The full reveal of the latest Studio Calico kits "Cirque" is set for under two hours from now, so things are getting rather exciting over there on the blog and message boards!
I was lucky enough as a Contributor to be sent a couple of the scrapbook kits this month and let me tell you they are vibrant, they are on-trend and they are spectacular. Here's a little gathering of some of my favourite bits. And if that doesn't get you in the mood to make something then I don't know what will!
I'm ridiculously ashamed to say that so far I've only had the time to create a single layout from them (I've been SUPER-busy with another secret major project that is set to be revealed rather soon!), but what I did make with the Flying Trapeze and High Wire Add Ons I'm pretty happy with!
There'll be a tutorial on the Studio Calico blog later on in the month sharing my inspiration and process behind making those tassels and feather hanging things.
Along with the reveal of all the kits also comes some new products, and whilst there is lots that are on my shopping list to get if I'm quick enough at reveal (Noah Alphabet Stamps anyone?!), here's just a couple I'll draw your attention to.
rather popular stamp designed by Kim Stewart. You might remember it was included in one of the Add On kits back in October, and among other projects I made this card using it. Pretty cool hey? Well if you missed out on the kit, but just wanted to snatch up the stamp - here's your opportunity!
Don't forget about the digital shop as well (especially good for us International shoppers hey?!). Especially cool addition this year is the digital scrapbook papers, and digital Project Life cards for each months reveal. These are exactly the same as what you get in the kits, so even if you get the real deal you might just want to have a digital back up copy for 'just in case' ;-)
