The CAMELOT kits are now available at Studio Calico!
The colors and products were so easy to combine and work with this month, I even tried some new things like "mixed media" :)

GOOD TIMES by Paige Evans

Description: I got the opportunity once again to design a couple of exclusive cut files for Studio Calico for the month of May and used the FRAMES background on this layout! So I used the cut file and only the GUINEVERE add on to create this entire layout.
Journaling says: Barbara had everyone blow bubbles to get some fun and artistic photos to scrapbook! I'll do lots of things just to get a good pic :) I had a blast teaching at the Crop am Rhein 2014!

How to: Die cut the FRAMES background I designed for this month's Studio Calico kits from white cardstock. Back the openings with one photo and the papers from the GUINEVERE add on then replace the frame centers with foam dots. Embellish with star die cuts, chevron stickers, eyelet stickers, a chipboard title, and mini alphabet stickers. Journal on one of the frames. Drop different colors of spray mist around the layout.

Supplies: Scrapbook kit: GUINEVERE by Studio Calico; Cardstock, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Spray mist: Mr. Huey's by Studio CalicoDie cut machine: Silhouette Cameo by QuicKutz"Frames" background cut file: Paige Evans for Studio Calico

Description: The other cut file I designed exclusively for Studio Calico for May kits is the DOT SCALLOPS background which I used on this layout as well as only products from the EXCALIBUR add on. This layout was fun to make because it was a little out of the norm for me in that I didn't use lots of color! But it was a great challenge to create something that still felt authentic to me and my style!
Journaling says: Sweet little Jane running around Barcelona Spain without a care int eh world! Cutie!

How to: Die cut the DOT SCALLOPS background from blue cardstock then staple it to the "Lovely Floral" paper by Echo Park Paper Co. Layer vellum, a vintage book page, tag, doily (with the gold side down), photo, gold cupcake liner, ticket, sequins, and a wood veneer rose on the bottom right corner. Place mini alphabet stickers along the curve of the doily for a title. Write journaling on a tag and glue it to the top left corner along with another gold foil cupcake liner and more sequins. Drop blue spray mist around the layout.

BARCELONA by Paige Evans

Description: The XO background cut file by Barbara Picinich is top notch. I wish I had thought of it :) I used her cut file and elements from the CAMELOT main kit to create this whimsical layout.

Journaling says: The best moments from our trip to Barcelona.

How to: Die cut the XO background cut file from vanilla cardstock, fold and staple the letters in place, then back each opening with papers from the CAMELOT main kit. Adhere tiny photos around the layout. Accent the layout with puffy flower stickers, a stickpin, gold chevron rub on, and a puffy letter stickers title. Crinkle a bit of the top and bottom edges then drop gold spray mist across the layout. Journal a little bit on the top row of die cuts.

HELLO by Paige Evans

Description: Paper weaving is still one of my favorite things to do with patterned paper! So I used all of the papers (and even tearaway strips!) from the CAMELOT main kit to create this page. I tried my hand at the "mixed media" look and while I'll admit I'm an amateur, it was still fun to try!

Journaling says: I'll be yours and you'll be mine.

How to: Trim all the patterned papers and tearaway strips into 1/4" strips then weave them around the edges of a kraft cardstock background. Sew diagonally across each corner. Using the round star mask, spray white mist over it in three places inside the "frame". Trim flowers from patterned papers then layer then as well as photos and frames die cut from white cardstock over the sprayed areas. Apply gold rub ons to the top layer and embellish with puffy stickers.

Description: For my last layout I used supplies from all of the kits: CAMELOTEXCALIBUR, GUINEVERE, and MERLIN. Using a gray cardstock background helped the colors of the papers POP! And I created chevrons stripes across the background using a square punch. I ❤ chevrons.

Journaling says: Oops. Forgot to add some. I'll do that later :)

How to: Punch 1" squares from each of the patterned papers in all of the kits. Trim the squares in half to make triangles then place them in chevrons stripes down a gray cardstock layout. Stitch the patterned paper pieces in place. Drop white paint and white spray mist across the layout and let it dry. Tear a piece of vintage book paper then layer it along with a kraft envelope, photobooth strips, acrylic letters, gold glitter star stickers, tab sticker with the date stamped on it, "you and me" sticker, number stickers for the year, and a geotag sticker on the middle of the layout. Die cut the "hello" sentiment from white cardstock then staple it to the top of the pictures. Glue buttons and sequins around the layout.
