Hi there! It's been a while! I have been bogged down with a horrible cold that I can't seem to shake! Not fun, but trying to get back into the swing of things!! I meant to post sneaks of my Studio Calico layouts and now here it is after the full reveal…. time flies!!
Anyway, here are my layouts with details on shop items, techniques, etc. As always, if you have any questions about anything give me a shout!!
There were sooooo many cute girly things in the kits this month that I couldn't resist doing all three layouts about Emily! I have especially been anxious to get some of the new Crate Paper lines so I was ecstatic to some of it in the kits and the shop!
First up is "e"……..
This one is pretty simple actually. I didn't do any misting or anything. But I did paint the sticks for the banner (House of 3/Pink Paislee from the main kit) with the JBS Lemon Drops paint dabber and I rubbed some of the JBS Chewing Gum paint into the grooves on the metal piece at the top of the banner — just to give it some more dimension and to make the pattern on the metal stand out more.
Next up is "baby doll"…….
I used Maya Road Sunflower Yellow mist and Mister Huey's Lemonade mist on the background because I wanted the yellow to be more bright and vibrant. Neither of those are in the shop at the moment but you may have a similar yellow on hand that would work or check back to see if they will be back in stock later.
I used mostly American Crafts products on this layout…. loved the cute tags from the Make 'Em Laugh add on so I cut the bottoms of the tags in order to create the large banner here. Used the adorable SC flag stamp set from the Moses Supposes add on. And the AC ribbon from the Tap Dance add on. Used the AC Precision Pen for journaling and doodling on all three layouts.
Last is "darling girl"…….
On the background I used Mister Huey's Lemonade mist and then Mister Huey's Calico White mist over the top. Used lots of the Crate Paper products here again because I just can't get enough of them…. including the Emma's Shoppe Trims that are surprisingly still available in the shop. Everything else I used is already sold out! Sorry!! I will be try to be better at posting all of these details earlier next time!
Now I'm off to check out the design team gallery to see what they all did with the kits this month! I'm always so inspired! And my cutest and sweetest friend Suzy Plantamura was our guest designer this month!!!! Love her and can't wait to see her layouts! I heard she did A LOT!! Go Suz!!
