Oh no! Where did the time go? With the new year I decided to aim for a 100 blog posts this year. There is no room for a two week skip! For five of those days I've been sick with the flu, but for the rest I have no valid excuse.

And so the "On The grid" class have started. I was in awe over the first lesson. OMG! How much amazing inspo was in there? If you're in the class you know what I'm talking out. I'm pretty sure this is going to be my favorite Studio Calico class to date. Because, you know, GRIDS!

I've been digging into my stash when scrapbooking this year. I'm sort of attacking all my older kits at once, and am having a great time just mixing everything up. Walden is a huge fave of mine, and will soon be gone. 

I've really gotten into hybrid scrapbooking, and often design my layout in PSE. Then I delete the layers that don't go on the background, and print. Add the remaining pieces, embellish, done!

Here is a photo grid layout I made last week:

Materials: Studio Calico kits Walden, The Underground and Hello, Hello.

We haven't had much snow this winter so I wanted to document the few really snowy days we've had. I put the photo collage together in PSE, and left some space above my journaling to fit a title. I didn't have a plan for the title, so after printing I just picked out some alphas I had in my stash and played around with the. This is what I liked the best. Those veneers are awesome! I still had some space left after adding the title and I love how this black border sticker anchored the page. 

And here is another grid layout that is quite different from the first: 

Materials: Studio Calico kit Walden and Baker Street addon, Far Far Away digital brushes

On january 2nd our son woke up in the middle of the night and exclaimed "I want to go to that place where you psark underneath the building, and there are little rooms that you can play in." Then he went back to sleep. So IKEA it was! When we got there more people had had the same thought, and so we had to wait a long time to get our lunch. This is me trying to entertain him while waiting for daddy to bring our food. I LOVE this patterned paper, and it really felt like IKEA to me. I can totally picture as one of their fabrics. I decided to cover half of the page in this paper, and the other half with some sort of grid. I designed this layout in PSE as well, this time planning the title and printing it and the journaling but hiding the photo. After printing I added the photo printed on glossy photo paper, the tag and stitched on the floral paper. 

I actually did order the scrapbook kit for February and it arrived today. So fast! I'm hoping to get some time to create this weekend, besides celebrating our son's 7th birthday and taking our daughter to her first dance class of this semester.

Have fun creating!
