' with a hand-lettered background which incorporated my large title as well. Keep reading to see how I did it and to see more details about this page!

'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!

'Carefree' Scrapbook Layout

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.
