studio calico: here and there

Studio Calico's new release, Here & There, is such a fun collection! The colors, patterns and embellishments are just awesome! I used it to make a couple of layouts this weekend with photos from a vacation a few years back.

On the first one I used the Sundrifter Love This and Frame and Feathers stamp sets with Hero Arts charcoal ink. And the little hearts are from the Here & There Cats and Dogs stamp set. The "Oh Happy Day" part of the title was cut from one of the 4x6 cards in the Here & There Journal Cards set. I totally forgot about journaling on this page. I have a bad habit of completely finishing my page and then thinking about where I want to add journaling. As soon as I find my notes about how long this canoe trip lasted, I'll probably add a couple of sentences written very small under the photo on the left.

On this one I even used my Mister Hueys. I've been in a misting mood lately. And I remembered to journal this time! I used the more grid cards available at Studio Calico. They come in a set of 60 square cards for $4.99. There are four different grid designs in three different colors. They are for Project Life, but also perfect for adding to a layout. I cut the card in half so it would fit better. The "You Are Awesome" part of this title also came from one of the Here & There journal cards. The only part of this layout that is not from the Here & There collection is the wood veneer. The # sign is from the Snippets collection and the "life is good" circle is from the Sundrifter collection.

Don't forget - only two more days until the beautiful March kits go on sale at Studio Calico! I have a lot to share this week so be sure and check back. I've linked up some of the products I used in my Here & There layouts below.
