Summer Trips

I have been constantly on the go this month of June… but I really cannot complain! I was fortunate enough to be able to add a couple days to some work trips and turn them partly into a vacation. 🙂
And since it’s time for the weekly 50% sale on select products at The Lilypad, I started getting these trips scrapped too. I am also especially thrilled because I never have any beach photos usually, since we’re not really beach people, but this time we had some nice walks on the beach and I took some pictures! 🙂

First off, a trip to Savannah, GA, using a template that is 50% off and other products from this month’s BYOC.

Next, Cape Cod! Everything I used here is 50% off.

I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer too so far!

Design School

I’m so excited about the latest class at Studio Calico: Design School by Catherine Davis. Catherine has always such a unique way to use product, and comes up with absolutely striking designs. I can’t wait to learn more about her creative process!

Here’s some more info about the class:

DESIGN SCHOOL

School is back in session! Join Catherine Davis, Director of Product & Design here at Studio Calico, to explore the art of creating scrapbook layouts that “wow.” In this class, Catherine reveals tips and tricks for structuring your page designs, creating movement on your page, using typography as a design element, and more. You’ll learn everything you need to know to make confident design choices and stay inspired to create gorgeous layouts!
While supplies last, Design School students will receive a free workbook to hold class inspiration. Each lesson has its own section with room for lesson notes, page ideas and sketches – use it to record what you learn in class and you’ll have a great reference tool. This workbook is sized to fit in a Traveler’s Notebook, and will ship for free, no matter where you are! 

You can enroll here – I’ll see you in class!

Happy Summer!

Hello there! I’ve been quiet lately because I’ve been quite busy, and traveling quite a bit. So far, it’s been a good summer and I hope it stays this way. But it’s time for the weekly 50% off sale at The Lilypad, so I had to at least scrap these 2 pages about my travels. 🙂

My travels brought me to the Southeast earlier this month, and I would have loved it, if it weren’t for the heat. It was still pretty great!

Studio Calico June 2016 Kits: Scout – Scrapbook Page

I also made an 8.5″x11″ scrapbook page using the Scout Documenter kit and add ons. I love how it turned out!

I used the Scout Documenter kit and add on (Mockingbird), as well as the bug cards, 4×6 paper pad, the extrovert stamp and the craft dies.

The only item I used that isn’t from the Scout release is the script die “I love you mom”.

I am in love with this pattern with the squares (my favorite this month!) and was going to hoard it, but then I decided it was worth using on this page about my mom. 🙂

There you have it – a scrapbook page made with Documenter products.

The Scout reveal is at 3 PM EST today, but subscribers can shop early (starting at noon EST).

Studio Calico June 2016 Kits: Scout – Cards

I also received the card stamp and dies this month, and they were lots of fun to use!

For this card I used the Bug stamp set, the “You’re Sweet” die and the 4×6 paper pad.

I also made a matching envelope.

Here I used the Bug stamp set and added watercolor to the bugs.

On this card I used the Bug stamp set, and the “you’re sweet” and “fun” script dies.

I had lots of fun painting this card! It used the Bug and the Extrovert stamp sets.

I hope you enjoyed these cards! The Scout kits are fantastic this month!

Studio Calico June 2016 Kits: Scout – Documenter kit – Project Life insert

The Scout reveal is at 3 PM EST today, but subscribers can shop early (starting at noon EST).
You can subscribe to the Documenter kit here.

This is a 6″x8″ insert for a busy week in my Project Life album. I combined the Scout Documenter kit, embellishments from the Mockingbird add on, and the Introvert stamp.

here is the front of the insert:

and the back:

And here are some details.

The “it was written in the stars” card is another favorite this month! I layered the fabulous glitter tape and rubber embellishments in the Mockingbird add on here.

The stamp is from the Introvert set (currently sold out, but hit “notify me” if you want it to be restocked).

I stuck the vellum alpha stickers from Mockingbird on some white cardboard adhered with foam dots to make them pop.

This was such a fun little insert to make!

Studio Calico June 2016 Kits: Scout – Documenter kit *main kit only*

I am so in love with this month’s Documenter kit! It’s one of my favorites ever!
I made three Project Life spreads with the main kit and the add on products.

This is the first project I made with this month’s kits and I am so in love with the colors! It’s made with the Scout Documenter main kit only. Here is a look at the left page:

And here is the right page:

And here are some detail shots.

Here you can get a closer look at the washi tape (I love it!) which I used to cover up a part of the card, and layered some alpha stickers on top. The circle with 2016 is a plastic transparent piece. I also used the stamp included in the main kit.

Here are some more images stamped with the set – the stamp set is designed by One Little Bird and it’s only of my favorite stamps ever for Project Life!

The kit also comes with washi strips and chipboard stars – you can see both here.

Also included in the kit is a set of adorable bubble-shaped sticky notes – I used them here to create a design matching one of the journaling cards included in the kit.

This is one of my favorite journaling cards this month! The “fave” is stamped with the stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed this project! It’s really a fabulous kit this month!

Studio Calico June 2016 Kits: Scout – Documenter kit – week 15

For this spread, I used the Scout Documenter kit, the Mockingbird add on, and the Extrovert stamp. I also added some digital stamps directly to my photos.

We were in New York for half of the week and the majority of the photos are from that stay. 🙂

Here are some detail shots.

On this card and throughout the spread, I adhered the vellum letters from Mockingbird on white cardstock so they would show up better. I use staples to adhere the rubber pieces.

The “let’s go out” stamp is from the Extrovert stamp by One Little Bird.

Here you can see the digital stamps I added to the photo.

More digital stamps, and my favorite card from the Mockingbird add on. I love how you get doubles of the cards in the add on, so you can use both front and back if you want.

That glitter tape + rubber embellishments from the Mockingbird add on were a favorite of mine!
