Studio Calico – Baker’s Dozen

Well I am a little late in posting about this month's Studio Calico kits because all of them have already sold out…. (I think some of them even sold out that night)  :( But, if you love the exclusive SC paper for this month as much as I do, you can still get your hands on some of that… link is here. I am in love with these doilie garlands! They are simply divine!!


In case you did get your hands on one or more of these kits, be sure to check out the gallery — so much fabulous inspiration from the other gals in there… including our guest designer Robyn Werlich. I have known her for years and years and I adore what she did with the kits! I also adore her too! 🙂

Here are my layouts with links to products/tools that I used (that are not included in the kits). As always, if you have any questions about anything, let me know and I am more than happy to answer!

First up is "Us". I adore this photo of me and Emily Jane for lots of reasons… in fact it just brings so many emotions up that I get sort of choked up and can't seem to even make sense of my thoughts or feelings. I had so many things that I wanted to try to say and write but in the end I decided to just leave it unspoken….. in fact, this is why I love photography so much! Sometimes there just aren't the right words and I love that the photo can do the speaking for me! (Thanks to my sweet friend Megan for capturing this candid shot of us when she and I were out playing around with our cameras one day.)

Anyway, I used the Silver Plated mist here and the Hydrangea Blue mist. Also used that doilie garland SC paper that is still available! I will be stocking up on this one for sure! 🙂



Next up is "Signs of Summer". This really makes me excited for summer to be here again! Both of these photos were taken at swimming lessons — somewhere that we spend a lot of our time! I used the Silver Plated mist again (linked above) and also the Cream mist. (As a sidenote – I wasn't quite sure what I would do with the cream mist since I love color but I have found that I use it more than any of my other mists! I love the fact that it tones down my bright colored backgrounds a bit and adds just a bit of texture/interest without being too dramatic.) It may be a little hard to tell but I also misted the small yellow alphabet sheet (that I used for the title and the strip at the bottom) with the Fern Green mist. I felt like the yellow letters didn't stand out enough on my page so I added the green mist to give them some punch!


Used the Silver Plated again on this one (am I sensing a new favorite here??) along with the Dark Cornflower Blue mist. I sprayed the blue first and felt like it was a bit strong so I sprayed the Silver Plated over the top to tone it down a little. (I do the same thing with the Cream mist too sometimes.) I also used one of my new favorite border punches on this layout – It's this crown punch from Martha Stewart. love the detail!



Finally my last page for this month… another one about me that I did just for fun…. using another picture from my trip to Cali to teach at the Reflections Event last year. (btw… I will be back again this year and can't wait!! more info on that later) Surprisingly I refrained and didn't use any mist on this one! 🙂 I used the doilie garland SC paper again and I also used this new butterfly punch that I can't get enough of along with this one too.


That wraps up another fab SC kit! Apparently you all loved the kits as well because you scooped them up so quickly! I have to run get the boys from school…. or "go gigi boys" as Emily says! Happy Tuesday!

    so cute. as always. love all the colors. and the tidbits. you’ve really helped teach me how to make use of all my scrap pieces. i was just wondering about the heart pieces you used on the “us” layout. the tape piece (at least i think it’s tape) and the heart keylock. i can’t seem to find them as part of any SC kit. then again, maybe i’m not looking hard enough.

    It’s beginning to annoy me that your misting always looks so great and mine just looks like I let my two year old loose with paint. 🙂 Is there a secret to it that I’m not getting? Really, your layouts look fab!
