Having so much fun playing with next month’s kits from @studio_calico. Give me all the pretty layers ❤️ Here’s a peak at the August Travelers Notebook kit. #scaugustsneaks

I went simple for this 6x12 spread about our low-key July 4th celebrations using the July digital SBTM kit from @aliedwardsdesigninc. So many pretty elements in this kit that I can’t wait to use. (And, as always, super impressed by the quality @persnicketyprints.) #aecreativeteam #craftthestory #aliedwards

Working on my upcoming class for @bigpictureclasses and I so enjoyed looking back on the last year and a half. I never would have guessed how much this hobby would bring into my life...including the countless amazing women in this community ❤️ #memorykeeping #pocketpages

We’re back from vacation and first on the agenda is finishing my #weekinthelife album (definitely before laundry 😉). Hope my fellow Americans had a great 4th! How is it July already??? #aeweekinthelife #witl #craftthestory

Using the new @aliedwardsdesigninc Tech Story Kit to write a love letter to Alexa. As ridiculous as it sounds, she’s a little piece of technology that has made our home a happier place. ❤️ (ps: apparently typos happen when inspiration strikes at midnight...lesson learned 😉) #craftthestory #aecreativeteam

My travel album is finished! The 3x8 size was a blast to play with and this chunky guy is almost 40 pages. Check out my completed album, video walkthrough, and a fun process video in the @aliedwardsdesigninc Travel Product Play class, launching June 26th (get all the details on the AE site). So excited to be contributing to this class along with three other creative team members, as well as Ali. Hope to see you there! #craftthestory #aecreativeteam #travelproductplay

Week 23 completed using the @aliedwardsdesign June Digital Kit. Quick and easy on this one. I had way too many pictures that I wanted to include...that’s why I love the flexibility that digital products provide. Happy Friday, everyone!! #aecreativeteam #craftthestory #pocketpages #scrapbooking

The @aliedwardsdesigninc July Stories by the Month kit is live today! Really loved this travel-themed kit and put it to good use on a spread for our 2014 trip to St. Lucia. Man, she was so little 😭. There’s a post about this one on the blog if you’d like to see more (link in profile). Happy Wednesday, friends! #craftthestory #aecreativeteam

Still in denial to be joining this group of incredibly talented ladies on the @studio_calico creative team. Starting in August, I’ll be working with both the documenter and traveler’s notebook kits. I can’t thank you enough for having me #studiocalico. ❤️

Getting started on my travel album for the @aliedwardsdesigninc Travel Product Play class coming June 26. This release has been so fun to play with. Head over to the site and sign up for the class (there’s a link in my profile). @aliedwards and three other super-talented ladies from the creative team (@smultringunn @pambaldwin @amygretchenstudio)will be sharing their completed albums and some amazing process tips. Hope to see you in the classroom! Happy weekend, friends! #craftthestory #aecreativeteam #travelproductplay

More progress on my #aeweekinthelife album. Does anyone else include kids rooms? It’s something that didn’t occur to me until I saw Ali’s video (this is only my second #witl). It’s such a great idea. Especially when they’re small, I feel like their rooms are constantly changing. I just found out that Ben will be getting a Sidney Crosby fathead in 5-7 days, so I’m glad I got the picture before the Pittsburg sports take over. Sigh. #craftthestory #witl #projectlife #scrapbooking

Have you ever noticed that sometimes the timing is just perfect for a @aliedwardsdesigninc Story Kit? This month’s Grow theme is amazing. Last weekend was Ava’s dance recital. Ava spent the first three years of her life in physical therapy and didn’t walk till she was about two. Per her therapist’s recommendations, we found something athletic/physical that she enjoyed, started at two years old, and stuck with it. This was both for actual practice and confidence building. At almost six, she hasn’t quite caught up with her peers on the playground and other sports (which she notices). But, she is the BEST dancer in her advanced class and she works so hard and loves it so much. And that, my friends, is sure as hell a story I wanted to tell 😉 #aecreativeteam #craftthestory
