Member Spotlight | erintaylor718

This month, get to know Studio Calico member Erin Taylor (erintaylor718). Erin is a mom and full-time student in Florida. Learn more about Erin and her style below!

I am the mom of two wonderful boys, Evan, and Jack, and a substitute teacher at their classical academy. I'm also a full time student working towards my Business Administration degree. When I'm not running the boys to activities or doing homework I love to work in my studio on scrapbook pages, cards, or editing photos.

SC Member since:

I'm not sure the exact date but I've been a member since the Central High Card kit!

All-time favorite past kit or collection:

This is so hard! So many kits inspire me. I loved the Arendal scrapbook kit. My favorite card kit will always be Cirque! I loved the chipboard hearts in that kit, and the stamp set is adorable.

What do you do when your kit comes?

I am usually heading out the door when UPS drops it off so I don't have a chance to look through it until after the kids go to bed. I like to open the scrapbook kit first, then any shop purchases and the Documentor kit.

What's your go-to technique?

White backgrounds, grid pattern, mixing color and B&W photos, simple titles, clean and simple design.

What are your top 5 products?

This is so hard! I love tags, chipboard frames, alpha stickers, labels, and washi tape.

Where do you go when your mojo is low?

Galleries! I browse the gallery here or do a Google search for scrapbook layouts. I also pull out a kit and challenge myself to only work with that kit. Sometimes I'll scrap lift from the gallery or one of my favorite designers. There is so much inspiration out there!

    Your layouts and cards are so creative! I can especially relate to the Storm LO, as I am in central Florida. I expect a storm to roll through every day around 5 p,m, all summer long.
