My Family

After I printed this picture of me, my cousins and my aunt, I knew it needed its own page! My cousin from Colorado and I (from Rochester, NY) went to stay with our other cousin from Indiana - all our parents were/are siblings and grew up in Indy. This is my awesome family!!

I used the Central High kit from Studio Calico for this, which had lots of fun little embellishments in it! The only piece not from the kit is the washi tape, which I bought separately.

I just used glossy accents to adhere the sequins in place and sewed together across the washi tape and paper pieces. I decided to use that cute little piece of Kraft paper, and then just tried to add a bunch of colors to it!

  • I used the Central High kit by Studio Calico and the main piece of background paper is called "Around Town" from the Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go collection by American Crafts
  • The sequins and the orange shipping tag are from Studio Calico
  • The green striped piece is the leftover paper from my last layout, called Leaf Large Dot from the Dots & Stripes collection by Echo Park Paper Co
  • I can't enough of that multi-colored stripes paper, which is a Tim & Beck exclusive for Studio Calico
  • The washi tape is from Freckled Fawn, as I got towards the right side, I overlapped it, then sewed down the middle with a neon green thread to match the neon green stripe on my jacket in the picture
  • The triangles stamp is also from Studio Calico, stamped first in neon orange then used the outline triangle in wet cement ink both by Hero Arts
  • The "my" part of the title are Blue mini alpha by Basic Grey
  • The "Family" part of the title are Everyday printed chipboard thickers by American Crafts
  • Amidst the sequins I added 3 of those little Amy Tan Cute Overload Tiny Matte Puffy Accents by American Crafts
  • The hearts are also from the same collection, called stitched vellum embellishments


  1. Oooh, I LOVE the little string of hearts down the side - they complement the other accents perfectly!

    1. Thanks Miss Smith!! American Crafts really made that one a no-brainer for me :)
