2016 Project Life // China

Forever behind on Project Life, but c'est la vie. I spent ten days in China earlier this year and made three pocket page spreads summarizing the trip for my album. I'm finally getting the chance to photograph, edit and blog about them today.  Here they are!

In a Creative Bubble products: Travelogue prompt cards (travelogue card), In the Woods cards (mountains, explore, + dark green cards), In the Woods digital stamps

One of my favorite ways to decorate a journaling card is to add a strip of washi tape and a phrase sticker.

I made a simple filler card by using a journaling card, sticker from my stash, and tiny Studio Calico alpha stickers to spell out the place we visited.

In a Creative Bubble products: In the Woods cards (the great outdoors, wander, + adventure cards), Travelogue cards no.1 (here's the story card)

I typed out the name of the place we went to using a typerwriter-style font, printed it out, and stapled it to the bottom of this card. I really like how that turned out.

Another example of a journaling card + washi tape.

Studio Calico // Lost River

It's September and that means a new kit has been released at Studio Calico! The September kits are the perfect ones to transition into fall with lots of versatile patterns and a fun outdoors-y vibe. I used the September Lost River scrapbook kit to make three projects this month, and I just wanted to share them here today.

Wild & Free
This is a simple grid layout using the main kit and some of the coordinating printables. To add interest to the squares, I cut some of them in half and diagonally to feature different patterns. I really like how it turned out :)

I used both the scrapbook kit and the Fountain Square add-on for this layout. I punched out the gold dot paper with my 2" circle punch and it adds some whimsy to this star background paper.

GO (mini)
I was inspired by the mini envelopes in the scrapbook kit and used them to make a mini-book documenting my trip to Europe this past summer. I kept everything really simple and will have a tutorial on the SC blog later this month!

As always, there are monthly scrapbook, documenter and planner workshops for more inspiration with the kits and I'm excited to announce that I'm teaching the documenter workshop this month!

In the workshop I'll be sharing three pocket page spreads, process videos and some inspiration on using the kit. There's also a digital printable I've designed just for this workshop so I hope you check it out :)
