The September kit at SC is live (for subscribers… non subbers can purchase at midnight tonight!)! I used the main scrapbooking kit, the main Project Life kit, and two scrapbook add ons: Sprinkles and Licorice. Be sure to check out the other add ons… especially the PL card ones. I wish I had ordered some of those!
Yorktown: This is my main kit only layout this month. To be honest… I re-did it a couple times and still couldn’t get it quite right. Sigh. I love the frame patterned paper though and the colors in that ombre paper I backed them with.
Be True, Be You: I LOVE the Lindsay Letters stamp in the Cotton Candy Stamp Add On. It’s just gorgeous! I used the diamond outline stamp here on various patterned papers to make my own background design.
Boo: Each time SC offers a Halloween themed add on, I grab it! I just think Halloween stuff is so fun! I used the letter cut files with my Silhouette to create the large title and then filled in the “o”s with pics.
Happy Halloween: Another Halloween page, this time using Catherine’s awesome template. Love how you just drop your photo in and it looks fabulous! I added some of the vellum tape and that super fun alpha roller stamp from the PL kit.
Have a great day!
It’s time to reveal the newest collections from Studio Calico at the trade show in Las Vegas! Always such a fun time in the crafting world…and so wish I was there in person and not just represented in paper. 😉 Oh well… at least I was able to enjoy working with two of the new lines last week!
This is MAGICAL! It seems lots of manufacturers release a holiday themed line at the summer show, so what makes SC’s special? I think the color combo is fun with grey and pale blue mixed in. And my favorite item of this line is the kraft tag pack. I used those tags on all my pages…including the non-Christmas ones! Love them! Here’s the booth sample page I created with Magical:
Hard to remember my littlest being that little! 🙂
And speaking of little ones… STORY TIME is going to be a must have collection for anyone scrapbooking baby’s first year or really any sweet childhood memories. I created one baby page with it and one more generic “kid” page.
Check both lines out in the shop! 🙂
Checking in from vacation to quickly post my pages for the month! This month’s kit is called Valley High… and I got the Jennifer and Molly add ons as well as the Project Life Kit. Doesn’t this kit just scream summer?! 🙂
This month I picked up the main kit, Front Row, along with Big Screen, Matinee, and the Project Life kit. I think my favorite was a tie between Matinee and the PL kit. The cards in the PL kit are just so cute this month! I actually used them on one of my 12×12 layouts because I just couldn’t wait until I got around to my monthly PL spread. 🙂 This first sneak is from my “main kit only” page:
This page has a couple of those fab cards from the PL kit. Rocket ship cut with my Cameo:
so many things! 🙂 We have a tradition at my parents’ house of going around the table and sharing our “3 thankfuls” as we enjoy our Thanksgiving feast. I remember when I was young that it was sometimes sort of hard to come up with three different things to share. Now I find it hard to list ONLY 3 things. I am feeling so very blessed. One of those many things I am thankful for… scrapbooking. It sounds cheesy perhaps, but this hobby has opened many opportunities and friendships for me and for that I am thankful. Speaking of scrapbooking, who would like some early sneaks of 34th Street, the SC December kit?! I worked with the main kit, Penn Station, and Kris Kringle (my fave!) I also used many of the digi items in the shop and my beloved Cameo machine. Seriously…if you are looking for a Christmas gift idea… this would be a fabulous one!
Thanks for stopping by for today’s Darling Dear Blog Hop! Studio Calico’s newest collection is just gorgeous and we thought it’d be fun to celebrate its arrival with a blog party. 🙂 Make sure to check out the SC blog for a list of all the participants on the hop AND get some inspirational pdf’s and digital goodies that coordinate!
