Welcome to the Studio Calico Blog Blitz! It's always fun to share the creations that we worked on for the CHA booth and we are doing just that today! I am excited about so many of the new products from this release and I haven't even seen everything in person yet so it is fun to see all of the layouts up close! After you enter the giveaway below be sure to go to the Studio Calico blog and click through to see the other designers' layouts and projects as well!! They are all doing giveaways too so you have lots of chances to win some of the products before you can even buy them!

This first layout showcases the new Butterfly masks, which I am in LOVE with!! These will get a lot of use from me I am sure!! I also used the new Mister Huey's Shine mist which is the perfect shade of silvery glimmery mist! LOVE!

The next one uses the same Butterfly masks but in a different way. A lot of people at the show asked how this was done…. After misting over the masks (for the above page) I carefully lifted them up, turned them over and then "stamped" them onto this next page. The trick was that I had a LOT of mist on the masks and I also pressed them down carefully so the mist would spread to all of the edges before lifting them off. The result is this fun watercolor stamped look and I love it!!

This page showcases the new bookplate stickers. I am also loving the new tissue trims, which I misted here and then sewed to the page (over on the left).

And finally this one which shows off bits of a lot of things – the new chipboard butterflies, the papers and then the wood veneer banner pieces…. swoon!! They take mist very well (which is what I did here) and I love that the wood grain still shows through!
