I'm an Auntie again!

My sister in law (Jared’s sister) had her first baby girl last week and we are all smitten (especially her big cousins)

Maybe some pink layouts in my future?



Summer Voices with Ali Edwards

I don’t really know how I forgot to post this here but I did! Ali and Katie went to Paris and had some friends guest post on their blog while they were gone.

I was over there last week talking about my favorite time of year SUMMER! with this page:

Thanks for having me Ali and Katie!


Big Titles

I made this Disneyland Project Life album insert from a recent trip for a Studio Calico weekly challenge. I love scrapping trips so this won’t be the last time you see photos from this trip I’m sure!


Next on the list of things to learn...Letterpress!

SO excited about the latest class to be offered at Studio Calico!

I LOVE letterpress and I can’t wait to be able to do it at home!

If you’re like me and just starting out here’s what you’ll need:
•A willingness to explore and make a few mistakes along the way
Lifestyle Crafts L Letterpress platform bundle
•Manual diecut machine (Cuttlebug, Epic, Big Shot, Evolution)
Letterpress Paper (have extra on hand, so you can experiment without running out!)
Letterpress Ink (the sample pack in the class kit will start you off, but you’ll want more of your favorite colors)

This is what the class kit looks like

SO excited! Check out the class page for some more info or all the Letterpress goodies that will be available in the shop (click “notify me” to be emailed as soon as they’re in stock)

Who’s learning along with me?!


Elle's Studio CHA Layouts

I’m not sure which of these were displayed because I know Elle was short on space but here are the layouts I created for the Elle’s Studio Summer CHA booth!

This one using Cameron

And these 3 using Noel - love the chalkboard paper!

It’s weird scrapping Christmas when it’s 115F outside, but then I remembered that it’s Summer for Christmas in Australia so it really shouldn’t be that weird.
