Studio Calico Antiquary Main Scrapbook Kit | Step Out

Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutFirst I gather all of the kit contents and determine which papers and embellishments will best fit my photos.
Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutOnce my supplies are determined, I start cutting out journaling cards from the Dear Lizzy patterned paper and play around with possible arrangements.
Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutNext, I punch out a few circles from various patterned papers to place in a visual triangle around my layout.

Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutAfter I have my papers and photos cut down to size, I start gluing everything down.
Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutThis new Fiskars ProCision Trimmer is amazing (and offered at a really good price on Amazon). To add a little more visual interest to the page, I cut a strip of colorful triangles and adhere it just below the red line of the background paper.
Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutI then decide that there’s no way I can make this layout without using the amazing “Live Creatively” stamp, so I find a spot for it and stamp down.
Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutAs the embellishments start to come together, I add a handful of adhesive bling for color and texture.
Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutI also take the ribbon, fold it in half a few times (securing each fold with a little adhesive), and tuck it under my photo.
Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutI take advantage of the journaling prompt stickers and use the “hello, my name is” just underneath the green acetate letters.
Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-OutAnd finally, I hand write my journaling and call it good.

    Hi Amy, I have a tip for you re: the Fiskars Procision! I ended up buying it on a Black Friday sale right after you recommended it, but lately it’s been getting harder and harder to slide across. Well my husband came over and was fiddling around and noticed that, so he said, oh your rails need to be greased! Aha! He used some stuff called LPS lubricant, but I guess it’s “expensive” like $9/bottle haha but my Fiskars is now sliding like butter again!! The cuts have remained amazing though. Just thought I’d share this tip since I remember you had recommended it :)
