Below are a few of the layouts I made with this main kit as well as Add-On Kits Jennifer and Corey, July digital stamps and cut files. These images are all sized pretty big, so click to enlarge. My Studio Calico gallery with additional, detailed images is here. Check out all of the amazing work by the team while you're there. Thanks for taking a peek!
OUR NEST | A little story about feathering our nest. I used the digital stamp in the Corey Card Add-On Kit to cut out the feather design on my Cameo. (Very delicate design so it wasn't perfect, but I'm not sweating it.) I experimented with the colors as I went and later added some details with white and black pens. The Peerless Watercolor Papers are so amazing, I can't even tell you.
NOTED: HER STUFF | My daughter Charlotte is a hoarder. She loves her bits and pieces of toys and I find them in every nook and crany in the house. I know that one day they'll all be cleaned up, put away or donated so I wanted to make a layout to remember it all. (Even though it drives me a little crazy now.)
I used the Peerless Watercolors Papers on white paper to paint gradient colors. I used the Noted digital design in the Jennifer Add-On Kit to make a cut on my Cameo on part of it, the other part I used for the background. I used the embellishments in Jennifer under the Noted cut. I tried to keep the colors of them consistent with the watercolors.
LOVE YOUR FACE | I took this series of Maggie photos in our driveway a few weeks ago, do you think she has personality? For the layout, I had the pleasure of designing some cut files for the shop this month. Yay! I used my own Valley High Circle Web Cut File in the 8.5x11 size on a 12x12 background. The intricate circles have some many possibilities!
I added to the insides of the circles more and more as they get bigger on the page. I used the papers and sequins in the Corey Card Add-On Kit to fill some areas of the circles. I also used some of the negative space paper that was left on the mat after I cut the web for blocking off the white areas.
HEY SISTER | Oh man, did I love the designs of the patterned papers in the Valley High Scrapbooking Kit. For this layout I made a frame of alternating designs, with a selfie of my sister and I as the focal point. My whole idea for this started "Take a Picture It Lasts Longer" die cut in the kit and I figured it out from there. I love the cursive stamps that I used for our little captions too!
