Latest News at Studio Calico

So it's been ages since I last blogged (by my standards anyway!) and that's because since I started my maternity leave at the start of last week it's been one 'adventure' after another. For a start, I ironically found myself getting admitted to hospital as a patient on Day 2. What a different perspective!! Everything is all ok now, but I have to take it easy for the rest of my pregnancy. Meanwhile, I've also been busy working on some super secret crafty projects which will all be revealed soon ;-) And yes, I do consider crafting as fitting into the category of 'taking it easy'!.... it's not a 14 hour shift on the labour ward after all!!

So here's some things that have been going on in the world of Studio Calico that I need to share with you. Because it's awesome is why ;-)

The new size albums have just been released in the shop. What's this new size you might ask? It's 9x12" and I reckon that's just going to be perfect for me. For 2015 I've been contemplating how I go about my version of Project Life. Currently I work in a 6x8" Handbook which I've been loving - but I've dabbled with the idea of going larger. However, the 12x12" Project Life albums still scare me as I think about how I would fill up all that space! So perhaps this is the perfect middle ground... now I just need to figure out what colour scheme to go with. These are the choices: 

Colors Available for 9x12" Albums (numbers correspond to photo above):

1. Woodgrain Cloth
2. Black Cloth
3. Linen Cloth
4. Gold Classic Leather
5. White Classic Leather
6. Clean Slate Cloth

Colors Available for 6x8" Handbooks:
7. Black Cloth
8. Woodgrain Cloth

Two new Handbooks have been released too. Keep in mind, these are a whole new version of Handbook - they've got 6 rings which make them compatible with lots of other brands of organisers, but they aren't compatible with the old Handbooks.

And here's the new styles of page protectors that are available for purchase as well. I love the smaller square ones! These are the multipacks that are available right now, but on the 28th they'll also be available to purchase as individual packs.

PS. If you're been thinking of a new kit subscription for 2015 then I can't recommend Studio Calico highly enough. And that's not just a biased opinion because I'm on the Contributing Team - I've actually been a subscriber myself since 2009 so I think I know what I'm talking about :-)

Or perhaps you're interested in the latest classes? The excitement is certainly building for Marcy Penner's On The Grid class, the sneaks on Instagram have been insane! 

Marcy Penner shares her secrets for using a grid based design to create perfectly pulled together projects in a flash. You'll get Marcy's expertise in multiple areas to create the perfect base for your projects by exploring using basic grids, playing with design through the use of tags and other materials, and getting out of the square format by experimenting with other shapes or stamps.

While supplies last, On the Grid students will receive a bonus class kit containing enamel dots, die cuts, stickers and 2 veneer grids. This kit will ship for free, no matter where you are. Anything that you order along with the class will be held and shipped with the kit. Suggested class supplies can be found here in the shop.

Registration has already begun, and class starts on February 2nd. Register here.

Well that's it for now. I'll be back real soon with a few projects to share!
