studio calico reveal: spencer's

It's time for the reveal of Studio Calico's April kits, Spencer's! Studio Calico is mixing it up a bit this month. There are two scrapbook add ons, one card add on and a Project Life add on, plus an awesome Project Life stamp that can be purchased separately -

Here's what I made with this month's kits - three Project Life spreads and one handbook spread. Just click on the image to be taken to the spread in the Studio Calico gallery where you will find detail photos and products used. I've made a few layouts too, and I'll share them soon.

Weeks 6 and 7

Week 8
Week 9
Handbook - 2004 Disney Trip

I decided to start a handbook, one of the Studio Calico 6x8 Project Life style binders, to document some past unscrapped years. My plan is to just do a little at a time. They are currently sold out at Studio Calico, but there are some albums and page protectors available at Simon Says Stamp.

I hope you enjoy the Spencer's kits! There were so many fun elements and patterned papers with great colors this month. My favorite embellishment is the cork cameras!

crate paper: layouts inspired by cards

I'm sharing three layouts today here and also over on the Crate Paper blog. These layouts were created with cards as inspiration - something I've never done before. I thought it would be fun to recreate some of my favorite cards from Pinterest, but in a totally different way - on a layout! Even though I rarely make cards, I still pin lots of them because there are so many amazing card makers out there. I enjoyed the opportunity to use them as inspiration!

Here are the three lovely cards I chose...

Happy Birthday by Kelly Rasmussen

I Love You by Maggie Holmes

Hello You by Maile Belles

And here are the layouts they inspired...

So if you're looking for a different kind of inspiration, give cards a try. There are lots to be found on pinterest!

Below you'll find links to some of the products used on these layouts.

studio calico: spencer's sneaks

The time to reveal the Studio Calico April kits is getting close... less than a week! I have some sneaks to share today. But first, if you haven't checked out the beautiful main scrapbook kit from last month's Neverland kits, you should! I had so much fun with this kit! Here's a look at what's included.

This kit is still available here. The papers and embellishments are gorgeous and it even includes a chevron mask and a mini Mister Huey!

If you want to see the official sneaks for April's kits, Spencer's, click here. With April's kits, I made three spreads. I combined weeks 6 and 7 because I didn't take a lot of photos those weeks. I'm hoping I'll have the chance to make some layouts next week. Here's a peek of what I've done so far...

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
