Its Reveal night at Studio Calico. The gallery and kits went live for public around 50 minutes ago!
Quilting Bee, Wedding Ring, Patchwork, More Patterned Paper and Add On Patterned Paper are still available for you to snag. Honeycomb however, sold out in
I only had around 48 hours to work with the kit due to the long weekend of the Lunar New Year celebration, but I have loads more to play with and will absolutely do so and share it here on the ol' blog :)
Have you seen her around?
I used Adirondack's Dimensional Pearl in Stream to alter the color of the butterfly chipboard. I used my fingers. Messy, but fun. No dimension at all, but it has a beautiful sheen on it.
Martha Stewart butterfly punch. I used the one similar like this one Studio Calico has in shop, but with two smaller little butterflies. You can see the 'mama' butterflies on close up #1 :)
Let me just say this one is my favorite right now. Too much stuff for some of you (and me too sometime), maybe, but for now, this feels perfect. I plan to hang this somewhere in the house, maybe by 2015. (you know me, eh?)
I misted the wooden veneer. They're so fun to work with! oh how I *dig* SC's exclusive products :) April & Co. has a way of making people feel special! I used some other brand, but I think you could achieve the look by using Blue Corn Metallic Mist.
Speaking of which, Studio Calico has all the new release of Maya Mist in the shop! RUN! ( i'm telling you to do a lot of running in this post, eh?) I'm serious, run and get yours. Remember, all orders ship free with your kit, so now is a good time! I am having a hard time choosing, might have to get them all! (please don't kill me, Mr Husband. LOL)
Crackle painted and stickled butterflies. And oh, that loopy border punch, please expect to see it on my layout, more often than not. *grins*
Crackle painted chipboards, again, misted veneer again. White dots on the veneer - those are dimensional pearls. Twine on buttons, love.
I used Storytime Alphabets to stamp the title on brown cardstock, then embossed with white.
This is a lift of Flo, one of the many talented members we have at Studio Calico. Every one of the DT-ers is lifting someone this month! Fun!
Darling Flo, thank you for letting me lift your fabulous layout, Girl! *hugs*
I flipped her design upside down, while still keeping very close to the original layout. Dear Lizzy rub ons *swoon*
I thought the Sassafrass paper was perfect for the page. Photo of Nidhi taken a few years back when she just started reading.
and my love affair with DYMO continues. . .
bannanah (you didn't leave a link, or I would've emailed you - I bought some DYMO refill tapes like this one, from my LSS. I can get colors like yellowish orange/dark green from the bookstore at the mall but i really love that pink one.
Please, feel free to shoot me with questions if you have any. Anything-at-all.
In the meantime, feast your eyes... the DT Gallery is bursting with inspirations!
