Marinated Tri-tip

We recently visited the newly remodeled Phoenix (43rd Ave and McDowell) Smart & Final store (that has been turned into an "Extra" store) to see all the changes they made.

This store now has more bulk foods, whole foods, gravity bins for grains, nut and healthy snacks - overall just more! They had a lot going on while we were there and it was obvious people were excited about the remodel.

We bought some ingredients to create one of our favorite BBQ recipes on an often looked over cut of meat - tri-tip. Ideally you'd let this marinade overnight for the best results but at least give it a couple of hours.

Easy Digital Stamp Overlay Technique

Easy Digital Stamp Overlay Technique

I use this little "trick" often with digital stamps for photos in my Project Life spreads or scrapbooking pages. It's just a simple way to include a digital stamp with a different look.

I used the Studio Calico Poet Society Scrapbook Stamps for the overlay in the video. I love the digital stamps because you can purchase all of them even if you didn't get to shop for the kits in time.

You can see more details of the spread in the video and the other spread I made this month in my Studio Calico creative team gallery.

Let me know if you have any questions or have any requests for future videos!

Poets Society Sneaks

Amazing that the name for this month's Studio Calico kits was planned well in advance. Such a beautiful tribute to the man who starred in the film isn't it? We watched it with the boys this week.

Here are some sneaks from my spreads this month. The cards, stamps and embellishments are all SO good.

Here's a behind the scenes shot of me photographing my spreads this week. As much as it looks like he's helping I believe he was whining to me about something his brother did and 2 seconds after this the dogs ran across and spread the cards everywhere. Real life.

Reveal is tomorrow!
