Studio Calico May Kit Layouts

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!

My favorite journaling pens are here and here.

A few more cards for you as well that I made with leftover scraps and with the stamp from the Leica Add On.

    You are absolutely amazing. What a surprise to check your blog and see our fun pics from your visit to Texas. Love and miss you so much, my friend. I can’t wait to see you in a few months! Can you say counting down the days? 🙂 xoxo

    Funny that you thought the hexagons were not ‘you’. I saw your pages and recognized that as yours but did notice that they were a bit different than usual. I love the mix of colour and black on your first page, and the bird stamp is adorable.
    I think you did a great job branching out but still keeping the essence of your style!

    Hi Maggie
    Love all your work!
    Could you tell me who makes that Grey patterned paper with the hearts. You used it on the I am thankful for you page. I need to ad it to my list 😉
    Thank you!
