I’m kinda hooked on Studio Calico and everything related to it. I was hesitant to join since I generally think kits are limiting but looking through the past kits and all the fantastic layouts in the member and design team galleries made me see that the kits were a fan way of 1) getting new supplies 2) being involved in a large online scrapbooking community 3) keeping on top of all the scrapbooking I want/need to do.
11/8 Sunday Sketch
With a monthly kit arriving I would have access to patterned and solid papers, clear rubber stamps, alphabet letters, and embelishments, including chipboard pieces, die cut accents, washi tape, etc. The themes and variety is a lot of fun. But, that is just the main kit! There are add-on kits that you can pick from as well. My budget is not including them right now but I’m still having a blast with the main kit. Plus I have discovered their Sunday Sketch on the Studio Calico blog.
I had fun with this week’s sketch. I had soooo much fun pulling things from the kit and my overall stash. I loved the creamy colored paper from the October “On The Easel” kit so I used that as my background and I pulled the striped paper from the kit as well. I loved the paper’s colors since they went well with the colors in my glasses. The white alphabet letter were also from the kit and I chose them since the white matched the ‘Muggle’ on my shirt. Then the rest is a mix of random trimmings and other things, such as the Indie Girl Flag Banner Stickers and some papers from the Count Me in Wee Bundle I got from Torendi. I sprayed my test strips with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I’m not sure where the pink letters were picked up from, but the rest was from Stampin’ Up!
