Today I'm happy to share the scrapbook layouts I created for Studio Calico using their February Front Row Kits and Add-Ons. I'll be featuring my Studio Calico Project Life Kit designs on the blog tomorrow.
These images are all sized pretty big, so click to enlarge. My Studio Calico gallery with additional detail images is here. Hope you like 'em!
L.A. | I am a huge fan of all things black and white, so when I saw some of the papers, ribbon and alphas in the Front Row Scrapbook Kit, I knew I wanted to run with it. The only color on the page is an Instagram self portrait I took in Santa Monica while out was out west for CHA. I used to live in L.A. and haven't been back since we moved four years ago. Love this city!
SUPER MAGGIE! | My daughter the superhero. The girls are always asking us to make capes out of towels or blankets at bedtime so when we saw these capes, we knew they would be a hit Christmas morning. Maggie was rocking it!
It was pure luck that there were so many red and blue designs in the kits this month to match the photo. I used the Front Row Scrapbook kit, The Junior Mints Add-On Kit and the "Love This" card is from the Project Life kit, I'm crazy about the font. Layered it all on an 8.5x11 canvas.
HELLO | This 8.5x11 layout was inspired by the awesome Hello stamp in this month's Front Row Card Kit. I used the digital version over a photo of Charlotte and built my patterned papers around it. These papers are a mix of designs from the main Scrapbook Kit, and the Junior Mints and Big Screen Add-On Kits.
I used the stamp as a journaling prompt. I typed up the text in Photoshop and ran my tag through my printer. (I have a tutorial on how to do this here.)
STOP THE INSANITY | Tina Azmus designed the most brilliant stamp for the Big Screen Add-On Kit. I had to use it. What's been having me say $&#%! lately? My home office. My closet is under construction so everything is everywhere and I feel like a hoarder. Working on it!
I designed this on a 5x7 canvas to be able to pop into a page protectors for my Project Life album. A mini layout! I printed out the text strips from Photoshop and curled them up for a little dimension. The striped washi tape is also from the Big Screen Kit.
