This is a vacation picture from China. I wanted to use up my scraps so I laid out my strips of paper scraps into a sort of patchwork. Super easy! I used Crate's Random collection - love the pink woodgrain :)
I really love this photo with my friends. We took it with a simple point&shoot camera, but the lighting was perfect with the setting sun behind us, so we got a pretty shot. This layout also uses Crate's Random collection.
This next layout is part of a tutorial I wrote for the Crate Paper blog. Since I don't have a Cricut/Silhouette/digital cutter, I often put my craft knife and scissors into good use. The tutorial on the Crate blog (here) shows how I put together the 'joy' title on this layout :) I mainly used Crate's Peppermint collection for this; it's such a great holiday line!
I think I'm all caught up now. I have yet another busy week ahead with school & work, but I hope to post some Studio Calico October sneaks sometime. I can't believe SC reveal night is just a little over a week away!
