Studio Calico Sugar Rush - Full Reveal and some layouts too!

Today is the day! The full reveal of the Studio Calico Sugar Rush kits!  They are so unbelievably awesome this month and here is what I made with them.

Note: all links below will be live at Noon EST today January 27 for subscribers and Midnight tonight for non-subscribers.

My Project Life® 2014 Title Page


I went with a Design G Protector and kept it really simple.  I loved the house card and the I'll be Yours card and thought the pink and grey colors worked well with my photos.  I ended up making one a flip up so I could add a bit more text.  The gold accents in the main kits and the Cherry Sours add-on were a must use here for me.  I love any type of gold accent so these were right up my alley.

Here is a look at the flip up



And this adorable house card paired with the vellum alpha in the main kit, these will all get used for sure.


My Main Kit only layout was my week one.  Since the week was short having an abbreviated space worked well since I didn't have a ton of photos to work with.  The pie chart cards were top of my list of favorites this month and they worked perfectly for a way to show my goals for the year. I added the second just to have some fun and asked Simone what her goals for the year were.  These are her actual answers just so you know, I did not make this up for her.


I was asked to do a tutorial on how I print my journaling directly on the cards and will get something put together very soon for you all.  The crown card came plain and I added the quote myself and the gold heart is on the outside of the page protector.


The chipboard accents sheet in the main was amazing. I used so much of it this month and really hope more of these are made for us in future kits.



The wood veneer was great, these x and o's were the middle pieces of a larger piece and I love that we get both the positive and the negative pieces.



I had enough time to put together another spread and this is week two. This spread is a combination of the Main Kit the Cherry Sours and Ring Pop add-ons and the 4x6 paper pad.


I loved the black and white cards that came in the main kit and used one here for a day that I drove in to meet my friend Kari. Having the top space for my journaling was perfect.



There were so many sweet cards in the kits and the to do card was just adorable. I had some fun with it and added the last two lines of journaling myself.


Loved that little Amy Tangerine camera and the tiny word stickers.


The title card is digital using one of the digital stamps from this months add on stamp set.


I absolutely loved the printables that Shanna Noel designed and turned one into a digital element to lay on top of my photo instead of using it as a printable. I absolutely love this piece.


That wasn't where my creative spurt ended this month and I actually made two layouts to share as well.

This first one was done simply because I absolutely loved the stamps that Tina Aszmus created for the Card Kit this month so I had to make something with them.  I loved the sentiment, I loved the little girl and I loved the crown.  I bought the card kit this month because I had to own those sweet stamps, I know they will get used a lot by myself and Simone plus the rest of the kit is just awesome!



I cut several pieces of the stamp out on POW blossom paper and the crown was cut with the POW gold paper.


The journaling was typed and another little gold chipboard heart placed as an accent.





I'm currently in a debate with my daughter on where this will be kept, in her album or in her room.  We shall see who wins.

My second layout was done quickly and also done on my wedding anniversary this past week.  There are a few new sets of craft dies in the shop today and this page uses two of the new dies.  The arrows which is an awesome set for Project Life® because the negative can be used for journaling and the confetti die is the perfect way to quickly make some confetti without punching with a hand punch.

I placed a few of the arrows under a piece I cut on my Cameo to draw attention to the photo and scattered the confetti along with some heart cuts that I made with the hearts from this months digital template.



Wow, what a month!  As you can see the kits are jam packed and I had a great time working with them.  Don't forget to check out the Design Team Gallery, the projects this month are amazing!

See you soon!
