Short bio: I I have always had a passion for capturing the little details I want to remember 10 years from now. When I discovered paper scrapbooking through Studio Calico in the summer of 2011 I fell in love with the whole process. Today I love creatively stretching myself with new techniques and styles as I document the simple moments in our life that make up our everyday. I find inspiration anywhere, from my daughter's scribbles on her math homework to the morning newspaper.
How did you get started scrapbooking? I started digital scrapbooking in 2007 and thought it was the only way I would every scrapbook because I loved it so much! Then in the summer of 2011 I discovered Studio Calico and it was love at first sight! The thought of a perfectly cultivated box of goodies arriving at my door each month turned me into a paper scrapbooker quicker than I could say YES PLEASE!
What is your favorite American Crafts product? American Crafts puts out some of the most innovative products in our community but I have to say my favorite is their paper! The colors and designs are something you just aren't going to find elsewhere!
I love finding cheap little journals at my favorite stores and bringing them to life with my favorite scrapbooking products! Addison (7) is LOVING journals these days and I thought she needed one for summer. The cork bike is my favorite and sets the perfect mood!

I love the camera stamp from Amy Tangerine and thought it would make such a fun background so I just used my gelatos and created this rainbow/watercolor effect, I loved it so much I created a card with the same idea!

I loved creating this stamped watercolors effect for the layout so I thought I would try it out on a card as well. I simply used the black and white Thickers as a pop for the title and let the stamp do the rest of the work. Perfect for my tween girl! She loved it!

I was leaving for a week and wanted to make some cute cards for the kids to read while we were gone. I fell in love with the ice cream paper and decided to cut out a handful of those adorable cones to make this card. The kids loved it of course!!
