My Studio Calico layouts came together really easily for me this month. Once I got going, I found the mix of products super inspiring….. which always makes the creative process move along quickly!
One thing I definitely fell in love with this month, which I haven't really played with much yet, is the HEXAGON! I know that Studio Calico has had hexagon type products for quite a while now and for some reason I have just shyed away from them. They didn't feel like "me." In the main kit there is lots of hexagon paper, hexagon mistable stickers and then a hexagon stamp and they all coordinate and fit perfectly together so I decided to play around with them and give it a shot! Well I was instantly hooked and went on to do 2 more layouts with hexagons and a card too!!
You will not be disappointed in the main kit, that's for sure!
Another thing I fell in love with once I started making my cards is the stamp set in the Brownie Add On. They are 4 different stamps and the "hello there" one is just perfect for making quick, easy cards that you could use for anything!!
And next up we have BANNERS, which I still do and will always LOVE!
The Heidi Swapp mistable banners in the Lomography Add On are super fun to work with because you can mist or ink them to turn them any color and the pattern on each one is a resist so it stays white! Then the Dear Lizzy premade mini banner in the Holga Add On is just plain cute!
Some shop items you might be interested in that I used for misting and stamping:
A few more cards for you as well that I made with leftover scraps and with the stamp from the Leica Add On.
Let me know if you have any questions on my layouts or the techniques!
