So now that I've got my Studio Calico kit in my hands, you think I'd be crafting up a storm hey?
Well I am!
Although I must admit, most of my energy has been focused on some other crafty adventures. There's something exciting brewing for next week I tell you - and you won't want to miss out!
But in the meantime, here is the layout that I created that very first night I got my kit. It packs a punch in the colour department doesn't it? And it's actually another perfect example for my Jolly June Challenge (not that that's what I was thinking).
I've used some of my favourite techniques here. You may have noticed them time after time in my layouts. And that's misting and masking, and most especially sewing. Lately I can't seem to finish a layout without pulling out the sewing machine. Of course, it surely helps having a brand-spanking new machine with lots of lovely features :-)
And I've also used some of my favourite products from the kit (and add-on) such as those Making Memories metal flowers, the washi tape, and the Buzz and Bloom clouds. Not to mention the Studio Calico stamp, the K&Co alphas and the Basic Grey kraft border stickers. And then there's the yummy papers, the Jenni Bowlin buttons and the October Afternoon label stickers.
Hhhmmmm, did I just mention every single thing on this page?
How about drawing your attention to the cute photo of my daughter lying in the grass?
