studio calico park ave sneaks

The December kits go on sale soon at Studio Calico! Actually, reveal falls on Thanksgiving this year. Subscribers can shop at noon Eastern, and everyone else can shop 12 hours later. The kits have such a lovely color palette this month with some pinks and purples thrown in! These two colors are not usually my favorites, but the kits are so perfectly put together with just the right combinations of colors that I really enjoyed working with them, and the colors complemented my October photos nicely. Here's a sneak of the spread I made with only the main Project Life kit.


I also made a handbook spread using the Grand Central Project Life add-on. The puppy stamp is the cutest!


The card kits has gorgeous papers and a really fun stamp set that includes buildings for creating a skyline. The stamps would be great for scrapbooking a trip to a big city besides all the cute cards you can make!

I made three more cards which I will share along with my full Project Life spreads on Thursday this week. Hope you are enjoying this Thanksgiving week!

scrapbooking podcasts

Do you listen to podcasts? I admit, I'm addicted. They make my walks much more enjoyable, and since I got my fitbit back in June, I've been motivated to make sure I get as many steps as possible every day. Here's a list of my favorite podcasts about scrapbooking - 

The ScrapGals Podcast (my favorite, especially their recent December Daily episode!)

The Paperclipping Roundtable

The Digi Show (no longer being updated, but lots of great past shows to listen to)

Daily Digi Digest

I also listen to a couple non-scrapbook related podcasts - Pop Culture Happy Hour, and of course I'm hooked on the new true crime mystery, Serial. If you have any other favorites, let me know. I'm always looking for more!

And because a post doesn't feel complete without a photo, here are some pretty fall leaves from this morning's walk. :)

studio calico reveal: walden

I'm really excited to share the projects I made with the Studio Calico Walden kits! (If you aren't a subscriber this link won't work until midnight Eastern tonight). The Walden gallery is live so you can check out all the projects made by the creative team now if you'd like.

Here are the projects I made this month - just click on the image to take you to the Studio Calico gallery where you can see detail photos and products used. The Walden card kit has the cutest stamp set! I can't decide if I like the acorn or the apple more!!





This adorable french fry stamp set is also available, and who doesn't love french fries?!!



This recap of our September was created with only the main Project Life kit. I so love the soft colors and the cute heart stamp in this kit.



I also made a handbook spread about March using the Firchburg add-on to fill in some spots in the book I started earlier this year.



Be sure to check out the Project Life Christmas add-on, Garland Road. I'll be using it for either my Project Life pages this December or maybe a December Daily. I love all that wood veneer and the adorable stamp set!


What's your favorite kit this month? I'm going to have to choose the card kit  because I just love the apple and acorn, plus the papers are really cute and the black tags are great too!
