Ah, June stamp sets already? How did we get here so quickly?! I have enjoyed playing with these sets this month. These colors are just everything! So fun and happy! The Great Outdoors set is one of my faves. I think I will use it all summer long! :) And it's been awhile, but I loved decorating my planner for an upcoming trip! (LOTS of photos coming soon! Too much fun in Arizona! :) ) These are just a little sample of this month's release. I totally plan on digging in and getting more done! :) Check them out before they're all gone!
Hi there! How is it JUNE already?! That means we are halfway done with 2016?! WHAT!!! I am happy to share June's kit at Studio Calico, SCOUT! How cute is that name? I have here the Main SB kit. There are so many goodies that I combined here, all included in the main kit. The acrylic word, the chipboard numbers, the stamp set (make a wish and the candles) I stamped onto the watercolored tabs, the washi and the acetate circles and the specialty paper. LOVE it all!! This little notebook is included in the Planner kits. I love the little size and colored papers, I am going to be using this as my purse notebook over the summer. Perfect size! Hope you get a chance to pop over for the reveal! It's a good one! Happy beginning of summer! :)
This month at Kelly Purkey's shop, I was able to design a kit and have it come to life! I designed this stamp set and some 4x4 cards. I was inspired by the things I love most: love, home and family. I am so excited to see it and feel it in my hands and USE them! I can't wait to see others begin to use them. I've seen a bit and will compile a blog post on that shortly! Kelly's stamps and cards this month are so fun. I love the words are the greatest gift card because I am actually always telling my husband, just give me words. He has a gift with the words and I treasure them completely. So this month really hit home for me. Go Kelly! :) Here's the link to shop!
Here's a little spread I made in my passport size midori. Our oldest daughter is off to University this fall and there are so many feelings that go with that, that I knew I wasn't ready to dive in and let the tears loose! So starting small with the little passport size I love. Be sure to stock up before they're all gone! Or even better, sign up for a membership!
Just a quick hello on National Scrapbook Day! I love that I live in a country that celebrates documenting and recording memories. Be sure to check out Studio Calico's activities throughout the day and the sitewide 30%off at The Lily Pad! :) Hope you get some crafting time in today! Thanks for being part of my creative story. xo
I am so excited to announce a new class I will be teaching during the summer at Studio Calico. It's called Summer of Sketches and is enrolling now! I have an amazing set of contributors who will be joining me and we are going to be doing something fun with the class- it'll be a sketch class in Round Robin form! It'll start with a sketch/layout and then we will pass it on to the next person who will then interpret that sketch to their own and pass it on! I'm so excited to see it unfold! Check out the stamp set Tina from Life Love Paper designed for the class! It's free with class purchase and will ship free too!! Available while supplies last so make sure to grab yours!!
Here are a few samples from the class from Paige Evans and Lisa Truesdell. Crazy good right?! Here's a little more info about the class!
12 start-to-finish videos from Jamie, showing how she went from sketch to finished layout. Jamie will be sharing tips and tricks for adapting layouts to fit the number and sizes of photos you have, and ideas for switching them up to keep your projects looking fresh, no matter how many times you use the same sketch.
Round robin inspiration : See how each sketch changes as it passes from one artist to another! We'll start each week's lesson with a sketch based on Jamie's work, then each scrapbooker will work from a sketch of the layout created by the person before them.
36 all new layouts from Jamie and her contributors
48 sketches - 12 sketches based on Jamie's past work, plus 36 more based on the class projects.
A printable PDF of all of the class sketches
Access to a class message board and gallery, where you can share and learn with your teacher and fellow students
Weekly challenges to inspire you to use what you've learned
I'm usually a handmade kinda girl for Mother's Day but this popped in my email and really caught my eye! Look at how you could customize your desktop while helping moms at the same time.A portion of the proceeds from the exclusive Orange Rose Collection will go towards the organization this Mother's Day. I am torn between FLOWER BOUQUET and MOVE ME. There's also some cute items too, journals and art prints. I am floored that you can turn this journal into a planner or address book with their easy addons. LOVE THIS ONE. I know I would LOVE a new set of stationary for the snail mail lover in me. This one is gorgeous! HELLO! These napkins! Usually I find myself flustered this time of year, we've got lots of birthdays, graduations and Mother's Day. I'm going to give myself permission to purchase gifts that have already been designed. :) There's a coupon in the banner to the right hand side, too! :)

Digital Scrapbook day is next Saturday and the amazing Liz has put this set together for you, free download until Tuesday, May 3rd. There's photo templates, available in 3×4 and 4×6 sizes, featuring hand drawn script. The individual wordart elements are also included as individual PNG files. I printed a few pieces out for an upcoming trip I'm taking and using my new Passport Size Midori Traveler's Notebook to keep it all together. I'm beyond excited! :)
