It’s time to reveal the October kit at Studio Calico! This one’s called Antiquary and it really is beautiful. I worked with the main Scrapbook Kit, the Project Life kit, and two add ons – Rome and Amsterdam. I also snagged these PL cards from In A Creative Bubble. They are so cute!
Third Grade: I gave my Silhouette a work out on this one, creating lots of banners to be descriptive for the photo and also part of the design. The floral background paper inspired the stitched flower accents.
Wave Riders: This one uses just the Rome add -on. I love the beautiful colors in this add on!
Happy Thanksgiving: I tried out some chalk art on this chalkboard patterned paper and it worked pretty well. I made a stencil of the “happy” digital stamp brush and another stencil for “thanksgiving” with my Silhouette and then used regular old chalk to fill in the stencil. To seal it a bit so it didn’t rub off, I traced over everything with a white colored pencil. Not sure why that worked, but it did! It doesn’t rub off now! The wreath is also cut from a trace of a digital stamp brush, as are the pumpkins.
You & Me: Love the vellum die cuts and used several of them here. And that big tag was great for embellishing and using as a focal point.
Relax: This is just a fun page of a snapshot from our vacation last summer. I tried to sneak off to read in peace and these two sweet ones found me after just a few minutes. But we had a nice time relaxing together then. I created the title with some Faber-Castell Gelatos. They act sort of like crayons when you write/draw with them and then when you add a little water they blend together in a really pretty way. Then I cut the title out and assembled the rest of the page.
And that’s my gallery for October! Have a great weekend!
