Featuring Studio Calico │ March Bookmarked Kits

The Studio Calico Bookmarked kits just went live this past Thursday so I wanted to share the three projects I made. The stamps this month were out of this world and I used two sets to make Travelers Notebook spreads and I just love both of them. Both stamp sets were designed by LifeLovePaper so its no surprise I loved them.

First up is a Documenter spread I made using just the main kit. I did use some of the stamps digitally but the embellishments and cards were just from the kit.

I loved the way the title card turned out. I cut the A from one of the 4x6 cards and paired it with some digitals of another 3x4 card in the kit.

The floral card in the lower left corner was another favorite. I fussy cut the word strips out of one of the journaling cards.

My first Travelers Notebook spread was made using the TV stamp set from LifeLovePaper. Man I loved how this turned out. This stamp set is the bomb!! I had so much fun documenting some of the shows I was watching in February.

Tiny photos get me every time!! And that streaming symbol with the curved text!!! LOVE!!

I made a second Travelers Notebook spread using the 6x8 Stamp Subscription and that stamp set was also designed by LifeLovePaper. I loved the journaling card stamp and used it to create windows across the spread. I filled the one with the photo and the other with some text. I love how this spread turned out. And I love my Plum Blossom tree when it blooms pink.

I masked off the journal spots when I added in the flowers so it looked like they were tucked behind.

I loved these kits and these stamps!

See you soon,

Featuring Studio Calico │ February Candyland Kits

I was just sitting down to share the latest projects I made for Studio Calico and I realized I never posted last months projects. So today I'm here to share what I made using the Candyland kits.

The first project is a Documenter spread using the Candyland Documenter kit.This kit had a lot of Valentine appropriate cards in it that I will use when I make my February pages but I'm still working on spreads from last year so this kit totally worked great for some Springtime photos.

I loved this pattern paper and used it digitally here to create a card for my title slot.

There was a card set called Lazy Days and the Recharge card came from that set. I loved the rainbow colors of this card.

I loved the watercolor card as well and used it to tell a story about all the rain we were getting.

I made a Travelers Notebook spread using the Welcome Home Stamp Subscription. I used the flowers to create the background and I loved how bold these flower stamps were.

I made a second Travelers Notebook spread using the 6x8 Pattern Builder Stamp Set. I loved the xoxo stamp and used three of the stamps to make layered dimensional hearts. I really love how this spread turned out.

The last project I made was for a Sunday Sketch challenge. You can see the challenge in this blog post. I used a photo my friend DeAnna took of my daughter at our recent family photo session. I loved the sketch and I had a lot of fun creating this layout.

It was a really fun month of projects.

See you soon,
