Scrapbooking: Studio Calico September Layouts

The September Studio Calico Scrapbooking Kits definitely have a "back-to-school" vibe for me so I went with it and did 3 layouts with that theme! I haven't even printed my kids' back to school pics from this year yet but I had some instagrams that I printed through postalpix from last year that were ready and waiting to be scrapped! 

First up is Nathan's page:

I used the Main Kit only on this one. I really love the exclusive SC papers this month and especially this one that I used above with the handwriting guide on it. 

Next up is Matthew's page:

Sept2012layouts (9 of 22)

I am obsessed with the gold star trim that is in the Captial Avenue add on kit. I could hang that all around my house and use it on every single scrapbook page! It just makes me happy and works so well in strips or cut up into individual stars!

Finally we have Tyler's page:

Sept2012layouts (10 of 22)

Really loved the "you are here" piece and the orange tag from the Style Guide add on kit and knew I had to use them on a layout!

I did some misting as per usual and used the color Passport on the mistable arrows. I used the color Taxi on the big number on Tyler's layout. On the big number on Matthew's layout I used the color Leaf Green. I thought those numbers were super cute but ended up needing to mist both of them so they would stand out and "pop" on my pages. 

I also created a whopping 7 cards this month with the rest of my kits!

I am getting more and more into making these cards lately! You can see all of the cards I made for this month in my gallery on the Studio Calico site. Also did you know that the new site allows us to link related products that we used for each layout/card? You can see right there which inks, mists, etc I used for each project! Pretty cool!

Also I have a fun little announcement: 

I am going to start doing a giveaway each month in relation to these kits. No matter how hard I try I just can't use all of the fabulous goodies that are packed in the kits. Sometimes certain products don't go with the pictures I have chosen (even though I love them and wish they did) and other times I just simply can't make enough pages or cards to use up all of the cuteness!

And soooooo, I am going to start doing a giveaway EACH MONTH after I post my projects. The prize will vary from month to month and will consist of some of the products that I have left over. Sometimes the winner will get paper, other times there will be only embellishments but most times it will probably be a mix. I know it is not a big huge grand prize but I think it will be fun and it will give those of you that don't get all of the kits (or any of the kits) to have a chance at winning a sampling of the fabulous products I get to create with each month. It is my way to share some love each month with all of you!  

To enter, leave a comment here on this post. I will be back to draw a winner at random on Monday!

Please Note::: Because of the cost of shipping I can only offer this giveaway to those in the US. I feel so sad that I have to exclude some of you but the cost to ship the items would likely be more than they are worth and since these giveaways are not sponsored by a company, the cost is coming out of my pocket. If, however you are willing to pay the excess shipping fees over and above what they would be in the US, then you are welcome to enter. Please note in your comment that you are international but that you are willing to pay the extra costs.


Also, plan on seeing lots more of me here on the blog from now on! I have lots going on that I plan to share with you and some fun things coming up in the near future!!
