Lost River - Studio Calico Sneaks

I'm so excited to be contributing to the September gallery for
Studio Calico. The September kits - Lost River are absolutely
amazing!!! This month I created 4 layouts and a PL spread, 
and I think I might still have a couple of projects ahead. 
The kits are that good, I can't stop creating.

Here are a couple of sneaks, you can see the rest along
with the amazing sneaks from the CT in the gallery.

My tiny workspace

My scrap space has evolved throughout the years. This change
was mostly influenced by our growing family. At first I had the spare
bedroom as my dedicated scrap space, then I moved to a corner
of the basement/play room and now I'm in a tiny corner of
our master bedroom. And I have to admit that this is 
my favourite space yet. I love the natural light and mostly
my standing desk. 

Since space is at a premium I have to be careful not to 
let things pile up and think this has worked out fairly well 
for me. This armoire from Ikea is ideal for storing all my supplies.

Of course I also have lots of baskets and a trusty Raskog
cart from Ikea.

As you can see working with a small space really is possible.

DITL 4x4 mini album

Last year I participated in Ali Edwards DITL and opted to 
create a small 4x4 album to showcase my pictures. 

I opted for a simple design but really is there such a thing
when creating a mini album. I added lots of 3x4 journaling
cards for accents but also to showcase my journaling. 
I created layers using tags, transparencies and other accents. 
I love how this turned out, here are some of my
favourite pages. I hope you will
also be inspired to create a 4x4 album for your next DITL.

Studio Calico - June Main Documenter Kit

I'm a bit late posting my June projects for Studio Calico,
so here's my first project.  
This spread is one of my fave projects for that month. 
I only used the Documenter kit, this kit was so
good that it didn't need anything else. 

I love using the 6x12 format every once in a while, 
it's a fun size and perfect for showcasing 4x6 pics. 

I'll share more soon!

Summer Faves - Studio Calico

I shared this layout last week on the Studio Calico website
and thought it would be a good idea to share on the little old blog
as well. 

This is my 3rd layout that I created with the July kits, i love the
soft colour palette paired with the bold alpha and fun
summer accents. 

This layout came together while i was working on another layout, 
using the 4x6 paper pad I created layers that would
anchor my photograph. This is a fun and easy way to use up
the paper pads that compliment the monthly kits.

Hello friends! I'm back today to share another layout
I created with the amazing July Studio Calico kits - Pool Party!
To create this layout I used a mix of the Documenter and 
Scrapbook kit, both as so very perfect for my fave summer pics.

Ride - Studio Calico July Kits

I didn't get to contribute to the July gallery but I still had fun 
creating with the awesome July kits - Pool Party.
Love the soft colour palette paired with the fun and
colour full accents. 

The SC gallery is such an awesome source of inspiration, 
I hope you will take a moment to check it out.
