pocket starts by tickled pink studio // EXPLORE

EXPLORE. what a perfect action word! do you like to explore and see new places?

i’m a creature of habit and tend to not stray too far from my comfort zone. but last month, i took my 13 year old son on a trip from california to arizona to visit my parents. we had a super fun time riding ATVs in the desert and visiting cool towns and seeing all kinds of different scenery. along with that came a hundred and one photos that needed to be scrapped.

i pondered how to approach the week in my album and then Tickled Pink Studio announced to use on the DT the next theme of the Pocket Starts series was going to be EXPLORE and i was convinced she designed this kit specifically for my trip. LOL! she didn’t, obviously, but it was just so perfect.

Pocket Starts: Explore Edition Complete Collection by Tickled Pink Studio

the new kit released on friday and i’m here to show you my finished projects. and guess what? i did a quick flip-thru of the final pages. please excuse my rushed flow, i had a puppy staring at me from the door and my little dude was on his way home from a fun day with grama.

but please enjoy the following video and see detailed photos below. you know the drill.

pocket starts by tickled pink studio // FLOURISH

say hello to FLOURISH: a brand new pocket starts kit by Tickled Pink Studio. available now at Sweet Shoppe Designs!

are you a digi/hybrid pro or a little nervous about what to do with a digi kit?


a digital kit can be turned into physical product like magic. you just need a printer (or a local print shop). an electronic cutting machine (like a silhouette) is handy, but not necessary at all.


the flourish collection is all about growth and personal reflection. it’s an opportunity to document you and those people and things you love.

scrap space tour // 2015

my little scrap space has seen many revisions over the years.

in our smaller house, i made our front closet into my own little space



then i got brave and made an entire wall in our garage.


then we moved to a house with some more elbow room and i now have a fun little corner to call my own.


since moving in almost 2 years ago, my corner has been through a few minor makeovers. to see the latest transformation, i put together a quick little video tour of how i store and organize my goodies.


i hope you enjoy!


happy scrapping!
