studio calico handbook with atlantic

I have many years of unscrapped memories since I quit scrapbooking for an 11 year period (my about me section explains why). Since I only have a few layouts from the years when Alec and Mason were little, I decided to start a handbook to document those years. I'm going in random order and just working on it as I have time. The Atlantic collection from Studio Calico is so lovely with its soft colors paired with navy and fun embellishments like cork arrows and vellum die cuts.

Here are three handbook spreads I put together recently. It's so much fun working on these pocket pages that are similar to my Project Life spreads, but on a much smaller scale.

Along with Atlantic, I used some of the printables and cut files available in the digital shop at Studio Calico to complement the Atlantic collection.

This one documents a trip down to see Louisiana's only inhabited barrier island, Grand Isle. I love the way the black and white photos complement the soft colors from Atlantic.

Here I documented a trip to the beach back in 2008.

And this one is about some backyard fun. The "hello" is from a cut file available at Studio Calico to complement the Atlantic collection. 

I know the handbook binders are currently sold out at Studio Calico, but new styles are being released soon at winter CHA so stay tuned!
