Hi there! Hope you had a lovely weekend!! I have a fun post to share with you today as part of the #SCInspires Blog Hop and it includes a freebie + some awesome giveaways!!

First up, we are each talking about how SC inspires us, hence the hashtag #SCInspires!

It’s no secret that I have been a Studio Calico fan for many many years now! Not only have I loved working with their kits over the years but I just love the community and sharing aspect about their brand and site. I know that anytime I want some scrapbooking inspiration, I can go to the design team gallery and the member gallery and find LOADS of creative ideas! I always come away wanting to try a new technique or use something new in my crafting.

It’s also inspiring to me each month to see how everyone creates such different things with the same products! I mean, really, isn’t it just super amazing to see such contrasting pages and ideas come out of the use of the same gathering of supplies? It inspires me to continue thinking outside the box and pushing myself to come up with unique ways to use my stash of crafting products!

I love to browse the galleries and I also love to pin my very favorites to my Scrapbooking Inspiration board here on Pinterest. That way I have lots of inspiring ideas all gathered into one place!

Next up, Studio Calico has this darling printable that they are offering as a FREE download! It’s perfect for fall and would make a cute home decor piece if you want to frame it or a cute gift to share as well!
