For the month of May I will be sharing all my pages at once. My Studio Calico PL kit was late to arrive, and I have been very busy preparing for something fun I will share with you soon. 

I started the monthly page with the large chipboard piece that came in the kit. I embossed it with Zing opaque white and added a few embellishments. The happy mail text is not a digi brush. I put it together using two different fonts in PSE. Pam Baldwin's Text Tricks class at BPC has been great for me in learning how to combine fonts. I have much more to learn in that area.

How awesome is the digi brush in the bottom right card? It's in a set called Sm(art) Mouth by Paislee Press and One little bird. Originally it's said This is how I roll,but I edited it in PSE to say we instead. I started out with a blank 4x6 canvas, cropped my photos to circles and layered them on the background. The digi brush was my last layer. After printing I added the yellow number stickers.

These two pages go together as a spread. The page on the right is half a Design A page protector. On the left I used these 3x4 templates by Paislee Press.

On the back of the 6x12 page I have documented Swedish Mother's Day which was May 31st. At the top there's a flip-up pocket, that I cut from the leftovers and attached with washi tape.

Inside are pictures of the cards my kids drew for me. And that is the end of my May pages. I'm currently working on my pages for June, and will share them soon.

I hope you are enjoying your summer so far!



  1. Fab pages, Magdalena and your new 'do looks great! Love the embellishing you add onto your photos, I really should try that more since they wind up in PSE for editing and printing anyways! ;)

  2. Your pages are gorgeous and I just love how you embossed the May title and added the stars. I don't know what to do with mine yet but definitely need to brighten it up from that plain old gray!
