The Underground Sneaks

Studio Calico's October Kits are just around the corner and the Mood Board hints at all the typical Fall and Halloween colour schemes you would probably expect in an American kit released at this time of year. And even though I am obviously not quite in that same state of mind, it was pretty hard to resist this amount of gorgeousness...


The official Main Kit sneaks confirm what you might have imagined - lots of green, gold and brown which is altogether fabulous. And honestly, it's not like I don't still have Autumn photos to scrap, or couldn't use that type of colour scheme for something else. But having just entered Spring and having a bunch of new and sunshiney photos to scrap I wanted to go a slightly different direction.


Surprisingly, the Main Kit also contains hints of more feminine and softer colours and both of these following 2 sneaks from my own layouts have been made with the Main Kit Only.


And if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you would have known how excited I got when I discovered this new-to-me lime green, pink, black and white combination (all from the Main Kit) and I've used it a few times throughout my five projects.


And like all good kits, if you augment with a different colour altogether you can stretch your kit into whole new territory as well. So here I added in some bright blue and it helped sell the Spring time story I was telling on this layout.


Now lets talk about the Add Ons!
Add On 1 "Piccadilly" is definitely the kit for all the gold lovers. Shiny gold alphas, sparkly gold patterned paper, and an exclusive Color Theory gold paint are all included.


This is such a pretty kit and I couldn't help but make my first pregnancy layout with it. I should be more careful though, I mean... what if this one is a boy and all these early layouts filling his album are going to be so frilly and feminine? I guess it's just because that's what I'm used to!


Add On 2 "Notting Hill" is more your clean and graphic kit with lots of classic patterns, and those darling wood veneer/enamel dot chevron pieces which have just become my new favourite.


Of course, you can always mix and match the kits and here on this fairytale layout I added in the stamp and gold paint from Piccadilly to give it a softer look.


Add On 3 "King's Cross" is embellishments only as usual and there's lots of really fun things in this kit. Those travel rubons I'm saving for after my current holiday, but the sticker sheet and washi tape got a work out on this yummy dessert page below.


Oh yeah, and I used that pink, green, black and white combination again ;-)


Now since I'm in a celebratory kind of mood I thought I'd do a Giveaway! I've got a spare September Poet Society Card Kit Paper Pack, Jar Stamp Set and wooden banners pack to give to someone lucky.

To win it, all you need to do is go over to either my One Scrappy Doctor Facebook Page or my personal Instagram account and 'Like' or 'Follow' me there (you don't need to do both, but you can if you want to!!) and then come back here and tell me which one you follow me on. There are advantages to it.... I often share things on there that never make it to my blog such as sneaks, projects I'm working on, family news and frequent giveaways ;-) I'll also give you another entry into this draw on both of those sites!

Giveaway will close on midnight Sunday 28th AEST time and I'll draw a winner on Monday morning. International entries are more than welcome.
