All Natural by Erin Aumack
We spent a weekend in Radium, BC, in early April. And I went to Scrappy-Do's in Invermere. It's a cute little scrap store with tons of awesome ideas. This was one of them. So thanks, Scrappy-Do's, for the inspiration!
Recipe: Patterned paper, butterfly transparencies, title ~ My Minds Eye; Cardstock and alpha rub-ons and ink ~ CTMH; Paper flowers ~ Prima; Flower centers (brads and metal charms ) ~ Imaginisce; blue sparkles and laser diecuts ~ unknown.
New Bed by Erin Aumack
Putting our baby in a big girl bed was a big step, but she loved it! And I love this Fancy Pants paper, Little Sprout. I love the monkeys and the colors, and how it works for boys and girls.
Recipe: Patterned paper, journaling spot ~ Fancy Pants; letter stickers ~ Thickers by American Crafts; Rhinestone brads ~ Making Memories; Bingo card ~ Jenni Bowlin Studio; zig writer pen.
So Patient by Erin Aumack.
I can't believe how patient our dog is. She let Emilie poke her eyes for a good half hour without growling, snapping or even moving. Lily loves her people, even when they are annoying!
Recipe: Patterned paper ~ My Minds Eye; Vellum shapes ~ Making Memories; letter stickers ~ Thickers by American Crafts.
On A Jet Plane by Erin Aumack.
Inspired by the song sung by Chantal Kreviazuk, I took photos while we were flying to Victoria, BC. The kids were so excited, and we had so much fun. I really like how the paper works with my photos, sometimes it doesn't work out that great, but this time it did!

A Snowy Day by Erin Aumack
This layout features some really really old stuff that I had...so it counts for the March challenge of using something really old. I bought these metal plates from Making Memories because I totally loved them, but I hadn't used them yet (i've been stashing them for about 2 years...) and they fit perfectly in with my theme.

One Day New by Erin Aumack.
I really love this one. Even though the photo of Emilie is blurry, it really shows what it was like on that first day. Some of the photos are from when she was a couple days old, but it fits.
She was new.

Day Out with Thomas by Erin Aumack
Another great thing about Studio J is that you can use papers from CTMH that are retired, like this Rough n Tumble kit. I love how the colors matched perfectly with my photos of our family visiting with Thomas the Tank.

Home Sweet Home by Erin Aumack.
I love the fact that I can use older pictures with Studio J. These photos were taken of our very first house in Calgary by the realtor for the brochure. It's probably the only time it was ever this tidy! But I'm glad to scrap it, because it was where we started from.

Fun by Erin Aumack.
This layout is using the new Studio J software available by Close to My Heart. I love it, because I can crank out layouts in a shorter amount of time, and have them fit in my albums alongside the tradtitional ones. Stay tuned for more use of this great product!
