We (the Studio Calico Design Team) are doing a blog hop and a giveaway that I think you will LOVE!!

This month, for the first time ever, we all did a layout using only the Main Kit Field Guide! Typically I throw everything together and mix it all up so it was a bit different for me but it was a fun challenge…….. a challenge that wasn't actually a challenge at all because each kit is designed so that you can use it by itself and you really don't need anything else!!

Here is the kit…..

SC Oct 2011 Main (2 of 2)

I already ranted and raved about the SC exclusives that are in this kit… the butterflies, the paper, the journaling die cuts, the stamps…. oh my!!

Here is my layout again that I did using only the main kit:


and a close up:


I journaled on one of the die cuts and then I misted on another one to use it as more of an accent piece.

What I love about the fact that we all created a layout using only this kit? It really shows how versatile these kits are!! It amazes me how many different layouts can come from the same set of products and how you can come up with lots of different things by simply using a little creativity in putting it all together!

The best part about this Blog Hop??? The GIVEAWAY! We are ALL giving away this kit!!! Yes, that is right, we are each giving away the October Main Kit – Field Guide!! To enter, you need to leave a comment here on this blog post and then I will be back on Monday to draw a winner at random.

You can (and SHOULD) go to the Studio Calico blog to hop/link to all of the other designer's blogs where you will be able to see their layouts that they did using ONLY the main kit and to enter their giveaways as well!! Yes, you can enter to win on all of our blogs which means you have lots of chances at winning! 

The fine print: you can only win once so if you win on more than one blog, we will choose another winner. The prize is the October Main Kit…. if you are already a subscriber or you already purchased this kit, then you will still win this kit. You will not be able to swap it out for a different kit. For me it would actually be a bonus to get this kit even if I already had it because I love the SC exclusives sooooo much and after the kit is gone, those products are gone too!

Good luck!!!!!!!
