Studio Calico // Carolina Moon Sneaks

The Carolina Moon reveal is tonight at Studio Calico (the link will be active at 12pm for subscribers and 12am for non-subscribers)!  The kits this month are SO MUCH fun!  I love the mix of colors and embellishments!  Lots of pretty pops of red and bronze and gold and yellow!  

Here's a little peek of the kits this month!  Just LOVE!

And here are a few sneaks of my projects!  Like always, I couldn't stop once I got started!  I'll be back shortly with a full reveal!  Hope to see you a chat tomorrow at 11am and 11pm.  I hear there are some good giveaways going on!  :)


April Project Life Album: Part I

My little collection of albums is just growing and growing! I really love trying out new sizes and being able to add in random bits and pieces into my books.  

This month, I switched from the awesome 6x8 vertical size (be prepared to see that again) to more of a 6x8 horizontal size.  I thought this would be an easy switch seeing that the majority of my photos are landscape, but it was a little tricky.  I figured it out though, and now I have a book slammed full of our April memories. 

I'm over on the Studio Calico blog today sharing a look at my album, as well as another quick walk through video!  I used all of my Lisse Street kits for my album - I love how everything works so well together!  And I love that there are "no rules" when it comes to supplies!  I hope you will check it out and let me know what you think!!  

Four months, four books.  Bam!


Creative Jumpstarts 14

Happy Monday, friends!
Today, Marcy and I have another fun Creative Jumpstarts to share with you!  We are switching back to pocket scrapping this week and our challenge for you is to incorporate some type of insert into your albums!

I decided to work in my March Project Life album for this challenge.  I had a bunch of extra photos from March that didn't make it into my pages, so I created a vellum envelope to store them.  I used one piece of vellum, folded in half to create my insert.  Before I folded and sewed the edges, I printed a few digital brushes onto the right hand side of my page.  I love the effect the brushes add, and I love being able to see through the vellum pages.

I kept my pocket super easy by just sewing the edges, punching holes and adding in my photos.  I thought about including a few extra embellishments to jazz it up, but similar is definitely easier these days!! 

And that's our challenge for you this week - create an insert in your Project Life albums! And if you don't do pocket scrapping, then try and incorporate some type of "insert" or envelope onto your project!  Have fun and happy creating!

Creative Jumpstarts were created by Marcy Penner and Stephanie Bryan to challenge each other with their paper endeavors. Delivered in the form of bimonthly challenges, they encourage us (and hopefully you too) to stretch supplies, think outside of the box and to remain intentional about the memories we capture.  Challenges are posted on the first and third Mondays of every month.  Projects are shared on our blogs and on Instagram using the hashtag #creativejumpstarts. We'd love it if you'd share along with us at either of those places and be sure to tag us (@helloforeverpaperco and @stephaniebryan) if you do!


Around Here

Just a glimpse of our life right now! Spring is here and everyday is full of bike rides, playgrounds and sand pits! We've also had fun birthdays and rainy beach trips to keep our days full! I love how color starts creeping into our days and our photos as soon as spring! Happy April and happy Spring, friends!
