The One with Studio Calico PENNY ARCADE Video

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Once in a while I get to film how to videos using Studio Calico kits and I LOVE creating them! When I first started making how to scrapbooking videos I would shake as I was scrapping because I was soooo nervous! Why? I don't even know! But every video gets easier and easier :) Here is the layout I made using Studio Calico PENNY ARCADE scrapbook kits:

DESCRIPTION: All of the supplies (except a few noted below) are found in the Studio Calico PENNY ARCADE scrapbook kits and add ons! I wanted to create a layout showing the technique for backing cut files so I used a big and basic shape. Then I chose a rainbow of patterned papers for the pie chart to make an eye catching design. Another one of my favorite techniques is to layer color-on-color so I found matching embellishments and placed them in the pie chart pieces.

JOURNALING SAYS: Love my little family oh so much!

HOW TO: Turn the pie chart from the Penny Arcade Project Life Digital Stamps into a cut file then die cut it from white cardstock. For help on how to do this, the Cameo Basics Studio Calico class is a great place to start!
Use the largest "slice" as a template to cut 8 slices from a rainbow of patterned papers. Place foam squares on the back of the pie chart then adhere the papers. Glue the pie chart in the center of a white cardstock layout background. Sew a few circles around the pie chart using white thread for texture. Add a black and white photo to the middle. Fill the pie chart slices with matching colored embellishments. Paint a wood veneer number with mist and add it to the pie chart. Print labels and printables, trim them out, and add them to the pie chart as well. Stamp the date, write a line of journaling, and drop three colors of spray mist on the coordinating slice.

  3. EEEKKKKK!!! LOVING this!!!! PINNING!!!!!

  4. Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

    Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

    Sodarshan Kriya

    Sat Nam Kriya

    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a few days.

    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu PDF

    Govinda Lilamrta PDF
