Studio Calico – The Underground kits

amy tangerine- studio calico

Every month when I receive my latest Studio Calico kits, the first thing I do is smile. Then I open up the scrapbook kit. It’s full of unique items that always inspire me to make pages right away. The wooden letters in this kit pair perfectly with the neutral patterned papers. Love how they pop with the white cardstock and a bit of black machine […]


Happy New Year! We spent the last day of 2013 with a bad case of food poisoning (wait, is there ever a good case of that?!). We think it was from some salmon we had the night before. Luckily, Jack was not affected and we’re feeling more normal today. This year I plan on documenting using Project Life once again. This time, like the past […]

Amy Tan Project Life

It was an honor to be on the 2013 Project Life Creative Team. This year seemed to fly right on by. Though I skipped more than 10 weeks randomly throughout this year – my Australia & New Zealand trip is completely missing – I am grateful for this way of documenting. Kari posted this last batch of projects on Becky’s blog. Here’s one of my […]

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 […]

Project Life on Two Peas

There are so many new products that are now available at Two Peas in A Bucket. I chose to showcase 3 new collections for this week’s Project Life video. Since I have found a nice rhythm and routine for what works to getting the spreads done, there aren’t really too many mind-blowing techniques shown. New products and a couple tricks here and there to make […]

Week in the Life + a giveaway


Decided to participate in Ali Edwards’ Week in the Life once again. I did it in 2010 for the first time and then again in 2011 – there are 2 posts from that year that inspired me to do this again as so much has changed in 2 years. Here’s the Sunday + Monday one and Tuesday’s from 2011. Last year I didn’t do a […]

Project Life on Two Peas

Ironic that my last video featured a trip abroad, while this week I was challenged with being in a new house with limited supplies. My studio won’t be set up for another couple weeks (right around the same time the baby is due), so I had to work on the coffee table. And I had my friend Kara in town to help out. The week […]

Project Life update


Sharing another spread today. This was done after a fun chat with Elise Blaha and Becky Higgins on the Paperclipping Roundtable. I really wanted to keep it simple after the discussion. I had my photos printed with my Canon SELPHY CP900 Wireless Photo Printer. I find that wirelessly beaming photos to the printer via the Canon IEPP app has helped a huge amount. I then […]

Guest Post | Project Life with Kinsey


I met Amy a few weeks ago for the very first time at Camp Calico and having followed her work and her blog for years, I was pretty stoked. I brought my PL stuff and some other work stuff with me to Camp Calico just in case we had a little free time here and there to kill, which we did so I grabbed my […]
