Workspace Wednesday


For my Two Peas in a Bucket Project Life spread, besides making a mess, I decided to use the Associate nesting die set. The teal cardstock was something I wanted to feature consistently throughout the whole layout.I typically use the Cuttlebug that I have had for years – it’s compact and folds up nicely. I also have the Fiskars Fuse, which takes up a bit […]

Cuppa reveal


As much as I loved this month’s Studio Calico kit, my time with it was rather limited. But to be honest, it’s what I love most about scrapbooking with kits. I am able to have everything I need in one place and then when I am ready, I can spread it all out in front of me to create. I got the Scrapbook kit, Card […]

Studio Calico Antiquary Main Scrapbook Kit | Step Out

Amy Tan | Studio Calico Kit Step-Out

First I gather all of the kit contents and determine which papers and embellishments will best fit my photos. Once my supplies are determined, I start cutting out journaling cards from the Dear Lizzy patterned paper and play around with possible arrangements. Next, I punch out a few circles from various patterned papers to place in a visual triangle around my layout. After I have […]

3x4 Punch | Little Mr. Right

My cousins gave me this adorable Hallmark card for the baby shower and I found the perfect way to save it for Project Life.I simply used the 3×4 We R Memory Keepers punch (which was available at Studio Calico and Two Peas in a Bucket) – just click Notify Me to be alerted when back in stock. The punch is easy to use, but I […]

How this layout came together

Studio Calico Double Scoop

As a surprise for my baby shower, JC’s family sent 4 photo albums to my BFF so that she could create a banner from old photographs. Then there was a handwritten note to just get the albums to us to have. I am really sentimental when it comes to this stuff, but JC isn’t so much. At one month away from our baby’s due date, […]

Studio Calico August Kits Reveal

exclusive amy tangerine for SC embroidery stencil kit

The only regret I have with these Marks & Co kits is that I didn’t have more time to work on the layouts. I received them while abroad on the babymoon (photos to come soon) and then had less than a week where I was cramming a ton of work along with readying the new place, along with fighting jet lag, shortness of breath, and […]

Milestones this month at Two Peas

hello bump2

It’s truly pregnancy brain when you turn to a friend and tell them you are stuck on an assignment for scrapbooking milestones. Without skipping a beat, she simply said, “how about your pregnancy?”. And then we went on to giggle about the whole thing. Here is how my Milestones layout came together. I started off with putting down a thin layer of gesso using a […]

SC Roundabout step out – hello melbourne


The Silhouette got a lot of use this month. The digital cut files are out of this world and so easy to use. I could have easily made a dozen layouts with the Roundabout kits from Studio Calico, but I was out of town for much of May. Actually, I spent every single weekend away from home. One of them was at Camp Calico, where […]
