Studio Calico: May Sneak Peeks

LOVED the May Studio Calcio kits!! Reveal is tonight and I bet the kits will go fast, so be ready! 🙂

The numbers stamp in the Main Kit is sooooo awesome!! I used it on this layout along with the AC Black Glitter Embossing Powder. Also used the alphas from the Main Kit and from Clear Skies – Add On 4. The flags are from the Main Kit and the paper is all from the Main Kit as well.

Here's another sneak using paper and stickers from the Paper Lanterns Kit – 3rd Add On, brads and buttons from Pink Lemonade Kit – 2nd Add On and some of the extras from the shop this month. I'm in love with those Crate Paper chipboard shapes and ordered 2 sets of them because I knew I would want extras!! The alpha is from the Main Kit but I sprayed them with yellow mist before using them.


This one uses trim from the Main Kit and Add On 2, paper, stickers and buttons from Clear Skies – Add On 4 and the Crate chipboard from the shop again.


And last is the one that I did for our "Member Lift" feature. We all chose one of the Studio Calico members to scraplift this month. I chose Jaime Warren — she is amazing!!! You should definitely check out her gallery!!! I do have a funny story about the whole member lift layout………… I left my layouts until the very last minute this month (because I was working on a bunch of things for Creating Keepsakes) and I stayed up super late working on them the night before they were due. Well, I don't stay up late much anymore especially because I am pregnant so I was tired and my feet/ankles/legs were SUPER swollen and hurting, but I knew I had to push through it and get these done. Well after I finished my 3rd layout and was about to head to bed I realized that I FORGOT to do the member lift layout!!!!!!!! A little bit of panic set in especially since I knew there was NO way I could stay up any longer to do it! So anyway, I went to bed and had to get up super early the next morning to finish it before the kids woke up and the next busy day started…… needless to say I did get it done and it actually turned out to be one of my favorites because I loved the inspiration layout so I pretty much lifted the exact design and it also came together quickly! Thanks for the inspiration Jamie!!!

This one uses paper from the Main Kit and Add On 2, stickers from Add On 3, embellishments from Add On 4 and of course the Crate chipboard yet again! 🙂



I guess you could say that they are all pretty much mixes of all 4 kits….. which is typically what I usually do. After I take the kit pictures for the website each month I just mix everything all together and go for it!! It just works better for me that way…. I am not good at keeping the kits separate!

I'll be back to share my full layouts soon… For now get ready so you can be fast and snag the kits you want before they are gone!!

P.S. I am posting that giveaway that I mentioned tomorrow….. so be sure to check back!!
