copper mountain scrapbook layouts

Finally, things have slowed down. I decided not to return to the Crate Paper team because I wanted more time to make things that I want to make. Last year I could barely keep up with assignments, but this year will be different. I'm only working for Studio Calico, which I'm happy about because they happen to be my favorite company! I am on their Project Life and Card teams. But I also love to make layouts so I'll still be making as many as I have time for. One change at Studio Calico this year is the way the Creative Team gets our kits. Last year we were able to get any of the kits we wanted in advance. This year we only get the kits related to the team we are on so I decided to sub to the scrapbook kit.

I made two layouts with the Copper Mountain scrapbook kit. (You can see the cards and Project Life spreads I made with the Copper Mountain kits in my gallery.) 

I used white backgrounds for both, but one was the American Crafts textured cardstock I normally use from the more white add-on, and the other is a warmer white in a pebble finish.

Most of what you see is from the scrapbook kit, but the letters in my title, Fourteen, are the Tyler letterpress and die cut alphas from the Studio Calico shop. Instead of the letterpress inks, I used Hero Arts shadow inks in soft pool, navy and butter bar. I do love the look of the letterpress inks, but when I'm in a hurry I use my stamp inks because the clean up is so much easier. 

The Copper Mountain scrapbook and Project Life kits are still available here and the Sugar Rush kits are available now too with a totally different color scheme. Which ones do you prefer? With having two boys I'm used to using primary colors more which is fine with me because they've always been my favorite, but I sure did enjoy the softer colors of Sugar Rush kits. I'm starting to think I might even like pink. :)


  1. Love that the layouts are so colorful <3

  2. Copper Mtn was perfect for my fall photos, but I'm so looking forward to the Sugar Rush kit for something different! Great layouts :)

  3. TFS! I really liked the Copper Mountain colors, so I think I'll prefer that kit. But I'll have to see Sugar Rusg IRL to really know.

  4. Seriously awesome layouts, love the colors!
