First of all there came the announcement today that I have been named as one of the Scrapbooking Memories Masters for 2014 and I couldn't be happier. This is something that I've thought about applying for the last couple of years but the timing has never been right. And this year when I was contemplating it again so many of you gave me such encouragement to give it a go. I know I wouldn't be here today without you all :-)
But before the Masters announcement there was this.....
I'm still pinching myself to see if I'll wake up from this dream.. but I was invited to become part of the Studio Calico Creative Team! Eeek and excitement!! I feel like someone handed me a Golden Ticket (and yes, I'd definitely compare Studio Calico to the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory of the scrapbooking world!!)
In a flurry of Christmas business I received my first lot of January kits last week and have been crafting up a storm to get all my layouts done because already it's time to reveal the sneaks...
The two photos above are from my pages made with the Main Kit - see those puffy hearts? Yep. Officially in love! And a return of the classic Studio Calico Noah alpha.. this time in woodgrain sticker form. It doesn't get any better than that ;-)
As for the Add-ons, well I'm still deciding which one is my favourite, so I just went ahead and made a layout with each of them. Above is my page using Add-on 3: "Slingshot", and below you'll see a sneak of my page using Add-on 1: "Freemont Glades".
But the winner is probably going to be Add-on 2: "High Point" because it's school themes come at the perfect time for end-of-year celebrations and ready for the commencement of the new year. I can't wait to show you what I've done to include some important memorabilia on this layout!
