Video Tutorial: Goodnight Moon

Hey guys! I wanted to extend a big thank you to the awesome Studio Calico community for your support and enthusiasm for my Goodnight Moon layout, which has been selected as the “layout of the week”! Thank you so much!! PBALDWIN_JAN28_EVERYONEHASASTORYI received a question about how this layout came together, or more specifically, which parts are digital and which parts are paper. So I’ve whipped up a quick little video walk-through to break it down a bit more.

This layout is made with digital products from Ali Edwards’ “Everyone Has A Story” set, as well as paper products from the Studio Calico Far Far Away Scrapbook Kit (patterned paper), Project Life Kit (pink chipboard hearts with gold flecks), and Ivy Tower Add-on (that’s where the little moon and big letter “E” came from!).

PBALDWIN_JAN28_EVERYONEHASASTORY_DETAIL2Here’s a closer peek at the story 🙂 (and yes, I know there’s a typo…hate when that happens!) The font in the journaling here is “Avenir”.PBALDWIN_JAN28_EVERYONEHASASTORY_DETAIL1A

This little cluster of the moon with the heart and the gold  splatters and the “little stories” banner just might be my favourite. The title font is “Franklin Gothic”

Please feel free to ask your questions and I’ll do my best to answer them!!

Thanks again for all your support! It is sincerely appreciated 🙂


Hello friends!!

Things have been a little quiet around this space for the last few weeks, but it’s definitely NOT  due to a lack of crafty projects!! In fact, it’s exactly the opposite! Lots of exciting things in the works that I can’t wait to share more about 🙂

First up, I am so very excited to be a contributor to Studio Calico’s February class “On the Grid”, led by the amazingly talented (and Canadian!) Marcy Penner. The list of people contributing to this class is incredible…seriously! As cool as it is to be a contributor, I’m actually more excited about being a class participant. Tonnes of inspiration to be had from these ladies, for sure!! Here’s a little sneak peak of my project.SC on the grid sneak  It’ll be exclusive to the class, so I guess you’ll just have to sign up if you want to see more 😉

Then, I got an invite to be one of the “Guest Storytellers” for Ali Edwards’ Story Kits and Story Stamps for theme of “Gatherings”. Let me back up a bit and explain what a huge deal this is for me! I’ve always been an HUGE Ali fan. Without a doubt, it’s her style and approach to scrapbooking that got me hooked on this hobby in the first place! I’m not sure I would be doing this today had I not come across Ali’s articles in the “Creating Keepsakes” magazines 6ish years ago. When just the idea of the Story Kits was announced last fall, they went straight to the top of my Christmas list! I may have “helped” Santa along a bit and signed up for those babies ASAP. The kits are really and truly perfect, but the online classroom content that accompanies the subscription every single month…. I have no words. Ali has a way of presenting the themes each month that make me want to cry (in a good way!!) because they resonate so deeply. Best scrapbooking purchase I have ever made…EVER. I’m not trying to sell you on a kit. I just really honestly believe that. When I was invited to be a guest storyteller, it took about a nanosecond for me to say “YES!!!”. So my guesting gig goes live tomorrow (February 1st)! I’m sharing 2 layouts and a lengthy process video that are exclusive to the classroom. Here’s a little peek…AE Gatherings sneek 3 AG Gatherings sneek 1 AE Gatherings sneek 2

But that’s not all, nope, that is not all… I’ve been working my butt off on a new BIG project! So big that I don’t even have all of the details about it yet…ha!! But I can give you a little peek:sneak peek 1 sneak peek 2AND…I’ve got a couple projects all finished up for the AE Digital Design Team 🙂 This layout came together with the “Enough” digital stamp setAE EnoughAE Enough detailThe story is real. But the stamp set, that’s what inspired me to tell it.

You may remember that my as part of my One Little Word (Reflect) this year, I wanted to start a Gratitude Journal. I ended up making one for myself using a favourite photo and the digital “2015 date stamps”. I’m hoping to have another post up soon to show you what’s inside and how it came together 🙂 Gratitude journalWhile I was at it, I made a little art/story journal for Liam too!Art journalSo, that’s pretty much filled up my January! I didn’t realize how much I’d actually accomplished until I put this post together. There’s still lots of work to do, but I’m excited about it! I want to say “the finish line is in sight”, but that’s not really true because I think it’s really just the beginning…and I’m excited to see what’s next 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by!!


Video Tutorial: Working with Studio Calico’s Digital Project Life Cards

PBALDWIN_DEC31_2015DATESTAMPS_1_DETAILJust do it = my project life plan for this year. Yes, the Nike slogan from 1988.

How I’m going to do it? Mmmm…not sure. Yes, I know we’re 3 weeks into January and I still haven’t decided how I’m going to approach our Project Life album this year. Last year, I tried a loose and relaxed monthly approach and only finished 2 months of the entire album. And all those photos I took last year? Still living on my computer. That was one of the whole reasons I started Project Life (4 years ago) in the first place!! Because I didn’t want my pictures just living on the computer! So this year, I’m going to just do it. Just get it done. Get those pictures printed and stories told.

And to get started with my 2015 album, I’ve got myself a title page! PBALDWIN_DEC31_2015DATESTAMPS_1

I posted a little peek of my title page “in progress” in Instagram last week, and a few people asked if I could put together a tutorial about how I resized Studio Calico’s Digital Project Life cards from the January “Far Far Away” Kit. So as requested, a little video tutorial! The video will walk you through how I made a digital template for my title page, how I resized the PL cards, how you can make the cards with SQUARE corners (!!) and a few tips for how I print my cards at home. If you’re really only interested in getting square corners on those PL cards, skip ahead to about the 12 minute mark 😉 (Please excuse the number of grammatical errors and “umm”s and the fact that I used clipped/clipping/mask interchangeably and completely incorrectly!)

You can also find the video on YouTube here:

I hope you find it helpful, and would love to hear your comments/questions/suggestions for future tutorials 🙂

Good news, bad news…

Good news: My December 2014 album is underway!!! Despite my best intentions of completing this album DURING the month of December, it became quite clear that it just wasn’t going to happen this year. That’s okay though! I took lots of photos and typed up some notes to make sure I didn’t forget the stories I really wanted to remember. So…with my notes and photos ready to go, I’m working on getting some spreads done a few at a time, tackling them in order of whatever happens to be the story I most want to tell at the moment. My first spread tells the story of our very first Kindergarten Christmas Concert, which was incredibly “memorable”. (Yes…quotes are appropriate.) PBALDWIN_DEC10_PROMPTSP1We were all really really excited. It was going so well. Liam was totally into it, which was awesome, because in the past he hasn’t always been a group activity kind of guy. He starred as “Candy Cane #5” for their first act. And for the second act, he found his way to a little opening between kids on stage where he could see us, and danced away, peeking and waving every now and then 🙂 PBALDWIN_DEC10_PROMPTSP2So much fun!

And then…..DISASTER!!

For the final act, all three kindergarten classes performed 2 songs together. The stage was crowded, and Liam was behind another classmate. He wanted to be closer to the front. From where we were sitting, we watched what appeared to be an “unpleasant exchange of words”, followed by some shoving, then screaming, and then it was just way too much for him to handle. He cried for the rest of the performance, right there in the middle of the stage. The little scuffle didn’t last long, but the poor guy was inconsolable. So not only was it his first Christmas Concert, it was also his first (and I pray only) fight at school. Totally broke my heart, especially because he had been having such a good time just moments before. You know that feeling when you just can’t get to your kid fast enough… awful. Anyhow, I was finally able to get to him as he was coming down from the stage for a big hug and some hand holding…and eventually, all was right with the world again.

So CLEARLY, this all needed to be documented.  I’m using Ali Edwards’ December Daily 2014 kit for my album. For this particular spread, I’m also using Ali’s digital “Prompts” stamps in a few spots. I printed the “Remember” & “This” stamps on a 3×4 piece of vellum and embellished it with some of the kit contents to make the title card. PBALDWIN_DEC10_PROPMPTS_DETAIL1I also threaded some of the hand-written words from the stamp set into my journaling (both front and back) for something a little different. And on the second page, I added the big “LOVE THIS” digital stamp directly to the photo before printing it. PBALDWIN_DEC10_PROMPTS_DETAIL2

Now for the bad news…3 spreads in and my printer just died. HA! I sure am hoping to have a solution for that very very quickly…and my handy tech savy hubby is working on it. I’ll keep you posted.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! (And just a quick note to mention that those children have ADORABLE little faces, that I’ve blurred out for their privacy 😉 )

For the love of word bubbles…

PBALDWIN_DEC3_STORYBUBBLES_DETAILI’ve got 2 new scrapbook layouts this week featuring Ali Edwards’ digital “Story Bubbles”. AEdwards_StoryBubbles_PREVThe first one was a long time in the making. I had the story and the photo back in August, but man I struggled trying to figure out what I wanted it to look like. So it sat on my computer….and waited….and sat…..and waited some more. Then…Santa signed me up for a subscription to Ali’s new Story Kits, and the classroom (included with any of Ali’s subscriptions) went live just this past Monday (so SO GOOD!). I listened to the “welcome” presentation and it snapped me right back into focus. It was EXACTLY the reminder I needed that what’s important here is the story. PBALDWIN_DEC3_STORYBUBBLESI remember this day so clearly. Liam had a new Spider Man costume that he wanted to wear EVERYWHERE. And you’re only 4 once, so why not, right? On this particular day, we woke up to news that my dad had been taken to the hospital with some not so fun and very unexpected cardiac issues. So when we got the okay to come for a visit, Liam wore his costume. As we walked through the ER, he made EVERYONE smile. And in that moment, I knew for sure, the best part about being a mom is watching the joy your kids bring to others, even in difficult situations. It happened again just the other day! Emily and I were waiting in a long line at the post office, a situation that doesn’t always bring out the best in people. And as she quietly explored and seemed to be so delighted by this new place, everyone around us started to watch her and couldn’t help but smile. Those moments…that feeling…I want to remember forever.

The secomd layout included a photo that was taken the same day as the first one. PBALDWIN_DEC3_STORYBUBBLES_2We spent our morning running errands and grocery shopping….with Spider Man 🙂 PBALDWIN_DEC3_STORYBUBBLES_2_DETAILAnd word bubbles just make everything more fun!

The supplies for these layouts came from my stash of Studio Calico add-on kits (Clover, Alcott and Ni Hao).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

My whole heart…

PBALDWIN_NOV26_NOVEMBER3X4LAYEREDSENTIMENTS_DETAILNovember 2nd….that was the day I we decided we really needed some new family pictures. It was a BEAUTIFUL sunny Sunday, so we rushed went to the park, with just an hour or so of daylight left. I remember telling myself to “chill out”…don’t worry if this doesn’t work out, just try to enjoy the time together. Of course, I wouldn’t need to be telling myself that if I was actually FEELING that way… but I’m sure you know how it can be, trying to convince little kids that we need to get somewhere to do something on a timeline. Anyhow…the little chat with myself helped. We let the kids run around for a bit and check stuff out. IMG_7105_edited-3These big old doors are pretty awesome, but Liam could NOT understand why they wouldn’t open. IMG_7097_edited-2Found a park bench and attempted to get a decent family shot, which was…..interesting. IMG_7136_edited-1IMG_7150_edited-1IMG_7165_edited-1IMG_7141_edited-2We took a little break from trying to get a family picture, and that’s when this happened. IMG_7103_edited-1My whole heart….right there! I got a lot of good shots, but this one, definitely my favourite!!! Liam liked the cannons. IMG_7206_edited-2IMG_7219_edited-1Emily liked the leaves.IMG_7201_edited-3 IMG_7198_edited-1 IMG_7194_edited-2We paid one more visit to the big brown doors, trying to get a nice photo of Liam, who had a serious case of the sillies.IMG_7241_edited-1silliesIMG_7260_edited-3And then just when I thought we were ready to go home…IMG_7271_edited-2A leaf fight broke out!IMG_7308_edited-3IMG_7311_edited-1 IMG_7310_edited-1IMG_7360_edited-2The sun set and the air got cooler, so we hopped back in the car and went out for dinner 🙂 So SO thankful for this day!IMG_7388_edited-2I wanted to share my favourite photo and the story on a scrapbook layout. When I’ve got a favourite picture, I almost always want to make it BIG and often the focus of my layout. So I went EXTRA big with this one and turned that photo of Brett with the munchkins into a two page spread, with the photo spanning both pages! PBALDWIN_NOV26_NOVEMBER3X4LAYEREDSENTIMENTSI used Studio Calico’s The Underground kit and I made my own embellishments for this layout. PBALDWIN_NOV26_NOVEMBER3X4LAYEREDSENTIMENTS_DETAILThat tag was actually made out of white cardstock, printable adhesive gold foil, and Ali Edwards’ digital overlays “November 3×4 Layered Sentiments”.  I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of gold 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

This is what “happy” looks like…

PBALDWIN_NOV19_NOEL_DETAIL“First we’ll make snow angels for two hours, then we’ll go ice skating, then we’ll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookiedough as fast as we can, and then we’ll snuggle.” – Buddy the Elf

Well we didn’t exactly do allll of that, but the snow angels and the snuggling part did in fact happen! Liam had a PD day from school two weeks ago, and we got the rare opportunity to spend the day together, just the two of us. I feel like I’m not exaggerating when I say “It was the best day ever!”, because seriously, I had so much fun with him! It’s amazing how different the dynamics are with my kids when I spend some good quality one-on-one time with them as opposed us all being together. Maybe because there’s no competition? I don’t know, but what I do know is I WANT TO DO THAT MORE OFTEN!

We went out for breakfast together and did some Christmas shopping and put up Liam’s little Christmas tree.little treelittle tree lights We went to a movie…and the only thing Liam really wanted to do when we were making our plans for the day was “go outside and play in the snow”. snow angelsbest day everSo we did that too!

And that’s how this layout was born.PBALDWIN_NOV19_NOEL

For the happy title, I used a digital brush from Ali Edwards’ “Noel”  stamp set. AEdwards_Noel_PREVI love that they can be used for even non-Christmas themed projects. The rest of the title is done with “Amatic SC” font, which is a freebie at Font Squirrel. (Side note: I came across this font from Rebecca Cooper’s list of “14 Festive Fonts” for the holidays, most of which are free, on her blog! Here’s the link if you’d like to take a look.) I printed it, along with my journaling on white matte photo paper (Staples brand).  I added a bit of stitching over the “THIS” and a few colourful stitched chevrons, just for fun. And those cork asterisks….they’re my FAVOURITE!! And I’m down to just 4 or 5 in my stash, hoping Studio Calico will make more 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by today 🙂

Imperfect and Awesome

digital stampDon’t you just love that? I think this statement sums up my life pretty perfectly… This is from Ali Edwards’ digital stamp set “Get Real” (which also  happens to be the October Stamp set, like real, physical stamp set from the “Story Stamp” subscription). As soon as I saw it, I KNEW exactly which photo I needed to use it with.photoThis photo was taken (during Week in the Life 2010!) when Liam was about 6 weeks old and we were very newbie parents. It’s one of my favourites! I could have told so many different stories related to this photo, and it took me a while to figure out exactly what it was I wanted to say. “Imperfect and Awesome” summed it up really well 🙂 But here’s what I ended up with…PBALDWIN_NOV14_GETREALJust a few thoughts about what life was like as new parents…PBALDWIN_NOV14_GETREAL_DETAILI used the “True Story” and “embrace and celebrate” digital stamps included in the set to make the journaling card in Photoshop Elements. The colours in the recent Studio Calico kits (Walden Scrapbook kit, and Notting Hill add-on kit) were PERFECT for this layout. And of course there’s some little wood veneer hearts in there too 🙂 I tried adding some machine stitching to that grey striped paper to add a bit more texture… (apparently my tension is off and I’m not very confident in my abilities to fix it) it’s definitely imperfect but we’re just going to roll with it since I only had one sheet and embrace it as awesome. Right? 🙂

You might have noticed that my original photo has got a horizontal/landscape orientation without a whole lot of white space to work with but my layout has what appears to be a full page 8.5 x 11 photo.  I made a little video tutorial to share my trick for adding white space to your photos, it makes the perfect home for adding digital stamps and art 🙂

Week in the Life 2014

divider resizedI play along with Ali Edwards’ “Week in the Life” project every year with varying degrees of “success”.  If you’re not familiar with “Week in the Life”, it’s a documentation/memory keeping project that requires you to be intentional about photographing and documenting daily life for 7 consecutive days. Ali describes it so much better than I do. You can read more about the project here and there’s even a video!  When I say varying degrees of success, I should mention that “success” is completely subjective. Some years the outcome is very photo heavy with few words, other years I’ve got lots to say with fewer photos. The process itself can be a lot of work. But every year, I capture some of my favourite photos of all time while participating in “Week in the Life” and it is so WORTH IT 🙂

This year’s week took place October 27th-November 2nd. Heading into this project, I really wanted to focus on 2 things…1) Capturing/telling the stories and 2) Not stressing about it! I love that you can do whatever you need to do to make this project work for you. At the end of the week, the intention is to put together all of this detailed documentation into an album.  So that’s where I’m at right now in the process, and I thought I’d share what I’ve got done so far.MondayA few things about my album: It’s 8.5 x 11, which is what I’ve done for the last 3 years (this year being my 4th). Although the 6 x 8 “handbook” size was REALLY tempting, I like being able to look at several years in one album vs. multiple 6 x 8 albums, so I decided to stick with what works for me. I also decided to challenge myself to use the supplies I’ve already got on hand, and even making a few of my own, as opposed to purchasing a kit this year (but if you think a kit is more your style, definitely check out the one on Ali’s site! There are still some available as I write this post.) So here’s what I’ve got so far…

My transparency lovin’ heart wanted to try something new. dividersI made dividers for each day of the week with clear transparencies + silhouette printable adhesive gold foil + Daily Stories and Photos Word Art (designed in PSE and cut with my silhouette). Once the design had been cut with my silhouette, I removed the excess gold foil from around the design and used a “transfer tape” to get it onto the transparencies. (I have my dad’s brief side business making vinyl signs when I was about 12 years old to thank for that skill 🙂 )That photo above is a peek at my first trial run. I am ridiculously happy with how they turned out and can’t wait to play some more with my December daily album!! open albumFor Monday, I added an index tab to the right edge with the date stamped on it. Pretty sure I’ll continue to do that for each day.

I had the best wake up call from Liam on this Monday morning and it’s the first page of my album (so far).page 1The technical stuff: I love the look of pocket pages, and wanted to work that into my album. But 8.5 x 11 albums don’t really have many pocket style page protector options at the moment (and I wanted to work with my supplies on hand rather than tracking down new ones). So my solution was to customize regular 8.5 x 11 page protectors by sewing them with clear thread to the dimensions that I wanted. It definitely takes some planning, because once you’ve sewn a pocket shut, you can’t get back in there. But I’m quite happy with how they turned out! I believe the dimensions for the first page were 2 – 4 x 5.5 cards on the bottom and 1 – 8.5 x 5 photo on the top (allowing a gap for the stitching).  page 1 journaling and embelliesI made the “Monday” journaling card by customizing the 2014 Week in the Life 8.5 x 11 digital templates in PSE and added a few embellishments with supplies from past Studio Calico kits. You’ll also see throughout my album that I’ve made quite a few of my own embellishments with digital stamps, resized and printed onto matte photo paper! I especially love these “Everyday Boxes” and “Everyday Labels”. On the bottom right, I trimmed down some of the artwork Liam made that morning and mounted it on a piece of patterened paper. (Other products used to create this layout: Studio Calico Wood Veneer stars, black thickers from the Alcott add-on kit, black and white patterned paper from The Underground kit, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher)

The next page is all about Emily in the morning 🙂page 2The technical stuff: Obviously, the dimensions of the left side are the same as they were on the front page 🙂 page 2 leftThe right side is a trimmed down baseball card page 2 rightI bought a package of the Crate Paper Notes and Things Journal Cards a while ago and they are by far my favourite journaling cards to date. I love them so much that I’m tempted to by another package for hoarding purposes. Some of the cards have elements actually stitched on rather than just a picture that looks like it has stitching on 2 right title I used that as inspiration to modify some of the cards for a similar style. Products used: Ali Edwards Digital Word Art “Everyday Boxes” and “Everyday Labels“, Studio Calico Color Theory Chipboard Hearts (Pink), letter patterned paper from Dickenson add-on kit, black and white patterned paper from The Underground kit, Studio Calico Printable labels, Crate Paper Notes and Things Journaling Cards, Crate Paper Notes and Things Sticker Sheet,  Walden Add-on patterned paper, baseball card page protector.

Continuing on with our day…Monday’s aren’t normally a work day for me, which means that Emily and I take Liam to school in the morning and then we get to spend the day together! I wrote a little bit about all her new accomplishments and how darn quickly she’s growing up!page 3The technical stuff: The left side is a trimmed down baseball card page protector. page 3 leftThe right side is a hybrid scrapbook layout based on a digital template by Shanna Noel at Studio Calico. (Unfortunately that template is not currently available, but keep an eye out over the Thanksgiving Weekend and Cyber Monday…past digital products might be re-released for a limited time!).page 3 rightProducts used: Crate Paper Notes and Things Journal cards, Studio Calico Color Theory Chipboard Hearts (pink), Crate Paper Notes and Things Tags (Dickenson add-on), The Underground Scrapbook Kit (Studio Calico), Walden Add-on patterned paper, Studio Calico Wood Veneer Hearts.

More about what our days at home look like. page 4 The technical stuff: I started off this page (left side) with one of the digital templates from the 2014 Week in the Life 8.5 x 11 digital templates, and it kind of evolved into something completely different! page 4 leftI made my own patterned paper by creating  canvas in PSE and using the “What Today Looked Like” digital stamps, then printing it onto white cardstock. I repeated the same “Home Life” sentiment at the top of my photo strip but digitally erased the “O” and replaced it with a gold chipboard geotag. page 4 left titleThat tag is actually from Shanna’s digital template that I mentioned above, printed onto matte photo paper. On the right side, I made another custom sized insert and typed my journaling right onto the photo before printing it out. page 4 rightThe dimensions of these cards are 5″ x 6″. The top card is made from the “Everday Boxes” digital stamp (I erased the box around the outside of the sentiment but kept the lines), printed onto matte photo paper with a few embellishments. page 4 right titleI also included an index tab on the right side of the insert, a technique that I’ve often seen Ali do that I love. Other products used: that skinny red and white striped washi tape is from the Bluegrass Farm Project Life Kit, Days of the Week mini clothes pins by Studio Calico

The next page is the back side of the insert, telling the story of what happens when Liam gets home from school, and what our evening looks like. page 5The technical stuff: Digital word art (“What Today Looked Like“) and journaling directly onto the photos on the left side (the insert). I’ve also got a few small word strips from a piece of patterned paper (Crate Paper Notes and Things – Memo) that I’ve adhered with foam pop dots to add some dimension.  page 5 leftOn the right side of this spread, I made another hybrid layout using a template from the 2014 Week in the Life 8.5 x 11 digital templates as my starting point. I typed up my journaling on the top and included some word art from the “Stories of Life” set for a little 5 right Other products used: “Hola” Scrapbook add-on kit, Bluegrass Farm Project Life Kit

And last but not least, bedtime stories. page 6This is a full page 8.5 x 11 photo printed at home with some digital word art (Prompts digital), a printed sentiment (from “Everyday Labels“) and one sweet little acrylic star.

So that’s what our Mondays look like right now!
