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!
